Many doctors, both medical and chiropractic, treat car accident whiplash injuries. These doctors are free to treat any condition that is in their scope of practice. Just like any medical doctor, specialized or not, can perform surgery or give you a face lift, if there is a willing patient. But do you really want your general medical doctor doing brain surgery on you? I doubt it.
Chiropractors are trained in a board array of musculoskeletal disorders that cause pain. Any general chiropractor can do a half way decent job of treating a whiplash injury for pain relief. But do they understand the big picture and long term ramifications if they merely relieve pain and do not rehabilitate the injured spine? Do they know the specific language and formatting of reports that your lawyer will be able to admit into court as evidence?
Personal injury is a specialized area of practice. There is much to know to not only treat the patient successfully, but to also present the medical facts in a manner and language your attorney and more importantly insurance companies and juries will understand. It can take years of study to gain this knowledge and it is tedious work.
Well meaning doctors may take on your case and provide care, but all the while they are undermining the case. Improper language in the file, poor documentation of the facts, an incomplete examination, the wrong x-rays, incorrect diagnoses, these and many others are all the minor paperwork details that the average chiropractor or MD just has no training in or desire to be fastidious about. But, trust me, these are all crucial elements to a well documented case that will allow you, the injured party, to recover as completely as possible medically, but also in your legal case.
The proper diagnosis of a car accident whiplash injury takes time and expertise. A thorough understanding of the mechanism of the crash is needed to understand what body parts may be injured even if they are not immediately painful. The car accident doctor must know the red flag signs that require immediate transfer to a hospital. A complete understanding of head injuries and how to detect even minor ones is vitally important. A mild brain injury will cause a whiplash injury case to be prolonged and recovery slow and possibly incomplete. Undiagnosed the chiropractor may dismiss your case as a minor strain. This could lead to long term problems.
