Who Pays for a Chiropractor After an Accident?

after an accident

Even minor car accidents can leave a person with injuries, aches, and pains. If you have been involved in an accident, you may be making a visit to the chiropractor—perhaps for the first time in your life.

A chiropractor visit doesn’t have to be overly complicated. But if you have questions you’d like to have answered beforehand, keep reading. We will tell you everything you need to know about visiting a chiropractor after a car accident.

Why Would You Need a Chiropractor After an Accident?

Car accidents commonly lead to neck, back, and/or spinal cord injuries. And even minor injuries can worsen over time, especially if they are left untreated. 

That’s why we recommend that you visit a chiropractor if you are experiencing pain after a collision. At Veeva Clinic, our health professionals offer non-invasive and natural care to diagnose and treat injuries. And if we can help to prevent further issues, we will do that, too.

At our chiropractor’s office, you may receive any or all of these treatments:

  • Massage
  • Spinal traction
  • Electric muscle stimulation
  • Heat and cold therapy
  • Exercise

Some chiropractors even offer dietary and lifestyle services as well. And while one visit may be enough to treat your discomfort, severe symptoms may require multiple visits. We’ll develop a comprehensive plan to help you address all of your symptoms.

How Much Does a Chiropractor Visit Cost?

Just like a standard doctor’s visit, a chiropractor visit can vary in expense. That’s because the total cost will depend on the specific services you need. If your treatment requires specialized equipment and/or multiple visits, you can expect the expense to be on the higher end of the spectrum. 

Who Pays for the Visit After an Accident?

Typically, the person with an injury or their insurance provider will pay for the visit, although you may be able to seek reimbursement from the other driver if they are really at fault for the accident.

Our chiropractic team will help you to work through your insurance claim, providing the paperwork that you need to file with your provider.

With this paperwork on hand, you should be able to prove that the visits were medically necessary.
