In the event that you were injured at home, work or in an automobile related incident, conservative care may be the correct choice for you.
Therapy will always be personalized for your individual needs. The list below includes options for treatment.
Chiropractic Care - Chiropractic Physicians are uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat injuries sustained in automobile accidents. Chiropractors receive considerable training with emphasis placed on the musculoskeletal system. Gentle spinal adjustments and light physio-therapy are utilized to treat your injuries.
Medical Massage Therapy - Massage therapy is one of the most overlooked treatments that quite possibly provide the most benefit after an auto injury. We immediately utilize soft tissue massage therapy after an injury to help restore muscles and joints to full function.
Adjunctive Care - Additional treatment options may include hot and cold packs, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and manual traction.
Rehabilitation Exercises - If needed, more thorough physio-therapy and exercise instruction will be provided. Specific injuries to extremities such as a knee or shoulder injury may require rehabilitation exercises. An appropriate program will also provide therapy for neck and back injuries.
Medical Doctors - We maintain a large database of qualified medical doctors including Orthopedists, Neurologists, and other professionals. We make sure you receive complete care for your injuries by making the appropriate referrals for care when needed.
- Diagnostic Imaging - Proper imaging studies such as X-rays and MRI may be ordered to ensure proper treatment of your injuries. These pictures of your bones, discs, and ligaments will show the full extent of your injuries and are pain free procedures.
Good news. If you are a Minnesota resident and have been involved in a car accident, your medical bills are automatically covered by your car insurance. Health insurance is not required and even if you have health insurance, it is secondary to your auto insurance for injuries sustained as a result of an auto accident. Most people don't realize this and your insurance company usually won't tell you unless you first tell them you are injured.
Minnesota is a "no-fault" auto insurance state, which simply means that no matter who caused the accident, your own auto insurance covers your medical bills. Your auto insurance is a form of health insurance in the case of an auto accident. If you are a passenger and don't have your own auto insurance, you are covered by the driver's auto insurance.

- We bill your auto insurance directly. No unnecessary paperwork.
- We work to properly document your case.
- We will provide the appropriate referrals for X-ray, CT, MRI studies and to other qualified healthcare facilities as needed.
