Patient Care

We do accept personal injury case with a signed lien from the attorney. For the attorney we provide a full examination and testing to document any diagnosis made.  The more documentation you have, the less the insurance company can discount your case. For the patient we provide DNFT, Directional Non-Force Technique chiropractic. DNFT is the original low force technique that is the basis for all the others.  This is especially important for patients with acute problems and for those fearful of the bone crunching usually associated with chiropractic. Unlike most techniques there is no popping and cracking.  Dr. Gallagher has studied DNFT for 30 years and his research is now taught as part of the technique at seminars worldwide.

File Review

Most cases involve notes from several doctors, emergency room and testing centers. While most will contain everything you need to make a good case it is rarely presented in a format that they insurance company’s program will digest. It is not enough to have a medical professional translate the notes for you, it is imperative though that the notes be translated into billing and diagnostic codes. When a doctor only lists four diagnoses the insurance company only has to pay for those four.   Our service will find the other diagnoses that are documented in the notes but not listed in the codes.  When completed your case will be presented with 10 to 20 diagnosis codes each of which must be addressed by the insurance company.

AMA Whole Person Impairment Rating

We can provide a Whole Person Impairment Rating per the AMA Guides at a fraction of the cost most doctors charge. This rating will provide you with a number that carries the greatest weight in the courts. For the insurance company to contest it, they would have to put the AMA Guides on trial.
CRMA:  Computerized Radiographic Mensuration analysis provides precise measurements that will document ligament laxity; 728.4. These measurement will prove ligament damage that will also establish a 23-28% Whole Person Impairment Rating.

Demand Letter Support

Of the 43 points insurance companies consider when deciding on a settlement value most demand letters contain only 9. That means that 80% of what is available to you and your client is being left on the table. In the rare case that this does not provide a satisfactory settlement offer we will provide you with a rebuttal letter that will make your life much easier.

CRMA

Computerized Radiographic Mensuration Analysis measures the angulation and translation in the cervical and lumbar spine on flexion/extension studies. The AMA Guides establish abnormal limits of 11 degrees angulation and 3.5mm of translation (the thickness of two quarters. When either of these can be measured between vertebra on flexion/extension views they are considered ratable by the AMA Guides and receive a Whole Person Impairment Rating of 23 to 28%. Even when there is excessive motion that does not exceed the limits established by the AMA Guides there is often enough motion to establish sub failure of a ligament that will have a rating of 8-10%.
