What is personal injury?
Personal injury can refer to a number of different injuries resulting from accidents. Some of the most common personal injuries patients come to us for include:
Car accidents and truck accidents are devastating to the human body. Even a minor fender bender at relatively slow speeds can wreak havoc on your bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, joints, spinal discs and other tissues. We treat all types of auto accidents, including whiplash, injuries to extremities, back injuries, neck injuries and more.
Your job does not have to be dangerous for you to sustain injuries. While we do treat patients who work construction, industrial and other jobs that are hard on the body, we also treat plenty of patients injured in the office as well. Whether you are dealing with a major back injury, carpel tunnel, or anything in between, we can help.
What are the most common types of personal injuries you treat?
We work with patients of all ages and from all walks of life, so we see a wide variety of injuries and conditions. Some of the most common injuries we treat include:
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Carpel tunnel
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Herniated and bulging discs
- Shoulder pain
- Limited mobility
What are the benefits of choosing a chiropractor?
The goal of chiropractic care is to use gentle, non-invasive treatments that encourage your body’s own natural healing processes. Surgery and prescription medications often have significant side effects, and can leave you even worse off than you started. With chiropractic care, you will experience minimal side effects while getting the relief you need from pain and discomfort. Ultimately, we want to help you achieve optimal health over a lifetime.
When should I come in for treatment?
If you have been hurt in an accident, it is important that you seek medical care as soon as possible – particularly if you were involved in a car accident. Florida law requires you to report any injuries from a car accident within 14 days. If you want to ensure that your treatment is covered by insurance, you will want to seek care sooner rather than later. Also, treatment is often more effective when administered soon after an injury.
Will auto insurance cover the cost of my treatment?
While insurance policies vary, we have found that most patients involved in auto accidents are able to get their treatment covered by their insurer. If you are uncertain about your insurance coverage, we recommend you contact us and speak with our team.
What can I expect when I visit your office?
When you come to Back to Health Wellness Center, you can expect to be treated with respect and compassion. We will gather your contact information and insurance information after you first come in, and then you will meet with the doctor. You will receive a comprehensive physical exam, and be asked a number of questions to get your perspective on your injuries. Once the doctor has a clear picture of your situation, you will get an outline of your suggested treatment plan. Then you will start treatment, which may include:
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Spinal decompression
- Massage therapy
- Corrective exercises
- Nutrition coaching
