Chiropractor Whiplash Questions: Documentation, Recovery

In parts one and two of this multi-part blog series, we’ve gone over a number of questions you may consider asking your chiropractor throughout the process of treating whiplash following a collision of any kind. From initial questions like availability and expertise to in-office questions about treatment plans, recovery times and more, there are several different queries you may run by a chiropractor during this process.

At Peterson Chiropractic, we’re here to offer the very best whiplash treatments and other car accident chiropractor services for patients around Salt Lake City and other parts of Utah – and we’re happy to answer any and all questions you have throughout this process. Today’s final entry in our series will look at a few other important questions to consider asking your chiropractor during any kind of whiplash or auto accident treatment.

Do You Provide Documentation for Insurance?

In many cases involving car accidents, your insurance company will need proper documentation from your chiropractor to approve coverage for treatments. You may also need to submit documentation to your insurance company in order to receive compensation for lost wages or other expenses related to the collision.

Therefore, it’s important to ask your chiropractor if they provide this documentation and what you need to do in order to obtain it.

Do You Work With Other Medical Professionals If Necessary?

In some cases, whiplash or other collision-related injuries may require additional medical treatment. It’s important to ask your chiropractor if they work with other medical professionals, such as physical therapists or orthopedists, and if they can coordinate care if needed.

For instance, if your whiplash injury requires physical therapy, it may be beneficial to have both your chiropractor and physical therapist working together to create a treatment plan that addresses all aspects of your injury.

What Can I Do At Home To Aid In My Recovery?

While receiving regular treatments from your chiropractor is an important part of the recovery process, there are also steps you can take at home to aid in your healing. Ask your chiropractor for specific exercises or stretches you can do on your own, as well as any other recommendations for at-home care that may be helpful for your particular injury.

When Can I Resume Normal Activity?

While we went over general recovery time in our last blog entry, it’s also important to ask your chiropractor when you can safely resume normal daily activities, such as work or exercise. Your chiropractor will have a better understanding of your specific injury and recovery timeline and can provide guidance on when it’s safe to return to your regular routine.

At Peterson Chiropractic, our goal is not only to treat your whiplash injury effectively, but also to educate you on how to prevent future injuries and maintain overall spinal health. We hope this blog series has been helpful in providing some guidance for what questions to ask your chiropractor during this process – and as always, we’re here to answer any additional questions you may have along the way.
