Accidents happen, but it’s the aftermath that has the most effect on people’s lives. We recently sat down with Overland Park, Kansas, chiropractor Dr. Justin Grabouski to find out the benefits of chiropractic care after a personal injury. Here’s what he had to say.

Q: What, exactly, is a chiropractor?

Dr. Justin Grabouski: A chiropractor is a healthcare professional trained to treat the spine and nervous system. We practice a form of complementary medicine that can help ease people’s reliance on pharmaceuticals. Chiropractic care after personal injury might include helping to relieve pain from the back, neck, legs, pelvis, shoulders, arms, and hips.

Q: Are chiropractic treatments considered noninvasive?

Dr. Justin Grabouski: Absolutely. In our office, we provide gentle, targeted chiropractic adjustments to patients of all ages following accidents to aid the body in healing. We can help with range of motion and reduce inflammation triggered by an impact injury. A chiropractic adjustment following an accident drastically reduces the likelihood of needing surgery down the road to repair damage.

Q: How does chiropractic reduce inflammation?

Dr. Justin Grabouski: Any time you experience an injury, there can be microscopic tears in the tissues surrounding the impact site. Unfortunately, x-rays can’t pick these up on ligaments, tendons, and muscles. When you undergo chiropractic care after a personal injury, each adjustment encourages the body to produce its own anti-inflammatory chemicals. This decreases inflammation and can reduce pain while improving healing time.

Q: What are some symptoms of whiplash that chiropractic might be able to help with?

Dr. Justin Grabouski: Whiplash happens when your head is jerked quickly backwards or forwards. It is common during vehicle crashes, especially when rear ended. Whiplash can cause extreme pain, neck tightness, decreased range of motion, stiffness, jaw pain, and muscle spasms. When you undergo chiropractic after a personal injury, we will evaluate your condition and provide a treatment plan centered on chiropractic care to help you heal.

Q: Are there any long-term benefits to chiropractic care?

Dr. Justin Grabouski: Absolutely. In addition to reducing inflammation to recover from an injury, chiropractic care can also help treat migraine headaches, herniated discs, and vertigo. Ongoing treatments can also help reduce back and neck pain in the long term. Further, chiropractic is safe for people of all ages, meaning that the entire family can visit our office to experience the benefits.

Water Damage? Steps To File A Claim With Your Insurance Company

When you live in Nashville, you are no stranger to water. It’s not unusual to find yourself in a saturation situation between the Cumberland River and countless lakes, streams, and ponds. Fortunately, even heavy rain doesn’t typically enter our homes. But we aren’t immune to “accidental” water damage caused by broken pipes or other household mishaps. 

Do you know how to file a homeowner insurance claim if you experience water intrusion outside of a natural disaster?

In today’s quick post, Nashville-based Rytech water damage restoration experts walk us through the steps.

Slow The Damage

Before you ever pick up the phone, your top priority is to stop the water at the source. For example, if you’ve had a water main break, turn off your home’s main water supply. This may be located inside a utility closet or toward the road underneath a metal grate. If you can’t figure out where the water is coming from, contact a plumber for immediate help. Keep in mind here that water damage is not your only concern. Make sure that you are fully aware of electrical outlets and devices, and steer clear of these to avoid electrical shock.

Call Your Agent

Once the immediate danger has passed, contact your insurance agent or your homeowner insurance’s 24/7 emergency hotline. Let them know the situation, and ask them to give you more information about your policy’s water damage coverage. Your insurance advisor will likely suggest taking photographs of each affected space. Do this as soon as possible, and make sure to document items damaged during the intrusion event. You can take your photos with your phone’s camera and compose a document or spreadsheet with an inventory of your personal belongings damaged. This might include guitars, clothing, computers, furniture, and prescription medication.

Understand Limitations

While all policies are different, most insurance companies only cover water damage caused by accidental or sudden events, such as an overhead water pipe bursting. Acts of God, including flooding caused by torrential rains, may not be covered – for this, you will need a flood insurance policy administered by FEMA. Your insurance is unlikely to pay for damage caused by negligent home maintenance. For example, if your bathroom pipes leak into a wall over the course of several months, your insurance company may deny the claim.

Dealing with water damage isn’t fun for anyone. Fortunately, with expedient service from a trusted and experienced disaster recovery firm, you can lessen the extent of the damage and get your house back to normal.

Water damage may quickly lead to mold, depending on the time of year. Nashville weather is mild to warm from spring through the end of fall, so the sooner you have an expert restoration service onsite, the less chance you’ll run of having significant mold growth.

Rytech Nashville is ready to help after your personal disaster. Our mold remediation and water damage experts in Nashville will take care of everything; all you have to do is call (615) 640-4417 for a 24-hour emergency response.
