Injured in an Auto Accident?

Have you been in a car or other motor vehicle crash or collision? Are you suffering from pain because of your injury? You don’t have to suffer. Learn how chiropractic can help you recover from auto injuries.

Injuries from Auto Accidents are a common source of chronic, life-long pain. Getting the proper treatment early after your crash can be very important in recovering quickly.

Many times, pain from an Auto Accident can originate from the spine and muscles surrounding the spine, which is why chiropractic can be beneficial.  Chiropractic care can help treat the underlying trauma that you experienced and help your body heal.

Injuries suffered from an auto accident can take some time to become apparent, weeks or even months. Many symptoms are caused by the strain and sudden force put on and into the body by the impact of the crash, but they are initially masked by other injuries or general pain and inflammation. These symptoms can include:

  • Headaches

  • Jaw Pain

  • Neck Pain

  • Shoulder and Mid Back Pain

  • Low Back and Hip Pain

  • Sciatica

  • Disc Bulge or Disc Herniation

  • Arm, Shoulder, Wrist, Elbow, Knee, Ankle, and/or Leg Pain

  • Numbness and Tingling

  • Weakness

  • Dizziness

  • And More!

It is important to seek evaluation and treatment within 14 days following an auto accident, even if you think you may not be hurt. This time frame is important not only for early detection of injuries, but also to make sure you get the most out of your insurance coverage, as recent law changes have been made that most drivers are not aware of, and may affect your ability to receive medical coverage after an accident. 

Symptoms may take days, weeks, or even months to fully come to the surface.  The earlier these injuries are detected and treated, the better you will feel in the long run, and the more effective your care will be.   Chiropractors such as Dr. Phil Afghani in Port Orange, FL can treat many types of pain associated with collisions, without resorting to prescription drugs or surgery.
