Did you know that in the state of Florida, there is a 14-day period after your car crash in which you can get an insurance-covered Chiropractic exam? Recover FASTER and FOR FREE!
It is extremely important to see a Chiropractor immediately after a car accident. Even car crashes at low speeds can cause serious damage. There are studies that show that many injuries take place in accidents that occur at lower than 20 miles per hour. Even if you do not experience immediate pain, it would be very wise to come visit Synergy Oviedo Chiropractic to get an examination. The most common whiplash injuries occur in car accidents at 5 to 8 miles per hour. This may sound silly, but even the slightest movements can cause your spine to become misaligned. Think about standing on a trail, just looking ahead, and being run into by a person running 8 miles per hour from behind. That would certainly knock you off of your feet and cause trauma to your spine. This collision is similar to a blind-side hit in football, except instead of bodies; 8,000 pounds of metal and glass are crunching together, which is equivalent to being hit by an elephant! These misalignments in your spine are called vertebral subluxations, which hamper the communication between your brain and body, and can cause many health problems.

It is definitely in your best interest to come get an X-ray and examination from our amazing Chiropractic Doctors. Car accidents can cause serious damage to your spine. However, the shock and dismay at actually being in a car accident actually masks or delays the onset of the debilitating pain caused by the accident. Misalignments in your spine can be affecting your body without you even knowing it. Pain from these subluxations doesn’t usually begin to occur until it’s too late. The discs in your spine can take decades to wear out, and once they do, the cushion between the discs is gone, creating bone on bone interaction. This leads to more complex problems, difficult treatment, and the possibility of surgery.
When visiting Synergy Oviedo Chiropractic after a car crash, it is necessary to give as much information about your accident as possible, so we can recreate the scenario and inspect your body in all areas that may be affected. We will conduct an X-ray to check for fractures and will conduct a full inspection of your neck and back to make sure there are no underlying problems in your spine. Upon completion of your car accident examination, we will form a plan of treatment that will tend to your individual needs and put you on your way to a full recovery.
