Hi my name is Dr. Ryan Giel and I’m here today to talk to you about what you absolutely need to know if you or someone you know has been injured in an auto mobile accident. One of the most stressful things in life besides dealing with the death of a loved one or moving is dealing with the problems that arise after being in a motor vehicle accident. Most people don’t realize that there are hidden and undetected injuries that occur from automobile accidents weeks, months, or even years down the road. Most people involved in automobile accidents are unaware of these hidden injuries and they wind up settling with the insurance company prematurely. Often times a person will go to the hospital or their medical doctor, receive medication, and settle with the insurance company while the pain is being masked by the medication. This poses 2 problems to the victim. 1. They do not receive the care they need and 2. They do not receive fair compensation for their misfortune. An automobile accident is a physical type of injury therefore it only makes sense that it be treated with a physical type of treatment not a chemical. Because a lot of automobile accident victims receive the incorrect care from a hospital or medical doctor the underlying damage is hidden or covered up only to resurface in the form of arthritis, or muscular problems later in that persons life. If you or a loved one has been injured in an automobile accident please to not make this common mistake, seek out the help of an experienced chiropractor or medical doctor who specializes in physical medicine. If you are injured in an accident that was not your fault it is our policy to treat you and except payment from the insurance company only after you have been fully rehabilitated, costing you no money out of your own pocket. If you are unsure if the accident was your fault or not it is also our policy to take a look at your case and provide you with a free exam and advice.
