A Different Approach to Auto Accident Injury

When you seek help at the ER after having been in an auto accident, they’re looking for breaks, fractures or any life-threatening problems. They do not identify injuries in the soft tissues, muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves or discs. Chiropractors are trained in addressing all of these aspects.

If you don’t get the right treatment for your injury, your body will create scar tissue to replace injured tissues. If the injured area is out of position, however, it won’t go back on its own. Meanwhile, it will wear out the cartilage and disc space, resulting in arthritis. With chiropractic, you can heal correctly and prevent any problems from occurring in the future.

Even with low-speed collisions, you’ll notice something doesn’t feel right in the days or weeks afterward. No matter what type of accident you were in, we can evaluate you and decide if you require chiropractic to get better. Dr. Reid is a certified automobile accident reconstructionist and a specialist in brain injuries and concussion.

Dr. Reid provides you thorough care and will give detailed notes to the insurance company or attorney. In doing so, we can be sure that you get the fair settlement you deserve.

Oftentimes, it’s difficult to know if we need help after having had a fender bender. Stiffness and soreness and especially pain when moving an area are all signs of some kind of injury after an incident and should be checked. Dr. Reid is happy to check you or your loved one for free with the free consultation. There is no obligation for care or treatment and you will get the opportunity to meet with him and talk about what has happened to see if anything can be done to help you. If he can help, he will. If he can’t, he will find someone who can if that is your preference.

1) Does your office work with insurance companies?

Yes, we work with all insurance companies. We also have 22 years of experience of working with the insurance companies and know how to ensure that they allow patients to get what they need and not what the insurance companies want to give.

2) Do you take x-rays?

We do take X-rays. We have an X-ray Suite in the office and have the ability to take, analyze and review any area of the body. Typically, with new patients, we like to ensure that there is nothing which can be detected via X-ray to ensure the best possible and most accurate assessment and plan can be offered. Surprises are not much fun when going to the chiropractic office and testing helps this be avoided.

3) How long does the initial appointment take?

The initial appointment takes about 20 minutes. The doctor will review the completed paperwork and then speak with the new patient face to face. He will ask questions about the symptoms, check your history of other things/ items/ treatments which you have tried and then see how the area moves and functions by asking the patient to move in basic directions. This helps the doctor know better where the problem area(s) are and how to determine the best course of treatment or further testing.

4) Do you bill insurance directly?

We typically send the insurance companies a copy of the bills and notes, yes. Quite often in auto cases however, the process is more complicated and we walk patients through the ways to ensure the insurance company will protect their bill.

5) Do you recommend any treatments other than Chiropractic care and are these services offered in your clinic?

Yes, we offer many therapies and some are in the office and many are at home. Your home. There are an endless number of at-home exercises, stretches and basic activities which if recommended and performed can help patients more quickly regain their health and promote healing, stability, strength and stamina from doing some things right at home.

6) What sort of injuries can happen in an accident?

Many injuries can occur during auto accidents. Everyone has heard of whiplash but many people believe that whiplash has to be accompanied by severe pain which it is sometimes but it is more commonly accompanied by mild soreness and stiffness. These kinds of symptoms are indicators that something has been injured. Also headaches, fatigue, the inability to feel well, irritability, sleeplessness, tingling and numbness, neck pain and stiffness, shoulder stiffness and pain, low back stiffness and soreness and pain are all symptoms which are typical of having had some kind of injury. If it is uncomfortable to lean back at the waist after having had a car accident, that is an indicator that there is injury. If you have stiffness and or soreness when moving your head and neck into regular positions, that is also an indication that there is something going on which should be checked.
