Our Doctors of Chiropractic specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and documentation of patients who are injured in accidents. These accidents include work related accidents (workers compensation),construction accidents, automobile accidents (no-fault), and slip and fall accidents. Many of the injuries sustained in traumatic accidents can be successfully treated by chiropractic care. Chiropractors focus on restoring the spine to its normal function by correcting misalignment’s and restoring proper range of motion while relieving pressure on the nervous system. This is done through a series of gentle adjustments to the affected areas. After an accident, the injuries are sometimes too severe to be fully correctable through Chiropractic treatment alone. This is why we will include both Orthopedists and Pain Management Specialists in the treatment of the injuries as determined by the severity of the injuries.
The frequency and length of chiropractic care will vary depending on several factors. Generally long-term treatment is needed for conditions that are more severe, or occur in conjunction with another health problem. Patients who sustain severe injuries such as serious work accidents or car accidents may require more treatment.
The paper work involved in acquiring benefits through Workers Compensation can be complex and intimidating. This is why our staff is expert at filing the necessary paperwork and helping you navigate through the process of getting the healthcare you need to recover and get back to work. The good news is that there is no cost to you if you are injured while working on the job. As long as you are treating with a New York certified Workers Compensation Doctor, the cost of your medical care is covered by your employers Workers compensation insurance. This same insurance will pay for your lost wages if you are unable to work. It is recommended that you obtain the assistance of an attorney specializing in Workers Compensation law to help with the filing of your claim and any necessary paperwork to protect your rights and obtain lost wages and compensation for any permanent injury sustained while working.
