Being in an auto accident is one of the worst feelings in the whole world. Time slows, you often see yourself and the whole scene in slow motion, and then you feel that horrible impact. It shakes you to the core of your being and adrenalin floods your system.
As you come to a halt your logical mind takes back over suddenly observing the situation – looking at your car and the damage, the other car, and most importantly if you or the other driver have been injured.
Even if you believe you have not been hurt it is important to get checked out. In Florida you only have 14 days in which to initiate medical treatment for it to be covered under your PIP (Personal Injury Protection) insurance coverage on your auto policy.
While you may have no broken bones or internal injuries, that doesn’t mean you haven’t been injured. Soft tissue injuries and misalignments, especially if not treated and corrected right away can plague you for years if not the rest of your lifetime with unnecessary aches and pains especially as you age.
Getting proper chiropractic care as well as ultrasound and massage and other modalities during the initial healing phase can make a world of difference. It gives your body a chance to heal properly in alignment, so you are not causing undue wear and tear on other muscles, tendons, ligaments, or bones. Misalignments can change the way you move much like uneven wear and tear on tires of a car. It will eventually lead to more costly repairs down the road and in the case of a human body, more pain down the road.
