A personal injury can have a multitude of causes. They can range from car accidents, product defects, assault or many other incidents. If you or a loved one are experiencing any pain resulting from a personal injury, it is important that you clearly understand the extent of your injuries so that you can receive the proper long term care.
Get the care needed immediately after an accident to alleviate pain:
Dr. Thomas Young specializes in whiplash treatment for patients involved in a car accident. One in six car accidents can result in a case of whiplash. Whiplash is a potentially chronic and painful condition that can benefit from chiropractic care.
Getting the body back on track after a car accident can be tedious and frustrating. Due to the release of adrenaline and other stress hormones, the body may not be able to feel the full extent of some internal injuries with the spine (i.e. whiplash, tissue damage or a bulging disc) until hours later. It is important to seek treatment right away with Dr. Young.
Our rehabilitative care can help with the following conditions after an accident:
- Neck pain or lower back pain
- Tingling, numbness or pain in the limbs
- Loss of range of motion
- Dizziness, headaches or blurred vision
- Trouble walking
Chiropractic care with other non-invasive modalities can aid in healing the body faster after an accident by balancing the nervous system:
Because the effects of whiplash are often delayed, receiving a full spinal analysis and posture screening after an accident is extremely important. It serves as the initial step to formulating a treatment program. Whether it is neck pain, soreness or burning soft tissue pain, chiropractic care can aid in returning the body to its pre-accident condition. We will work with you to find an effective course of action.

WE ACCEPT AUTO INSURANCE AND WORKERS’ COMP
Lakewood Natural Medicine and Chiropractic 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.
