Never take an auto accident lightly. Even a minor "fender bender" can leave you or a loved one with serious, non-apparent injuries. For example, whiplash is a non-obvious injury that can cause permanent damage or disability. Promptly seeing our chiropractor at North Port Chiropractic after an auto accident can help you avoid these risks. You're welcome to schedule an appointment right away with Dr. Daniel Rubin if you live in North Port, Port Charlotte, or West Village, FL.
Common Types of Auto Accident Injuries
Drivers and passengers may suffer mild to serve injuries from vehicular accidents. These injuries include the following list of common injuries treated with chiropractic care:
- Whiplash (neck strain)
- Herniated discs
- Spinal joint dislocation (misalignment)
- Shoulder and knee injuries
- Spinal cord compression from a back injury
- Muscle strains and other soft tissue trauma
- Headaches or migraines from a concussion
When to Get Chiropractic Care after a Car Crash
The best time to talk to a chiropractor in North Port, Port Charlotte, or West Village, FL, is immediately following the accident, after receiving any necessary urgent medical care, or if you experience any of these symptoms:
- Back or neck pain
- Joint or soft tissue swelling
- Body aches, pain, or muscle spasms
- Stiffness or limited mobility
- Shoulder, arm, leg, or knee pain
- Numbness, tingling, or weakness
These are signs of injury that can cause complications the longer they go without treatment. In fact, you should still consider chiropractic care even if you feel okay.
Treatment from an Auto Accident Chiropractor in Florida
Medications temporarily treat pain and inflammation, but do not directly address the source of your auto injury symptoms. Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive and drug-free way to relieve pain, soreness, and stiffness. It is an effective option for whiplash, vertebral subluxations, nerve compression, and other accident-related complaints.
Dr. Daniel Rubin has years of expertise in realigning the spine using various spinal adjustment techniques. Adjustments also eliminate nerve interference, restore musculoskeletal balance, unlock restricted joints, and increase mobility. He can also adjust the shoulders, knees, and other joints to bring them back into alignment.
Patients with a herniated disc may benefit from non-surgical spinal decompression. This treatment gently stretches the spine, allowing damaged spinal discs to slip back into position. Spinal decompression also increases the flow of nutrient-rich fluid to the spine, allowing it to heal.
Your personalized wellness plan may also include massage therapy, myofascial release, and corrective exercise to restore soft tissue balance, strengthen the muscles, and increase flexibility.
