Do I Need a Chiropractor After a Car Accident?

If you have recently been involved in a car accident it is important to seek medical attention from an experienced chiropractor as soon as possible, even if you feel you haven’t sustained any serious injuries. There is an abundance of injuries that can, and often do, happen to our bodies during car collisions, and sometimes the symptoms are not immediate. It can take weeks, even months for symptoms to show up. If damaged ligaments and muscles are not rehabilitated properly, scar tissue can form and serious problems may occur. In Florida, you only have 14 days after an accident to see a chiropractor or medical provider for auto insurance coverage. Dr. Rogers has treated thousands of patients in car accidents. If he does not find any damage, he will tell you right away.

Even minor fender benders can jerk your spine out of alignment, which can cause chronic health problems. If you’ve been in an accident in the Largo, Seminole, or Clearwater area, call our Chiropractor Clinic so our experts can help restore your body from the trauma. In addition to this, according to the recent PIP (Personal Injury Protection) law, if you want to receive any benefits from your insurance company you must seek medical attention within 14 days of the accident.

I was just in a car accident, but I feel fine.

Schedule an appointment with a car accident chiropractor specialist in Largo, Seminole, or Clearwater! Even if you’re not in immediate pain, you can still have an injury from a collision. There can be a delayed onset of pain, even weeks after the accident. When a body is jerked around, the back and neck can be knocked out of alignment. Dr. Marc Rogers uses spinal and postural screenings to diagnosis your injury. He then uses massage therapy and herniated disc therapy to reduce symptoms and relieve pain.

If I went to the emergency room, do I still need a car accident chiropractor?

Even if you were seen by an emergency room physician, you can still benefit from a spinal readjustment. Unlike hospitals that only provide urgent care for life-threatening and vital conditions, we specialize in the detection and treatment of auto accident injuries. We offer follow up treatment and symptom relief for all related injuries. Whiplash and/or herniated discs are common after collisions, which can cause severe back and neck pain. It’s unnecessary to suffer and go untreated; as your car accident chiropractor Dr. Marc Rogers can provide symptom relief without the use of medication. We often know when there is an injury before the symptoms even start showing! If you only go to a regular hospital for your pain, they’re likely to prescribe you medication. But pills don’t remedy soft tissue damage or correct alignment issues.
