PROACTIVE STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM When someone is injured in an accident, whether it’s an auto, motorcycle, or bicycle accident, a slip and fall, or some other circumstance caused by another’s negligence, that person may be in shock. It may be difficult to think straight or ask the right questions. Without a doubt, it’s a time of confusion, pain and anger. Many times, a person may be too injured to do anything at the time of their injury other than seek medical attention. But often, that is not the case. Knowing what to do beforehand can help you protect your claim. Here are some simple tips on what to do if you are injured: Collisions involving moving vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, trucks • Photograph the scene where the collision occurred • If possible, photograph the damage on all vehicles, motorcycles, trucks or bicycles before they are moved • Provide a statement to the investigating officer explaining what occurred from your point of view • Ask for a copy of the other driver’s insurance card • Obtain a copy of the police report from • Know the coverage limits of your auto insurance policy including your UI/UIM coverage as well as any excess coverage you may have pursuant to an umbrella policy • Notify your auto insurance carrier right away that you have been involved in an accident • Do not agree to allow your motor vehicle, motorcycle, truck or bicycle to be salvaged by any insurance carrier until you have had a chance to examine the same and take photographs. If liability is in question, you may need the property damage information for your bodily injury case.

Make sure that if you are asked to sign a release for your property damage, it is limited to property damage only Slip and Falls • Photograph the rug, mat, spill, step, hole, obstacle or other item or circumstance that caused your fall • Report the fall to a person with authority and provide your own written account - do not sign their written account • Ask for a copy of the incident report before you leave the scene • Ask for the name of the company’s insurance carrier and request that a claim for your medical expenses be opened pursuant to their med-pay coverage • If the fall occurs at someone else’s home, ask for a copy of their homeowner’s insurance policy and/or the name of their homeowner’s insurance carrier For all situations: • If requested, provide a tape recorded statement to your insurance company only – do not provide a tape recorded statement to anyone else’s insurance company or an investigator • Seek immediate medical attention – do not wait and delay treatment • Explain how you were injured to the attending physician • Follow all of your doctor’s orders and keep a copy of all medical visits, prescriptions and records pertaining to your injury • Know your health insurance coverage and keep track of your co-pays and expenses

When we are experiencing mental or emotional tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances, we are stressed. According to The American Institute of Stress, In 1936, Hans Selye coined the term "stress" that we use today. He conducted numerous experiments on laboratory animals that concluded and demonstrated "persistent stress could cause these animals to develop various diseases similar to those seen in humans, such as stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, stomach ulcers, enlarged adrenals, and kidney disease." What Does Stress Feel Like? The physical effects of stress may often feel like prolonged headaches, neck pain, muscle fatigue, or joint stiffness. Can Stress Cause Chronic Pain? Yes. Somatic Psychologist, Susanne Babbel Ph.D., M. F. T. In her blog: The Connections Between Emotional Stress, Trauma and Physical Pain, says, "Chronic pain is defined as prolonged physical pain that lasts longer than the natural healing process allows. During a traumatic event the body goes into survival mode. If the body remains in survival mode, stress hormones (Cortisol)


are constantly released. This constant release of stress hormone can reduce the body's immune system ability to heal and begin the manifestation of physical symptoms due to constant distress on the body." How Can I Stop Chronic Pain from Stress Before It Starts? Receiving frequent therapeutic massage sessions allows each client to develop a strong, client centered relationship with our staff. We are able to customize each experience and provide the quality of care that is unique to each client. Frequent therapeutic massage sessions can also help condition the body to relax (reduce prolonged Cortisol), which may help to keep pain (physical symptoms) reduced. Client Review: "This was a great experience! This was my first time getting a massage and my massage professional was very knowledgeable and helped me with some muscle soreness." Sean H, January 2017 What Services Are Offered? Our stress & pain management services are noninvasive and nonsurgical with no medication side effects or dependency.

Actualize Your Goals Successful people visualize themselves as empowered. They have discovered the formula for greatness, consciously and unconsciously. They believe in their own worth. They see Carol Juergensen Sheets themselves as living the life they were born to live before it occurs. Do you visualize yourself as a success? Did you know that you can accomplish anything if you envision it and then follow through? If you think it, you can manifest it. If you want it, you must feed the thoughts. Are there things in your life that you would like to accomplish or achieve, yet you have self doubt? Do you have difficulty believing in yourself? Know that you have every asset you need to make your dreams a reality. This world wants you to be happy, selffulfilled, and creating prosperity for yourself and others. In this column, we will be addressing the needed mental attitude. If I told you that you were absolutely capable of doing anything that you put your mind to…would the voice of self-doubt speak louder? Here’s a plan to quiet that voice. Find a secluded place and write down 50 of your lifetime dreams. Do it as fast as you can and ignore any self-doubt. Did you imagine becoming a billionaire or owning a football team or acting on Broadway. Maybe you envisioned owning a company, flying a plane, traveling around the world, or going to college. As you quietly listen to your dreams, train yourself to do the following: • WRITE IT. Write how you will play out your success— in all of its detail. Would

there be board meetings to attend, a church mission to pursue, a stage where you would perform, a book signing? Write anywhere from three paragraphs to 30 pages detailing your vision. • SEE IT. Visualize it. Close your eyes and spend one- to three minutes envisioning where you would be, what you would be doing, and who would be with you. Access at least three out of the five senses and imagine how it would feel, what it would look like, how it would sound, and even perhaps what success would taste or smell like. • SAY IT. Pick an affirmation for yourself and say it 30 times throughout your day. It can be simple as, “I was born for greatness”; “I will change the world in positive ways”; “I will make a difference in the lives of children”; “I will run a successful company” or “I will make more money than I can spend”. • BELIEVE IT. Know that you’re using your mind to create your reality. Your mind is the foundation for the dream. Faith in yourself is an essential element to create your dream. • ACHIEVE IT. Take small steps to actualize your goals and create a schedule where you 1 to 3 things a days to work on the things you want to achieve You need to feed yourself with positive thoughts, primarily because of the way you were socialized as a child. Your self-esteem took a hit as people started to expect you to confirm to the norm. Unfortunately, many children heard the word “no” more than they heard the word “yes”. Often, we are molded into the safer expectations in life. Parents want the best for their kids so they try to steer them toward what is safe. “You were not born to play it safe. You were born for greatness!” Feeding your mind powerful thoughts is a tool that activates your potential. You can accomplish anything, one thought at a time.
