An auto injury refers to any accident relating to your vehicle or those around you. Because of the speed at which you’re going, your spine may get misaligned, causing severe repercussions and muscle problems with any neighboring areas of your body.
Some of the most common auto injuries include:
Remember that because of the adrenaline rush you get during and right after the accident, you might not feel any immediate discomfort or pain. Don’t assume you aren’t injured.
To ensure that your injuries are correctly identified, Dr. Walker will perform a general assessment. This includes:
Florida law requires that you consult a doctor or chiropractor within 14 days of the accident to receive benefits from the state. If that’s not enough of a catalyst, think about the long-term effects of a potentially very severe injury.
Your chiropractor can help you get rid of your auto-injury symptoms through:
Chiropractic treatment corrects acute misalignments in your spine, neck, and other parts of the body through adjustments and spinal decompression.
It also reduces neurological symptoms, relieves muscular strain, and gives your spinal area the nutrients it needs for a speedy recovery.
Auto injury can cause very serious misalignments that only a professional with chiropractic training can identify and treat.
Don’t wait until symptoms get worse to seek professional help. No one wants to be in a car accident, but even fewer people want to suffer from the pain it has caused in the long term. Call or use the online tool to book an appointment at Auto Injury Specialists of Florida today.
