Get Back to Optimal Health Quickly after a Personal Injury
A personal injury can be caused by any number of situations. They can range from car accidents, product defects, assault or many other incidents. If you or a loved one are experiencing any pain resulting to circumstances beyond your control it is important that you make sure you clearly understand the extent of your injuries so that you can receive the proper long term care.
It is critical that chiropractic care is sought immediately after a car accident; allowing the effects of whiplash to go untreated can induce long-term pain. The severity of the physical effects of a car accident are not always felt immediately. It can take days, weeks or even months for major symptoms to show up, which is why chiropractic care is essential to maintaining the health of a spine that has suffered a trauma.

Exercise rehabilitation therapy
Therapeutic Exercise Rehabilitation can help to alleviate pain by improving your muscle strength and flexibility. Weak muscles can often lead to a misshapen skeletal structure and dramatically increase the risk of injury or the worsening of your condition.
Ultrasound and electrical stimulation
Electric muscle stimulation is a physical rehabilitation therapy modality that is used to stimulate muscle contractions using electrodes from an electric stimulation machine at our facility. These contractions help to control pain, manage inflammation and strengthen the muscle.
Ultrasound therapy helps to reduce muscle pain and movement dysfunction. Sound waves deliver deep heat to the areas of the body that need treatment. As a result of the sound waves, the patient benefits from reduced stiffness, swelling and pain. Increased circulation and the promotion of pain-free movement are positive effects of using ultrasound therapy.
Massage therapy goes hand in hand with chiropractic care and helps to improve circulation, remove toxins and accelerate the healing process.
Working with Insurance
Dr. James Turn works with many types of insurance. Our office can counsel you on how to file a personal injury claim, or you can review our insurance information page for more details.
Personal injury protection (PIP) coverage is mandatory for nearly all auto insurance policies. With PIP coverage in place, you and all the passengers in the car are insured regardless of who is at fault for an accident (typically up to $15,000). It also covers you if you are a pedestrian or a cyclist. PIP insurance covers medical expenses and lost wages and will pay for your care of injuries, including costs and co-pays for chiropractic care, out-of-pocket prescription costs, or other similar costs.
