We all enjoy an occasional road trip or relaxing Sunday drive. But if you’ve ever been injured in a car accident, you understand that vehicles can also cause danger and pain.
Due to their immense size, car accidents are extremely dangerous, even at relatively low speeds. Although experts are constantly looking for ways to make cars safer, crashes remain one of the leading causes of accidental injury.
Following a crash, you might seek treatment from your general practitioner, but a car accident chiropractor can do much more toward treating neck pain, whiplash, and other types of injury. In fact, because chiropractic care naturally treats the root cause of your pain, you also experience far fewer side effects and more effective relief.
At Lakes Chiropractic, we have helped thousands of patients recover from auto accident injuries without resorting to pain medicine, surgery, or lengthy physical therapy sessions.
Car accident injuries can range from broken bones to PTSD and everything in between. At Lakes Chiropractic, we’ve spent years studying the effect that auto accidents have on our patients and have developed ways to treat everything from whiplash to soft tissue injuries.
Early diagnosis and treatment is key in preventing chronic pain, decreased range of motion and scar tissue formation from further complicating your life down the road. The most effective treatment plan should include; chiropractic adjustments, electric stimulation, ultrasound, spinal decompression, massage therapy, and rehabilitation. Our state-of-the-art office accommodates all of these medically necessary therapies.
It starts with an x-ray to take a look “under the hood” and see which areas of your body are not properly aligned or injured. Our doctors then develop a customized treatment plan that’s geared toward your specific injuries.
By realigning the joints, a car accident chiropractor can relieve pressure on nerves, muscles, and other soft tissues that cause discomfort and pain. Along with massage therapy, chiropractic care can also reduce inflammation and avoid scar tissue. It is vital to get good treatment from experienced doctors early on after your accident. Failure to do so can result in permanent soft tissue injury!
Our state-of-the-art office has had experience treating many car accident injuries:
In the days immediately following an auto accident, chiropractic care may seem completely unnecessary. You’re not in any pain and your car received only minor damage.
Adrenaline and shock can be very effective painkillers. It’s not uncommon for days or even weeks to go by before you begin to feel the painful after-effects of a car accident. Yet early intervention is the best way to treat accident injuries.
Once scar tissue has started to build up in an injured area, range of motion can become extremely limited–not to mention painful! And while a Tylenol might help you get through your day a little easier, it’s not going to actually promote healing.
Fortunately, Florida law requires all drivers to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage on their insurance policies, which helps to cover the cost of your medical bills after an accident–including chiropractic care.
However, you must seek medical treatment within 14 days of your accident in order to use your PIP benefits.
