What To Do If You Are Involved in a Car Accident
Knowing who to call and what to do in the few minutes after an accident protects you and your loved ones:
- Move all involved vehicles off busy roads. Use extra care when moving injured passengers; call an Ambulance, if necessary.
- Exchange names, addresses, phone numbers and insurance information with all involved parties, including any witnesses.
- Make notes of how the car accident happened while it is fresh in your mind.
- Call the Denver police.
- Contact your car insurance company.
- Call our experienced Denver Chiropractor for an immediate Consultation and Examination.
Severe injuries can, and often do, result from the relatively low-impact force. The fact is that many people do not
notice symptoms of neck, back, arm or leg injuries even severe injuries–for days or even weeks after an Auto accident.
The longer you wait to get examined, the longer it can take to restore your health. It is important to have a physical exam immediately following an accident, even if the accident seemed minor.
Seemingly minor spinal injuries often go undetected by routine emergency medical examinations. If left untreated, these injuries can become permanent, causing degeneration of the spine and leading to a life of constant pain.
If you have reason to believe you or someone you know may have whiplash as the result of an auto accident, immediately stabilize and protect the head so that it cannot be exposed to further injury.
For temporary relief, apply an ice pack to the area to help reduce inflammation and decrease the pain. Apply the ice pack for 15 to 20 minutes at a time, allowing at least 30 minutes between applications.
Denver South Chiropractic & Rehab can make the referral to a Denver Auto Body repair shop, MRI, orthopedic doctor, Pain management clinics, Neurologist and to an auto accident Attorney in Denver if needed.

“I recently got into an accident and suffered neck and back pain. The pain was so bad that I couldn’t even stand for minutes at a time let alone doing physical work.

My back and neck pain has slowly disappeared and my head feels a hundred pounds lighter! I would definitely recommend Denver Chiropractic and Dr. Hitender to anyone who is in pain!” – John
