Visiting a chiropractor as part of a treatment programme to address a musculoskeletal disorder should be a positive experience that relieves you of the pain and discomfort you were experiencing, but it may result in chiropractor accident counselling being required.
You may need counselling as a result of the chiropractor’s intervention as your symptoms have worsened or because a secondary injury has occurred. The most common reason for a person to attend a chiropractor is to address issues relating to the back and neck. These are parts of the body that are not only crucial to our ability to function but are also extremely vulnerable to trauma and pain. Most chiropractors are well-trained, professional medical practitioners who are extremely skilled in their work, although there are instances when accidents or incorrect procedures do occur that leave individuals with long-standing physical and emotional issues.
If you have received medical advice that suggests that you require the intervention of a counsellor; Accident Advice Helpline could be in a position to assist you. The availability of skilled and experienced counsellors within the NHS is severely compromised by the notoriously long waiting list for such services. Given that counselling is required for a current, distressing issue, being on a waiting list is not the ideal treatment solution and can exacerbate symptoms of anxiety and distress, allowing the psychological problems associated with your injury to take hold and become an even larger long-term problem.
The alternative to being added to a waiting list is to seek counselling services from a private practice. Unlike the NHS, there will be a cost implication to treatment and this can be very expensive. Whereas Accident Advice Helpline cannot directly fund your counselling sessions, we can play a very important role in ensuring that your counselling costs are recovered and paid back to you. By starting a personal injury compensation claim, our in-house legal experts will use their vast experience in reclaiming chiropractor accident counselling costs and any other financial compensation that might be appropriate. All of the work of Accident Advice Helpline is on a ‘no win, no fee*’ basis and therefore has no upfront costs.
Contacting Accident Advice Helpline is free and you can call 24 hours a day. Simply call 0800 689 0500 from your land line or from a mobile call 0333 500 0993. To contact one of our skilled and personable representatives by SMS message, simply text “Claim365” to 88010. Once you have done that, you will receive a call back to discuss the details of your claim. Having access to counselling when you need it most is crucial to your long-term recovery and our service aims to ensure that you receive the treatment you deserve, and at no financial cost to you, the person on the receiving end of someone else’s negligent or misjudged treatment.
