Dr. Ziegler says...

Dr. Ziegler has treated hundreds, if not thousands of whiplash patients over his 18 year career at Ziegler Chiropractic Clinic. What makes his practice unique is that he personally supervises all patient treatments. Your case is given the utmost attention.

The certification in Spinal Trauma and Whiplash has proven invaluable to Dr. Ziegler in his treatment of whiplash related injuries. The course not only showed physiological aspects of the injuries, but also helped manage patient's progress and protocol. This course work, combined with many years of working within the medico legal system, has enabled Dr. Ziegler to treat and manage patient's motor vehicle accident cases. Dr. Ziegler helps to build an auto accident case for the patient from the moment they start treatments.

Dr. Ziegler also has helped a major corporation prevent workman's compensation cases by treating the employees successfully, and counseling them on accident prevention.

Dr. Ziegler says...

Dr. Ziegler treated whiplash and workman's compensation patients under the supervision of Dr. Doug Ziegler, from 1996 to 2001. Dr. Doug's expertise of treating many patients with these injuries proved invaluable to Dr. Dean. The clinic was then bought out to Dr. Dean in 2001.

Dr. Dan Murphy is considered one of the nation's leading experts in whiplash; he was the main instructor for the Certification in Spinal Trauma and Whiplash.

Dr. Ziegler applies his experience in whiplash and workman's compensation to his patients. Dr. Ziegler has a low volume practice, devoting his time and attention to each and every patient. His administration of soft tissue mobilization ensures that the patient is treated for their condition specifically.

Dr. Ziegler supervises the custom rehabilitation program, to make sure the outcomes and goals of the therapy are reached. Many chiropractic offices nationwide are embracing rehabilitation programs as a means to achieve patient's goals and outcomes.
