Q & A

What types of auto accident injuries require medical intervention?

It’s not just high-speed accidents that cause bodily damage. You can suffer injury even in a seemingly minor fender bender. 

 

If you’ve experienced any of the following injuries following a car wreck, seek care from the providers at Spinal Correction Centers:

 

  • Whiplash or other neck injuries
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Herniated spinal discs
  • Sprain / strain injury of the neck, back and/or arms, legs
  • Misalignments of the vertebrae

 

The providers at Spinal Correction Centers are experienced in identifying vertebral misalignments caused by an auto accident and helping guide your spine, soft tissues, and nerves back into a healthy space.

 

Even if you feel fine right after the auto accident, it’s good to get checked out. Symptoms often arise days or weeks later.

What are the symptoms of auto accident injuries?

Depending on the force and nature of your accident, you may have swelling, bruises, or broken bones. Other symptoms may be more subtle and include:

 

  • Headaches or migraines
  • Neck pain or reduced range of motion
  • Chest pain and back pain
  • Overall body stiffness, 
  • Poor sleep
  • Anxiety with driving
  • Numbness, Tingling, burning, pain in the arms, hands, legs and feet

 

An auto accident can generate force that causes microtears in the soft tissues or muscles in your spine. You may notice something feels off but can’t quite pinpoint what’s causing your lingering symptoms. 

Why should you seek chiropractic care after an auto accident injury?

The sooner you start structural correction at Spinal Correction Centers, the easier it is to alleviate symptoms and avoid permanent damage or dysfunction. Your provider also can refer you to other medical specialists you may need to help you heal.

 

Seeking immediate care following your accident also means you get the documentation you might need to receive compensation for your injuries. The staff at Spinal Correction Centers can guide you to reputable attorneys in the area who specialize in auto accident cases.

 

Also, your chiropractic care may be fully covered by insurance. Florida is a no-fault state, meaning you get coverage of reasonable medical expenses incurred when you receive treatment for injuries. Don’t skip care because you’re afraid of the expense.
