Workers Comp & Auto Accidents

Workers Comp Car Accident Treatment in San Antonio 

If you’re injured in a work-related accident, one of the first things you should do once you’re able is to get a clear understanding of the worker's comp benefits that you may be entitled to. Some benefits need to be claimed within a certain amount of time, so in order to ensure that your medical expenses are covered without too much delay, it’s essential to report your injuries and file your claims as soon as possible. When inquiring about your benefits, don’t forget to ask about the range of health care providers you’re allowed to use in your recovery.

These days, most complementary healthcare services such as chiropractic treatments and acupuncture are included in workers comp benefits, but it’s important to get confirmation from your insurance provider before you visit a practitioner so that you won’t end up incurring any out-of-pocket expenses.

Types of Auto Accident Related Worker’s Comp Claims

If you drive regularly as part of your job and you are hurt in a car accident while working, this is an injury that should be covered by worker’s comp insurance. At Dr. Phillips Chiropractic, the type of injuries that we routinely treat as a result of auto accidents are things like whiplash, back strain, bruised and sore muscles, joint inflammation, arm or leg fractures and dislocated shoulders. Even if you don’t immediately notice any outward injuries, it’s important to see a chiropractor right away, as there may be latent injuries that won’t show up for days or even weeks after the accident. These types of “hidden” injuries can be easily detected through an x-ray exam and can help keep minor injuries from turning into much bigger problems down the line.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Accident Victims

Once you’ve been examined after an auto accident and we’ve had a chance to pinpoint the root cause of your specific injuries, we can customize chiropractic adjustments to help alleviate neck pain, back pain or any other type of pain you may be experiencing as a result of the accident. Our chiropractor, Dr. Phillips, is highly experienced and very careful about doing spinal manipulations on patients who have experienced trauma to their bodies. His hands-on treatment can be gentle but highly supportive and effective when applied to alleviate pain and promote ongoing health maintenance, recovery, and strength.

Post-Accident Care

Ongoing, all-natural health and injury prevention is the ultimate goal for chiropractic care. Once we have performed customized spinal adjustments, done follow-up exams and prescribed a regimen of at-home stretches and exercises to enhance the effectiveness of the chiropractic treatments, we can begin a schedule of monitoring your progress as you advance through the healing process. Eventually, visits may taper off to “as-needed” visits but, just like regular exercise is important for good health, periodic chiropractic maintenance can impact your overall physical, mental and emotional well-being in an extremely positive way.
