Do I need to see a doctor after an accident?

The short answer is: yes, you should always see a doctor after an accident or injury.

This is especially true if you are the victim. You will need a professional medical diagnosis and documentation of your injuries and treatment to receive a pay out from insurance companies or if you’re pursuing a lawsuit.

In addition, injuries from accidents can be very serious, even if the pain is mild. Sudden injury releases adrenaline and other hormones into your body that can mask the pain. You may not recognize an injury for days or weeks. By then, recovery will often take longer and the insurance company might deny your claim.

Whether you were part of an auto accident, work accident, sport injury, or other personal injury, BackFit Health + Spine reserves same-day appointment times to accommodate immediate service. It’s very important you see a doctor as soon as possible, generally within 72 hours of an injury.

What injuries can BackFit treat?

Types of injuries from accidents can vary greatly. We regularly work with patients that have the following injuries or a resulting condition from an injury:

BackFit can also help you prevent injury and re-injury.

What can I expect in my first visit?

After an injury, at BackFit you can expect no initial costs. We work regularly with insurance companies, attorneys, and 3rd party liens as needed. When you come in, we will provide a hands-on exam, on-site x-rays, and a complete treatment plan.

Your treatment will not only mitigate any pain but work to stabilize the injured area to get you back to your life as soon as possible.

Absolutely love this place! My husband and I have been going here for a while, and every time they remember us. We never have to re-explain anything. From the front desk to the medical team and chiropractors, they genuinely care. I’ve been having issues with my back and knee for as long as I can remember, and they helped make me feel better then I ever have. It's hard to find businesses that are run like BackFit. They have what is best for you at heart. Thanks for making my husband and I feel better then we’ve felt in years!

I would highly recommend BackFit. The staff and doctors are wonderful and my treatment has been very successful. My migraine headaches and sciatic nerve pain are completely gone. I have significantly less lower back pain and much more range of motion despite the fact that the disc in my back was very damaged. I can now go about my daily living without health issues getting in the way.

Great adjustments. Friendly staff too. Good therapists for exercising and stretching before I get adjusted. Been going for 4 years, totally love coming to get adjusted. Not scary at all. I had severe lower back pain and spasms. When I go for a routine adjustment it keeps from back pain occurring and my back spasming.

Going to BackFit was one of the best decisions I've made. I couldn't get out of bed because of severe back pain. I called BackFit and they were able to see me that day. They took x-rays in office. Loved that I didn't have to go anywhere else. Went back a couple days later to go over x-ray results with the chiropractor and started working on a solution, also with their in-house physician assistant and physical therapist. Not only have they been able to relieve the pain in my back but they have worked on other kinks in my body. Oh, and they also helped me lose weight. What more can I say, the people are amazing and the results are amazing! If anything in your body hurts, go to BackFit!

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.

I was a little weary at first, but man even in the first two weeks they are really making a difference in my health! I felt the difference just after my first visit! I am committed to coming back and staying consistently. I actually recommend!
