NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nashville Accident & Injury Center is offering specialized chiropractic care for the treatment of common auto accident injuries, including whiplash. Chiropractor Dr. Casey Bearden has years of experience treating auto injury patients and has been voted #1 chiropractor in Nashville for the last six years. The Center works closely with patients to adequately document the extent of their injuries for insurance reimbursement purposes. The chiropractor creates customized plans to assist with pain management following auto accident injuries, reducing the need for prescription pain medications.

Nashville chiropractor Dr. Casey Bearden is offering auto accident patients specialized options for whiplash pain management and injury rehabilitation care.

Whiplash is a common Nashville auto injury that can occur at speeds as slow as 5 mph. Symptoms range from minor stiffness to a host of chronic health problems including neck pain, migraines, difficulty concentrating and sleep disturbances.

"Many auto accident victims don't realize that a seemingly minor fender bender can actually result in a serious injury," said Dr. Bearden. "Whiplash injuries are very common after auto accidents. Unfortunately, many victims delay treatment because they do not realize they have been injured until weeks after the accident. At this point, they may have settled with their insurance companies, which can complicate the injury treatment and reimbursement process. This is why I recommend all accident victims receive at the very least a preliminary spinal exam, even if they initially feel fine."

During an auto injury diagnostic exam, licensed chiropractor Dr. Bearden takes X-rays of the head and neck. He also conducts a hands-on examination and takes a personal health history. This assessment helps him determine the extent of any whiplash injuries and appropriate treatment options.

A chiropractor is a licensed professional who received specialized training for treating musculoskeletal injuries. Dr. Bearden also has experience dealing with insurance companies and personal injury attorneys.

"Some insurance companies may push accident victims to settle early, before the extent of their injuries is fully known," said Dr. Bearden. "As an auto accident chiropractor, I understand just how important it is to get a full assessment first. I document all injuries identified during the examination so that any needed care is paid in full by the auto insurance company, rather than out-of-pocket by the patient. I use my knowledge and experience to help patients get the medical attention they deserve and are legally entitled to."

Nashville chiropractor Dr. Bearden works with patients to ensure they recover as quickly and safely as possible after an accident injury, like whiplash. Restoring proper alignment alleviates nerve and muscle compression, which is associated with pain and mobility restrictions after an accident.
