Personal Injury and Chiropractic Care

What is Personal Injury?

If you have been in a car accident, injured at work, tripped on the street, injured at home, or made an assault claim, you have been in a personal injury. A personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions- rather than damage or injury to property. This term is normally used to refer to a type of tort lawsuit alleging that the plaintiff's injury has been caused by the negligence of someone else. Personal injury can also include both medical and dental accidents.

The Role of Chiropractic Care in Personal Injury Matters

Personal injuries are very common. When you are hurt or injured in a car accident, the last thing you want to deal with is that your insurance won't cover your medical bills, or that you might not get relief right away from your pain. Unfortunately, these dilemmas happen more often than not if you do not follow the advice of your attorney. A lot of attorneys are now referring their clients who have suffered from a personal injury to chiropractic care for two reasons:

  • Insurance companies pay for chiropractic care services
  • You will experience pain relief immediately, even after your first visit

The role your chiropractor in your personal injury case might seem simple. However, your chiropractor provides your attorney with important information on a day to day basis about your injury, and any improvements you are experiencing, as well as an estimate for your recovery time and any lingering effects that may still be there after you complete your chiropractic treatment period.

When you first get injured, your pain is at its worst. A typical chiropractic treatment plan in the beginning is up to three times a week. As your pain starts to subside and your injury gets better, your sessions with your chiropractor can be as little as once a month. Eventually, you will be ready to stop having treatments all together-but it is very advisable to continue to have chiropractic adjustments periodically to help keep your spine and the rest of your body healthy.

Chiropractic care may also include therapeutic exercises to help accelerate your healing process and might suggest massage therapy to restore muscles and get rid of muscle tension. Be sure to follow your chiropractor's advice and his instructions completely and correctly to avoid more strain or making your injury worse which can cause more discomfort and prolonged healing time.
