Do Insurance Companies Pay for Chiropractic Care after a Car Accident?

Many people choose chiropractic care after a car accident at our Morrow injury center because they feel it is safer than taking prescription pain medication. Also, they realize that chiropractic has multiple benefits, because it improves the overall function of the nervous system.

But one thing worries them: will the other driver’s insurance company accept to cover economic damages for chiropractic care? Here is what you need to know on this topic.

Chiropractic Care Is a Regulated and Recognized Form of Healthcare

Many insurers are still trying to deny compensation for chiropractic by claiming that it is an alternative form of healthcare or that there is no proof that it helps the patient. In reality, chiropractic is regulated in all U.S. states and territories.

Chiropractors need to undergo training and pass exams in order to obtain their license.

As for its effectiveness, various research studies conducted over the decades indicated that chiropractic helps manage chronic pain and reduce the recovery time for various types of trauma to the joints, spine, back and limbs. These studies are backed by patients’ self-assessment, indicating that their condition improved after chiropractic care.

Insurers May Claim Chiropractic Care Means You Are Not Severely Injured

Another tactic chiropractors may use to refuse paying damages is that choosing chiropractic means you only suffered minor injuries. There are two big problems with this assertion.

First of all, you deserve compensation for damages after a car accident even if you suffered a few injuries and a small dent in your car. All victims have the right to obtain compensation under Georgia law, as long as they were less at fault for the accident than the other driver.

Secondly, many people with spine, neck and head injuries rely on chiropractic to manage pain and restore function of the injured body part. Their injuries are severe, some of them required surgery, others are facing months of physical therapy, chiropractic and other treatments.

Choosing chiropractic is absolutely not an indication that your injuries are not severe and do not deserve compensation in full.
