PRLog - Oct. 15, 2012 - FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- Dr. Howard Austrager of  Metrowest Spine Clinic, in Framingham is encouraging auto injury victims to delay settling insurance claims until they have received a comprehensive chiropractic evaluation. According to Dr. Austrager, many auto injury victims do not experience pain until several weeks after an accident. Internal injuries to the musculoskeletal system may not be evident until weeks or months have passed. A prompt chiropractic evaluation can diagnose underlying injuries before the onset of chronic pain, said, Dr. Austrager. Early diagnosis can also help ensure that auto injury victims receive full compensation from car insurance companies for their injuries.

Dr. Howard Austrager, a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist, is raising awareness about the importance of prompt care and diagnostic testing following an auto injury.

"I frequently treat patients who walked away from their car accidents believing that they had only suffered a few bruises," said Dr. Austrager. "In reality, these patients sustained serious musculoskeletal damage. Delaying care could have caused them chronic pain issues."

Metrowest Spine Clinic works closely with insurance companies and attorneys to ensure that patients pay little to no out-of-pocket expenses. In order for this to happen, however, Dr. Austrager  says that early diagnosis is key.

"After an accident, it can be weeks or even months before pain symptoms develop," said Dr. Austrager. "This means that many patients settle prematurely with their insurance companies and fail to receive full compensation for their injuries. A prompt evaluation from a chiropractor will identify the extent of these injuries before a settlement is reached."

Without proper treatment, Dr. Austrager warns that personal injury victims can suffer from chronic back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines.

For example, accidents at speeds as slow as 5mph can cause whiplash injuries. A seemingly minor fender bender can cause chronic migraines, neck pain and headaches, said Dr. Austrager. Abrupt backwards and forwards movement can shift the spine out of alignment and strain the neck and shoulder muscles.

"Without proper treatment, auto injury victims are also at greater risk for future injuries and arthritis," said Dr. Austrager. "We are working to educate victims about the importance of prompt care. The earlier we can treat a personal injury, the more we can do to minimize pain."

According to Dr. Austrager, spinal adjustments can help restore proper alignment to the spine. This relieves pressure on the nerves, minimizes scaring and reduces the risk for chronic pain.

Dr. Austrager and his wellness team work closely with insurance companies to minimize paperwork and out-of-pocket expenses. The practice offers same day appointments for Framingham, Natick, Marlboro and Sudbury personal injury patients.

"We are committed to doing everything possible to make treatment easy and affordable," said Dr. Austrager. "We never charge out-of-pocket expenses to the no-fault driver."

In addition to car accident injury patients, Dr. Austrager also treats herniated or bulging discs, sciatica, headaches, migraines, and other personal injuries.
