You never wanted to be in a courtroom arguing for money. You are the victim of a car accident, and, though you don’t have broken bones, you have been injured. Now you’re fighting to have a personal injury claim paid.

But your lawyer is confident about your case because you’ve been working with a chiropractor from the beginning, ever since the accident. Why would that help you in a personal injury claim? Keep reading to find out this and much more.

Why Should You Visit a Chiropractor After a Car Accident?

Did you know that you can sustain injuries from a car accident going just 10 miles per hour? Whiplash, one of the most common types of injuries, occurs when your head is jolted in one direction and then suddenly overcompensates in the opposite direction. This motion can cause herniated disks, muscle spasms, spinal compression, and more—all of which can be painful and interfere with daily functioning.

Unfortunately, medical doctors often overlook injuries that don’t directly affect bones or organs. In other words, they don’t really offer much help with cartilage, ligaments, and other soft tissue injuries. But chiropractors do! With this resource, you can overcome the pain of these injuries and restore mobility and function.

How Can Your Chiropractor Help with Personal Injury Claims?

In legal matters, such as when trying to get compensated for a personal injury claim, it may not seem like a chiropractor could be useful, but they can. Instead of relying only on your word, your lawyer can use your chiropractor’s documentation about your injuries, treatment, and progress to substantiate your claim. If the matter goes to trial, your chiropractor could also testify and serve as an expert witness in the case, getting you the financial help you’ll need in recovery.

How Soon After a Car Accident Should I Start Visiting a Chiropractor?

In some cases, the discomfort of an injury can be felt immediately, but other times, pain following a car accident doesn’t kick in until days later even though the injury is there the whole time. That’s why you should start treatment as soon as you can after you experience a car accident, even if you don’t feel pain yet. You can get a decent head start on resolving the issue and perhaps reduce your pain and time recuperating.

If you need to file a personal injury claim following an accident and pursue it legally, you can use your chiropractic treatment as evidence of your pain and suffering, helping you receive funds you’re entitled to for your recovery.
