FAQs on Auto Accidents

1. Can chiropractic care help me with my auto injuries?

The Medical research indicates that chiropractic care after auto or work injuries is preferred over medical therapies. In fact, you are 60% less likely to be permanently disabled if you visit your DC over an MD after being injured.

The studies also say that paid costs for care with a chiropractor are 40% less vs. episodes initiated with an MD.

2. I don't have health insurance; will my car insurance cover the cost of my injury?

If you have Personal Injury Projection (PIP) coverage, which is an extension of your car insurance, you may be entitled to a recovery of your medical expenses up to a certain limit.

If you're not at fault in the accident and someone else is, the other driver’s insurance may cover the entire cost of your expenses.

3. How long it will take for me to get better?

It varies from case to case and there are a lot of factors. How bad were you injured? Did you brace for impact? How quickly do you heal? How soon after the accident did you start treatment. At Nordquist Chiropractic, doctor Nordquist and doctor Schultz will do everything he can to get you better as quickly as possible.
