Every year, hundreds of thousands of drivers in Florida are involved in automobile accidents. Some people are fortunate to walk away from automobile accidents without a scratch, but others suffer from injuries.
Automobile accidents are known to cause a number of injuries, including:
- Sprains and strains
- Herniated discs
- Knee injuries
These injuries are painful and cause other issues like limited range of motion. Some of the symptoms for these injuries can take a few days to develop, so it’s important to visit a doctor for a physical examination as soon as possible if you’ve been in an automobile accident. Catching these injuries earlier on may result in a more efficient treatment.
Health care professionals have several options for treating automobile accident injuries. At the Florida Spine and Joint Institute, we treat many injuries with chiropractic care and orthopedic surgery.
Chiropractic care is a conservative form of treating spine and joint injuries. Doctors of chiropractic use methods like joint mobilization and soft tissue mobilization to reduce pain and improve the range of motion in your spine and joints.
Chiropractic care is beneficial because it doesn’t rely on the use of medication, which can cause side effects. It may also reduce the chances that you need surgery for treatment.
If your injury is serious enough, your doctor may recommend surgery for treatment. For many people, this is a scary thought, but many modern surgical procedures use minimally invasive techniques. This means that many operations are less risky and have quicker and less painful recovery periods.
At the Florida Spine and Joint Institute, our surgeons specialize in a variety of spine, joint and soft tissue surgical procedures that can help you recover after an auto accident injury.
