Auto Accidents Q & A

What are auto accident injuries?

If you’ve been in an automobile accident, you might experience the following injuries:

  • Concussion, headache, or other head injury
  • Neck, shoulder, and back injuries
  • Chronic pain
  • Leg and foot injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Bone fractures
  • Soft tissue damage


Some auto accident injuries, such as whiplash and concussions, might not be obvious right away. That’s why getting assessed by a specialist at Rocky Mountain Accident Care is so important.

What should I do after a car accident?

If you’re in need of immediate medical attention due to severe injuries after an auto accident, call 911. For injuries that aren’t life-threatening, call the police to file an accident report, call your insurance company, and make an appointment with Rocky Mountain Accident Care as soon as possible. The staff specializes in the following services:

  • Medical evaluations
  • Imaging and other diagnostic services
  • Injury treatment
  • Rehabilitation
  • Referrals, if necessary
  • Assistance with insurance reimbursement
  • Auto rentals, if needed


Rather than seeing a general physician or emergency room staff member for injuries that aren’t life-threatening, choose the medical experts at Rocky Mountain Accident Care who are specially trained in auto accident and other personal injuries.

What should I expect during my appointment?

When you arrive at Rocky Mountain Accident Care, a member of the medical team goes over your medical and accident history, and completes a physical examination. Your provider may recommend ClearEdge® testing to evaluate brain health, as well as:

Imaging tests

Depending on the type of injury you’ve suffered, your provider may recommend an imaging test, such as an MRI scan, a CT scan, or X-rays.

Conservative treatments

Your doctor recommends conservative therapies first, which might involve massage, chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, ComforTrac for neck and back traction, heat or ice treatment, ultrasound therapy, interferential stimulation, or physical therapy.

Medications

After an evaluation, your doctor may recommend oral or topical medications or injections to relieve pain, relax your muscles, improve sleep, or decrease inflammation.

Referrals

The experienced medical team at Rocky Mountain Accident Care might refer you to specialists as needed for broken bones, a brain injury, or surgery if it’s necessary to maximize your quality of life. Your provider refers you to the most qualified specialists in the Aurora area, and coordinates with other providers to ensure you receive the high-quality care you deserve.
