Car Accident Injury
Car accidents in Longview WA and Battle Ground WA can be life changing. Many people describe their lives in reference to before vs after the accident. If you’ve been in a car accident, you may be slightly sore and minimally injured or you may be overwhelmed and unable to function normally.
The traditional healthcare approach to car accident injuries is to rule out fractures and dislocations by taking X rays. You may have been prescribed a pain killer, muscle relaxer and/or an anti-inflammatory drug. Although these can take the edge off in terms of the acute pain, they DO NOT address the cause of the injury.
