Many people view chiropractors with skepticism, and we always recommend seeing a medical doctor first. However, if you’ve been involved in a car accident, a bicycle accident or a motorcycle accident, you may have thought about seeing a chiropractor. Chiropractors can be very beneficial in finding and treating particular types of injuries, such as soft tissue injuries—particularly when receiving complementary treatment, like physical therapy.
Unfortunately, many people who are involved in automobile accidents do not seek out chiropractic care. They may instead settle their cases, anxious to put the accident behind them, only to discover later that they have a soft tissue injury. When an accident victim feels better a week or two after an accident, they can understandably be excited resolve their claim with the insurance company.
However, it’s important to know that once you sign a release with an insurance company and receive the settlement, it is too late to recover more money if health problems arise later. Some injuries, in particular soft tissue injuries, do not cause any problems for months or years. Therefore, it is important that after a car accident in San Francisco, you find a chiropractor for a consultation. In some cases, the chiropractor can discover medical issues caused by the car accident of which you weren’t aware. Those medical issues may not cause you any pain for months or years, but when they do it will be too late to recover additional money for your medical bills.
