Auto Accident Injury Care 

Have you recently been involved in an auto accident? Our experienced team at Rumley Family Chiropractic P.A. stresses the importance of seeing our chiropractor just following the incident. During an auto accident, the body experiences an unexpected impact causing the entire frame to unnaturally shift. 

If you have been involved in an auto accident injury, but seem free from pain, now is still the most ideal time to see us for an evaluation. When impact occurs from whiplash, tissues such as muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia shift quickly and out of their normal ranges of motion. This may not cause immediate pain and can take several days to approximately a week for some people to experience pain or discomfort. Seeing us now ensures that we discover any potentially serious injuries such as fractures, severe bruising and vertebral misalignment. 

How Chiropractic Care Can Help You Heal From Auto Accident Injuries in Orlando Florida

Headache, neck pain, back pain, serious bruising, nerve irritation and spinal misalignment are several of the issues that arise following auto accidents. These auto accident injuries respond to a variety of chiropractic techniques that we use in our office. At Rumley Family Chiropractic P.A., Dr. Rumley offers relief, recovery and rehabilitation care to deal with all aspects of your auto accident injury. At your visit Dr. Rumley will evaluate your situation, order any necessary x-rays and may even perform an adjustment. Many patients report relief following their first session, while it may take several adjustments for others. 

Dr. Rumley's initial therapies are aimed at reducing spinal column pressure and compression to help reduce inflammation. We incorporate massage therapy to relieve muscles and supporting tissues. A combination of laser and electrical therapy to stimulate muscle healing at the cellular level may also be used to help you heal as well. Once inflammation and pain has been reduced, we can turn our focus to helping increase your mobility and strength. Through the use of regular adjustments we can improve spinal range of motion. If disc rotation has occurred, we will also incorporate gentle spinal decompression to "convince" discs to return to proper alignment. To help support your chiropractic adjustments we may also suggest the use of physical therapy and exercises. 

In many cases, chiropractic care can help you heal safer and faster compared to other conventional modalities, free from the use of strong pharmaceutical medications. Seeing us just following your auto accident may also help avoid serious surgical procedures later down the road. If you sustained an injury from an accident that occurred in the past, please give us a call, we can still help regardless of the length of time that has passed. 

If you have been involved in a car accident, Do Not Delay! Call us at Rumley Family Chiropractic P.A. right away to help get you on the path to relief and recovery. 

Whiplash Neck Injuries Caused From Auto Accidents

Whiplash injuries are commonly associated with auto accidents. The abrupt, and sometimes violent, force that results from the vehicle suddenly stopping can cause severe head, neck and shoulder injuries. An abrupt stop to forward motion causes the head to propel forward and then snap backwards. In most cases, the person tenses up as they prepare for impact. This increases the risk of injury because the muscles are working against the force of the motion. A patient who has been injured in an automobile accident can expect to receive gentle, but thorough, health care at a chiropractor's office. Adjustments are easily performed and offer fast, efficient relief of pain, inflammation and other forms of discomfort that often accompany injuries such as whiplash and strained muscles.

Treating Whiplash Injury with Your Orlando Chiropractor


Whiplash can be effectively treated with chiropractic care. Minor adjustments accompanied by massage therapy and mild exercise, like stretching can help a neck injury to heal. Depending on the severity of the injury, it may take several weeks to completely heal. Chiropractic adjustments help to restore balance within the body, realigning bones and connective tissue and alleviating the pain and inflammation that accompanies the injury. With each adjustment, circulation increases and the effects of the treatment will last for longer periods of time.

Nutritional supplements can also help alleviate symptoms like inflammation and pain. When the right nutrients are added to the treatment plan, they receive what they need to hasten the healing process. A chiropractor can create a treatment plan that offers everything the body needs to heal and regain its strength. At Rumley Family Chiropractic, P.A., our qualified practitioners are able to evaluate the severity of each injury and formulate a treatment that is customized to the patient. Many patients will show improvements after the first initial treatment, while others may require several visits. Their general health and physical condition will play a large role in how fast they heal after an auto accident. The chiropractor will discuss the injury with the patient in great detail.

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"
