HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT BEFORE I SEEK CHIROPRACTIC CARE? 

Immediately any accident is the best option! Others say within 72 hours but we say the sooner the better. If you hold off on going for medical care then there’s a gap in the time you have had the accident to the time you go for care. This will give the other party room to say your injuries are not as bad as you say. More importantly, you should get your injuries treated ASAP not only for the legal reasons but for your health. The sooner you begin treatment the sooner you will feel better again.

Our team has the experience handling personal injuries and know what is best when it comes to caring for these types of injuries. Many victims of personal injury accidents do not even have pain symptoms until days or weeks after the incident. People tend to have trouble with regular tasks because of the pain, stiffness or soreness of their body after an accident.  This pain increases when it comes to older victims, who already have regular pain, who are involved in a personal injury accident. Often of these accidents end up hurting a person’s neck or spine the most. Which is why chiropractors are the number one place people go for treatment when it comes to personal injury care.

 Personal Injury Chiropractors mainly deal with whiplash, soft tissue injuries, musculoskeletal injuries, and lumbar strain and sprains. By seeking treatment your joints will improve and your odds of having long-term soft-tissue damages will lower.

WHAT PAPERWORK DO CHIROPRACTORS GIVE ME?

Our personal injury chiropractors know the best ways to document everything the way the insurance companies like it. We document each specific symptom and the treatment that was given for each one. We also make sure it is billed so they will believe your treatment was needed and included it in your settlement.  Each treatment must be plainly laid out in the doctors medical and billing records. Our team can work with insurance companies in efforts of giving our patients a hassle-free recovery process.

WHAT DOES THE DIAGNOSIS PROCESS DEMAND?

Typically, chiropractors will look at the entire spine to for any misalignments. Check for any joint restrictions, intervertebral disc injuries, ligament injuries, muscle spasms, tightness or tenderness. A chiropractor will also look at your walk and posture. This is for a better understanding your body’s movements and it will help them diagnose your injuries.

An X-ray, MRI, or CT scan may be done to confirm your diagnosis and look for any degenerated changes you may have had before the accident. The diagnostic images and neurological and physical evaluation will help the chiropractor determine the best treatment plan for you.
