"If you were in a recent car accident, you may need chiropractic care or attention."
There were tens of thousands of car accidents in Arizona last year. Car accidents are a fact of life in today’s world. Many car accidents appear minor in damage but can leave people with a lifetime of problems.
Even if you are not currently in pain, there may be underlying and hidden damage to your spine and muscles. Whiplash and other car accident injuries may take weeks to start producing pain. Injuries to the neck, back, arms and legs can become progressively worse without proper treatment.
If you experience any of the symptoms below, make an appointment at our office immediately and call 602.279.5288 Immediately!

If you have any of these symptoms, please call our office today so that we can evaluate the extent of your injuries. Injuries from car accidents tend to become chronic the longer that treatment is delayed.
An article published in the Journal of Orthopedic Medicine in 1999 pointed out the superiority of chiropractic care for patients suffering from long term whiplash. The authors of the article noted that a previous study had shown that 26 of 28 patients, or 93 percent of patients with chronic whiplash became better with chiropractic care. The author went on to state that “chiropractic is the only proven effective treatment for whiplash.”

Many people make the mistake of not coming for treatment because they don't have health insurance. Injuries from car accident are paid under the auto insurance policy. This insurance (called PIP) is mandatory in Arizona. Our treatment is fully covered by automobile insurance policies, no matter who is at fault, and no matter whether you were the driver, a passenger, or a pedestrian. Our office accepts car insurance payments as payment in full (no co-pay or deductible). We will submit the necessary insurance paper work and help you file a claim with the auto insurance company.

Back injuries are the most common type of work injury. Other common work injuries include: carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back pain, headaches, neck pain and shoulder pain. Many of these injuries are caused by repetitive stress (doing the same thing over and over again). These are work injuries even if work activity is only partially responsible.
For individuals hurt in a work accident on the job in Arizona, the law mandates that they may chose chiropractic care for their injuries. Work injuries in Arizona are covered 100% by workers compensation. Many times companies will try to direct their injured workers to specific doctors and although the company may suggest that you attend these doctors, they may not force you to do so. It's not uncommon for company doctors to be more concerned about the best interests of the company than those of the injured worker. They may offer less care than you really need.
You will never find that situation in our office. Our patients come first. Although we like to think of ourselves as being both company and patient friendly, we will never ignore or minimize your injuries at the insistence of the company. Additionally, we will communicate well with your employer and the Workman's Compensation Board, write reports and attend any hearings required.
If you have an old injury which has not responded to previous treatments or you have become dissatisfied with the care you have received, contact our office today. We are expert in the treatment of joint, muscular and spinal worker's compensation injuries. In addition to chiropractic care, we utilize various effective therapies and offer rehabilitation on site.
