Auto Injury Care

AT ASPIRE CHIROPRACTIC & MASSAGE, WE TREAT AUTO INJURIES

We understand when you’re experiencing pain and discomfort in your body, it can leave you feeling hopeless and frustrated. Neck pain, back pain, and headaches as a result of an auto accident are not normal and should not be ignored. These symptoms can persist and worsen with time if not evaluated and treated correctly. Too often, people simply assume that these symptoms will go away on their own. This can be a big mistake!

If you have recently been in an auto accident, you need a doctor who is trained in the biomechanics of the spine, someone who treats these injuries everyday. At Aspire Chiropractic & Massage, our primary goal is to get you out of pain and give you the care that you need. Our team has helped thousands of people transform their health and offer rehabilitation after such a traumatic experience. From the moment you arrive, we’ll help you feel heard, empowered, and encouraged so you may experience health and get back to doing what you love.

INJURY TO YOUR NECK OR BACK CAN LEAD TO A LIFETIME OF CHRONIC PAIN

Patients who were recently in a car accident often report a wide variety of symptoms. Some of these symptoms occur immediately, while some may not show up for several days or even weeks after the accident. The most common reported symptoms after an accident are neck and back pain, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, and trouble concentrating.

While you may be in a hurry to get your car fixed, make sure you call our office to get your neck and back properly examined. There could be underlying injuries that left untreated, could lead to a lifetime of chronic pain. A car accident is a major event and the trauma that comes from them could be significant.

Dr. Betsill and Dr. Coughlin, along with the staff at Aspire Chiropractic & Massage, are experienced with treating patients who have been injured in auto accidents. At Aspire Chiropractic & Massage in Gresham, we offer a variety of ways to reduce back and neck pain, disc herniations, and other soft tissue and joint injuries caused by auto accidents. These include chiropractic adjustments manually, with drop table and activator, mechanical traction, electrical muscle stimulation therapy, therapeutic exercise, and massage.

A thorough examination will be performed by our Chiropractor and he will recommend a course of care based on how you present. Depending on your condition, sometimes imaging (X-ray's, MRI's, or CT's) will be recommended to rule in or out diagnoses and to provide more evidence of injury in the accident.

In many cases, a patient will initially seek care for auto injuries with their primary physician, at the emergency room or an urgent care center. Often times the patient is sent home with medications and instructions to rest and is given no clear instruction on any further treatment. Without appropriate treatment for underlying injuries patients can have symptoms that arise in the future. Chiropractic can be an effective way of treating dysfunction joints and muscle injuries caused by the forces of the accident.

The state of Oregon is a no-fault state when it comes to auto accidents. This means that everyone is required to have personal injury protection (PIP) on their auto insurance. This gives you the option of getting treatment where ever you decide is best for you. With your PIP, chiropractic and massage is covered at 100% of the charges. This leaves no cost to you for treatment.

Our office assistants will investigate your personal injury protection plan on your auto insurance and help you navigate your claims process.
