Auto accident injury chiropractor dispels the myths
There are many myths about being injured in an auto accident and getting quality professional treatment for those injuries.  The first myth is that whiplash injuries are a fake or a fraud, this can not be further from the truth.  Injuries from auto accident are so prevalent that Utah law requires all insured drivers have at least $3000.00 toward initial medical expences for each individual involved, no mattter who is liable.  This inables you to get immediate treatment without the concern of who is the liable party.  Being professionally evaluated and treated by an auto accident injury chiropractor is covered completely by this.  The second myth is that if there is little to no damage done to your vehicle, you can not be injured.  Again completely untrue, newer cars are made to absorb the force of an impact, but through most of these features they really translate the force directly to the vehicle s occupants and some times magnify those forces many times over. If you ever watch a NASCAR race you will understand this.  When one of the racecars crashes it literally disintegrates around the driver, the kinetic energy of the crash is translated to the parts of the vehicle that are destroyed many times sparing the driver from serious injury.  Now when your new sedan hits the car in front of you at say 10 MPH, the bumpers are not made to take the kinetic energy and be destroyed, they are made to bounce back into shape, the kinetic energy from this impact is translated to the occupants of the car and not absorbed by the car. An auto accident injury chiropractor can evaluate you for whiplash.  Whiplash from motor vehicle accidents is thought to be a major cause of late-developing chronic neck pain, headaches and stiffness. Even low-speed accidents can generate enough kinetic energy to cause microscopic ligament and muscle tears and vertebral misalignments.  It is important to make sure that these injuries are properly treated to prevent problems from resurfacing in the future.  See an auto accident injury chiropractor today.

How do you pay an auto accident injury chiropractor?
All Utah insured drivers have medical (personal injury or PIP) coverage as part of their policy which will pay for diagnosis and treatment of injured that happened due to the operation of your motor vehicle.  This coverage pays auto accident injury chiropractors for services at 100% of necessary medical treatment up to your policy limit, regardless of who is at fault.  And the state law says you can use your personal injury insurance to get proper medical care without fear of having your rates go up.  If you have regular health insurance through your employer, it may require you to utilize your auto insurance PIP first, or prove that you do not carry it under your auto insurance policy, before it covers treatment for injuries sustained in a car accident.

The interesting thing is that the PIP portion of your auto insurance pays an auto accident injury chiropractor for all kinds of medically necessary injury treatment, even if there is not accident involved.  The coverage is for the treatment of any injury received while operating a vehicle, maintaining a vehicle or being injured by someone else operating a vehicle.  I have treated patient that were pedestrians and struck by another vehicle under the PIP portion of there auto insurance, and the strangest incident I have witnessed was a patient with a shoulder injury he got while changing a flat tire on the side of the road.

So if you have been injured in any way involving the operation and or maintaince of a vehicle you should be evaluated by an auto accident injury chiropractor for a possible injury, and you have already paid for this insurance coverage in your auto insurance premium.  Don't let minor pain and stiffness develop into lifelong problems.
