Why did the ER doctor say I was fine and I'm still in pain?

Emergency Departments are just that: to treat you in case of an emergency, life-threatening event. When they do imaging, such as X-Rays, the radiologists are looking for things that could be life-threatening. Most typically, they are looking for fractures that might have come from the accident that could be directly affecting your nervous system. It is very important for your health to have a properly functioning nervous system. In a nutshell, unless you are about to die and require surgical intervention, the emergency department is NOT equipped to help you. They will typically prescribe pain medications and muscle relaxers.

Chiropractors, on the other hand, diagnose and treat injuries to the structure and alignment of your spinal column and extremities. We are masters of soft tissue injuries and cut the time you are in pain drastically. Even if you are not feeling pain, injury to these soft tissues (discs, ligaments, and tendons) are best treated in a chiropractic office. At Liringis Chiropractic, we have an X-Ray unit here and rule out life-threatening emergencies before treatment. Unlike the ER, we won't make you wait hours and charge you for greatly overpriced care.

WHAT WE ARE DOING DIFFERENTLY

We have further enhanced our already strict cleaning and safety procedures:

Front Desk.  We are constantly sanitizing our hard surface areas and chairs after every patient coming through the doors

Check-In Area – Our team will check you in.  All you have to do is wait to be assigned to a table and lay down.  Our equipment is sanitized after each use.

Waiting Area – we have spread out the chairs in the office to maintain a social distance .  All chairs are sanitized after every patient.

Healing Area – We are sanitizing all tables and hard surface areas after every patient

Hand sanitizers are located throughout the office

Gloves are worn by all staff members

As we continue to respond to the ever-changing environment around COVID-19, the safety of our patients, staff and doctor is our highest priority.  As we navigate this situation, LCC is relying on guidance from national and local associations and healthcare organizations to direct our actions.  As a result, LCC is open and we remain committed to the well being of our patients.
