Unfortunately, all of us have the risk of being involved in an auto accident each and every time we get into a vehicle. When this occurs, Dr. Staggs is willing and ready to assist you.
Dr. Staggs understands the importance of a thorough evaluation so he can develop a treatment plan that will help you return to normal as soon as possible. Auto accidents frequently cause what is referred to as a “whiplash” injury. This can be a very traumatic type of injury, with many components that are felt immediately, and some that are manifested at a later time. Our office goal is to determine the extent of those injuries and effectively treat them in order to return patients to their best level of health possible.
Motor vehicle injuries can be wide ranging and complex. Not only can it cause musculoskeletal injuries from head to toe, it can also produce devastating injuries to the brain and nervous system. More times than not, a person injured this way may not even realize this has taken place until months or even years following their accident. By that time treatment options are limited and usually their 3rd party case has already settled. That is why, no matter how “minor” your accident seems, you should be evaluated as soon as you can!
Chiropractic care has been demonstrated to be one of the best methods for treatment following an auto injury. Specific adjusting procedures, along with stretching and strengthening exercises are vital in the return to normal health for victims of auto injuries.
Referrals to other health care professionals are also important if the need extends beyond chiropractic care. Dr. Staggs will make the proper referral(s) so you can get the care you need. Our goal is to make sure our patients get the best and most complete care possible.
Lastly, most patients are confused by how the insurance coverages work when they are involved in an auto accident. The staff at Staggs Chiropractic will have you well versed in 3rd party and med pay claims. Additionally, Dr. Staggs will refer you to competent and ethical legal counsel if the need arises.
