Auto injuries are any type of injury that occurs as a result of a traffic accident. The force of a car accident typically inflicts more stress on your body than you’re used to experiencing. This sudden impact on your body often leads to injuries that you can see and feel right away.
Many injuries, however, don’t cause pain or discomfort until days or weeks later. This is particularly true for soft-tissue injuries, which can damage your muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
After an auto accident, it’s common to experience one or more of the following injuries or symptoms:
Whether you were hurt in an accident that was your fault, or you suffered a personal injury, the providers at Magnolia Medical Clinic can identify and treat the root cause of your pain.
Personal injury happens when somebody harms you or causes you pain due to negligent behavior. Filing an auto injury claim is a lengthy process, but you shouldn’t put off seeking treatment until your case is settled.
Magnolia Medical Clinic will happily accept a Letter of Protection (LOP) from your attorney. A LOP guarantees your comprehensive diagnosis and treatment with the stipulation that the clinic will receive payment. Anybody can ask for a LOP after an accident, regardless of who’s at fault.
Magnolia Medical Clinic uses a digital motion X-ray (DMX) to determine exactly what is causing your pain and discomfort. A DMX takes pictures of your body in motion to see how it responds to certain movements. This helps your provider see where your bones may experience abnormal movement or excessive motion.
DMX is ideal for those who are experiencing symptoms and have inconclusive X-rays or MRI scans. DMX images the body as it moves and helps diagnose patients with whiplash, neck pain, concussions, or other chronic pain conditions.
Magnolia Medical Clinic providers perform a comprehensive range of both chiropractic care and regenerative medicine services. They may recommend physical therapy, hands-on manipulation techniques, and steroid injections to relieve pain and improve mobility.
If you have a concussion, your provider recommends an individualized concussion protocol based on your test results.
The practice uses regenerative medicine to repair the damage. Regenerative medicine techniques involve injecting your damaged tissues, joints, and muscles with substances that contain growth factors, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, to accelerate healing.
