Whiplash car accident injury – What Is It? What Should You Do?
If you have been in an accident you probably may still feel a little bit shocked. However, if you are like most people you may be concerned about long term injuries. Many are afraid that the pain won’t go away or that their injuries could cause permanent damage. Even what seems like a minor accident can be a lot more serious that it seems at first. When one automobile is stuck by another, thousands of pounds of force are exerted on the neck and spine. Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are thrown or “snapped” back and fourth quickly. The result can be severe damage to the ligaments, soft tissue, and discs of the neck and spine.
Whiplash also causes impingement, stretching, or irritation of the nerves and the spinal cord.
Whiplash victims in the Sunrise and Downtown Miami, FL area experience headaches, numbness, pins and needles in the face, chest, arms or hands, anxiety, neck pain, back pain, ear ringing, dizziness, insomnia, hearing loss and/or blurred vision.
Too many people who have been in a traumatic automobile accident do not receive care from a chiropractor. That is the reason why over half of the accident victims never completely recover from their injuries and may live on pain killers for years or endure repeated surgeries. Chiropractic care can make the difference between true recovery and healing or lingering pain and disability. The courts actually consider it a reasonable outcome for you to have to take several pain killers per day for life following an auto injury. Many people become addicted to dangerous pain killers after taking them only once or twice. Chiropractic care most often provides immediate relief even if you have herniated discs or torn ligaments.
Chiropractic is a proven safe, effective, natural choice
When the spine is out of alignment, nerves are impinged causing pain and inflammation. Chiropractic care is the only treatment that safely realigns the bones of the spine that have been misplaced during trauma. Unfortunately, chiropractic treatment is not yet available in emergency rooms and medical doctors are not trained to locate and correct spinal nerve stress. As a result, millions of accident victims leave the hospital with as much spinal nerve stress as they had when they entered. They may continue to suffer for months, years or even decades afterwards. This gentle chiropractic care helps restore nervous system function, helps heal sore muscles and damaged ligaments, and ensures rapid and complete recovery after an accident.
Insurance companies realize the many advantages of Chiropractic Care. This treatment is covered on all automobile insurance policies, whether you are a driver, a passenger, or a pedestrian… and regardless of who is at fault. Our clinic will assist you in dealing with insurance paper work and filling a claim with your insurance company.
