Getting into an accident is scary and overwhelming, but it is important to make sure you deal with your car accident injuries first and foremost. Even if it was only a minor collision, such as a fender bender, and you don’t see anything immediately wrong with you, you still should visit our Walk in Clinic in Clearwater as soon as possible. There are a couple reasons for this.
After you get into a car accident, regardless of its severity, your body is pumped with adrenalin and stress hormones that can delay the physical symptoms of damage. These hormones can alter your functioning and make you feel different than you will once you calm down completely. This is why some injuries take days, sometimes even weeks, to surface.
Treating Car Accident Injuries
Another reason to seek medical attention at a Clearwater chiropractic clinic immediately is because if you do have any car accident injuries that require medical attention and treatment, your insurance company won’t cover the costs of these expenses unless they are treated within two weeks. While you don’t have to see a chiropractor for it to be considered medical attention, there are a number of reasons why you should rather than going to, for example, the emergency room.
- You will be seen much quicker. Why wait hours on hours in the ER just to have a doctor throw some pharmaceutical drugs at you to mask the symptoms before sending you on your way? We offer a walk in clinic specifically for urgent care patients, such as those who have possibly sustained car accident injuries, to provide the residents of Clearwater with a fast, safe and effective means of medical treatment.
- We get to the root cause of your injury. We don’t just treat symptoms—we treat the problem at the root of its cause it to prevent it from happening again. If you don’t get to the source, it will keep happening. Additionally, if you don’t know where the root cause of the problem is, it is impossible to properly treat it to the fullest extent. That is what makes the treatment services offered at our Clearwater clinic so different and, therefore, so effective. All of our techniques and procedures and therapies are completely safe and gentle!
- We specialize in the areas where most car accident injuries occur. Whether it is whiplash in your neck, chronic headaches from the jerking motion experienced upon impact, a pulled muscle in your back, or something else, we have the skills and experience necessary to treat the back, neck, spine and central nervous system. We can properly check to make sure everything is functioning properly—from your joints and muscles to your nerves and bones.
- We offer postural screenings and X-rays. So you can see if anything is out of alignment and needs adjustment. We will also be able to take a whole body approach to see how it could influence other parts of your body and systems, and prevent them from doing so ahead of time.
