Chiropractor or Attorney – Who to call first?
If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident, it is important that you place your health first. Therefore, Chiropractor or Attorney is an easy decision. The first call you make is to a chiropractor that can assist in healing your major or minor injuries. The most common injury from a car accident is whiplash, which occurs during a quick movement of the head as sustained backward then forward or even to the side. The spine becomes unstable when whiplash occurs and causes severe pain as well as these other possible symptoms:
- Blurred Vision
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Reduced motion range in the neck
- Arm Pain
- Neck stiffness
- Low Back Pain
Chiropractor or Attorney First?
It is best to seek chiropractic care after an accident since the effect of untreated whiplash can cause long-term pain. The physical effects of an accident might not appear immediately, therefore seeking chiropractic care is essential to the health of a spine that has been through a trauma. Your chiropractor can detect damage to your spine that may not be noticeable to you yet! Calling a Chiropractor or Attorney first is becoming more clear. Contact a Chiropractor first and he can recommend an Attorney if you need one.
As you can imagine, any part of the body that has been unexpectedly thrown forward will most likely sustain stretched ligaments and tears. Those supporting the head and neck are most vulnerable to this kind of injury. Chiropractors are skilled in the care of bones, muscles, nerves and connective tissue. It is best to seek their expertise after an accident.
Early treatment means faster recovery and healing. Serious injury to the drivers and passengers can be inflicted during a minor car crash and treatments are the right step towards restoring the body. Just remember chiropractors relieve pain through spine alignment adjustments, massage or foam roller techniques, etc. In addition, besides treatment, advice for nutrition and exercises to continue you on the path to full recovery are just a few examples of the benefits of seeking chiropractic care after an accident. Well, Chiropractor or Attorney, which will you call first?

I have a question. when I was injured from an 18 wheeler, I called an attorney first and he sent me to a chiro. all was settled, they got paid, I got paid. now years later my friend has been in an accident and went to the hospital but did not contact an attorney nor the driver who hit her nor detective on the case. its been 27 days now. she went to a chiro today who said he’ll hand the case over to an attorney, but I feel that should be her decision, not his because I feel he’ll take whatever is coming for her for himself. to me it doesn’t sound right. i told her I think she should get out of that if she can and contact an attorney on her own-phone books full of them or she can use my atty.
You are absolutely correct. You can use or hire any attorney of your choosing. You can also use any chiropractor of your choosing. Almost all attorneys have a relationship with a chiropractor. It is also true that almost all chiropractors have a relationship with an attorney. This is to help facilitate the needs of their respective clients or patients. It is always your choice! Best of luck to your friend!
