Benefits of Chiropractic Care After a Traumatic Event
If you’ve been in an accident, the top priority is getting the medical care you need. Chiropractic care is often required after traumatic events like automobile collisions.
Beyond this, there’s also the question of health-related insurance claims – and possible legal action.
If another person is to blame for the incident that caused your injuries, you can consult a personal injury attorney about filing a lawsuit. A successful claim can award you compensation for damages like medical expenses and lost wages.
Here’s how a chiropractor can help.
Grand Oak Healthcare offers dedicated injury care for individuals who have been in accidents.
Car crashes, workplace accidents, and slip-and-fall events are a few types of personal injury cases that may result in musculoskeletal damage and require a chiropractor’s attention.
Chiropractic care after a traumatic incident can treat various ailments, including:
- Herniated disc
- Spinal misalignment
- Soft tissue damage
- Neck, back, and shoulder pain
Chiropractic care is a popular treatment option for such issues because it’s safe, effective, and non-invasive. Additionally, it minimizes the need for pharmaceutical medication, reducing the risk of possible drug dependence.
A chiropractor can also provide the medical documentation you need to prove your injuries’ type and extent, giving you the official paperwork that you need to move ahead with an insurance or legal claim.

The Importance of Prompt Personal Injury Claims
When it comes to personal injury claims, it’s imperative to take swift action. Your insurer will want to be notified immediately. There are also legal considerations
Statute of Limitations
When it comes to lawsuits, you are up against the statute of limitations. This is a legal deadline by which you’re required to file your claim. In Georgia, you must file any civil personal injury lawsuit with the state’s courts within two years of the incident.
Although two years might seem like a long time, you want to take action as soon as possible
Waiting to file a lawsuit can hurt your case.
For example, the defendant might try to argue that your injuries were actually incurred elsewhere, after the accident, and that you’re just trying to use them as a scapegoat.
