Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve been to the hospital and my medical doctor. Do I really need to see Dr. Eggleston?

Often, the ER does an examination to only rule out life threatening injuries. A thorough evaluation is necessary to evaluate and document whiplash or soft-tissue injuries. Dr. Eggleston takes special x-rays to evaluate these injuries and does special computerized tests to determine the extent of the injuries. Even though muscle relaxers, pain killers and anti-inflammatory medications are sometimes helpful initially, they often mask pain and don’t prevent future problems from developing. Dr. Eggleston does therapy and rehab that helps the spine heal so they extent of these injuries are minimized in the long term.

Do I have to pay out of pocket for the treatment?

My staff is trained to contact the responsible party’s insurance company and advise them that you are receiving treatment. We will treat you on an assignment basis which means you don’t have to pay for the treatment each day. Once we complete all necessary treatment, we will send all the records and the bills to the insurance company and no payment will be expected until your case is settled.

I have not heard from the insurance company. Do I have to wait until they contact me?

No. If you are injured, it is very important that you get evaluated immediately. Often, it takes weeks or longer until the insurance company contacts you. Just notify my staff of any information that you have regarding the accident and we will contact the responsible insurance company.

Does the treatment in Dr. Eggleston’s office hurt? Is the treatment safe?

Dr. Eggleston uses gentle techniques that are soothing and provide relief of pain. While there are possible side effects to any treatment, chiropractic care and therapy is extremely safe especially compared to the possible side effects of drugs and surgery.
