Auto Accident Injury FAQs

When you’re injured in an auto accident, there are always questions that need to be answered. Between dealing with the legal aspects of the accident and your medical issues, you might find yourself overwhelmed and unsure what to do. Mitchell E. Kaplan, Chiropractic Physician has been sharing the benefits of chiropractic care with residents of Melbourne, FL, for many years. Many of our patients visit us for the first time looking for auto accident injury treatment. Following are the answers to several questions our chiropractor frequently receives regarding auto accident injury treatment.

.

What Are the Most Common Auto Accident Injuries?

Soft tissue injuries are the most common, including things like bruising and whiplash. Neck and back injuries are also very common. These injuries can include things like herniated discs and result in severe pain and limited mobility. Concussions are another common result of an auto accident. While other injuries are possible, these are the ones our chiropractor sees the most frequently.

Will I Know If I’m Injured Right Away?

While some injuries are obvious immediately, others might not show up for a little while. This could be for several reasons. Sometimes you will be in shock after the accident, or the adrenaline in your system will mask the pain. You will start to feel the injury once these things fade. Other injuries just won’t show up immediately and you’ll start feeling pain a few days later. This is why it is important to get checked for injuries even if you think you aren’t hurt. If you don’t get checked and there are serious injuries, they might end up getting even worse.

What Can a Chiropractor Do for My Injuries?

Seeing a chiropractor can be a great way to find pain relief and reduce the chances of needing medication or surgery. When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the type, location, and severity of your injuries. Chiropractic adjustments will restore your body’s natural alignment. Over time, these adjustments will relieve your pain, restore your range of motion, and improve your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Massage therapy can help relax your injured muscles, promoting blood flow and faster healing. Trigger point therapy is often used to reduce the pain associated with whiplash. Our chiropractor can look at your injuries and help you determine a plan that will lead to a healthy recovery.
