4 Things to Know After An Auto Accident

woman with neck pain after a car accidentAn injury can occur even if you are travelling at slow rates of speed. In fact, a whiplash injury can occur with as little as 5MPH of impact. Depending on the force of the crash, you can experience problems including neck and back pain, radiating pain or numbness into your arms to fingers, or thighs to toes, herniated discs, stretched ligaments, pulled tendons, joint pain and more.

Taking pain medicine won’t help heal the actual injury, but will offer relief. Ultimately, you want to visit a doctor (like us!) who can help get to the root cause of your pain and encourage naturally healing from within.

Chiropractic care offers focused, gentle, and unique results for every individual. In fact, we’ll craft a custom care plan for you that’s exactly what your body needs.

In Florida, you have 14 days to be evaluated after an accident by a medical professional to ensure your injuries are covered by insurance. We always recommend patients get checked as soon as possible after being in a car crash even if they feel fine. That’s because pain is often the last symptom to show, and things can still be disrupted if no pain is present. Some people do not have symptoms until weeks or months after an accident.
