Within the first 48-72 hours after the accident, your body is experiencing an acute inflammatory phase in which you’ll likely feel worse before you feel better. Often, a chiropractic treatment within this 48-72 hour window will provide temporary relief. However, to ensure that you gain the optimal benefits from your treatments, we recommend waiting out that initial 48-72 hours before coming into our office for treatment.

We are unable to file a Third Party Auto Insurance Claim, as these liability claims are set up to pay the injured party, not the doctor. The liable insurance company will issue a one-time settlement check to the injured party for medical care and pain and suffering after all treatment has been rendered and the patient has been release from treatment. In the State of Texas, this process can take up to 3 years. For this reason, many insurers issue a separate rider on their clients auto insurance policy called PIP (Personal Injury Protection) Insurance which covers your medical care and time lost wages, and is designed to protect your pocketbook in the event of an accident, especially when you are not at fault. In the State of Texas, your insurance company cannot raise your insurance rates due to filing a claim on your PIP policy. Our office will file a claim for all PIP policies except Allstate. Please ask the office manager for more information about opening a PIP claim.
