Auto Accident Chiropractic

Auto Accident Chiropractic in Panama City Beach

Auto accidents cause severe trauma and injury to the body. Even in a low-speed crash , the force of the impact that is absorbed by your body can be significant. The abrupt deceleration causes whiplash injuries that, if left untreated, can lead to serious issues that may not show up for 15 or 20 years. By then, it will be difficult or impossible to correct the underlying problem.

When your body is injured, it attempts to heal itself and creates scar tissue to protect the injured area. This tissue is not elastic, so you begin to lose range or motion, and your body compensates by moving improperly. The cascade of problems continues, and you suffer with pain and loss of mobility.

How Chiropractic May Help

We recommend coming to Chiropractic Worx as soon as possible after an accident, so we can begin addressing the soft tissue injuries. When the soft tissues are unstable, that means your spine is unstable. When your spine is unstable, it causes nerve impingement, pain and dysfunction.

We are not just focused on pain relief. We locate and address the underlying injuries so your body can heal properly, avoiding pain and issues in the future. Most other medical approaches to auto accident injuries focus solely on pain relief or management—while the underlying cause goes untreated.

Getting You the Results You Want

We will coordinate your care with orthopedists, neurologists and physical therapists as needed to help you get the best possible results. When you come to our office, bring any imaging or records from your ER visit or any other doctor’s visits you’ve had. The state of Florida requires you to be seen by an MD or chiropractor within two weeks of an accident, to file claims. We encourage patients to secure legal representation to ensure that all documentation is handled correctly.
