Auto Accident Injury Treatment with our Tallahassee Multidisciplinary Team
If you're in an auto accident, one of your first reflexes will likely be to assess whether you and everyone around you are okay. Depending on the nature of the crash, you may feel like you are fine only to discover later that you have suffered from an auto accident injury after all. This because adrenaline you experience from the incident, as well as other factors, can often mask initial symptoms, but the damage is still there. However, in order to make a full recovery and have the best chance of success when making an insurance claim, it is important to see a Tallahassee chiropractor as soon as possible. Our multidisciplinary team of physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapist, and physiatrist at Magnolia Wellness Center can examine you after an auto accident and ensure that you are given the best possible care.
Connecting an Auto Accident Injury to an Accident
At Magnolia Wellness Center in Tallahassee, FL we have a number of strong diagnostic tools at our disposal, and the closer the gap is between when you come in after an auto accident and the actual accident, the stronger we can link your injuries to the accident. When you come in, it is important to disclose that you have been in an accident in order to make us aware so that we can look for these types of injuries and make note of them for the insurance company. In addition to treating your injury, we can also help with any paperwork that may be involved with your claim.
Treating Common Injuries
Not every injury that can potentially be sustained from an auto accident will be able to be treated by a chiropractor, but many of the most common injuries can. Some of these include
Whiplash - Whiplash injuries occur in many types of accidents but are especially common when one vehicle strikes another vehicle from behind causing the neck to move forward and back very quickly.
Back Injuries - Back injuries can be a result of sprains, strains, fracture, or due to herniated discs pressing on a nerve. Our chiropractor can help realign the spine and will show you how to strengthen muscles in order to help your own recovery.
General Stiffness or Soreness - If one area is even slightly injured, it is natural to put a stronger demand on the other side causing stiffness in an unused joint or soreness in an area that is overused. It can also throw off your overall balance. Our chiropractor can help you get that balance back and alleviate much of the related discomfort.
Headaches - Accident related headaches are often related to neck injuries because the pain can radiate up the base of the neck into the back of the head. They may also be the sign of a concussion. Coming in quickly will help assure that the cause of any headache is identified promptly. Since concussions are always possible, it is important to take even slight headaches seriously when you've been in an accident.
