If you are in an accident and receive injuries, chances are you will be transported to the local Largo hospital. There, they will likely treat your injuries, perform any necessary procedures, and then send you on your way with painkillers. While medical treatment is essential, simply relying on a general practitioner or hospital for treatment is a mistake. Chiropractic therapy goes beyond masking the symptoms and pain and gets to the root of the problem.
Common Car Accident Injuries
Whether you are riding passenger in a car or traveling on a motorcycle, being in a vehicle accident can lead to serious injury. Also, there are an unfortunately high number of accidents that occur every day in the Largo area and Tampa Bay as a whole. If you are involved in one, you face injuries such as:
- Bruises, cuts, scrapes
- Broken bones
- Sprains and tears
- Head trauma
- Soft tissue injury
- And more
These common accident injuries can cause a major disruption to your life in Largo, but treating the pain and source of the problem with chiropractic therapy is an effective, drug-free, surgery-free way to heal. In addition, many people prefer the holistic approach to health, and a chiropractor is a perfect option.
Chiropractic Therapy and a Walk-In Clinic for Accident Injuries
Florida law requires those involved in an accident to seek professional medical care like chiropractic therapy within 14 days of an accident in order to receive the full insurance benefits. This law, called the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) law, means that you need to act quickly after an incident. At times like these, you need options. Many chiropractors in the Largo area require you to schedule an appointment to see a doctor, and most are booked out weeks if not months in advance. At Coastal Chiropractic, our walk-in clinic allows clients just like you to receive the care they need the same day they visit. So, visit us without an appointment if you need medical treatment after an auto accident.
