Auto Accident Care in Indianapolisdr lucas analyzing xray

If you’ve been in a car accident, you should be immediately checked to make sure that you don’t have any injuries. You might even feel fine, but there can be problems in your body that don’t show up for days, weeks or even months after a collision.

Damage to Your Joints, Ligaments and Tendons

When you’re in an accident, the ligaments that hold your bones in place stretch. If they don’t heal and receive the rehabilitation needed, your bones will in turn heal out of place and cause degeneration and other permanent problems.

As a chiropractor, Dr. Lucas will make sure that you are properly aligned so that your ligaments and tendons aren’t negatively affected by your accident. Then, we’ll work to strengthen the muscles around your joints, which will ensure that your joints are in the proper position.

Can I Wait for the Pain to Go Away?

You might be tempted to wait it out, trying to ignore your discomfort. There’s a good reason you shouldn’t: the problem won’t disappear on its own. Given enough time, you may get used to it, but that’s far from treating the source of your pain. If you don’t get the attention you need, you’ll remain uncomfortable, can develop arthritis and the area will be prone to injury. You might experience frequent headaches, a loss of the spinal curves, sleeping disturbances and a decreased overall quality of life.

By investing 2-3 months in your health, we can help you recover with chiropractic care and rehabilitation. X-rays are available on-site, and we’ll be happy to refer you for an MRI, spinal injection or any other services you might need.

Experienced in Helping Accident Victims

Dr. Lucas works with many area attorneys and is well-versed in appearing as an expert witness in court. He’s also completed peer reviews in car accident cases. We’ll be happy to work with your insurance to make the process as seamless as possible for you. Contact us today to schedule your appointment!
