Car Accident Care for Greater Austin and San Antonio
Fortunately, most accidents result in small injuries; however, others result in life-changing injuries or worse. Our team of primary and chiropractic care providers along with our specialists including medical doctors, neurologists, orthopedists and pain management doctors, team up to focus on your care and achieve the best possible health outcome from your car accident.
Unless the injury is very severe, evidence-based medicine suggests the treatment of a primary care doctor and a chiropractor are a great start for your injury.
It’s important to start care shortly after your car accident in order to fully diagnose the injury. Also, most injuries respond to treatment better if treatment is started sooner than later. However, if your injury does not respond positively or quickly enough, our team of doctors will get our specialists involved. We have neurologists, pain management, orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons on-staff and ready to treat more severe or stubborn conditions.
