Treatment with No Out-of-Pocket Expense

Episode 3: Welcome to today’s episode of Dr. Todd Black’s podcast. People assume using a mobile chiropractic care service must be more expensive than traditional models of care. Dr. Black discusses this misconception and explains how Chiropractor2U is able to bring high-quality chiropractic treatments to your home or office, with little or no out-of-pocket expense to his clients.

Dr. Black’s Focus on Minimizing Patient Expenses
From the start, Dr. Todd Black wanted to make it easier for patients to get the quality care they needed. The fees he charges to treat you at your home or office are the same as if you were to treat with him at a traditional office.

In fact, because the majority of the patients seen by Chiropractor2U have recently been involved in an automobile accident, the majority of the treatment cost will be covered by insurance. Patients typically have little to no out-of-pocket expense (i.e. a deductible). The deductible can be held on account and settled up at the end of your accident claim.

In the state of Kentucky, no-fault insurance pays for medically necessary treatment resulting from a motor vehicle accident. It generally provides up to $10,000. This is commonly referred to as no-fault coverage or personal injury protection (“PIP”). It automatically covers insured drivers and each passenger.

How Does It Work?
Dr. Black has a mobile bus that he uses to enable him to perform chiropractic exams and adjustments, inside the bus. This innovative approach is how he’s able to conveniently treat patients at their home, office or other location. You might say he delivers “Heals on Wheels.”

To schedule an appointment, you can either contact Chiropractor2U via the website (www.Chiropractor2U.com) or if you prefer, simply call or text (502) 309-9037 to get started.

Dr. Black has practiced for over 25 years. He’s certified by the American Board of Independent Medical examiners as an independent chiropractic examiner, signifying expertise in both impairment ratings and independent chiropractic evaluations.

Your Initial Visit with Chiropractor to You
Once you have contacted Dr. Todd Black, you’ll need to complete a few standard, medical forms. You can download them from the website or Chiropractor2U can send them to you via courier.

Once Dr. Black arrives at your home or office, he will listen to you describe the accident and the resulting pain you’re experiencing. Dr. Black will perform an examination to see how and where you are sensing pain. In Episode 2, we discussed how patients may not realize their range of motion is being limited. The initial exam will uncover this and may help to better understand what is the specific source of your pain.

If x-rays are required, Dr. Black may refer you to a walk-in radiology facility. If he prescribes the need for x-rays, the no-fault insurance will typically cover this medical expense, as well. If you have already been to the ER, he may be able to review any x-rays that are already available.

After the diagnostics have been performed and reviewed, Dr. Todd Black will ease you into a treatment plan designed and customized specifically for you and your condition.

Soft Tissue Manipulation
Many accident victims experience soft tissue injuries. These are injuries to the muscles, ligaments and tendons resulting from the violent forces the body experienced during the auto accident. Dr. Black will use chiropractic techniques to identify the location of the pain and begin manipulating the area to ease the pain.

People may not realize that the body produces chemicals to help itself recover from an injury. This is part of the inflammatory process. Dr. Black’s chiropractic manipulation techniques work with the tissues to reduce the inflammation and help to relieve the patient’s pain.

Soft tissue manipulation is different from an actual adjustment. It’s similar to a typical massage, but chiropractors employ different techniques to get the medical results they are targeting. He may use some stretching exercises, moist heat, electric stimulation (such as a tens unit). All of these treatment modalities are available and performed on the treatment bus.

What Areas Does Chiropractor2U Cover?
Dr. Todd Black services the entire Louisville metro. This includes downtown, Prospect, Fern Creek, Okolona and even Shepherdsville and Elizabethtown. Chiropractor2U was developed to make quality injury care simple, easy and affordable.

Common Mistakes People Make After a Car Wreck

Episode 2: Welcome to today’s episode of Dr. Todd Black’s podcast. This episode is about mistakes people make after a car wreck. We’ll also discuss the importance of chiropractic treatment plans. The majority of Chiropractor2U’s clients have been involved in some type of automobile accident. Dr. Black will discuss common injuries and how Chiropractor2U’s mobile chiropractic care model can help patients get back to normal.

Common Car Accident Injuries
Whiplash happens very often. It can cause headaches, neck pain, back pain and/or radiating pain, etc. The numbness or tingling in the extremities can be from nerve damage, caused by the car wreck.

Pain in the shoulders, knees, ankles and wrists are also common issues for people who’ve experienced an automobile accident.

Delayed Onset of Pain
Adults often overlook the possibility of injuries to children who may have been passengers in the car at the time of the collision. Both adults and children can experience a delayed onset of pain. At the time of the accident and in the hours immediately following, the body’s true pain-level may be masked by adrenaline. As the days progress, the adrenaline wears off and the true symptoms emerge.

Should You Contact Dr. Black?
Most people tend to contact Dr. Black and Chiropractor2U within 24-hours of experiencing a car wreck. Some have already been to the ER. Others may try to tough it out. The following morning’s pain and stiffness may indicate the need for chiropractic care.

3 Common Mistakes People Make After a Car Wreck
Dr. Todd Black has practiced for over 25 years. He’s treated many auto accident victims. Here’s a list of mistakes people make regarding their health and pain.

  1. Trying to tough it out. Ignoring the pain is something many people think is the appropriate thing to do. Unfortunately, the pain may be caused by a serious, medical issue. At the same time, it prevents you from fully enjoying the life you had before the accident. If the pain persists, consider contacting Chiropractor2U. Dr. Todd Black will design a custom treatment plan for your specific situation.
  2. Applying dry heat. Many people initially attempt to treat the injury or pain by themselves. A heating pad may be one of the methods used. Initially, the heat can feel good, but it can also accelerate the inflammation, resulting in more pain.
  3. Trying to get back to normal too quickly. After an injury, the body needs time to heal. Oftentimes, people begin experiencing compensation pain because they are using different muscles to compensate for pain felt in the injured area.

The Importance of Completing Your Treatment Plan
It’s not uncommon for people to begin feeling better after a few initial adjustments (i.e. treatments). It’s at that point, some decide to discontinue their treatments. This can be a mistake.

Dr. Todd Black explains that a treatment plan is a care plan developed help you recover from your injuries. The pain may feel less than it was originally, but the body may still need help healing. He brings his mobile chiropractic office to his patient’s home or office. This innovative approach makes it much more convenient for an injured person to continue receiving the prescribed number and types of treatments. Think of it as “Heals on Wheels.”

Chiropractor For Whiplash Pain

Your body can be violently jarred in a car wreck. A common result is extensive pain in the head and neck. The good news is that you can see a Louisville chiropractor for whiplash pain. Let’s talk about whiplash.

The term “vertebral subluxation” refers to the misalignment or minor dislocation for the spinal bones (e.g. your vertebrae). When the vehicle impact occurs, forces are exerted on the car, which quickly transfers to the bodies of the driver and passengers. This sudden slamming can easily cause the head and neck to twist, stretch and snap back. This typically results in strain to the muscles, ligaments and discs between the vertebrae.

If you’re wearing your seatbelt at the time of the car wreck, your torso is restrained, but your head is unsupported and will whip to the front or side (depending on the direction of the oncoming vehicle). You may experience:

  • Neck pain
  • Inflammation
  • Shoulder pain
  • Nerve pain
  • Headaches
  • Tingling and/or numbness
  • Difficulty focusing on tasks and maintaining concentration

An experienced chiropractor will do an initial exam to determine your treatment options.  Sometimes, immobilization is the right approach.  Once the body’s initial inflammation runs its course, chiropractic therapy can help to restore your alignment and heal those aches and pains.

Chiropractor2U is a concept that you might find helpful.  Dr. Todd Black is a licensed chiropractor who will come to your home or office.  Our exam/treatment tables are completely portable.  You’ll be able to easily receive the therapy you need, without driving across town in stop and go traffic.

Additionally, Chiropractor2U will provide valuable medical documentation.  Medical records are an important part of the negotiations of any car wreck case.

Chiropractor for Automobile Accidents

One of the most common complaints from anyone who’s been in a car wreck is the aches and pains. These usually occur in the neck and back. The sudden impact can exert significant forces on your neck and spine. The good news, is that there’s been a long history of using a chiropractor for automobile accidents.

Chiropractic care specifically targets those injuries and tries to relax muscles and realign bones and/or joints. What’s also important is that Chiropractor2U will maintain valuable medical records regarding your diagnosis and treatments.

Insurance companies often use medical records in considering the nature of your injuries and what they should pay for them.

It’s not always easy or convenient to take time off work to go to a hospital and sit in the waiting room. Often, chiropractic care can offer an easier way for you to begin the healing process. Chiropractor2U has built its business on treating patients in their own homes of offices. It’s a way for you to continue to get the medical care you need, but on your schedule.

You’ll be glad to know that finances aren’t an obstacle to you getting the proper care for whiplash pain. All licensed drivers have personal injury protection (PIP) as part of their coverage. This provides up to $10,000 for medical bills and other expenses. This coverage is available to uninsured passengers.

What this means for you is that you very likely already have the funds available to immediately begin treatment for your aches and pains related to your car wreck.

Chiropractor2U can work with you to ensure that you have the proper documentation for your treatment expenses.

At the end of the day, the benefit of using chiropractor for automobile accidents can definitely work in your favor. Not only will be begin to feel better, it may have a positive impact on your financial recovery.

Why Chiropractic Home Care?

Years ago, doctors routinely provided home care to patients.  The focus was on treating the patient, not the doctor’s schedule.  Wouldn’t it be nice if that were still the case?  Actually, now it is.

Dr. Todd Black has over 20 years of practice.  He’s seen many patients get stressed out by their care while they are trying to heal.  The stress is often due to a patient’s inability to treat during regular office hours or because of other impediments such as:

  • Lack of transportation
  • Busy work schedule
  • No time to treat
  • Caring for an elderly parent or spouse
  • Child care schedules
  • Traffic delays and frustrations
  • Extended wait time at the doctor’s office

Chiropractor2U was designed to address and eliminate those challenges.  We’re even available evenings and weekends.  You can get home care for your strained neck and back, as well has healing massage for sore muscles.
