Detroit, MI, February 09, 2013 --(PR.com)-- A female patient at a Metro Detroit Chiropractors clinic was recently involved in an auto accident resulting in a whiplash injury with symptoms of neck pain, back pain, headaches and numbness in her hands and feet.
Her accident injury claim was supported with documentation and deposition by her treating physician Dr. Chris McNeil. The patient was awarded $86,000 from Progressive insurance.
Metro Detroit Chiropractors used a medical team approach including Orthopedist, Pain Management, Neurologist, Radiologists and Chiropractors. The patient was treated for all three phases of healing including pain management for the inflammatory stage, chiropractic physical medicine for the repair phase and active rehabilitation and neurological stretching for the remodel phase of healing. Objective Diagnostic tests included X-Rays, CT scan, MRI and EMG was used to confirm the diagnoses and response to treatment including permanency of injury.
Dr. McNeil explains how his documentation supported the patients claim for an unusually high soft tissue injury settlement. Dr. McNeil states “I have found most doctors do not take the extra steps needed to document the injury and are unwilling to take time from their office to give depositions or go to court. Quality care is only one piece of the puzzle necessary to help those who are injured in auto accidents.”
