Auto Accident Care | St. Petersburg

Auto Accident Care | St. PetersburgAuto accident care should not be postponed after a collision in St. Petersburg. Bond Thomas Chiropractic suggests making your first appointment within two weeks of the date of your crash. Addressing the issue as soon as possible is imperative because most insurance companies in Florida will only cover your therapy expenses if you begin treatment within 14 days from the date of your collision.

Do I Need Treatments?

If you are unsure whether your injuries need auto accident care, schedule an appointment with us in St. Petersburg and we will give you an honest physical assessment. We do:

  • Examinations
  • Evaluations
  • Spinal/Postural Screenings
  • X-Rays

Once you see our evaluations, screenings, and x-rays, and fully understand your current physical state, you can feel free to decide for yourself whether to continue with treatments or not.

Auto Accident Care in a Timely Manner

Getting proper auto accident care in a timely manner is important for some reasons in St. Petersburg.

  1. Your insurance may cover all (or most) of your medical treatments.
  2. Your body will be aligned, allowing your body’s self-healing mechanisms to set in correctly and avoid healing in a way that will cause future physical disorders.
  3. When you are dealing with pain or injury, your body is very resourceful in moving around the pain; sometimes your muscles will begin to avoid making movements that aggravate the pain and in turn, muscle memory can remember those incorrect patterns. When we use therapy to prevent bad habits, we can avoid the extra work it will take to override bad muscle habits in the future.
  4. You have extra motivation and professional attention to achieve healing as quickly and efficiently as possible.

How Can a Chiropractor Help?

There is no end to the sorts of injuries people can get in St. Petersburg as a result of car collisions, which may reach far past the auto accident care that chiropractors can offer. When facing the weight and impact of high speeds paired with all of the parts associated with your car, any part of the body can be severely affected.

When it comes to the non-fatal types of car collisions, we see a pattern in the injuries that our patients receive. Some of the more common injuries include these parts of the body:

  • Shoulders— Shoulder injury is very common; especially shoulder tears, which cause damage to the cuff of cartilage in your joint known as the labrum. Whiplash pain often shoots across the shoulder blades, going up into the head and then shooting down between the shoulder blades.
  • Back— We often get complaints of lower back pain, which are often related to whiplash. Whiplash injuries are very common in auto accident care in St. Petersburg because they result from wearing a seat belt. The back is also capable of being strained or sprained from the impact and sudden jerks and movements of the body.
  • Neck— The neck is also heavily affected during whiplash. The neck is susceptible to sprains and strains which can affect many other parts of your nervous, muscular, and skeletal systems.
  • Head— Migraines and tension headaches often torture the victims of a collision. Our patients often experience heavy spells of dizziness, loss of balance, and the inability to concentrate.
