Frequently Asked Questions about Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries
If you think you may have suffered an auto accident injury such as whiplash, Comprehensive Health Care Systems in West Palm Beach, FL, is one of the first places you should call. Your chiropractor is trained to recognize head and neck injuries that often go untreated too long, and can help you get help with your auto accident injury in ways many other professionals cannot.
Auto accident injury is something we see nearly every day. Here are the answers to our patients' frequently asked questions.
Why is chiropractic care so important after an auto accident injury?
Experts tell us that 15.5 million Americans fail to get timely treatment for whiplash, and as a result, they have chronic neck pain and are at risk for a constellation of other disabilities including headaches, blurred vision, shoulder pain, arm pain, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), sleep problems, and even late whiplash syndrome. Millions of people fail to get the timely treatment that can prevent life-altering complications of strain and sprain to the neck in a car crash. Your chiropractor has a collection of treatment methodologies and experience to alleviate your pain.
But I don't feel that bad. Do I really need to come in to see a chiropractor?
The pain of whiplash often doesn't set in for 72 hours or more after an auto accident injury. After all, you have a lot of things on your mind when you crash your car or someone crashes into you. You are thinking about what you tell the Florida Highway Patrol. You are thinking about whether your insurance will pay your claim and cover you against any claims from the other driver. You are thinking about how you will pick up the kids from school and get to and from work and how long it will take to get your car repaired. But a visit to the chiropractor has to be near the top of your to-do list if you want to avoid even worse pain, expense, and inconvenience in the future.
