1How Soon Should I see a Chiropractor?
You have up to 2 (two) weeks to visit your doctor after your accident. However we recommend you call and schedule your appointment right away. You might feel "fine" however you could still have injuries.
2My back feels ok but my arms/hands feel funny!
Because the nerves to the arms and hands exit the spine through the injured area of the neck, numbness and tingling are common. Even lower back pain can result directly from the trauma, or as a reaction to the loss of proper spinal curves.

There are many types of car accident injuries:

Neck Injuries
Displaced bone fragments in the spine
Herniated discs
Soft-tissue injuries

4What are some symptoms of being injured?
Back pain
Neck pain
Body stiffness
Chest pain
Panic attack symptoms
Blurred vision

Recovering after a car accident is about more than just dealing with car repairs and insurance claims. It’s also about treating any injuries and lingering pain that arise after the incident. Not all injuries are noticed right away, not all injuries are broken bones. Whiplash is one of the most common car accident injuries. Keep in mind that some ailments may not appear until days or weeks later. If you experience any pain in your neck, shoulders or back after a car accident, you should see a chiropractor.

After a car accident, a chiropractic adjustment might just be what you need to get on the road to recovery. Chiropractors are specifically trained to address whiplash, soft tissue injuries, spinal strains and other musculoskeletal damage. A gentle realignment of the spine that allows the body to heal itself is far preferred over masking the pain with medication. Pensacola Physical Medicine has the treatment rooms, staff and experience to get you back on your feet.
