High Tech Diagnostic Testing:
The doctors use objective, computerized diagnostic testing equipment to measure the amount and severity of your injuries. Our testing methods include manual muscle performance, dual inclinometer range of motion testing, and x-ray analysis. Because we use specialized testing equipment we are often the first and only doctors to diagnose the many hidden injuries resulting from auto and job accidents.

Tests Preferred by Attorneys and Auto Insurance Agents:
Attorneys prefer the diagnostic techniques we use in our office because they confirm the exact amount of injury. Attorneys know it is important to have well-documented, objective testing procedures to prove the existence of injuries.
Insurance agents prefer the highly specific diagnosis we provide, because it gives them an accurate record of the injuries and helps them track the progress of the injured patient throughout their treatment plan.

What should you do if you have been involved in an automobile or job related accident recently?
Whether you have pain or not you should make an appointment to have a comprehensive examination performed. We can determine the amount and severity of your injuries and let you know immediately if the future of your health is in danger.
Consultations typically last one to one-and-a-half hours.  

Who will pay for my health care?
If you have recently been involved in an auto accident, your auto insurance company, or the auto insurance company of the party that hit you, will pay for any medically necessary treatment. You are entitled to receive any health care treatment required to return you to pre-accident status. Job related injuries are covered through the State Board of Labor and Industries (L&I) provided by your employer. If you have any questions about insurance, please call our office manager Lorie, and she will happily answer any questions you may have.
