Did you know that chiropractors are actually auto accident injury experts? Sending your client to the chiropractor is crucial to help them get the care they need.

We thought it be helpful to answer some of the most frequently asked questions we get about personal injury cases!
FAQ About How Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Personal Injury Case
Why Choose Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries
Yes! Most commonly, a person’s first thought after an auto accident is to book an appointment with their primary care provider. Unfortunately, even though PCPs know a little about everything, their experience is based on general medicine, not musculoskeletal injuries. A chiropractor is an expert in auto-accident injuries and specializes in treating soft tissue and musculoskeletal damage.
Auto accidents often cause whiplash, neck pain, back pain, thoracic compression fractures, sprains, strains, and injuries such as ligament and muscle tears, which don’t always appear in an X-ray. When a client suffers an injury from a car accident, chiropractors have the expertise to help heal them faster. However, even among chiropractors, not all chiropractors are the same in proficiency to detect, diagnose, and treat auto injury conditions.
Yes! Chiropractors complete additional training in how the spine, neck, and connective tissue and muscles all work together. They also specialize in recognizing and diagnosing common auto-accident related injuries that other doctors may miss. This means your client could actually receive more compensation for their injury because they have a chiropractor on their side.
Save Your Client Time and Money By Choosing Chiropractic Care
After an auto accident, a chiropractor can treat musculoskeletal injuries that often don’t show up in X-rays and can address the causes of what might otherwise become chronic pain. In many cases, an auto injury can heal faster and be less painful along the way through evidence-based chiropractic care. Seeking chiropractic care as soon as possible helps to reduce pain, reduce the need for medication, restore range of motion, prevent or reduce scarring, and accelerate recovery. In addition, it can also help to ensure that their insurance and legal claims are accepted.
Amid the chaos and emotion of the accident scene, they may not yet feel the pain of their injuries right away, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t there. No matter how they feel directly after an accident, it is crucial to seek medical and chiropractic evaluation immediately. If they wait too long, insurance and opposing counsel can assume that their injuries must not have been severe enough to support your claim. A chiropractor is trained to evaluate for and provide documentation of auto-accident related injuries that will help support and build you a strong case.
The cost of a chiropractor after a car accident varies by doctor, location, and treatment needed. In addition to their personal injury case, your client should review their auto and health insurance policies to see what is covered by medical and auto insurance’s personal injury protection. Your client should look for or ask about what percentage of expenses they will pay for and what maximums apply. Also, have them find out whether their chiropractor is included in their plan’s network and what deductibles, copays, and other expenses they will need to pay out-of-pocked.
