How Long Does Treat from a Car Accident Last?

Injuries obtained from an auto accident can be very traumatizing and scary. Most people who suffer from car accidents have a million questions racing through their minds: However, one always seems to be at the forefront. That question is, "How long will it take me to recover from my auto accident injuries?"

The answer to that question is everything but one-dimensional as you have to take into account variables that differ on a case by case basis. While car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye literally, the injuries and pain you sustain from being involved in one can last much longer.

To get a clear answer about your approximate recovery time when involved in an auto accident, you must first seek the right chiropractic evaluation and care as soon as possible. It would be best if you did so with urgency, as in some states, you are only allowed 14 days before you will lose insurance benefits for the accident.

There are several steps to recovery after experiencing an auto accident; the first phase of the recovery process is relief care.

Estimating Your Recovery Time

Relief care focuses on assisting you with alleviating any immediate pain or other symptoms you might experience as a car accident. This phase typically takes an entire month to complete; however, you may see your chiropractor 3-4 times a week during this period so they can monitor your recovery progress.

After the relief care phase is complete, you will move onto what is known as the corrective care phase. Corrective care focuses on re-stabilizing your spine's natural movement pattern by addressing any soft tissue or scar tissue that is affected. Corrective care rehabilitates all of your spinal systems so that you can regain the structure of your natural anatomy.

Once the corrective care phase is finished, you will progress to the strengthening care phase. In this phase, your chiropractic treatment will consist of securing all of the corrections made during the relief care and corrective care phases. Each one of these phases can take anywhere from 1-2 months apiece, which means most people recover from an auto accident within a 3-4 month period.

Going Through The Recovery Process

While everyone's auto accident case is different, there is a general set of rules and guidelines that will be applied to your treatment to assess the appropriate recovery steps. One of the most notable guidelines widely used by chiropractors is the Croth guideline, which states that 11 weeks is the standard period one should expect to be out of commission before fully recovering from your auto accident injuries.

During this period, you can easily make 21+ visits to your chiropractor, and that's just for relatively low-impact auto accidents. The more severe of a car accident that you have been involved in, the longer the recovery time you can expect to have.

In extreme auto accidents, your recovery process can easily take 56 weeks and up to chiropractor visits before you are able to regain full spinal rehabilitation.
