Did you know that you most likely have a policy on your car insurance that covers medical expenses? This coverage is called Med Pay. 

Med Pay is insurance you have on your car insurance that covers medical expenses after a car accident. 

In Colorado you can choose from $5,000 to up to $25,000. Colorado law requires that you be given the option to buy $5,000 in Med Pay coverage at the time you buy your car insurance. 

Can You Use Med Pay For Chiropractic In Boulder?

Yes! The great thing about Med Pay is that you can use it for any medical provider you choose. A chiropractor is a great provider to see after you get in a car accident. Many times after an accident you might “feel fine.” The reason for this is you have so much adrenaline pumping through your body that it masks many symptoms and pain. After a few days or weeks many people start to feel neck pain, headaches, back pain, or even vertigo. The best way to get rid of these symptoms is to get chiropractic care as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the longer it will take for your body to heal. 

How Do I Know If I Need To See A Chiropractor After a Car Accident?

If you are dealing with pain in your neck, back, or head, you need to see a chiropractor. Pain is the way your body communicates with you to let you know that there is a problem. After a car accident, muscles, ligaments, and tendons may get damaged and react in a way that may cause pain.

How Does Chiropractic Help After A Car Accident?

A chiropractor will do a full evaluation to see what is damaged and will take extra time to look at your spine. Many chiropractors will take x-rays to make sure there aren’t any sort of fractures caused by the accident. After the initial evaluation you will begin treatment. This will include adjustments to your spine to regain movement to the areas that are not moving from the crash. The lack of movement and the buildup of scar tissue is the cause of your pain and headaches.

How Do You Find A Chiropractor That Can Help You?

Most people will google “back doctor chiropractor” or “chiropractic care center”, but how do you know if it is the right office for you? I would suggest that you do two things. 1) Check their online reviews. See what other people have said about the office and if they have a good reputation.  2) Call the office and ask if they handle car accident patients and if you can use your Med Pay.
