Car Injuries / Accident
What are the facts. In 2014 there were 78,936 motor vehicle accidents in Minnesota that involved 190,070 people. This amounts to 216 car accidents per day!
What is the cost of treatment? Because of the no-fault laws in Minnesota, the examination, any necessary x-rays as well as treatment is typically covered at 100%. You DO NOT need a referral to see a chiropractor. Also, going to seek treatment, by law, cannot increase your car insurance rates. Call our clinic at 651-528-8254 to set up your initial consultation.
I need a referral: A lot of people think that they need to see a medical doctor to get a referral in order to see a chiropractor. This is not the case. Because of our extensive training and education levels, especially with musculo-skeletal injuries, in Minnesota you do not need a referral to see a chiropractor first.
I don't have good health insurance: Any injury that takes place while in a car falls under your car insurance and not your medical insuranct. In Minnesota personal injury protection (PIP) is commonly referred to as no-fault insurance. You may receive up to $20,000 in medical and $20,000 in other non-medical expenses such as lost wages.
How am I going to pay for care?: Because care falls under your car insurance, it is typically covered at 100% (unless you have a deductable, then that needs to be met first). After any deductable is meet you can focus on the care you need.
ittle Pain Following Accident: At times following a car crash there is little pain or pain that was present seems to go away after a couple of weeks. This does not mean no damage has been caused. The image below is an example of a patient who had no pain two weeks following an old car accident.

Care for Auto Injuries/Accidents
“I started out seeing a physical therapist after my auto accident, but still had flair ups. I started treatment with Dr. Carlson after I had a really bad flair up and was unable to do almost anything. I have been coming to see Dr. Carlson for a while and have not had any more flair ups! I would definitely recommend Dr. Carlson to anyone.” William. H
