When you’re involved in a car accident, adrenaline and emotions often run high which can make it easy to overlook the symptoms of an injury initially. This commonly results in people leaving the scene of an accident thinking they do not need any medical attention when the opposite may be true.
Some injuries like broken bones, lacerations, or airbag burns are easy to spot and are treated right away. There are others, however, like herniated discs or whiplash that are not always immediately apparent.
After you’ve been involved in an accident, you should seek out medical attention even if you don’t think you’ve sustained injuries as symptoms sometimes are not immediately noticeable.
When to Contact a Chiropractor?
You shouldn’t wait to contact a chiropractor after an accident. Pain after the incident is a good sign that you’ve suffered an injury and need chiropractic attention. Aches and pains in the neck, shoulders, arms, and back are among the most common injuries we see in car accident victims. More serious symptoms like stiffness, headaches, dizziness or blurred vision may require hospital attention.
Another reason to seek out a chiropractor after a crash is so that you can get your injuries documented as soon as possible. In Florida, you only have 14 days to document your auto accident injuries in order to be eligible for personal injury protection insurance benefits.
Contacting Elite Health and Wellness for a consultation is a great way to determine the extent of your injuries. Our expert staff can complete an examination and request any necessary tests required to give the best care possible.
