Frequently Asked Questions
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries that result from rear-end collisions. In a rear-end collision the body is suddenly thrust forward, then back. This can result in micro-tears in the soft tissues of the neck and middle of the back. Whiplash can result in severe pain in the neck and upper back. It can also cause headaches, dizziness, stiffness and tenderness.
When you come to our office because of injuries due to an accident, we will use diagnostic tools, including onsite x-rays and exam, to determine the extent and severity of your injuries. Based on our findings, we will tailor an individualized treatment and recovery plan designed to minimize pain and accelerate your healing process.
Patients always want to know if the insurance company will cover treatment for their injuries. We work with a number of different insurance companies. We can walk you through filing a personal injury claim and help you fill out the appropriate forms. If your injury is due to an accident, you will not pay for any of your chiropractic care visits. We bill your insurance company directly.
