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.



It can’t be said enough – Your health and the
health of my employees are my priority, and
every decision I make is through that lens. I
want to make sure the approach I’m taking to
reopen my clinic is thoughtful, and that I’ve
created a clinic environment that is safe for
everyone. Some of the updates I have made to my clinic
to help keep everyone healthy are:

  1. Conduct health screenings of all employees
    and patients (including use of Infrared No
    Touch Forehead Thermometer).
  2. Provide disposable face covering masks
    (3 layers) to all employees and patients.
  3. Provide disposable shoe covers for all
    employees and patients.
  4. Gloves are worn by all staff members.
  5. Taking steps to allow for social distancing of six feet or more including limiting number of patients in the clinic.
  6. Increasing cleaning and sanitization of office and equipment. Equipment will be sanitized after each use.
  7. Constantly sanitizing our hard surface areas and chairs after every patient coming through the doors.
  8. Hand sanitizers will be located throughout the office.
  9. Altering hours of operation to give employees time to accomplish cleaning and sanitizing.
