Auto Injury Care
Bend Oregon Auto Injury Specialists
We are all aware that driving is one of the most dangerous activities that most do on a daily basis. Unfortunately, this means that the majority of drivers will, at some point in their lives, be involved in at least 1 auto accident. It is for this reason that every car on the road in the state of Oregon is required to have Personal Injury Protection coverage on their auto insurance policy which is designed to pay for medical expenses incurred as a result of an auto related accident (regardless of who is at fault).
It is our very diverse and integrative approach at Wellness Doctor that allows us to excel with the management and treatment of injuries suffered in an auto accident. We are literally a one-stop clinic offering several different treatment options. From the initial pain, swelling, and stiffness to the structural repair and functional balancing, our team will take you through the entire recovery process.
Once involved in an auto accident, immediate care is vital in returning victims to their previous state of health and comfort. Allowing injuries to go untreated can lead to a delayed recovery time as well as additional ailments and unnecessary suffering. By using Chiropractic care to treat auto related injuries, motion and function of the spine can be restored as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Often times victims will experience significant tissue, joint, muscle, and nerve damage following an auto accident; all of which can go undetected if not thoroughly examined by a trained professional who specializes in musculoskeletal injuries. Because multiple areas can be affected with even the most minor collisions (and some injuries may not even present themselves for weeks or even months) It is recommended that seeking treatment as soon as possible after a motor vehicle accident will ensure the fastest recover possible.
For those seeking treatment after any type of injury or ailment, don't expect a simple 5 minute treatment upon visiting the Wellness Doctor clinic. Dr. Kremer's "whole body" approach ensures a thorough examine which closely looks at all systems of the body. During a typical initial visit, Dr. Kremer will spend an hour with the patient allowing time to discuss history, answer patient questions, perform an exam, and provide treatment (unless further imaging is needed).
Follow-up visits include thorough all-encompassing treatment of therapeutic modalities, soft tissue work, adjustments, and prescribed therapeutic exercise programs; with Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, and Lifestyle Education suggested to those in need of these services.
*Our Chiropractor may also recommend Acupuncture and Massage Therapy which are also covered under your Personal Injury Protection auto insurance coverage when administered under the care of a qualified health professional.
Common Auto Injuries Treated:
Chiropractic care offers a balanced approach to the treatment and complete healing of auto injuries. The chiropractic adjustment helps return spinal segments and all other joints to normal.
Graston Technique® is also offered at Wellness Doctor and performed by Dr. Kremer. If you are dealing with a whiplash injury, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, carpal tunnel, ITB or IT band syndrome, chronic neck pain caused by postural stress, as well as other tendonopathies, this technique has been proven to help break up scar tissue and adhesions to better allow tissues to heal properly, improve blood flow and increase range of motion. This is a highly sought after therapy for athletes around the world and works incredibly well with injuries sustained from auto accidents.
In conjunction with other treatment modalities such as ultrasound, myofascial release, kinesiotaping, and stressing the tissues through loaded movement patterns while performing Graston, Dr. Kremer sees a very fast and effective recovery for his patients.
Our Complete Nautral Healthcare clinic proudly provides the best acupuncture, and therapeutic massage in Bend and Central Oregon as well. We pride ourselves in a Whole Body approach when it comes to addressing musculoskeletal injuries suffered from minor fender benders to more serious collisions.
