When it comes to auto accident injuries, you may be surprised how sore you are even after a minor fender-bender. Or perhaps, you were in a serious crash and are pleased that your neck and back aren’t sore at all. Regardless, you should see a Largo chiropractor as soon as possible. In Florida, if you do not seek medical treatment within 14 days of the accident, you potentially forfeit all insurance payments. Injuries resulting from a car collision may be subtle, such as neck pain developing over a week afterwards. You don’t want to rely on drugs for the rest of your life in order to relieve pain that a chiropractor could have helped with only a few gentle adjustments.
Chiropractor Treats All of the Most Common Auto Accident Injuries:
- Whiplash/neck pain: Affecting up to 90% of people, whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries. During a collision, your body is suddenly pushed back against the seat, but your head will lag behind. The harsh movement not only can tear ligaments, but also upset discs of the cervical spine. A chiropractor can improve your range of motion and decrease the buildup of harmful scar tissue.
- Headache: After an auto accident injury, there are many reasons you may be experiencing a headache. They can be from nerve irritation in your neck or spine, muscle spasms, or a concussion. Chiropractic therapy has been proven to reduce headaches in patients after car collisions.
- Back pain: During a rear-end collision, the lumbar spine is quickly straightened and compressed; this injures ligaments and nerves of the spine. Besides pain, this can cause tissue damage, nerve injury, and inflammation. A Largo chiropractic doctor can use gentle adjustments and trigger point therapy to deliver pain relief.
If you are suffering from auto accident injuries, including but not limited to whiplash, back pain, headaches, fatigue, shoulder pain, blurred vision, jaw pain, or ringing in the ears, you should visit a chiropractor as soon as possible.
