Recent Auto Injury?
It’s Important To Get An Exam After An Accident
Recent studies found that up to 86% of patients who had whiplash-type injuries had significant residual symptoms, even after 10-15 years after the auto accident.
This can be prevented with the right information and treatment.
We will always offer a free consultation for those who have suffered from an auto injury.

Here Are 6 Important Questions You Should Ask Before Making Any Decisions On How To Proceed
1. I’ve been to the hospital and seen my medical doctor, do I really need to see a chiropractor?
You need a doctor who focuses on the treatment and diagnosis of auto accident injuries.
Usually, hospitals will check vital signs, make sure there are no life-threatening conditions, and release the patient with pain relief medication. They normally do not treat the underlying improper musculoskeletal biomechanics that can and often lead to future pain.
If you are still having problems, you should get a second opinion. If your M.D. has given you pills, please understand that pills do not correct structural or soft tissue damage. There are special therapies designed for that, and we offer these modalities at our office.*
2. Should I see an attorney before I see a chiropractor?
The findings from a chiropractic exam allow us to evaluate your injuries to determine whether an attorney is necessary.
If so, we can refer you to a reputable and qualified attorney.
3. Is it okay to wait to get treatment?
Most soft tissue injuries get worse with time. Damage can be minimized when addressed early.
Insurance companies usually don’t accept responsibility if you wait too long to start treatment.
4. What if my car sustained only minor damage?
According to a research study by Charles Carroll, M.D., et al, the amount of damage to the automobile bears little relation to the force applied to the cervical spine (neck) of the occupants. Some people are injured worse in low property damage accidents than accidents where more car damage occurred.
5. I caused the accident, can I still get help?
The laws in Minnesota allow you to get medical help from the provider of your choosing. Regardless of who is at fault.
6. The insurance company has been calling and wants to settle. What should I do?
Do not sign or settle until your injury has been evaluated by a certified doctor. Settling before your injury is fully resolved, will lead to payments coming out of your own pocket.
