Auto Injury Treatment at New Life Chiropractic

Dr. Beth stretching patient neckAt New Life Chiropractic, we treat patients suffering from a variety of injuries. Whether you were in an automobile accident, injured at work, or while being a weekend warrior, we can help!

Regardless of how it happened, these injuries can turn your life upside down. Especially in the case of an automobile accident as not only are you in pain, but you may be without a car and having to deal with insurance companies.

We understand the bio-mechanical relationships that result in pain and discomfort from a whiplash-type injury. And you may also be suffering from headaches, low back, and a variety of other symptoms.

At our Haverhill practice, Dr. Beth Greene has treated thousands of patients suffering from auto accident and industrial-type injuries. We know that prompt care following an injury helps to speed the healing process, gets you out of pain faster, and helps to prevent degeneration (arthritis) down the road.

The good news for Massachusetts drivers is that PIP coverage is mandatory and covers your treatment 100%. It doesn’t matter whose fault the accident was; you are covered. We deal with your insurance company so all you have to worry about is feeling better.

  • Recurring headaches
  • Pain and muscle tension in the neck and between the shoulders
  • Stiffness or pain in the lower back
  • Loss of Sleep
  • Nervous tension – fatigue
  • Numbness or pain in the arms, hands, legs, or feet

After a complete history and a careful examination of your injuries, we will determine the most appropriate course of treatment to get you feeling better quickly. Along with gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments we will also provide physiotherapy modalities and rehab to get you back to functioning better. We will also manage your case and make any necessary referrals for MRIs, X-rays, or the referral to a specialist. Please allow an hour for this appointment.

I wasn't traveling fast when my auto accident occurred. Why do I need to get checked?

Your body can still sustain trauma in a low-speed accident such as a fender bender. Very often your spine is injured along with all the soft tissue around it. So it’s essential to get checked.

Even if you’re slightly achy after an auto accident your body will heal up how it’s going to heal up-which may be in an improper position. Whether you’re involved in an auto accident or any accident, it’s important to get aligned as your body is healing and laying down scar tissue, because it’s going to heal in a more proper position.

Are there other therapies you recommend?

Yes, in addition to chiropractic, we often recommend physical therapy and massage therapy to provide comprehensive care. If you are experiencing any neurological symptoms that aren’t responding to our care, Dr. Beth will refer you to a neurologist or an orthopedic doctor.
Will insurance pay for my care?

Yes, in Massachusetts, if you get into an auto accident, your personal car insurance pays for it, whether or not you were at fault.
How long will it take me to recover from my injuries?

Though every patient is different, typically it will take 2-3 months of regular chiropractic care. Dr. Beth’s job is to get patients to pre-accident status as much as possible. She wants to get them to the point where they’re plateauing and then Dr. Beth will release them.
