Auto injuries from auto collisions can be devastating, and most involve many body systems – some without symptoms.
At our Sartell, MN clinic our team of specialists has handled more than 2,000 separate injury cases and is uniquely qualified to properly and thoroughly diagnose your injuries.
Williams Integracare is one of the most commonly recommended providers of services and care related to auto crash injuries. Our providers have advanced, post-doctoral training in factors unique to treating auto accident injuries.
COMMON AUTO INJURY SYMPTOMS
Neck pain – commonly caused by whiplash
Back pain – commonly caused by impact
Headaches – a potential warning sign of a concussion
Hip pain – noticeably when walking, running, standing up, or sitting down after an accident
Chest pain – noticeably when taking deep breaths in and out
Other aches and stiff joints – these should be checked out soon after an accident
WORK WITH OUR EXPERIENCED TEAMS
We can treat many of these injuries right here at our clinic. Our team of medical providers, chiropractors, and physical therapists is well-equipped to provide a complete care plan for auto accident injuries. Whether you need methods to relieve pain or more complex therapy to fix the underlying issue – our staff has the knowledge to handle it.
There are some instances where a specialist is needed that we do not have on-site. In those cases, we also have access to a referral network of neurologists, orthopedists, neurosurgeons, and other specialists for the most comprehensive care.
Our goal is to put you confidently back behind the wheel!
Due to the complex nature of auto related injuries, many patients visit our clinic to be evaluated by a chiropractor after a crash.
Chiropractors use a unique system of integrative medicine based on the diagnosis and manipulative treatment of misalignments of joints, especially those of the spinal column, which can cause other disorders by affecting nerves, muscles, and organs.

While a chiropractor can work to start mobilizing your spine/associated joints and start the overall healing process, the physical therapist plays a crucial role in helping improve your joint, trunk and core stabilization through strengthening to facilitate further healing.
Physical therapy addresses the dysfunction or injuries that limit a person’s abilities to move, perform functional activities, and address the best efficiency and body mechanics optimal for daily function.

For some accidents, patients see one of our family practice providers as well. They offer the care you expect from urgent care, as well as injections when necessary.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who's Auto Insurance Covers My Medical Care?
Minnesota is a “no-fault” state, this means you submit all of your claims to your own auto insurance, even if you were not at fault for the accident. As claims are submitted, your insurance company will “fight it out” with the other driver’s insurance company to determine fault and how expenses should be handled.
What Do I Do After An Auto Accident?
The first thing you should do after an auto accident is submit a claim to your auto insurance company. You will then receive a claim number and other billing information if you report that you plan to seek medical care.
Understandably, you may be in a lot of pain and want to be seen by your family practice provider or chiropractor. Once you have the claim number and auto insurance information (likely the same day you report the accident) you can schedule with our providers and we can bill accordingly.
What Do I Do If Auto Insurance Denies My Claim?
If your claim is denied for any reason, you should receive written correspondence stating why. If you feel your auto insurance company is treating you unfairly, it may be necessary to seek legal help. If this happens to you, speak to your care provider. They may know a lawyer or law firm that has helped some of their other patients successfully.
