Car Crash Injury? Erase Your Pain with a Skilled Florida Chiropractor
One second you are just driving along. The next – boom!
Auto accidents are sudden, violent, and typically occur without any warning. That means your body is unprepared for the impact. The result?
Well, that depends on the nature of the impact. You probably know that car accidents can be incredibly dangerous. Sometimes the injuries are obvious. Bones break. Body parts get crushed or severed. People can become impaled on foreign objects. They can – and do – die.
In fact, here in Florida, a lot of people die in car crashes. Our state has frequently been named as one of the most dangerous places to drive, U.S. 1 has been found to be the deadliest highway in our country, and three other Florida highways have been in the top 5.
So it is understandable that this is what most people tend to think about when they imagine auto injuries. The people who die or, at the very least, end up strapped to a hospital bed.
Those injuries, however, are only part of the story. Even if you do not seem to be hurt after an accident, it is vital that you get examined as soon as possible. One of the best choices you can make is to reach out to Dr. Craig Singer at USA Health & Therapy as soon as possible.
Why see a Fort Lauderdale chiropractor?
Because here is what happens in a car crash:
Your limbs flail.
Your head snaps back and forth.
Your body gets slammed in different directions.
In other words, your bones and soft tissues take on the brunt of the force. These are the areas of the body that chiropractors specialize in. Because of this, they are often able to identify and treat issues that traditional Western doctors either miss entirely or may attempt to “fix” by masking the problem with pills.
Not Dr. Singer. He always takes the time to thoroughly examine each and every patient to make sure that no issues are missed.
This is particularly important after an auto accident because you want to ensure all related injuries and symptoms are accounted for on your insurance claim. At USA Health & Therapy, no stone will be left unturned. Dr. Singer will do his best to help you not only rid yourself of pain and fully recover, but also get your treatment covered by your insurer.
Common Auto Accident Injuries Fort Lauderdale Chiropractor Craig Singer Can Help With
According to the Insurance Research Council, nearly a third of all claimants injured in motor vehicle accidents seek treatment from Doctors of Chiropractic. When you understand the kinds of car crash pain and injuries we are able to help you with, that number makes a lot of sense:
Headaches. People often experience headaches after an auto accident, but often they do not associate it with the crash itself. This is a mistake. Headaches can be caused by all different kinds of things. If your body was violently jerked around during a crash, it can be one of the symptoms – even if the part of your body that suffered injury seems unrelated.
Neck pain. Do you know what the most common auto crash injury is? Whiplash. Your neck gets quickly jerked back and forth, damaging muscles (and potentially more) in your neck, shoulders, and upper back.
Low back pain. Another part of the body that is commonly injured in car crashes is the lower back. When someone hits you, your torso will likely be flung into your seat belt, which can lead to pulled back muscles and spinal misalignment.
Muscle stiffness (or spasms). Sometimes you might not feel pain from your injury, but you find that you are experiencing stiff muscles that make it hard to move or intermittent spasms. These, too, can be related to pulling a muscle or spinal misalignment. Chiropractic can help.
Numbness and tingling. Similar to muscle stiffness and spasms, you will not experience pain, but rather a lack of feeling at all in some places or a strange tingling sensation. Over time this can lead to more serious issues if not correctly addressed by a knowledgeable chiropractor.
Other issues that can be caused by an auto accident injury include difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, irritability, and memory loss.
How Dr. Singer Can Help You Recover from Your South Florida Car Accident Injury
At USA Health & Therapy, we use a holistic approach to healing and always strives to treat the whole person rather than focusing on individual issues.
Instead of jumping to prescribe you medication or recommending surgery, Dr. Singer will perform an extensive exam and develop an individual treatment plan utilizing hands-on care that may involve physical therapy, any of a variety of chiropractic techniques, and even nutritional recommendations.
Your plan may include:
Massage Therapy/Sports Massage
Often, people come here skeptical of chiropractic care in general. Or they are convinced that nothing can help them because they have already tried other types of treatment.
We make them believers by relieving and even eliminating pain that others could not. And if Dr. Singer is not able to help with your specific issue, he will refer you to a doctor or facility that can.
