Auto Accident Injury Treatment at
Brown Chiropractic Center

Man in pain after auto accidentEvery day, people in the Greenville area are injured in automobile accidents. We specialize in helping people recover from the resulting injuries. There are many types of pain that can follow a car collision. You might experience one or more of the following:

  • Headaches
  • Whiplash
  • Low or mid-back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Stiffness and soreness
  • Numbness or tingling in extremities
  • Pain radiating to the shoulder and arm
  • Sciatica

The Effects of an Impact on Your Body

The forces of an impact are absorbed by the body. We’re not designed to withstand these powerful forces. If you’re hit from the back or front, your neck is pushed into unnatural positions. You will likely have a joint that isn’t functioning as it should. If left untreated, it will lead to degeneration, osteoarthritis and of course, pain. The discomfort can last for years, making it of utmost importance that you’re examined by an expert in auto accident care.

The Quicker You Get Evaluated, the Better You’ll Heal

What you might think is simple stiffness or soreness could actually be a serious soft tissue injury. Too often, we see people who assumed that their pain would go away over time. In fact, it usually becomes worse. As time goes by, your condition will become more difficult to correct. The sooner you are examined, the better your prognosis will be.

Hospital Emergency Rooms take care of potentially fatal issues. If you aren’t bleeding and don’t seem to have internal injuries, you’ll likely be sent home with a muscle relaxer or pain pill. The doctors and nurses there don’t always evaluate joint injuries since they aren’t life-threatening.

What to Expect

Before you come in for your first appointment, you will have some actions to take, including calling your auto insurance company and opening up a claim. Then, we will have you complete some paperwork. You will meet with Dr. Brown and give him an account of what happened during the accident. We also will get your insurance information.

After he hears the details of what happened, Dr. Brown will perform the following:

  • Physical examination
  • X-rays (if necessary )
  • Range-of-motion testing
  • Orthopedic testing
  • Neurological testing
  • Chiropractic testing
  • Vital signs

If you’re in a high degree of pain Dr. Brown may provide you with therapy that day to help alleviate your discomfort. Dr. Brown will show you your X Rays and explain in detail your injuries and the best way to treat them.

Your Customized Care Plan

Once he’s gathered the findings of your exam and X-rays Dr. Brown will present you with a customized care plan detailing the frequency and number of visits to get you on the path to healing.

In addition to providing chiropractic care, Dr. Brown has many therapy modalities on-site. These include electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound, cold laser therapy, non-surgical spinal decompression and traction. These treatment modalities are very effective in treating car accident injuries.

Working With Your Insurance or Attorney

We’ll work with your attorney or insurance adjuster to make sure that you receive the care you need. If you would like to find an attorney, we’ll be happy to refer you to someone specialized in auto accidents Greenville. You deserve to be free of stress during this trying time, and we’ll be happy to take care of the details for you.
