7 Denver Accident Mistakes You Should Never Make!

Denver accidents can be a nightmare.  Even if you drive carefully there are always distracted drivers that can ruin you.  Read this article carefully so you can avoid compounding the problem by making these 7 grave errors.

Bad Mistake #1, Waiting

Waiting to get care is dangerous.  The longer you wait, the harder it may be to get your health back.  If you wait, you may experience the following;

o  Headache?

o  Neck Pain or Stiffness?

o  Tingling or Numbness?

o  Grinding Sounds in Neck?

o  Nausea?

o  Dizziness?

o  Soreness or Tenderness?

o  Low Back Pain?

o  Sciatica (Leg Pain)?

o  Difficulty Concentrating?

o  Jaw Trouble?

o  Difficulty Swallowing?

o  Shoulder or Arm Pain?

o  Wrist Pain or Numbness?

o  Insomnia?

o  Ringing in the Ears?

o  Swelling or Bruising?

o  Ribcage/Chest Soreness?

o  Changes in Vision?

o  Sore Between Shoulders?

o  Tightness or Spasm?

o  Light Headedness?


Bad Mistake #2, Wrong Doctor

Don’t go to the wrong clinic!  Your family doctor or some “doc in a box” may not be a good choice after an accident.  Your ordinary doctor may assume the pain you’re experiencing will get better with rest and medication.  Advil or Ibuprofen slow down healing in cases of whiplash and do nothing to realign or rehabilitate the spine and nervous system.  Delaying necessary care this way can create a crisis situation later on.  Don’t go to just any clinic.

At our accident clinic in East Denver we’ve helped thousands and thousands of patients for over 30 years. We specialize in accidents and know how to get people well quickly.  If you’re not getting results with your ordinary doctor, don’t wait.  Call (303) 394-CARE (2273).

Bad Mistake #3, Waiting To Be Told What To Do

Accident related injuries are real and debilitating.  In over half the cases of serious crashes, victims never fully recover.  Don’t become a sad statistic.  No one can see your injuries and no one will feel the pain but you.  There is nothing noble or beneficial about suffering in silence.  Don’t wait for someone to come along and explain what to do next.  Pick up the phone and set an appointment to find out what’s wrong and do something about it.  Don’t be a victim.

Bad Mistake #4, Using Heat

Heating pads are worthless after accidents and can pool fluids deep in the joints to create chronic pain patterns.

Use ice initially from 5-20 minutes at least 3 times a day.  Use a towel between yourself and the ice to protect your skin.

Bad Mistake #5, Cervical Collars

Wearing a neck collar is like injecting glue into the joints of the neck.  It’s not a good idea unless you’ve been diagnosed with a broken neck, or have some other doctor supported reason to wear one.

Using one can lead to wasting of the muscles that hold the neck in proper alignment and cause bone thinning.  Long term use of cervical collars leads to psychological dependency as well.

Bad Mistake #6, Overly Concerned About Cost

Insurance pays for care at our center.  It’s against the law for them to “jack up your rates” if you use insurance, unless you were at fault.

Even if you have no insurance, our staff is trained at finding hidden resources to pay for your care.

Bad Mistake #7, Hesitation

If you wait to get all the information and study your problem further, it may be too late.  Our care is safe, gentle, and very effective.  We make it easy to get well.  Don’t wait till your pain becomes permanent.  Call (303) 394-CARE (2273).
