Attorney & Insurer Information

At Sheely Chiropractic Clinic, we strive to support Attorneys and Insurers in their efforts to protect our patient's interests.

New patients at the Sheely Chiropractic Clinic are assessed for current condition status through the use of orthopedic and neurological testing. Understanding the meaning of the tests is helpful for patients, insurance companies, paralegals, attorneys, and other doctors not familiar with neuro-musculo-skeletal examinations. Click below for a detailed description of Orthopedic and Neurological Tests and Explanations that are used in Personal Injury Reports for attorneys and insurance companies.

Orthopedic and Neurological Tests and Explanations

In an effort to support local attorneys in their defense of low-velocity impact accident victims, I have prepared a report based on my experience of over 25 years and working with over 400 personal injury patients and over 100 attorneys entitled, "7 Deadly Mistakes Attorneys Make When Negotiating Low Velocity Impact Settlements." You will greatly benefit from the information in this free report. Click below for this free report.

In evaluating a patient's condition at Sheely Chiropractic Clinic, an evaluation for Temporary Total Disability, Permanent Impairment, or Permanent Disability is often requested and/or appropriate. Click below for an explanation of the basis on which requests for opinions are calculated in this health care facility.

...how does the Sheely Chiropractic Clinic put them together?

In our practice, we use validated patient questionnaires as a principal method of measuring outcomes for patients with back pain (Revised Oswestry and/or Roland-Morris) and neck pain (Neck Pain Disability Index). Click below for a brief discussion of the scientific acceptance and now widespread use of this type of outcome measure. It is given because traditionally practitioner measurements (e.g. range of motion measured by straight leg raise, x-ray, etc. and strength measures) have been thought more objective and valid than patient-centered survey instruments (questionnaires).
