Car accident Chiropractor Dr. Alvarez has treated hundreds of patients with pain after an car accident. Pain can occur from injuries to the neck and lower back that appear minor, but can lead to severe symptoms that cause long-term effects if not treated properly.

Pain Relief after a Car Accident in Kendall from:

Minor injuries can have long-term painful effects on an individual. Even in a slow-speed car accident, your body can suffer significant trauma. Common injuries seen in a car accident occur in the knees, wrists, ankles, and spine. Your knees and ankles are usually injured from being pushed into the steering column.  Your wrists can be damaged from impact happening while you hands are on the steering wheel. While your spine suffers the most damage with ligaments and disks getting the majority of the impact.

Whiplash occurs in the neck when an individual’s head suddenly snaps forward due to a sudden halting of movement while the body is held in place by the seat belt; this can happen in even the smallest of collisions. This sudden movement causes the spine to bend in an unnatural shape for just a moment, resulting in sudden trauma to the ligaments and spinal disks that can have painful and long term effects.

Symptoms of whiplash are: tension headaches, muscle cramps and tightening, sore spots, dizziness, and pain radiating down the shoulders and back. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms there is a problem that should be looked at by a professional.

Most people will go to the ER or an urgent care center right after an accident, but what about afterwards? That’s where our office can help you. We’ve treated hundreds of patients in the same situation. If you have any questions about coverage from your auto policy you can view information on the Florida PIP law or ask us. An attorney may also refer you to our office or we can send you to one we work with.

People will see improvement with therapy and chiropractic care about 2-4 weeks after starting treatment with us. If someone does not respond to chiropractic care, we will send for an MRI of the problem area. In these tests we look for vertebral disc herniation, which can be far more complicated than just a sprain or strain injury.
