Personal Injury Q & A

What is a personal injury?

A personal injury occurs because of someone else’s negligence (lack of attention). 

Most personal injuries are minor, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit a qualified medical professional. A chiropractor can diagnose your injury, fill out documentary paperwork, and coordinate your recovery with the rest of your health care team.

What are some examples of personal injuries?

At Complete Healthcare, the team treats various personal injuries, including:

  • Auto accident injuries, like whiplash
  • Slips and falls
  • Concussion
  • Fractures
  • Dislocated joints
  • Sprains and strains

Sometimes, personal injuries result in persistent headaches or chronic pain.

If I have a personal injury, what can I do?

Stop everything if you experience a personal injury, and contact Complete Healthcare immediately. Explain your injury and the symptoms you're experiencing to the administrative staff. They can make recommendations to relieve pain on your way to the office and get you in for a same day visit.

If your injury occurs at work, alert your immediate supervisor and request workers’ compensation paperwork.

What happens during a personal injury visit?

Your Complete Healthcare provider reviews your medical records and asks about your injury and symptoms, including what you were doing when it happened and if you have pain, bruising, or swelling.

Next, they complete a physical exam, gently pressing on the affected area to identify sensitive spots. Then, your provider looks at your skin for bruising, redness, or swelling and checks your muscle strength, reflexes, and range of motion.

If an exam doesn’t provide enough information to diagnose your injury, the team orders X-rays, CT scans, or MRIs. These imaging procedures capture detailed photos of your bones, joints, and soft tissues, helping guide treatment.

How are personal injuries treated?

At Complete Healthcare, the team treats personal injuries using a conservative and integrative approach. Your provider may recommend:

  • Spinal decompression
  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Stretches
  • Spinal traction
  • Ice packs
  • Spinal adjustments
  • Electrotherapy
  • Mechanical massage units
  • Low-level laser light therapy (LLLT)

You may benefit from several types of treatment depending on the severity of your injury.

Can personal injuries be prevented?

You can reduce your risk of personal injury by paying attention and wearing the required personal safety equipment. For example, if you work around tools, always wear safety glasses, hearing protection, and gloves. Likewise, buckle your seatbelt whenever you get behind your car's wheel.
