Traffic in Winnipeg is not always what we would hopefor, the roads can be slippery, the potholes large and the other drivers.......
Injuries from auto accidents are common and we want to make sure that people get the care they need. Auto accidents can throw off your entire life: personal, social, recreational, and of course, work.
After your accident, no matter how you are feeling, we recommend coming in and getting checked out. We will do a full assessment including your neck, spine, and other joints that could be affected. If necessary, we can do an X-Ray to make sure there are no more serious bony injuries such as fractures.
If we find an injury we will provide you with a treatment recommendation. It is our goal to restore you to full health again but it is totally your decision what to do about our recommendation. Some patients come in for a few visits. Some stay for regular maintenance after an accident. That choice is yours.
As you get treatment, you should notice that it is helping relativley quickly. There should be incremental improvement in how you move and a decrease in the level of pain you feel. Typical improvement is about two weeks as your tissues start to heal. Of course, some days you may feel tighter or with a little more pain (the body does this sometimes). Overall, however, you should feel better with time.
Auto accidents are rough on our bodies and our psyche. Chiropractors are well trained to diagnose, treat and mange accident related injures. Chiropractic care is fully funded by MPIC and there are no out of pocket expenses for you.
If you've been injured in an accident, please come in for a visit and we will get you on the path to recovery right away.
