A car accident chiropractor can help with your recovery from a car accident in a variety of ways. There are dozens of car accidents in Massachusetts every day. Even at speeds as low as 20 miles per hour, a car accident can cause serious damage to your body. From problems such as whiplash, to joint dislocation and more, a car accident chiropractor can help you in ways beyond just treatment. Here are some examples:
1. A Car Accident Chiropractor Can Help With Insurance Paperwork
After a car accident you need to call your auto insurance company to let them know that you were involved in a car accident and that you will be getting an exam at Barbati and Davies Chiropractic. We can then help you verify your insurance coverage for chiropractic treatment. Our experienced staff has been through this process many times.
2. A Car Accident Chiropractor Is Able To Create A Medical Record
By creating a medical record, the car accident chiropractor will document your injuries and in most cases, be able to attribute the injuries that you sustained directly to the accident you were involved in. Sometimes, insurance companies try to claim that your injuries are due to a pre-existing condition, so seeing a medical practitioner or a car accident chiropractor can save you from later frustration.
3. A Car Accident Chiropractor Can Assess Your Injuries
A car accident chiropractor is also able to assess your injuries and suggest treatment methods. Our office is equipped with an x-ray machine, so we are able to assess and take care of even complex injuries.
4. A Car Accident Chiropractor Can Formulate A Treatment Plan
Depending on the type of injury, a car accident chiropractor can formulate a customized treatment plan designed to relieve you from pain and help you move and feel better. One of the main causes of car accident injuries is your body being forced into a sudden movement. This sudden movement can result in injuries such as whiplash which is felt in the neck or back region. There are also many other injuries that can occur, such as herniated discs or bone fractures, which can cause chronic problems if not taken care of immediately.
So don’t hesitate to consult with your chiropractor after a car accident. Feel free to give us a call and one of our experienced staff members will be happy to answer your questions and help you through the insurance process.
