Auto Accident Recovery
Auto accidents can range from a minor fender bender, to a life changing collision. No matter the severity, it’s critical to seek medical help. For timely, high-quality accident care, Houstonians turn to Gibraltar.
Getting Medical Care After a Car Accident
In 2019, a car crash occurred in Texas every 56 seconds. Here in Houston, there were more than 64,000 auto accidents in 2018, with tens of thousands of reported injuries. But even though automobile accidents are all too common, many people are unsure how to respond when one does strike. If you’re involved in an auto accident in Houston, let Gibraltar be your first call.
One of the most common questions we hear is, “Should I seek medical care after my accident even if I don’t feel pain?” That answer is yes. In some cases, you won’t feel your injuries until a day or two after the accident. In other cases, your internal injuries could go completely unnoticed–and become more serious–unless a doctor conducts a medical exam.
If you’ve had an auto accident, Gibraltar is your rock. Our clinics across Houston are staffed with the best doctors the metro has to offer. We know auto accident care, and we put our experience to work for you. Your recovery is our top priority.
We’re Houston’s Top Auto Accident Recovery Network
Auto accidents can range from minor fender-benders to serious, and even fatal, situations. That’s why Gibraltar clinics feature multidisciplinary specialists who are ready to respond to your unique health needs. We’re experts at helping our patients identify the full extent of their injuries, develop personalized treatment plans, manage their pain and beyond.
Spine and extremity injuries
Gibraltar’s chiropractors specialize in helping patients treat spine and extremity injuries. In many auto accidents, our patients experience whiplash, which can cause major injury to the neck. Other common conditions can include herniated disks and damage to the spine–both of which require immediate care from a Board Certified Chiropractor.
A headache might seem benign. However, if you’ve been in a car accident, this could be a symptom of a more serious head injury. In many cases, head injuries take time to fully develop. If you’re experiencing a headache, blurred vision or nausea after your accident, call us now to get medical care.
Left untreated, brain injuries can cause long-term health issues. By seeking immediate medical care, you can secure a treatment plan that helps you recover without complications.
Soft tissue injuries
When you’re in an auto crash, it can cause your body to move suddenly–and in a way that it wouldn’t move naturally on its own. Because soft tissues surround your bones, they are often the first parts injured in an accident. One of the most common soft tissue injuries in auto accidents is whiplash. However, you could also experience strains, sprains, bruising and other injuries that impact your muscles, ligaments and tendons. From muscle taping to bracing, trust Gibraltar to help you recover from soft tissue injuries.
When you’re in a car accident, it can put a tremendous amount of force on your bones. When that force is more than your bones can withstand, a break occurs. Broken bones require immediate care and, depending on their severity and location, can require extended rehabilitation.
Knee injuries are one of the most common injuries among our patients. These injuries can be extremely painful, and typically require rehabilitation because of your knee’s role in movement and mobility. Whether you need knee surgery, braces and/or physical therapy, Gibraltar is here to help you get back to good health.
Our specialists work closely with patients to develop tailored pain management plans. We understand that no two people, injuries and pain tolerances are the same. Crafted in collaboration with your full care team, our integrated pain management plans reflect your unique needs.
