Snow is coming and accidents can happen.

With our first snowfall arriving (as we speak), we hope you stay safe on the roads.  In the unfortunate instance that you get into a car accident, here are some reminders for you:

You may feel shock or disorientation at first – this is not uncommon.

Check yourself and your passengers to make sure you are all safe.

You may feel dizzy, have a headaches, or simply have pain in your neck or back.

Sometimes injuries will present themselves right away, but sometimes they won’t.

It can even take days before you notice anything.

When you contact MPI and you feel you are injured (or may be), make sure you open an MPI injury claim as well (no harm in doing this).

If you do start feeling symptoms, contact our office to book an appointment for Chiropractic or Athletic Therapy treatment.

We will take care of any paperwork needed, submit any report, and bill MPI directly for treatment if needed.

Please note that no injury should be taken lightly as studies show even the mildest whiplash injuries can have long lasting effects.

If you have any questions, let us know.  Drive safely out there.

Three tips to help stay safe on the road

  1. Pay close attention to changing tire pressure as temperatures continue to drop (air pressure decreases in cold weather)
  2. Drive slowly. Avoid rushing by giving yourself extra travel time in poor conditions.
  3. Keep an emergency bag in your vehicle – add gloves, hats, flashlights, booster cables – anything that can help to keep you safe in an emergency.
