Chiropractic Care After a Personal Injury
When someone receives a personal injury due to an accident, their first thought is to visit the doctor. After the doctor has repaired any severe injuries, he or she may recommend that you see a chiropractor in order to focus on key medical issues that aren’t so easily fixed by traditional medicine. If you live in the Greensburg or Export area and you're seeking chiropractic care to help cope with pain resulting from a personal injury, contact Westmoreland Chiropractic and Rehab Associates.
Why a Chiropractor?
Even if the primary injury isn’t located in your neck or back, it is highly possible that either body part has been affected. If your neck or back feels the slightest ache or pain, you may need an adjustment. Ignoring the ache or pain is unwise because the injury could become much more severe if it is left to heal by itself.
Chiropractors Can Treat Other Injuries Too
In addition to those we have discussed, your specialist can treat a herniated or a slipped disc. The chiropractor can also help with spinal injuries that are more serious than a simple sore back. Make sure you reveal the full extent of your injuries to your doctor. This will ensure that you receive a treatment plan that is customized to suit your specific needs.
What About Physical Therapy?
Something we have not talked about yet is whether or not your personal injury requires physical therapy. If it does, who takes care of that? Our experts will perform specific tests and provide a diagnosis that may or may not involve physical therapy depending on the outcome. In a situation that has resulted from an auto accident, who pays for the physical therapy? Our chiropractor should be able to provide written proof that the injuries were caused by that accident. If that is the case, your insurance company is responsible for the costs of physical therapy. However, if the other person is deemed to be the cause of the accident, then their insurance will pay for it.
