Hood View Chiropractic Offers Immediate Care in Gresham After a Motor Vehicle Accident
After being involved in a motor vehicle accident, seeking chiropractic care may be the last thing on your mind. Perhaps your greatest immediate concern is your car, or other more noticeable injuries sustained during the collision. However, seeking care immediately after a motor vehicle accident is extremely important. Adrenaline may initially prevent you from immediately feeling pain from all injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident, but failing to address a potential injury can result in long-term pain.
PIP Covers Medical Care and Chiropractic Care for Auto Related Injuries
In Oregon, Personal Injury Protection (PIP) pays for reasonable and necessary medical treatment for all injured occupants in auto accident for up to one year, or until a policy dollar limit is reached, typically a maximum of $15,000.
The reason people choose chiropractic care for treatment of injuries sustained in auto accidents is simple – chiropractic care is exceptional in the treatment of soft tissue injuries, especially of the spine. Since the most common injuries associated with these events are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments, it is only natural that chiropractic be the treatment of choice.

Whiplash and Indicators
Whiplash can occur even at low-speed impacts. Whiplash destabilizes the spine and can cause severe pain, as well as:
– Blurred vision
– Neck pain
– Shoulder pain
– Reduced range of motion in the neck
– Arm pain
– Neck stiffness
– Low back pain
In addition to causing new pain, whiplash can also cause relapses of an older condition. Motor Vehicle Accident victims in the Gresham area should not hesitate to seek out help immediately after being involved in an auto collision.
