Your body may be in a damaged state after a truck accident. Receiving medical attention is important for several reasons, and Dominguez Chiropractic can be your Marietta One-Stop Auto Injury Center after a collision. As an auto accident doctor, Dr. Barbara Dominguez knows what patients may go through after a truck accident. She will meet with you as a patient during your treatment and will ensure that the treatment you receive is appropriate based on your injuries.
We accommodate both English- and Spanish-speaking patients. You can come into the office today. You may also call the team at Dominguez Chiropractic at (404) 800-3000 to arrange treatment with a Marietta truck accident chiropractor.
Seeking Medical Attention Quickly Is Critical
Truck accidents can put your body through vicious twists and turns, but you might not immediately recognize that you are injured. You may also recognize only certain injuries, while others go undiagnosed and untreated.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), truck accidents causing injuries increased by 62% between 2009 and 2015. Large trucks can weigh several tons, far more than the typical vehicle, and certainly more than a bicycle, motorcycle, or pedestrian.
The point is that you should seek medical attention promptly after your accident, as there is a chance you suffered at least one injury. Some of the reasons not to wait to be seen by a chiropractor include the following:
- To receive a certain diagnosis of your injuries
- To receive pain-relieving treatment for those injuries
- To receive care that might prevent you from suffering additional injuries
- To prevent your existing injuries from getting worse
Receiving medical treatment soon after your truck accident is also important for defending your rights. The team at Dominguez Chiropractic understands that you may be the victim of a truck driver’s dangerous actions. Having a record of your injuries could be important for any lawsuit or insurance claim that you pursue.
Your Injuries Could Worsen Without Treatment
Several injuries that may come from a truck accident could get worse if they are not treated. A chiropractor will diagnose any injuries that you have suffered, which could include:
- Herniated disc(s)
- Injuries caused by whiplash
- Fractures of the spine
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Dislocated, fractured, or otherwise injured vertebrae
Our team may be able to treat one or more of the injuries that you have suffered because of a truck accident. If we cannot, we may refer you to another medical professional who can provide treatment for one or more injuries. In either case, understanding which injuries you have suffered is necessary to begin your healing.
Mayo Clinic lists many of the symptoms that can come from spinal cord injuries, including loss of movement or loss of sensation. These symptoms can directly interfere with your life, cause great pain, and may get worse with time. Mayo Clinic also notes that, with treatment, those with spinal cord injuries may be able to lead normal lives.
You can see our MD on staff on the very same day of your appointment, as we know that time is important both for your health and other processes. Call Dominguez Chiropractic today at (404) 800-3000 for more information about how a Marietta truck accident chiropractor may treat you after your accident.
What a Chiropractor May Do for You
The treatment approach that Dr. Barbara Dominguez and her team prescribe for you or your loved one will depend on your injuries. You may also have other unique health considerations that could impact your treatment plan.
A chiropractor may take the following approach to your care:
- Speaking with you about your injuries and the accident that caused them
- Conducting any imaging tests that could reveal injuries
- Conducting further physical examinations that could reveal the severity of your injury and pain
- Speak with you about the treatment options that are available to you, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of any such treatments
One type of treatment that Dr. Barbara Dominguez may recommend is a chiropractic adjustment.
About a Chiropractic Adjustment
Cleveland Clinic explains that a chiropractic adjustment is when a chiropractor manipulates your body’s joints and possibly your spine in order to help relieve your symptoms.
Some of the symptoms that a chiropractic adjustment could treat are:
- Pain in your lower back
- Headaches, which could be caused by injuries from your truck accident
- Pain in your neck
- Joint pain
- Muscle pain
A chiropractic alignment may be one part of your overall treatment plan. Dr. Barbara Dominguez and her team will consider your overall picture of health and may employ other treatments with the goal of helping you feel better.
Some of the treatments that you may also receive include:
- Joint support
- Therapy targeting soft tissue injuries
- Exercises that you can do on your own
The team at Dominguez Chiropractic will certainly address the injuries that you have suffered because of a truck accident in Marietta or elsewhere. They will also advise you on how you could improve your overall health, and they could even discover preexisting injuries that you were not aware of.
