Been in an accident? We've got your back!
Because Florida is a "no-fault" state, accident victims are often fully covered after receiving an injury from an automobile accident. Patients must see a doctor within 14 days of the accident to begin treatment.
Chiropractic care is an excellent first treatment! Why? We will admister thorough exams with special testing and diagnostic imaging. Based on the information attained, the chiropractor will create a custom auto injury treatment plan or refer out if necessary.
When the body undergoes a traumatic event, it reacts by building scar tissue to heal. The tissue is not very flexible, and can lead to mobility, flexibility, range of motion, and pain issues. This is where we come in: our team will create a specialized treatment plan unique to YOU!
Auto Injury Treatment Plan
You will receive chiropractic adjustments to put your body back into proper alignment. Some of your pain may be due to spinal misalignment, something that causes muscle strain and can put tension on your muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
During your adjustment appointment, Dr. Schumacher will use a variety of tools and techniques to promote proper alignment and healing, including:
- An impulse adjusting instrument to apply precise, focused, yet gentle pressure
- Cupping to reduce pain and promote blood flow
- Instrument assisted soft tissue massage to decrease adhesions in fascia and underlying tissue
- A Hyper-Volt massage gun to massage and heal the deeper tissues
- + More!
In addition to adjustments, your chiropractor might recommend acupuncture to promote blood and lymph flow to help heal injured areas. Click here to see what to expect on your first initial visit.
Is Chiropractic Treatment Safe?
Chiropractic therapies are considered extremely safe. In fact, when you compare them to surgical treatments and pain management through pharmaceuticals, chiropractic is often the preferred treatment!
With chiropractic care, you don’t have to worry about addictive, damaging medications. You may be able to put off surgery or prevent it completely with chiropractic adjustments. Studies have shown that conservative care is associated with fewer serious adverse outcomes than pharmacological care. (1)
