Car Accident Medical EvaluationCaron Chiropractic Clinic operates two offices—one in St. Paul and one in North Oaks, Minnesota. If you have been in a car accident and are suffering from pain, stiffness, whiplash, a concussion or other injury, you may need a medical evaluation. A thorough medical evaluation can ensure that you get the treatment that you need and that your injuries are documented so that you can consider being reimbursed by an insurance company for your pain and suffering. Our staff at Caron Chiropractic has the experience and expertise to offer an accurate medical evaluation following an auto accident, and provide a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan to get you back on the road to recovery.

Car Accident Treatment

If you have been in a car accident, our team can evaluate your injuries and help you on your journey back to your pre-accident condition. First, though, we want you to know that we will treat you as unique, because you are, and address your chiropractic issues based on your unique circumstances before applying our expertise and experience. Car accidents often cause issues in individuals that require spinal rehabilitation, a category of treatment protocols that give us a range of possible ways of treating you.

After a car accident, you may know immediately that something is wrong and you need treatment. But it is also possible that the effects of a car accident may not appear right away. Whichever is the case for you, it will be important for you to understand the common bodily responses to car accidents. If you experience any of the following symptoms after an auto accident, you should seek medical care:

● Whiplash symptoms, mainly associated with neck injuries, caused by the sharp movement of the head during a car accident.
● Pain, tingling, numbness, or stiffness that was not present prior to the accident.
● Excessive fatigue or disrupted sleep patterns.
● Dizziness (vertigo) and disorientation.
● Blurry vision.
● Ringing in your ears.
● Nausea and/or vomiting.
● Lower back pain, knee pain, or pain in arms, legs, feet or hands.
● Headaches, which could indicate the presence of concussion syndrome. Severe whiplash can cause concussion symptoms. Concussions can occur even with minimal or no impact to your head.

Auto Accident Recovery

The first step in treating you after a car accident involves an assessment of your condition—this is the medical evaluation portion of your treatment following a car accident. Following the medical evaluation, we will work with you to identify and fully explain our recommended treatment plan. There is no shortage of approaches we can take, including massage, exercise, rehabilitation, and chiropractic adjustments – and all methods of treatment are offered with care and expertise.
