Auto accident chiropractor Orlando Florida
Living in Orlando Fl car accidents are a common occurrence due to construction, different driving styles from all over the country and world, and the constant changing of street names to confuse people. The injuries sustained from an accident can leave life long physical damage and even psychological scars like PTSD. Treatment can be a long process and you need to make sure your doctors know what they are doing.
Chiropractic care is the most common doctor seen for treatment of these injuries due to our extensive training in musculoskeletal injuries and should be your first step. Chiropractors are specially trained in treating spinal injuries such as whiplash, disc herniations, and sciatica. The pain and discomfort from these injuries, and even minor sprains and strains, can be debilitating.
With your first visit to our Orlando Fl chiropractor we will take an extensive history and examination followed up with conservative chiropractic care to decrease the pain and inflammation. Flexion/Extension x-rays are normally ordered to diagnose the extent of the whiplash injury and MRIs for any suspected disc pathology or tears.
Car Accident Injuries treated by chiropractors include:
- Disc Herniation
- Sprains and Strains
- Rotator Cuff Tears
- Carpal Tunnel
- Hip pain
If left untreated these conditions might heal up on their own, but most likely won't heal correctly and lead to scar tissue, deconditioning, and long term chronic pain that can last a lifetime. Florida requires you to see a doctor within 14 days following an auto accident and even if you have no symptoms you should as it is very common for many symptoms to take weeks, or even months afterwords to develop. Car accidents at just 5 miles an hour can lead to long term problems and can create even worse auto accident injuries then high speed collisions where the bumper crumbles and absorbs the damage.
So if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, first step is if you need to go to the hospital to do that first, and then see your local Orlando Chiropractor for your car accident injuries. We have a very good track record at our office for helping patients for their injuries.
