Why You Shouldn’t Wait to See A Chiropractor After An Auto Accident in Orlando, FL

Why You Shouldn’t Wait to See A Chiropractor After An Auto Accident in Orlando, FL

Car accidents can lead to whiplash, chronic pain and reduced quality of life. At Rumley Family Chiropractic in Orlando, FL, we want our patients to understand the detrimental effect of whiplash, and how important it is to seek treatment after a car accident occurs. Knowing the warning signs of whiplash, as well as the length of time it can take for whiplash to display symptoms after an accident, can help you seek care after an accident occurs.

Symptoms of Whiplash Can Take Time to Manifest

Whiplash is a condition that occurs because of the forward push and backward jerk that happens to passengers when a car is hit from behind. Whiplash can take one or several days to present itself. The symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Pain and tenderness in the neck, shoulders and back.
  • Dizziness.
  • Headaches.
  • Insomnia.
  • Irritability.
  • Limited range of motion.
  • Muscle stiffness.

Waiting to See a Chiropractor Can Make it Difficult to Link the Whiplash to the Accident

Once you’ve realized that you have whiplash, you may decide to seek compensation through legal proceedings. Waiting to seek diagnosis can make it far more difficult to link your injury back to your accident, which can therefore make it difficult or impossible to get the money you need to cover medical expenses and lost wages. Seeking medical treatment right away can help you make a case in court later on, if you should decide to do so.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I got into a car accident. My first one ever in fact. I wasn't really sure where to turn or what to do, but I knew my back and neck were pretty messed up and I needed some help. I did a quick Google search and found exactly what I needed. The Rumley Family website was very professional appearing and they got back to me quickly. I started my treatment and felt like a part of the family from the get go. Treatment was consistent and they paid deep attention to where I actually hurt unlike some doctors that tell you what hurts when it doesn't. Im very satisfied and I would come back again"

  • ""They are very nice family and very generous"

    This year I recently got into a car accident with my boyfriend and we were referred to Rumley Family Chiropractic for treatment. They took great care of us each visit we went to and helped us get better over the months. They are a very nice family and very generous. We recommend this place better than any other place!"
