I've been seeing a chiropractor since my car accident. Will the cost of this care be included in my car crash recovery?

The answer to your question depends on what you do next.

Car insurance companies often try to deny injured people coverage for chiropractic services. The insurance company may argue that chiropractic care is only for soft tissue injuries and is not scientifically proven to manage your pain or improve your health. However, if you can prove to the insurer or court that you are getting chiropractic care because of your car crash injuries and that you benefit from seeing the chiropractor, then the cost of your necessary visits should be part of your recovery.

Possible Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Depending on your injuries, a chiropractor can provide non-invasive treatment for soft tissue injuries that may:

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Provide ain relief
  • Help you avoid future pain
  • Improve your range of motion

Your chiropractor will explain the potential benefits based on your unique injuries so that you know what to expect.

How to Include Chiropractic Care in Your Car Crash Recovery

There is no magic formula for making an insurance company pay for your chiropractor visits. However, it may help to:

  • Have your doctor recommend chiropractic care and note that in your medical record
  • See a chiropractor as soon as possible
  • Keep copies of all of your chiropractor bills and receipts
