Car accidents can be terrifying, life alternating events. After you've been involved in one, there are a lot of details to take care of. While you probably know how to go about getting your car fixed or replaced, there isn't a lot of guidance to get you through the process of getting your health back. Follow these tips to help get back to normal. At Darin Chiropractic in Granite City, IL, we know how to help patients fully recover after an auto accident and prevent pain or discomfort from returning.
To start, get a medical evaluation. Whether this is initially done by a chiropractor or a traditional medical doctor, just make sure that it accurately identifies all your injuries. This evaluation will be used throughout your care process and by your insurance company to evaluate your claim, so take the time to get it done right.
Next, make room in your schedule for medical and chiropractor care. This care is usually rather time-consuming, especially in the few weeks after the accident. It can be difficult to fit all the appointments into a busy schedule made more complicated by your need to recover and replace your transportation. All too often, it's tempting to skip appointments, especially once your body starts to heal and periods of being pain-free last for longer periods of time.
Keep good records of your care. While all your providers will keep their own records, it's a good idea to have a set of your own. Ask our chiropractor to help you keep up with these records. As your care progresses, this will help you to track how far you've come.
