Chiropractic is a profession that focuses on treating people of any age who have a disorder of the musculoskeletal and/or nervous system. Using a variety of non-surgical, hands-on approaches, chiropractors perform adjustments to the spine or other parts of the body. The goal is to correct alignment problems, alleviate pain (usually back pain, neck pain, and headaches), and support the healing process. Your chiropractor will develop a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.
If you have been involved in an auto accident, you have probably already sought medical care from your family doctor or emergency room personnel. However, you can still benefit from a trip to one of our 6 practices. We can provide non-invasive, drug-free neck and back pain treatment that reduces your dependence on pain medications and could even eliminate the need for surgery.
Yes, they are. Anyone injured in a car accident, regardless of age, is eligible for care. No referral is required to be seen by our chiropractors, but we do accept attorney referrals, MD referrals, and patient referrals for all car accident victims. Personal injury protection or 3rd party claims are also welcome.
It does not take a serious auto accident to cause injury to the back or neck. Collisions at speeds as low as five miles per hour can cause whiplash injuries. An injury to the soft tissues of the spine or an injury that causes minor spinal misalignment may not cause symptoms for several months. If you are involved in even a minor auto accident, prompt evaluation by one of our chiropractors can help you avoid painful and debilitating symptoms.
We are highly engaged in the work comp arena and strive to coordinate the care of the patient, communicate with all health care practitioners, and should an attorney be involved, keep the attorney updated as to the progress of the case.
Although work injuries can happen in any work environment, some workplaces are at greater risk than others due to low safety standards or the nature of the job. Some of the most common workplace injuries are due to slips and falls, heavy lifting, stress, poor ergonomics, repetitive motions, overexertion, and falling objects.
Work injuries can range from muscle strains and sprains to whiplash, herniated discs, dislocated shoulders, concussions, broken bones, carpal tunnel syndrome, spinal misalignments, frozen shoulders, and more.
Length of treatment depends on the type and severity of your injury and your body’s ability to heal. Some people can return to work after a few weeks of treatment. For others, recovery may take longer due to having a severe injury. By resting, eating a healthy diet, and following your chiropractic regimen, you improve your chances of having a speedier recovery.
A referral is usually not needed to see a Doctor of Chiropractic.
For over 20 years we have worked with many personal injury attorneys successfully. We welcome your attorney referral to be a patient here. If you need an attorney, we have an extensive list available to help you choose one closest to your area of residence.
At your first visit, you will be greeted by our front desk and asked to fill out some paperwork telling us about your current injuries. Next, you will sit down with one of the doctors to go over your symptoms. Following this discussion, the doctor will determine the next best steps. Every case is different so the doctor will use subjective and objective information to decide on the proper next steps. After your first visit, the doctor will come up with a treatment plan that is best suited for you. At the second visit, you and the doctor will discuss that treatment plan and then continue treatment.
We will refer you for any MRI’s and diagnostic testing. We work with many qualified medical doctors and specialists to provide you with the best treatment for your condition. An orthopaedic surgeon is on our staff.
