COMMON MYTHS: Low speed collisions do not cause injuries. FALSE. There is no known threshold for injury. For example, collisions as low as 2.5 - 5 mph during testing have injured human volunteer test subjects.

You can tell how badly someone is injured by how badly the vehicle is damaged... and no vehicle damage means no injury. FALSE & FALSE. There is no relationship between property damage and occupant injury. Collision impact forces that are not strong enough to damage a stiff car can still damage the occupants.

Pain will go away on its own. FALSE. A significant percentage of those injured suffer chronically. Pain that is left untreated, over time, can change the nervous system and a chronic pain syndrome can develop.

Next, pain from a motor vehicle collision is the result of tissue damage. Tissue damage when left untreated may lead to arthritic changes, loss of range of motion and other tissue changes. Torn muscles, for example, don't get replaced with muscle. Regretably, the body replaces torn muscle with scar tissue. Scar tissue does not have the ability to move like muscle tissue moves. It is stiffer, weaker and less elastic to future trauma. The scarring process (if not managed correctly) can create excessive intra-muscular scarring. This scarring is another frequent source of chronic pain and would have been preventable, had the injury been managed properly from the beginning.

Just taking over the counter medication from the drug store for awhile is all one needs to do. FALSE. Injury is injury. Pain medication covers up the signal. Pain is a signal that your body needs help. Covering up the pain is like covering up a warning light on your cars dashboard. The problem is still there even if the signal is covered up.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a motor vehicle collision, get examined right away! We are here to help you. Call (651) 925-5530 to make an appointment today.


Work Injuries

Injured workers may receive necessary chiropractic care. Few plans have limitations on which doctor you can choose. If you been a patient in the past with a doctor, typically you may see the same doctor again.

If you are injured while performing your job duties, first report the injury to your supervisor. MN law requires employers to carry insurance for injuries at work. Workers Compensation covers 100% of your injury treatment. Once you begin seeing a chiropractor, you have only 12 weeks from that point forward to complete your care with your doctor. Depending on your severity, more care can be authorized.

If your work comp carrier has a managed care contract, there may be some exclusions. Call us at (651) 925-5530 and our experience staff can help you with the paperwork and claims information.
