Consultation & History
An initial consultation and review of history helps the doctors at Optimal Spine & Posture understand what injuries your crash may have caused. A thorough health history will give us the important information on additional health conditions that may complicate the recovery process or may have increased the likelihood of injury in the crash.
Exam & Diagnosis
An exam is necessary to determine the exact injuries suffered in the crash. A typical exam includes; range of motion testing, a physical exam of the spine and extremities, and appropriate orthopedic and neurological tests. A baseline posture photo and analysis is also necessary.
Specific imaging such as x-rays, MRI or CT scans may be ordered to rule- in or rule-out specific pathologies.

Insurance – Make it Simple
Ensuring your medical bills are paid through your own car insurance medical coverage (Med-Pay) or by a 3rd parties car insurance requires proper documentation and diagnosis of the injuries and treatments. Poor documentation is the number one reason for medical claims being denied. Your medical records need to clearly explain what caused the injury, (mechanism of injury), how previous medical conditions or injuries may impact the current injury, the diagnosis, treatment plan, and prognosis for recovery.
