Personal Injury/Workers’ Compensation Care in Bend

Dr. Dan adjusting mans neckIf you’ve been injured at work or in a motor vehicle accident, you need attention right away. Ignoring your problems or trying to cope with your pain can be dangerous to your current and future health.

Some of the most common injuries we see after an accident include low back pain, extremity pain and whiplash. You might have headaches that occur further down the road. Sometimes, we see people who were in an accident decades ago who are still experiencing problems from the degeneration in their spine that set in after their injury.

We want to encourage you: don’t minimize your problems! Get the help you need at Bend Whole Health Chiropractic.

Why Urgent Care Might Get It Wrong

Emergency care facilities play a vital role in today’s health care. If you head to an urgent care facility, they are trained to look for life-threatening injuries. They may be able to diagnose whiplash in some cases, but can often overlook other issues. They also do not have the tools to take care of nerve-related pain.

Did you know that your body’s soft tissue healing cycle is constantly occurring? That means as soon as you’re injured, your body is working away to try to fix you. The problem is that the repairs that occur may not be done right; for example, scar tissue can build up. By addressing your issues right away, you have a better chance of returning your body to its normal state.

Understanding the Full Picture of Your Needs

Our priority when you become our patient is to understand the total picture of what has occurred. That entails a detailed exam and having images taken, whether X-ray, MRI or both. We may refer you out to an orthopedist, neurologist, neurosurgeon, nurse or physical therapist. You can consider us your quarterback, getting your case to the right person.

The treatment plan that we recommend from you will vary depending on the nature of injuries and your level of health. After your evaluation, we’ll let you know what we think your best options are so that you can decide how you’d like to proceed.

How to Prepare For Your Appointment

If you have already had X-rays taken, please be sure to bring them in along with any other relevant medical records. If you’ve been in a car accident, bring the police report, insurance information, adjuster’s name and policy number. Those who take several medications find it easier to bring in a written list than try to remember what they’re taking once they’ve arrived.

Chiropractic, Massage and Other Therapies Available

Dr. Dan is skilled in a variety of chiropractic adjusting techniques. He can use the drop table or instrument adjusting as appropriate for you. As a part of your care, he may recommend interferential current, heat therapy or cold therapy right away. Over time, you may be ready to get a massage added to your care plan, which assists with lymphatic drainage and can help with your long-term healing.
