Accident Care at Cahill Back & Neck Care Center

Dr. Stinson loves helping patients recover from accidents—whether it’s something that happened on the job, or an auto accident. For every patient, he’ll take a unique approach to learn about your specific needs, injury and goals.

Man holding neck after accidentDid you know? Studies indicate that even a rear-end car crash at just 5-7 miles per hour can produce 5-7 G’s on your neck in a quarter of a second—that’s up to 7 times the force of gravity pulling at your neck in a fraction of a second.

As you might imagine, that’s not good for your spine or nervous system.

While we agree that it’s important to visit an urgent care center or even emergency room to get checked after an auto accident, you should also schedule a visit with our practice—that’s because urgent care centers don’t always check for the underlying structural damage caused by a car accident, but we do.

In fact, Dr. Stinson regularly sees patients who come into the practice complaining of neck and back pain. X-rays will reveal an arthritic neck, and he’ll ask, “So, when was your car accident?” Sometimes, the patients reply that it was more than 20 years ago! If only they’d found chiropractic sooner, care may have helped them develop healthy scar tissue instead of a chronic issue.

How Care Helps

Chiropractic care for auto accident victims is meant to identify structural problems that may have occurred in your body as a result of the accident. The sooner we’re able to locate the problems, we can focus on restoring function and getting you back to feeling your best. Ultimately, the quicker we can evaluate you, the better chance you’ll have at making a quick, full recovery.

Even if you aren’t in pain (yet), we recommend visiting us for an appointment. That’s because it can take days, weeks or even months for your body to experience pain as ligaments and bones settle into their new improper position. The longer you stay misaligned, the longer it generally takes to restore proper function.

Working With Lawyers and Insurance Companies

Dr. Stinson is happy to refer patients to top attorneys in the area if they come to us without one and need help with their case. We can also provide records of your care to insurance companies or attorneys on your behalf.

Workers in warehouseDr. Stinson is proud to help patients of all walks of life who may have experienced an on-the-job injury.

Most commonly, injuries sustained in the workplace have to do with improper lifting techniques repeating movements over and over when performing a task. We welcome patients of all walks of life, from electricians to roofers, office workers, and the lovely folks who work down the street at the UPS distribution center.

In addition to focused chiropractic care, it’s our responsibility to also help you prevent the injury from reoccurring, so we’ll offer you tailored stretches and exercises to strengthen the problem area. Our ultimate goal is to restore proper function and mobility to your spine and body for the long haul.


Will worker's compensation cover my care?

Absolutely. Worker’s compensation will cover the cost of your chiropractic care.
I was injured on the job but don't want to file a claim. Can I still get care at your practice?

Yes, we welcome all patients who are injured to seek chiropractic care. We would encourage you to reconsider and think about filing a claim with worker’s compensation—if you do, your care will be completely covered. Some patients voice a concern with being fired if they file a claim, but please know that it is 100% illegal to be fired for filing a worker’s compensation claim.
What are some types of common on the job injuries?

We’ve seen a lot of different on the job injuries over the few decades we’ve been in practice. Some of the most common injuries include head and neck problems, low back pain, plantar fasciitis, leg, knee or hip issues, disc herniations and more.
