Overlooked Auto Accident Injuries in Clermont

At Michaux Family Chiropractor, we see a lot of Florida patients who were injured in auto accidents and experience back or neck pain. We also see patients who "just don't feel right," who we find out later were in an auto accident. Many auto accidents cause delayed pain, thus symptoms may be overlooked. Learn the symptoms of commonly overlooked injuries and how we can help. 

overlooked auto injuries

Commonly overlooked auto accident injuries include: 

  • Headaches - Frequent headaches after an auto accident may be a sign of whiplash, another overlooked injury, or they may indicate a subluxation of the neck vertebrae. By examining the vertebrae in your neck and discussing your symptoms we can find and fix the source of your headaches. 
  • Concussion - If you hit your head in the crash, you might have a concussion. We can evaluate you for signs of concussion and treat trauma to the head and neck. 
  • Back pain and herniated discs - Back pain is common after an auto accident, yet may be dismissed as muscle stiffness. A severe crash could cause a herniated disc in the low back, which is best treated with chiropractic. 
  • Whiplash - Whiplash is a type of neck strain that limits your ability to move your neck. Whiplash also causes pain, stiff neck, fatigue, and dizziness. Whiplash is often overlooked after an auto accident since it features a delayed onset as its signature symptom. 

If these symptoms sound familiar, come in for a chiropractic consult. 

How Our Clermont Chiropractor Treats Back & Neck Pain 

At Michaux Family Chiropractor, our Clermont chiropractor uses chiropractic adjustments to relieve auto accident pain naturally. Rather that have surgery or take pain medication every day, our care helps your body heal while promoting your optimal wellness. 

Our adjustments are gentle, and they push your spine back into alignment. A healthy spine means a strong nervous system that is capable of self-healing your injuries. Over a series of treatments, pain and tension will decrease, inflammation will subside, and you'll begin to feel more energy. To support your healing, we will suggest lifestyle changes, nutrition supplements, and stretches that will help you regain mobility and flexibility. 

Many auto injuries have a soft tissue component. To promote tissue healing, we will use myofascial release and electrotherapy. These forms of physiotherapy reduce inflammation, control pain, loosen scar tissue and muscle adhesion, and increase mobility.
