You might be able to guess that car accidents are the biggest source of personal injuries. Next on the list you’ll find slips and falls. Accidents that happen at work or even while playing sports are common as well. And, in Northwest Florida, we see our share of boating and pedestrian accidents as well.

The most common conditions chiropractors treat that are the result of personal injuries are:

  • Whiplash
  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain 
  • Headaches
  • Sciatica
  • Herniated disc
  • Impinged nerves

How chiropractors treat personal injuries 

Chiropractors treat personal injuries by first performing a thorough medical examination. Dr. Llaird Likens has been treating personal injury for over 18 years in Northwest Florida. His certification in the Assessment and Grading of Personal Injury allows him to diagnose and plan treatment expertly. He will create a personalized treatment plan just for you.

Dr. Likens treats personal injuries with a mixture of spinal manipulation, acupuncture, applied kinesiology, nutritional support and lifestyle changes. Once you begin to heal, Dr. Likens will adjust your particular treatment plan accordingly. This holistic approach is non-invasive and can help avoid medication and surgery.

Who pays for chiropractic care

Chiropractic care has steadily gained popularity in America because it is holistic, non-invasive and truly helps people feel better. The good news is that many insurance plans cover chiropractic care. Chiropractic care is typically covered by auto insurance in the event of an auto accident. Many military veterans are eligible for chiropractic care as part of a Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) initiative. Dr. Llaird Likens also offers affordable self-pay options along with same-day, walk-in chiropractic appointments.
