Personal Injury Q&A

What is a personal injury?

A personal injury is any type of injury incurred as the result of an accident. Auto accidents, slip-and-fall injuries, and physical harm from defective products all qualify as personal injuries. Because your trauma is typically the result of someone else’s negligence, you can usually file a claim to have your medical expenses covered.

That’s why the team at North Andover Chiropractic provides comprehensive care for personal injuries. Not only can the team evaluate and treat your injury, they can also help you complete the necessary paperwork if you’re filing a personal injury claim.

Which types of personal injuries do chiropractors treat?

Chiropractors treat many different types of musculoskeletal personal injuries, such as:

  • Nerve damage
  • Whiplash
  • Herniated discs
  • Low back pain
  • Concussion
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Neck pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Strained muscles
  • Joint pain

Though your injuries may seem minor at first, waiting to seek treatment can prolong your recovery. Even low levels of pain can become chronic, which ultimately interferes with your mobility, flexibility, and range of motion. If you sustain a personal injury, contact the experienced chiropractic team at North Andover Chiropractic right away.

What happens during a personal injury appointment?

Recovering from your injury should be your top priority, which is why the team at North Andover Chiropractic handles any necessary paperwork for you. Make sure to contact your insurance company or lawyer prior to your visit.

When you arrive at the clinic, the team reviews your medical history and asks detailed questions regarding your injury. Understanding the nature of your injury, including the severity of your pain, is essential for the team to recommend treatment.

Next, the chiropractic team performs a full physical exam to assess your condition. They may order additional tests, such as bloodwork, X-rays, or an MRI, to accurately evaluate your injury.

Finally, the team designs an individualized rehabilitation plan that may include one or more of the following nonsurgical treatments:

  • Cold laser therapy
  • Spinal adjustment
  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Flexion distraction
  • Activator Method®
  • Massage therapy
  • Physical therapy

Regular chiropractic care can help restore full function to your damaged joints, bones, muscles, and other soft tissues.
