Automobile accidents are a frequent occurrence in Boca Raton. Many people do not realize the extent of their injuries until they become severe and ongoing. One injury to part of your body could result in feeling pain in another part of your body, so an injury you thought you never had can further worsen. To help have a better understanding of the seriousness of being treated for an auto accident injury, here are some answers to frequently asked questions here at the Boca Health & Wellness Center encounter.
One of the most common, yet frequently overlooked types of injuries is whiplash. The symptoms of whiplash often include stiffness, aching, and pain; which can be misleading as only being the after-effects of the accident. Other symptoms of whiplash include headaches and decreased range of motion. Injuries to the upper and lower extremities, the head and muscle and ligament injuries are common types of auto accident injury. The spine is highly susceptible to injury, so these injuries are also common in auto accidents.
Absolutely not! There are a wide range of complications that can occur if you put off immediate treatment. For example, the symptoms of whiplash may not appear for days, even weeks after the accident and the longer you put off treatment for whiplash, the greater the risk of symptoms turning into a lifelong problem.
We discuss the symptoms you are experiencing and your medical history, and then we discuss a treatment plan based on the type of injuries you have and the chiropractic treatments that will be the most effective for your recovery. Some treatments include a spinal adjustment for a spinal misalignment caused by the accident, massage therapy, exercise and or physical therapy.
