Even “fender-benders” can cause hidden injuries that can develop into pain, headaches, and arthritis. Even worse, most people who have been involved in an auto accident may not even know that they’ve been hurt. Most doctors give pain killers that only hide these injuries.
The chiropractic approach to these types of injuries is to use specific chiropractic adjustments to help return spinal function in conjunction with Massage (manual therapy) and natural Physiotherapy treatment (stretching, gait training, sensory integration, therapeutic exercises, mechanical traction, neuromuscular rehabilitation, ice and heat), ultrasound and electric muscle stimulation.

After a thorough case history and examination, the doctor will recommend any necessary care to help restore proper motion and position of spinal bones. If caught early enough, inflammation can be reduced and scar tissue can often be minimized.TIGGES CHIROPRACTIC SAME DAY DOT PHYSICALS DRUG & ALCOHOL TESTING

Most state mandatory liability insurance law (Personal Injury Protection) provides those people who have suffered from injuries in an automobile accident a minimum of $5,000 per person for reasonable and necessary expenses for one year after an automobile crash, for Chiropractic, Medical, Dental and other services needed due to the crash. Auto insurance pays for health care services treating pain that results from a car accident, so no out of pocket expenses are required for auto accident patients. This includes massage therapy services as well. Make sure to tell our staff when scheduling your first visit if the reason you are calling us are the result of an auto accident.
