After an auto accident, regardless of how minor, you want to make sure you are getting everything checked out by a healthcare provider. Many times people report not feeling too much pain or soreness until days or weeks after their car accident. At Atlas Chiropractic we make sure to evaluate everything in your spine.

The first step once you are in our office is to do an in depth history and evaluation of your recent accident. Then we will perform orthopedic tests and computerized infrared thermography. Whiplash is a very common injury after a car accident, so x-rays are necessary to assess the damage. At our office, we take motion biomechanical x-rays to rule out any severe injuries and see overall alignment of your head and neck.

Once all the tests are complete, we will come up with a tailored plan for you. Because of our thorough examination process, we will know exactly how you need to be adjusted and what treatment you need to get better.

What does a Chiropractor do to help with auto accident injuries?

The main focus of a chiropractor is to restore function into the spine after injuries. After a car accident, soft tissue can be damaged (muscles, tendons, and ligaments) This damage can cause the body to produce scar tissues in the joints disrupting optimal function and can lead to issues like: neck pain, headaches, back pain, and vertigo.  After an in depth history, orthopedic tests, and x-ray, a chiropractor will deliver a specific adjustment to the area in need. The adjustment is meant to break up this scar tissue and restore function and alignment. The spine is meant to move, so when you have decreased range of motion, it can lead to pain and dysfunction in the body. A chiropractor is the best health care provider you can see after a car accident.

Common Car Accident Injuries:

How does payment work for car and auto accidents?

In the state of Colorado, every driver has medical coverage that is a minimum of $5,000 unless they have specifically opted out of this coverage. The best part about this “medial pay” or PIP coverage is that you can use it to see any health care provider you choose. Most people don’t even know this coverage exists even though they are paying into it every month! Unlike health insurance, your provider does not need to be “in network” to provide care. You might as well take advantage of this great coverage and get the care you need.

At Atlas Chiropractic of Boulder we know how to handle all the billing after a car accident, so you can just focus on healing. There is no need to add to the stress you are already dealing with. If your case goes beyond your $5,000 limit, we work with attorneys like Ready Law to make sure that all of your medical care is completely covered and you will never have to pay out of pocket.

How lawyers and chiropractors work together

Being involved in a car accident is very stressful and scary. If you have never been through the process, it is confusing and can be difficult to navigate. Lawyers and Chiropractors work together to make sure you are getting all the compensation you deserve and the medical care you need. Your lawyer is there to make sure the insurance company doesn’t try to mislead you or bully you. Sometimes, in these cases, insurance companies try to get you to settle for the lowest amount of money and your lawyer will fight for you to make sure that doesn’t happen. Your chiropractor will make sure you are getting all the care you need to have a full recovery. They also make sure to document everything for your lawyer in case you go to trial or need proof of your injuries. Together they are the best team to have in your corner during this difficult time and ensure you are not being taken advantage of.
