Motor Vehicle Accident and Chiropractic - An Attorney's Point of View

  • Auto accidents can leave people with a lot to deal with, including legal troubles and medical
    problems. Finding people you trust with both kinds of issues is extremely important following an
    accident.
    Fender benders and auto accidents can cause hidden and latent injuries that may develop into
    chronic pain issues, ongoing headaches, lost flexibility, and worsening of arthritic conditions.
    Frequently, people who have been involved in vehicle accidents may not even realize that
    they've been hurt.
    How Can a Chiropractor Help?
    A healthcare professional who provides chiropractic care is called a chiropractor. A
    chiropractor’s approach to ailments and injuries is to use specific chiropractic adjustments and
    other proprietary treatments to bring the spine into line and remove pressure from the
    aggravated nerves that are triggering a pain response.
    Chiropractic adjustment is also known as spinal manipulation. It is a technique in which trained
    healthcare professionals (chiropractors) use their hands, or a sometimes a small instrument, to
    place a controlled, sudden force on a spinal joint. The goal of this manipulation is to improve
    spinal motion and improve the body's physical function. Chiropractors can diagnose and treat
    problems that affect the body’s bones, joints, nerves, and muscles. Most chiropractic doctors
    also use other types of treatments as well.
    In a consultation, your chiropractor will conduct a thorough examination and recommend a
    treatment plan to restore the optimal position of the spinal bones (which in medical terms are
    called vertebrae). Your doctor will also recommend any necessary care to help restore
    movement and range of motion. Your treatment plan aims to keep inflammation in check and
    reduce any formation of scar tissue.
    A chiropractor can address many conditions that could result from a motor vehicle accident,
    including these:
    Whiplash
    Sprain and strain
    Lower back pain
    Will Insurance Pay for My Chiropractic Visits After a Vehicle Accident?
    If you have been in an auto accident, you probably have reported the accident to your insurance
    company. Or, if the accident was another driver's fault, perhaps another insurance company is
    involved. Most chiropractic offices can bill the doctor’s services directly to insurance companies
    if they have a claim number, so be sure to get one and supply it to the office staff.
    If you have Personal Injury Protection ( PIP) on your auto insurance policy, you won’t have to

    pay for chiropractic care out-of-pocket. Also, it may be a very wise and beneficial decision to
    seek legal counsel after a motor vehicle accident. If you don’t know where to turn, many
    chiropractors can refer you to a personal injury attorney who can protect your interests and
    inform you of your legal rights. Furthermore, if an attorney has already accepted your case,
    many chiropractic offices can work with you on a lien basis, meaning, the chiropractor gets paid
    from the settlement in the case.
    Without Intervention, Problems Can Worsen
    Motor vehicle injuries disrupt lives by causing the loss of wages and other lifestyle impairments.
    The earlier that chiropractic treatment begins, the better the chance that chiropractic protocols
    can minimize limitations, lifestyle impairment, and ongoing pain.
    Chiropractic patients often find themselves restored to pre-accident health and without long-
    term residual effects. So, don’t delay calling a chiropractor to get the treatment you need. Also
    be sure to reach out to a Washington D.C. auto accident lawyer to get help with any potential
    lawsuits.
