If you are injured in a car accident, it is important that you seek treatment as soon as possible, even if you are “feeling fine”. When any injury occurs to the spine and surrounding soft-tissues, healing begins immediately whether you feel pain or not. The body’s response to injury is inflammation, muscle contraction, stiffness and pain. The longer you wait to begin treatment the more scar-tissue formation will occur to the muscles and ligaments, which then requires more treatment.
Think about a pro-athlete that tears their knee ligaments. Immediately after surgery they begin treatment of the ligament to reduce scar-tissue formation and increase mobility to the injured tissue. It is the same when you are injured in a car accident and we at Aragon Care Centers have been treating injuries from car accidents for over three decades.
When you come in, Dr. Aragon will perform a thorough exam, with x-rays, to determine what treatment(s) you will need to get you back to where you were before the accident.
While you are working with our team to heal your body, our Office Manager can help you navigate the insurance companies. If you have any questions about anything, we are here to help. We are pros at guiding clients through the craziness of the aftermath of auto accidents and we are happy to help you too.
