Chiropractic Care & Massage Therapy Treats Back Pain, Personal Injury
#1: Is a chiropractor a qualified injury doctor?
Yes, a chiropractor is a licensed medical professional who has completed a Doctor of Chiropractic program. This program includes supervised medical training in spinal manipulation and musculoskeletal injury diagnosis. Our Sewell chiropractor Dr. Eulo completed his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Life University in Marietta, Georgia. He is nationally board certified and holds licenses in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
#2: Is chiropractic care safe?
Yes, chiropractic care is safe and effective. Dr. Eulo uses only non-invasive techniques to gently adjust the spine and restore proper alignment. Chiropractic adjustments are safe and beneficial for young children, adults and senior citizens.
#3: I’ve already been to the hospital; do I really need to see a chiropractor?
Yes, even if you have been to the hospital, you may still benefit from chiropractic care. This is because hospitals provide urgent care that treats the symptoms of your injury, not the underlying cause. For example, if you have sustained a whiplash injury, a hospital may provide pain medication and a neck brace. However, these treatments are only provide temporary relief, not a back pain or neck pain long-term solution. A chiropractor is trained to identify and treat musculoskeletal injury through spinal adjustments, correcting the underlying cause for pain.
#4: Who pays for my accident injury treatment?
If you are the victim of an auto accident, then the your insurance company will
cover the cost of your treatment. This is why it is important to see a chiropractor for an initial diagnostic consultation prior to develop a proper treatment plan to get the quickest results in a short amount of time. Doing so will help to ensure full medical coverage for all your injuries.
#5: What methods will be used in my treatment for an auto injury?
Chiropractic care is an effective auto accident injury treatment technique because it directly addresses the musculoskeletal misalignments responsible for a victim’s back pain, neck pain and headaches. Our chiropractor also integrates complementary therapies into our treatment program, including massage therapy.
#6: Can I get massage therapy for my car accident injury pain?
Yes, massage therapy is beneficial for not only relieving musculoskeletal pain and tension, but also supporting the body’s natural injury rehabilitation process.
#7: Should I see an attorney before I see my chiropractor?
You are welcome to speak with your attorney at any point following an accident injury. If you do not currently have an attorney, our chiropractor can help you select a reputable injury attorney.
