Florida is one of only a few states with personal injury protection (no-fault) auto insurance. Under Florida law, you have 14 days after an accident to see a care provider and report an injury to your insurance company or you lose your benefits! Don’t wait, call us today.

dreamstime_xxl_31864364One of the most common injuries from accidents is whiplash. This happens when your body, or head, is forcefully thrust in a direction, destabilizing your spine and creating an unbearable amount of pain. Unfortunately, the effects don’t end there. Whiplash can bring on blurred vision, dizziness, headaches and reduced range of motion. These side effects are added on to the additional pain that is felt in the neck, shoulder, back and arm.

Chiropractic care needs to happen soon after an accident because effects from whiplash can develop into long-term pain. Unfortunately, symptoms of whiplash can take days, weeks, months and, sometimes even years, to develop. Even after the slightest of accidents, it’s best to visit our chiropractor so that we can ensure that your alignment is set straight again.

Having a straight alignment is crucial to your body and its bill of health. When whiplash goes without chiropractic adjustment, not only does long-term pain occur, but you risk affecting your muscles, bones and nerves. This type of stress can be extremely dangerous to your body.

You will also see a positive change in your body’s mobility as it is relieved from the stiffness and pain. There are times that an accident may have caused enough damage, or if it’s been awhile since the accident, where more than one visit to your chiropractor will be needed.

If you’ve recently been in an accident, contact Coastal Chiropractic to schedule an appointment. Our chiropractor can assure you that your alignment is back in place and that no stress or pressure will be put on your muscles, bones or nerves.
