Maybe you were recently rear-ended in a minor car accident. Your car was only slightly damaged. But what about your body?
The next day, perhaps you woke up with a sore neck or even lower back pain. Trip after trip to the doctor has sucked away your precious time and money.
“It’s just a soft tissue injury. Give it time.” Have you heard this?
Unfortunately, your insurance adjuster often considers a soft tissue injury as minor. So might your doctor!
Weeks can turn into months of pain. Your medical coverage may run out. You can barely work or function around the house. Even worse, your injury is “invisible” to most.
“But you look SO good!” You may have heard these words from family, friends, and neighbors if you are suffering from chronic “invisible” pain. It’s just human nature to not believe what we cannot see.
Recently, a family member was told by a pain management doctor that his back pain was his friend. “Suffering is just part of the journey.”
Yeah, well! Let’s trade shoes for a week, shall we? Pain is a friend no one wants to keep!
Instead, listen to what one local chiropractor says about soft tissue injury.
“…soft tissue injury can result in chronic pain and limited mobility which can result in permanent disability.” (from the newsletter of Dr. Martin Schmaltz of Hazelwood, MO, www.drmartinschmaltz.com)
Fortunately, you have these experts in soft tissue injury on your side. Your local chiropractor may be just the medical expert to see after even a minor car accident. They can help you in two ways!
1.) Documentation for your personal injury lawyer to help fight for insurance coverage
Chiropractors will help document soft tissue damage that may lead to chronic pain and disability. They take these injuries very seriously.
Records from your local chiropractor can be used to aid your personal injury lawyer to get the best possible coverage from your insurance company.
Partner with your local personal injury lawyer! Ask about which chiropractor your car accident attorney recommends.
2.) Treatment for your soft tissue injury
Together your personal injury attorney and your chiropractor can possibly prevent a life of chronic pain and disability! Let’s get rid of that unwanted “friend”.
