Public Transportation Injury? Why You Should See a Florida Chiropractor

Public Transportation Injury? Why You Should See a Florida Chiropractor

Have you been injured in a public transportation accident? Are you unsure if what you are experiencing is due to the accident?

Below, we’re going to detail the most common types of public transportation injuries and how chiropractic treatment can relieve your symptoms.

Common Public Transportation Injuries

A public transportation accident can involve a taxi, bus, subway, cable car, train, or airplane. Usually an accident involves many people, but you may have been the only one riding at the time and therefore the only one injured. As with any other vehicle accident, it’s smart to take photos of the scene when the accident occurs. Photos of your injuries plus photos of the damage will help you protect your rights.

Along those lines, it’s important to seek medical care immediately if you plan to file a claim. A chiropractic visit can serve as proof of your sustained injuries. The most common injuries experienced by passengers include the following examples:

Back Pain

Sudden collisions can jar the muscles and tendons in the middle and lower back. The spine can be easily thrown out of alignment in an accident.

Chest Injury

Due to the sudden shift in body position, your chest may take the brunt of the impact as you shove forward. This can cause bruising, broken ribs, or damage to your internal organs.

Cuts and Scrapes

Due to flying objects, any part of your body may be lacerated, punctured, or bruised by items like books, pens, phones, purses, eyeglasses, and vehicle parts.

Head Injury

The sudden stop can cause concussions or serious brain injury. Your head may also be injured by cuts and scrapes.

Injuries to Extremities

Your arms and legs may be thrown about in an accident. They could absorb a lot of the shock and experience significant injury. Broken bones, deep bruising, sprains and lacerations are possible.

Soft Tissue Injuries

Tendons, ligaments, and muscles contribute to soft tissue injuries. These most often take the form of whiplash, an injury to the neck and surrounding area. A sudden forward movement can injure the ligaments in the neck and back.

Why Seek Chiropractic Treatment for Public Transportation Injuries?

Not all injuries show up immediately after an accident. Especially with soft tissue injuries, you may not notice them until weeks afterward. That’s why, regardless of how you feel, it’s important to seek medical help. A trained doctor will be able to detect problems that you might not notice on your own until they get worse.

For example, some injuries can cause long-lasting pain and scar tissue. If scar tissue builds up, your range of motion can be limited, which will affect your quality of life. By seeking chiropractic care after a public transportation accident, you can experience these benefits.

Here’s how chiropractic can help:

Physical therapy

Damaged muscles and strained ligaments and tendons need therapy to recover well if you hope to regain full use of them. Chiropractic care uses physical therapy to rehabilitate muscles, ligaments, and tendons. You’ll feel stronger and more flexible as well.

Drug-free pain relief

Fort Lauderdale Bus Accidents

Whiplash and back pain can be treated with spinal alignment, therapeutic massage, and electric muscle stimulation. All these treatments lack the side effects of painkillers. Many accident victims experience up to 80 percent less pain after a few weeks of chiropractic treatments.

Hydromassage

You may be feeling stiff and sore after your accident. Hydromassage and other forms of chiropractic care help rehabilitate stiff muscles before scar tissue has a chance to develop.
