Auto Accident Injury Q & A

What is an auto accident injury?

An auto accident injury may affect any part of your body. 

Common injuries that people sustain during motor vehicle accidents include:

  • Whiplash
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Fractures
  • Scrapes and bruises
  • Joint injuries (shoulders, elbows, knees)
  • Sprains and strains

Injuries can occur whether you were involved in a serious car crash or a minor fender bender. 

When should I seek help for my auto accident injury?

You should seek help for your injury immediately after your car crash. Even if you don’t have any obvious symptoms, it’s not uncommon to develop pain and stiffness hours or even days after an accident.

When left untreated, an auto accident injury may turn into a chronic problem. Dr. Marinaro is an experienced chiropractor and provides comprehensive care for auto accident injuries.

When you come in to see Dr. Marinaro for your auto injury, you can expect a comprehensive evaluation. The goal of the consultation is to diagnose and effectively treat your injury to reduce your risk of developing a chronic pain condition.

During your consultation, Dr. Marinaro asks detailed questions about your auto accident, including any symptoms you may be experiencing. He also reviews your medical history and conducts a physical exam, paying close attention to the structure and function of your spine and joints.

To confirm or rule out a diagnosis, Dr. Marinaro may request diagnostic imaging tests such as X-rays or an MRI.

Dr. Marinaro takes an integrative approach to health, and he designs a plan to treat your unique auto accident injuries based on your diagnosis, the severity of your symptoms, and your overall health and wellness.

When needed, the experienced chiropractor may also refer you to other specialists, such as an orthopedic surgeon, to ensure you get the comprehensive care you need to heal from your auto accident injury.
