Auto accidents can be extremely traumatic and can leave people with physical and mental complications. After an auto accident, people must deal with insurance, both their own and the other drivers. Then they may have to consult with a lawyer to protect themselves in the event of personal injury. However, the most important step to take after an auto accident is getting medical treatment to help reduce the mental and physical difficulties caused by the accident. In most cases of an auto accident, whiplash and back pain are the most common injuries.
At Giles Chiropractic in Napa, our staff understands the complexities of personal injury cases, and we take great pride in helping our patients fully recover after an auto accident injury.
To help you recover from your auto accident injury, our office has excellent relationships with local orthopedists, neurologists, MRI facilities, and physical therapists. We will only refer you to the most reputable professionals to care for your acute trauma injuries.
In our Napa office at Giles Chiropractic, we analyze, diagnose, and treat the various complexities of whiplash and soft tissue injuries that are caused by an auto accident. Additionally, we have an x-ray machine at our Napa office that can expedite the recovery process by allowing Dr. Kristen Giles, DC to pinpoint the exact locations in need of a chiropractic adjustment.
If you have been in an auto accident recently, there are some important decisions you need to make, and it's crucial to make these decisions immediately. Do not delay because time is not on your side.
We will immediately refer you for an MRI or any imaging studies necessary to evaluate the extent of your injuries. We also work with other local medical specialists such as orthopedics and neurologists to provide any additional necessary care.
Documented studies done by Charles Carroll, M.D., Paul McAtee, M.D. and Lee Riley, M.D. revealed that: "The amount of damage to the automobile bears little relation to the force applied to the cervical spine (neck) of the occupants."
In other words, the damage to the passengers is not necessarily directly related to the damage to the vehicle. Thus all auto accident injuries need to be immediately evaluated by a qualified specialist like Dr. Kristen Giles, DC.
In most cases, your auto accident insurance will pay 100% for the cost of your chiropractic care. Our Office can assist you in obtaining this information. Using your medical coverage should not raise your premiums.
Do not sign or settle anything until you have consulted with an auto accident injury specialist. If you settle before your injury is fully resolved, you will risk having to pay out of pocket for your care.
You need a doctor who specializes in providing the necessary care and diagnosis of auto accident injuries. Usually hospitals check vital signs, ensure that there are no life-threatening conditions, and then release the patient with a pain relief medication. They normally do not provide extended healthcare for the underlying injuries that can often lead to future pain. Thus, after your hospital visit you need to make an immediate appointment with a specialist like Dr. Kristen Giles, DC.
The care is comfortable and quite soothing. Our patients look forward to the care they receive during their office visits.
Yes. The care is safe and gentle. In fact, we have patients that range from newborn infants, children, to the elderly who receive effective relief.
