Car accident? Chiropractor near Crawfordville, FL discusses chiropractic. Do you have a sore neck or back after an auto accident? Most of us think our stiff neck or backaches will go away especially with rest, pain pills or ice. However, If you have auto insurance (PIP) in Florida, you have to be examined by a chiropractor or medical doctor within two weeks of your accident in order to access your personal injury protection insurance and receive treatment for your injuries.
Whiplash from a car accident is also called neck strain or neck sprain however an examining doctor will typically diagnose the injury as cervical sprain/strain or lumbar sprain or strain. Whiplash injury is along the full spine but typically concentrated on the neck and lower back at the discs, intervertebral joints (between the vertebrae), ligaments ( anterior and posterior longitudinal ligaments ), cervical muscles and even the nerve roots may be damaged.
- Chiropractors dedicate their lives to the believe that our bodies have a natural ability to heal themselves given proper spine align. This gentle, drug-less, non-surgical approach to healthcare is built on the fact that the body has an amazing, innate ability to heal itself; the chiropractic adjustment creates the right environment to facilitate this inner healing.
- Since the nervous system (nerves going thru the spine) control every cell, tissue, muscle and organ in your body, chiropractors specialize on the health of the spine being properly aligned from the atlas to the sacrum. If the spine shifts out of proper place (like an auto accident), the adjustments are used to bring the spine back in to alignment to remove nerve pressure allowing your body to begin the healing process.
