Car Accident Treatment

Injuries resulting from car accidents are quite common, and can have long lasting effects if not treated promptly. Accidents may result in an inability to perform day-to-day responsibilities and cause lost work time. Often the effects of the accident are delayed and subtle at first, masking the need to seek medical attention. However, it is imperative, no matter how small the accident may seem, that you be medically evaluated as quickly as possible. This will then allow you to be treated in a necessarily timely fashion.

Our clinic takes great pride in returning patients to pre-accident functioning in a safe and efficient fashion, using the best scientific evidence available. A customized treatment program is developed for you, aimed at decreasing pain, increasing functioning, and preventing a re-occurrence of symptoms.

What to do after a motor vehicle accident:

  1. Report your injury to your motor vehicle insurer. Your insurer will walk you through the details of the claim process.
  2. Meet with your primary health care practitioner. Be sure to inform them that your injury is a result of a motor vehicle accident.
  3. Be sure to obtain a referral for chiropractic and or massage therapy. Note, however, that a referral is not required to access either forms of therapy.
  4. Book an appointment with Dr. Carney for an initial consultation. Dr. Carney will give you a thorough evaluation and will outline a treatment plan for you. In addition, he will guide you through the process of filling out the necessary insurance-related paper work.

Our treatment approach:

Your treatment program will be a teamwork approach between our office and you. In other words, it will involve both “Active Care” and “Passive Care”.

“Passive Care” involves treatment performed by the health professional aimed at pain reduction, increases in mobility, and increases in overall functioning. Types of care may include soft tissue therapy, deep myofascial release (Active Release Techniques), trigger point therapy, gentle spinal mobilization/manipulation, therapist-assisted stretching, therapeutic modalities (such as ultrasound, TENS/Interferential current), and or medical acupuncture.

“Active Care” involves treatment that you perform, with our guidance. This includes stretching and exercise rehabilitation, as well as following advice on performing daily activities safely and with minimal discomfort.

Evidence clearly shows that the combination of passive and active care is the absolute most time efficient and effective means of ensuring a safe and complete return to pre-accident level of functioning.
