I’ve Had a Car Crash – What Do I Do?
Auto accident injuries can be scary. You’re hurt, and don’t know how bad the car is damaged. Maybe it’s totaled but you don’t know yet, and now you’ve got the insurance companies calling you to quickly settle your case. At SOHMA we help you navigate the process after getting into an auto accident, but most importantly we help you heal efficiently from the injuries you sustained from the accident.
Do I Need An Attorney?
We work with your personal injury attorney to help you get maximum value and healing out of your accident. If you do not have a personal injury attorney, we have strong relationships with several attorneys we can recommend. SOHMA works on liens which means you can get the medical care you need and deserve, without paying anything upfront. We don’t get paid until your case either settles or closes.
Can SOHMA Help With My Injuries?
Our goal for our patients who are injured in an auto accident, is for them to feel even better than they did before the accident. This is the case 90% of the time. Of course there are more complicated cases with severe injuries where 100% recovery may not be possible. With severe cases we coordinate care with other specialists needed to get you the best recovery possible.
What to Expect After an Auto Accident at SOHMA?
We will start with a thorough medical history, exam, and take digital x-rays on site. If needed, we will request an MRI. Treatment often starts right away because the sooner we can get your inflammation down, the sooner your pain will subside, your range of motion will be restored, and you can have peace of mind.
In more severe cases we refer out for pain management, or an orthopedic surgeon consultation.
At SOHMA, we combine the best of Eastern and Western medicine without the use of drugs or surgery. Being equipped with both ancient wisdom and modern technology, we’re able to handle most cases in-house. Our services include chiropractic medicine, acupuncture, massage, cupping, physiotherapy, digital x-rays, herbal pharmacy, and much more.
Time is of the essence when it comes to post-accident injury treatment, with some symptoms taking days or even weeks to become evident. Even a seemingly minor personal injury can have a long-lasting impact on your life. Whether you’ve slipped and fallen at work or were involved in an auto accident, SOHMA Integrative Medicine in Long Beach and Lakewood, CA will perform a targeted combination of treatments to help reduce your pain and speed your recovery. Our doctors specialize in post-accident recovery and offer a variety of techniques in treating personal injuries, such as
- Chiropractic care
- Physical Therapy
- PRP injections
- Non-surgical spinal decompressions and more.
Types of Personal Injury We Treat
Many of our personal injury patients suffer from soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash, which is the severe stretching of head and neck muscles and ligaments. Auto accidents and slip and falls can also cause low and mid back injuries such as muscle sprains or damages to the spine which can cause severe long-term effects such as limited motion of the neck, low back, and more.
Benefits of Treatment from SOHMA Integrative Medicine in Long Beach and Lakewood
Our mission is to get you out of pain, into balance, and back into play, without the use of prescription medication. When you visit our personal injury chiropractor in Long Beach and Lakewood, we’ll develop a personalized, comprehensive treatment plan to target the source of your pain. This allows us to provide relief from your symptoms while simultaneously correcting the underlying issue causing them in the first place.

We also utilize non-invasive techniques that work to restore proper function and range of motion quickly. Our approach is designed to get you on the path to recovery as quickly as possible, and so, unlike surgical options, it requires little to no recovery downtime.
