What to Expect When You Hire Dominguez Chiropractic
Don’t suffer from neck pain any longer than you have to. There is no need for you to hire a law firm or have an incident report when you start your neck pain treatment.
Once you come to see us, we will:
Provide a Personalized Treatment Plan
There is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan. One of our chiropractors will ask you:
- About your injury and its symptoms, and how it happened
- What your everyday routine is like
- How this injury is now affecting your day-to-life
They will then perform a physical examination of the injured area. From there, we will determine the root of your neck pain and which type of treatment will best fit your injury. You don’t have to make another appointment to start your treatment, as we will begin right away.
Follow up with You
After your condition improves, it is still a good idea to check in with us. Not only will regular visits decrease the chances of your suffering the same injury again, but they will also reduce the risk of incurring long-term medical expenses.
It is important to note that we keep a record of all your visits. So, if you decide to file a case against the party that injured you, then you will already have evidence showing that you needed and received medical treatment.
Refer You to a Personal Injury Law Firm
If you were injured in a car collision, at work, or slipped and fell on another person’s property, we can recommend a personal injury law firm you can consult. They will tell you your legal options and see if you are qualified to pursue compensatory damages.
Types of Treatment Our Neck Pain Chiropractors Offer
We will exhaust all of our options so you can feel better and live pain-free. Some of the treatments we can offer are:
- Massage therapy, which will help loosen up your muscles and nerves
- Spinal decompression, which will relieve some of the pressure from your spine
- Physical therapy, so you can help strengthen your muscles and tendons through various exercises you can do during your appointment and at home
- Spinal adjustment, which can help correct your alignment and overall motion of your back
If we feel like you need more than the treatments listed, we can have our onsite MD prescribe you a medication to help you with the pain.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Of course, the purpose of going to a chiropractor is to heal your injuries. However, there are other ample benefits when you go to one, such as:
- Improved posture
- Improved athleticism
- Alleviating overall tension in the body
- Increased flexibility
- A lessened need for painkillers
- Improved scoliosis symptoms
You might end up feeling better than you did before your injury after receiving chiropractic care.
Do Not Put off Your Treatment
The longer you wait to seek medical help for your neck pain, the more opportunity you give your injury to worsen, or it might open the door to suffering more injuries. What’s more, delaying treatment can hurt you during the legal process.
- Insurance companies might try to dispute your claim
In order to pursue a case, you need documentation that you suffered injuries and consulted medical professionals for treatment. Without this evidence, your claim may be declared invalid.
Should you wait to get treatment, the insurance company might say that your injuries aren’t that serious or that something else caused them. However, you could argue that the effects of your injuries came on a few days or weeks after the incident, which is not uncommon.
Time Limits for Your Case
OCGA §9-3-33 allows victims two years to file a lawsuit. This deadline is strictly enforced, and you might be barred from recovering compensation if you miss it.
A Closer Look into Neck Pain
We all suffer neck pain at some point, but when we are hurt in an accident, we want to pay extra attention to it. Johns Hopkins Medicine affirms that symptoms of neck pain are:
- Sharp pain
- Burning or tingling sensation
- Muscle spasms
A neck injury doesn’t just affect the neck. In fact, victims can suffer from pain in the upper extremities and back, as well as headaches.
Types of Neck Injuries
The Mayo Clinic explains that because the neck is so flexible, it is more prone to injuries than other body parts. Examples of neck injuries include:
- Whiplash: This injury is common in car accidents and contact sports, like tackle football. It usually occurs when your neck is jerked back and forth.
- Herniated or bulged discs: These injuries occur when the spine is compressed and puts pressure on the nerves.
If you think you are suffering from other types of neck injuries, we still want you to come in so we can get to the bottom of your injury.
