Three Critical Considerations for Injury Cases

The following is an overview of some of the most critical factors to address in a personal injury case.


1. Comprehensive Injury Evaluation

A comprehensive injury evaluation is essential to determine the nature and severity of your injuries. Our clinic director Mark Shelley, DC DACNB has over 30 years of experience treating accident related injuries. He is certified in chiropractic biophysics and is the only board certified Functional Neurologist in the Edmonds area. In addition to these exceptional qualifications, Dr. Shelley has well established referral relationships with many other specialists. He does not hesitate to enlist their services and frequently sends injured patients for medical evaluation and co-treatment. The goal of the initial injury evaluation is to make an accurate diagnosis of your condition.

The only way to be sure you get the right treatment is to first have the right diagnosis. One of the few things that can be worse than being injured is not having all of your injuries discovered and ending up with permanent pain and problems. You may know someone who had an accident or injury and was never quite the same after the incident. They experience pain and limitations to their activities that follow them for the rest of their life… which leads us to our next topic — injury treatment.


2. Safe, Effective and Narcotic Free Treatment

The goal of treatment should be to reduce your symptoms as quickly as possible and help you heal as completely as possible so you can regain your quality of life. The key to accomplishing these objectives is to match the most appropriate treatments to your injuries. Please see the following examples:


Type of Injury

  • Muscle Strain
  • Joint Sprain
  • Disc Herniation
  • Nerve Irritation/Inflammation
  • Mild Traumatic Brain Injury



  • Massage Therapy/Physical Rehabilitation
  • Adjustment/Mobilization
  • Non-surgical Spinal Decompression
  • Cold Laser/Anti-Inflammatory Supplements
  • Functional Neurology/Neuropsychology

We are privileged to have many patients say that they found relief at Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy when previous treatments had failed them. Although our primary focus is your health, we also understand providing accurate and complete documentation for your case is equally important.


3. Accurate and Complete Documentation

If you have been injured, we believe you have the right to receive the treatment that is necessary to regain your health. If, because of the accident, your life has been turned upside down and you miss time from work or are left with permanent injuries, we believe you have the right to proper compensation. Any expert in personal injury will tell you that much of the strength of your case rests on the quality of the medical documentation. The doctors and therapist you see must be able to substantiate your injuries and demonstrate the necessity and effectiveness of treatment. Documentation of any occupational, recreational or social limitations is also critical. If you do not fully recover and continue to experience residual pain and limitations, your provider(s) must be able to substantiate your condition. In addition to the documentation responsibilities of your healthcare providers, the administrative staff must consistently and effectively communicate with insurance companies and attorneys.

At Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy our policy is to routinely (approximately every 30 days) re-examine our patients and provide detailed reports to the appropriate parties. At the conclusion of your case, a comprehensive report that details your prognosis, limitations and future treatment needs can be provided. In the rare instance that expert testimony is needed, Dr. Shelley is qualified to assist you. We are sorry that you have been involved in an accident or been injured. Rest assured that we will use all of our talents and resources to help relieve your pain and get you back to living the quality life you deserve. We will also do everything we can to reduce the administrative hassles and provide expert documentation to protect you. Call us today to find relief and results that last!

"The treatment I got at Olympic is more thorough than any other office I’ve been to."

“After my automobile accident, I had pain in my shoulders, mid back, and low back. It made it hard to get in and out of my truck. Now my pain is reduced by over 60%. I can move again! The treatment I got at Olympic is more thorough than any other office I’ve been to. They have a more complete treatment approach and more advanced therapies. The staff is phenomenal and friendly. This place is awesome!”

"I never could have done it without Dr. Shelley and his team."

“I was in two automobile accidents in 2014. My main symptoms were shoulder, neck, lower back and hip pain. Sometimes the pain was so sharp and intense I couldn’t get out of bed. I felt hopeless.  My life consisted of pain and depression to the point where I could no longer sleep.”

“Luckily, I found an advertisement about Dr. Shelley and decompression therapy in Seattle Times. I knew the minute I walked into the office that this was where I wanted to be. I rode three different buses and it took me over 2 hours just to get to Olympic Spine. My life has changed drastically for the better. It is wonderful to be able to get a decent night’s sleep, wake with minimal pain, and be able to function normally! I never could have done it without Dr. Shelley and his team. They are all medical miracle workers! Thank you all for your positive support!”
