Auto Accident

As a result of a car accident, you may be experiencing pain that is chronic, or acute, and we are here to help you.
We can treat injuries using a variety of different treatment methods. Our team will treat soft tissue ailments, spine injuries, as well as pain from common vehicle injuries such as sprains and strains of muscles and ligaments, as well as bone bruises.
No matter how severe or minor the pain may be, it is important to see our team for treatment early, minimizing the risk of chronic pain.

Should you go to the doctor after a minor car accident?
It might seem like a minor car accident to you, but car accidents can cause an increased release of adrenaline. This adrenaline can keep you from feeling pain. Seeing a doctor just in case can help identify potential injuries that could get worse if left untreated.

 1990 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) study reported found that about 28 percent of occupants in motor vehicle accidents incur minor to moderate injury while 6 percent incur severe injuries.

Greater than 90 % of patients with back pain can be treated with a high degree of pain relief with conservative management.

Who Pays for Injuries Sustained in Motor Vehicle Accidents?

According to the Insurance Research Council,
• 63 percent of injuries are paid by the injured individuals own automobile insurance company
• 55 percent of injuries are paid by the auto insurance company of another vehicle
• 36 percent of injuries are paid by health insurance
• 20 percent of injuries are paid by government programs
• 19 percent of injuries are paid workers’ compensation insurance
• Almost 60 percent of those injured reported to have used 2 or more sources of payment.

Minimum Accident Speed to Cause Injury

Studies involving live humans have demonstrated that a motor vehicle accident of as little as 5 mph can induce cervical (neck) injury. However, other studies have shown that cars can often withstand crashes of 10 mph or more without sustaining damage.

What pain management options are there after a car accident?

If you’ve gotten into a car accident and are now experiencing chronic pain because of your injuries, it’s never too late to be evaluated. At LBPC we provide regenerative medicine (e.g PRP) and can establish collaborative care with Physical Therapist or Chiropractors.
