"I am experiencing pain from an auto accident, how can Chiropractic help? It has already been determined that my auto accident did not cause any life threatening injuries."
Dr. Kerner is an expert in auto accident cases and treats these injuries every day. Dr. Kerner will perform a thorough evaluation and determine the Chiropractic care that you need.
Schedule a Chiropractic check-up right away with Dr. Kerner.
Why? You may be experiencing neck pain (whiplash), back pain, headaches, numbness and tingling, soreness, muscle stiffness or spasm, ear ringing, dizziness, hearing loss, blurred vision, and/or difficulty sleeping.
*Please note that even if you are not feeling any pain or obvious symptoms, it is still highly recommended and important to get a check-up right away. Symptoms from auto accident injuries can take time, even months or years to manifest. Just because you are not feeling any pain now, does not mean that you will not feel it later. When you feel it later, you may end up with a chronic condition! It's better to get a check-up with an expert and know for sure the extent of your specific injuries.
Dr. Kerner's patients range from children to seniors, and it is important for everyone in the car to receive a check-up.
There are NO minor car accidents when it comes to your health!
You may not realize that when you were in your car accident, regardless of whether it was a "minor" car accident or a "major" car accident, THOUSANDS OF POUNDS OF FORCE were exerted on YOUR neck and spine. That's an alarming thought, and a Chiropractic exam will determine the actual damage that your body has suffered. Dr. Kerner will determine if there are any injuries to your ligaments, discs of the neck and spine, or soft tissue damage. If needed, X-Ray services are available on-site. If you need any further tests, Dr. Kerner can order them for you. If Dr. Kerner can't help you, he will refer you to the appropriate specialist.
"Do I file a claim with my auto insurance company? How does this work?"
Yes. You will need to call your auto insurance company to let them know that you were in an auto accident and will be getting an exam with Dr. Kerner. We can help you verify your insurance, complete the insurance paperwork and help you file a claim. We've been through this many times before.
Your Chiropractic exam and treatments are generally covered in full by your automobile insurance policy, whether you were the driver, passenger or pedestrian. It does not matter who was at fault.
"My auto insurance policy does not cover medical. Can I still get the Chiropractic care with Dr. Kerner that I need?"
Yes. We accept Attorney Liens, which means we receive payment from your attorney when your case settles. If you have an attorney already, please have them contact us. If you need an accident attorney, Dr. Kerner can recommend some for you. He works with a number of attorneys in the Bay Area. In addition, there may be other ways that your Chiropractic care can be covered. We would be happy to discuss these options with you.
OUR GOAL is for you to have a quick and complete recovery from your auto accident. We care about your health and don't want you to suffer needlessly. We understand that being involved in a car accident is stressful, and we are here to help make this process as easy as possible.
