QUESTION:

I was in a car accident; Can I get massage for my injury?

ANSWER:

When to have massage after an injury is something you should discuss with your LSM Chiropractor. Massage is usually reimbursed from the automobile insurance company if it is necessary to further the healing of the injury. Used with chiropractic, it can be an important tool, but there are some techniques that should be avoided during the healing process. Your LSM Chiropractor can talk to your massage therapist, or recommend one, so that you have personalized care.

QUESTION:

I was in a car accident, how can chiropractic help me?

ANSWER:

There is no such thing as a “minor” car accident.  When struck by another vehicle, the energy transfers both to the car and occupants.  As a result, your body sustains significant forces that can cause damage to ligaments, muscles and joints.  Even a five-mile per hour rear end collision causes the force of falling out of a second-story window.  Anyone who has been involved in a car accident should seek chiropractic care as soon as possible.  This includes all occupants of the car, including children.

QUESTION:

I was injured on-the-job (work compensation injury); Do I need a referral to see you?

ANSWER:

No. Wisconsin has some of the best Worker’s Compensation laws in the country.  You have the choice of any practitioner you would like to see, including chiropractic.  Chiropractors specialize in musculoskeletal injuries that are common in the workplace.  This includes lifting injuries, slips and falls and other assorted sprain-strain type injuries.  Early intervention provides the best short-term and long-term results.  If injured on-the-job, contact LSM as soon as possible.
