Chiropractors are the only doctors trained to treat specifically the types of which are injuries common after an accident. These include whiplash injuries, soft tissue damage, musculoskeletal injuries, cervical, thoracic, and lumbar strains and sprains. You should seek treatment from a chiropractor as soon as possible.
Even if you are in slight to no pain, it’s still a good idea to consult with a chiropractor after your car accident. Many injuries don’t cause pain or significant discomfort until weeks or months after the accident has occurred. If you still have not sought treatment until the pain surfaces, you may forfeit your right to insurance coverage for your injuries.
Depending on the state you reside in, you only have a certain amount of time after an accident to receive your insurance benefits. In Florida, you only have 14 days to seek medical attention. The best rule of thumb to keep your health and your finances protected is to get checked out by a chiropractor within 2 weeks of your accident.
