1. Be Patient – You will get better, but it can takes months of healing as your body experienced a very large amount of force.
  2. Flare Ups – It is normal to have aggravations of your injuries. Healing is an up and down process.
  3. Getting to 100% – Follow your treatment plan! National statistics show an average number of treatments is 26 for whiplash injury.


  1. Chiropractic Adjustments – Spinal manipulation is very important as your injuries produce spasms, stiffness, and tight muscles. This causes the spine to not work properly. Restoring the motion and alignment of the spine is paramount to your recovery.
  2. Physiotherapies – This includes exercise, electrotherapy, moist heat, myofascial release, massage, cold laser therapy, etc.
  3. Initial and Final treatments – It is important for the insurance company and the attorney to have a formal discharge from our clinic. Our clinic produces an extensive initial narrative and a final narrative that is very important for your case.
  4. Duration and Frequency – People respond the best with the following:
    1. 3 times per week for 4 weeks
    2. 2 times per week for 4 weeks
    3. 1 time per week for 4 weeks.
  5. Referral – If you are not responding to care, (you should experience some improvement with each treatment) or need co-managed, we have an extensive network of professionals that we work with.

Who Pays for Your Treatment

  1. Med Pay (your auto insurance) – By default you get $5,000 with certain policies to use for medical bills. It is your advantage to use your Med Pay
  2. No – Med Pay = Lien (others auto insurance) – The at fault auto insurance will not pay medical providers directly and will only pay through settlement via an attorney at the end of your treatment, you may need a car accident lien.
  3. Health Insurance/Cash Visit – We don’t accept health insurance or cash prices as our contracts and cash prices do not include the documentation services we provide for auto injury patients.


 Need or Not Need? – If you have been injured and the damage to your car is greater than $1,000 then you need an attorney. If you are being treated on a lien, you need an attorney

  1. Which Attorney? – We have a list of attorneys that we have found reputable and professional that we prefer to work with, but you are free to use your own attorney.
