Auto Accident

Have you recently been in a car accident?  Not sure what to do next or where to go?  

Here are the 10 most important Auto Injury Care Tips you need to know:


1 Car accidents can not only cause damage to your vehicle, but also all occupants.   In fact, even if there is little damage to the car, it does not mean that you did not get injured.  In fact sometimes, the less damage to the car, the more force could have been on your body.


2.  Use the Emergency Room if you suspect a fracture, bleed, or other life threatening injury.  You are not required to go the the Emergency Room and often this type of evaluation is the most expensive leaving little insurance benefits to get the care you need to fix your injuries.  The ER though is not the ideal "first choice" for many common injuries to your back and neck.  In addition, most primary care doctors do not treat auto accident cases for their patients.  You may want to see an experienced practice that can handle these injuries like Synergy Oviedo Chiropractic.  


3.  Within each of your auto insurance policies are health benefits to provide you care, even if you were at fault or were a passenger.  This health benefit often has no deductibles or copays which means that you can get the help you need affordably.  


4.  You only have 14 days from the day of the crash to be evaluated.  Failure to see a doctor that accepts auto injury cases, like Synergy Oviedo Chiropractic, in a timely manner will cause you to lose your health benefits and the care you may need to get well.


5.    Do not minimize or ignore the need for a proper evaluation because you do not feel symptoms the day of the crash.  Often the symptoms may creep up hours to days later because adrenaline shuts off the pain.  Unfortunately, some people "ignore" their pain, hoping it will go away or other take pain medication only to cover it up.  Both scenarios do not address the problem and can result in you missing the 14 day window.

6.   Do not hold off on care for fear of insurance rate increases.  Insurance rates generally increase each year regardless of incidents.   It is a Florida law that you must carry this type of "health insurance" part of your car insurance and the doctors must use this insurance component when treating you for an auto accident.  We have insurance exactly for these type of unfortunate events.  Most rates do not change if you were not at fault.  But always remember, that cars and money can be replaced, you can not.   Your health is your most valuable asset and should always be your main focus.


7.   Seek care from a practice that is experienced in understanding auto injuries and as well as the legal implications.  At Synergy Oviedo Chiropractic, we have evaluated and cared for thousands of patients involved in auto accidents.  Our team can work together with your attorney by providing them up to date information on your progress.  Our doctors have also testified on patient's care and have a working understanding of the process.  Our doctors are educators- involved in guest lecturing for many top local companies as well as the University of Central Florida.  We are committed to properly explaining your injuries  to you and everyone involved in simple to understand language.


8.  Find an office that makes getting your care easy.  We have early morning and late afternoon appointments starting at 6:40 in the morning up until 6:00 pm.  We handle all the billing and communicating with the insurance companies and attorneys involved.  We want you to only focus on getting well. 


9.   Create your auto injury recovery team.  Our doctors at Synergy can serve as the "quarterback" in your recovery plan offering many services under one roof including chiropractic and physical therapy.  We also can refer you to other specialists including diagnostic imaging centers, neurologists, pain management, orthopedic and neurosurgeons who accept and are properly trained in understanding the unique factors for auto injuries.  


10.  Find an office that is 100% committed to getting you well.  We have served the local community for 20 years.  We have been voted Business of the Year by the Oviedo / Winter Springs Chamber.  We have the most 5 Star Google reviews in the area.  We are a family practice that will treat you right by giving you comprehensive care in a warm caring environment.

How Many Of These Serious Indicators Are You Experiencing From Your Car Accident?

Car accidents can cause serious damage to your spine. However, the shock and dismay at actually being in a car accident often masks or delays the onset of the debilitating pain caused by the accident.It's quite common for us to see car accident patients days following the accident as the pain "just kept getting worse" or "it came out of nowhere!" 

As your car accident chiropractor, we encourage you to visit our Synergy Oviedo Chiropractic office as soon as possible to minimize your neck and spinal damage, as well as your pain. It's only in the movies where people simply unbuckle from a violent car accident, waive down a passing car, yank the driver out, hop in, and continue chasing the bad guy as they pull a clean pocket square from their suit jacket and dab a little sweat from their brow or touch up their eye liner at high speed!

The weight of an average car is nearly two tons—4,000 pounds. That means 8,000 pounds of metal and glass are crunching together, which is the same as being hit by an elephant!


Elephant


Is it any wonder you are suffering from any or all of the following due to your car accident:

  • Blurred vision
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Shoulder pain
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Stiffness in your neck
  • Arm pain
  • Lower back pain

Whether you are experiencing dull, sharp, "nagging," or shooting pain, car accidents can wreak havoc on not only your lifestyle but your quality of life. Even if it has been days, weeks, or even months since your car accident, if you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, come see us. Chiropractic adjustments are the best way to naturally reduce the pain of a whiplash injury, back injury, even sciatica, and to help your body heal itself correctly.

Manage and/or Eliminate Your Car Accident Pain The Natural Way

When you wait until the pain from the whiplash injury becomes unbearable you delay and complicate your recovery time. Even a minor car accident or fender-bender (see the minor elephant above) exerts MASSIVE forces on you spine, neck, and other joints.


How much force? A 160 lb person driving just 30 mph that is involved in a collision that stops your vehicle immediately (1 foot) experiences 2.4 TONS of force on your body! (Queue the elephant again!)  That is why what you think is just a minor whiplash injury can make your neck and shoulders tight at first, then they become painful, then the pain expands into headaches, stiffness, blurred vision, loss of sleep, and worse.


More significant injuries include damage to your spinal chord, surrounding muscles, ligaments and joints. That is why you'll benefit from our chiropractic treatment, which is specifically designed to help you recover naturally from injuries sustained in your car accident.  While you may initially need pain medication, they only mask the underlying injury sustained in your car accident. Remember, physical injuries can never be TREATED or CORRECTED with chemical prescriptions.


The other serious risks of pain medications include addiction, unforeseen side effects, and even death. According to the CDC, methadone is to blame for one-third of U.S. prescription painkiller deaths, and it's on the rise.


As chiropractors, we work with your body to promote natural relaxation and healing. Proper chiropractic adjustments align your spine to help your muscles and nerves relax. When your muscles and nerves are allowed to rest after being unnaturally stretched from a car accident injury, your pain and stiffness will be reduced if not eliminated altogether.


As if eliminating your pain isn't enough, expert chiropractic adjustments can also shorten your recovery time by allowing blood to flow freely through your muscles, nerves, and spinal chord. This improved circulation can also help prevent scar tissue from building up and eliminate additional injuries related to the initial car accident injury.

To recover quickly and completely from car accidents you need four teams of people to help you:
