Learn more about how we diagnose and treat injuries including neck pain and back pain in our office.
Common Car Crash Injuries
The most common injuries we see among patients are headaches, herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, whiplash, and tight or sore muscles. These are the result of the sudden jarring movement of the auto accident. When your body is moved in an unexpected way at a high speed, this creates disruption throughout the musculoskeletal system. Your spine may become misaligned leading to sprains, strains, and even bulging or herniated discs. The muscles along your neck and back may become injured leading to pain, inflammation, and spasms.
When to Seek Treatment
You want to visit our office as soon as possible following your car accident. Remember, Florida law requires you to consult a doctor or chiropractor within 14 days of the date of the accident to be eligible to receive up to $10,000 in PIP benefits and lost wages. This is the best route to take if you have auto insurance coverage benefits you plan to use for treatment. We will provide a diagnostic exam immediately to determine if you have any auto accident injuries within the musculoskeletal system. These types of injuries are often delayed in their symptoms. For example, if you have whiplash you may not know it for days or even weeks after you have been injured. That is because a musculoskeletal injury involves inflammation that leads to swelling and pain, which takes time to build up. We can detect the most common auto accident injuries and begin treatment ASAP.
How Chiropractors Treat Auto Accident Injuries
We use a holistic approach to the treatment of auto injuries. This includes treating your muscle, nerve, joint, or spinal injuries using chiropractic adjustments. These chiropractic methods realign your body, which helps to relieve pressure and calm inflammation.
This holistic approach provides injury treatment, as well as pain relief, within the same chiropractic consultations. We will also set you up with corrective exercises and lifestyle advice to help minimize your healing time and prevent the likelihood of the injury reoccurring.
