Auto Accident Injury
DEALING WITH WHIPLASH?
The term "whiplash" is used to define rapid extension and flexion of the neck that results in damage to the muscles, ligaments, and tendons that support the head. Symptoms of whiplash may include:
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Low Back Pain
- Reduced Range of Motion
Chiropractic care utilizes manipulation of the spine to return the spine to proper alignment. When the spine is properly aligned the muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the neck can heal properly. Combined with exercises and therapies (massage, cupping, graston) this is the most effective form of treatment for whiplash.
INSURANCE BENEFITS: MN NO-FAULT
The basic premise behind the Minnesota No-Fault Automobile Insurance Act is that anyone owning a car in the State of Minnesota is required to carry insurance to cover their own medical expenses, wage loss, and other economic losses arising out of an automobile accident. The injured person's insurance company will pay medical expenses, wage loss, and other economic losses regardless of who was at fault in causing the accident. Filing a claim under the No-Fault portion of your insurance does not affect you motor vehicle insurance rates as there is no party deemed at-fault.TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MN NO-FAULT ACT

WHY DO I NEED TO GET TREATED IF I WASN'T INJURED?
