Auto Accident Orlando – Get Checked
What We Look For After an Auto Accident Orlando
Auto Accident Orlando? Get Checked! The human body is truly an amazing thing. With a diet rich in whole natural foods, plenty of fresh air and sunshine, regular exercise and enough sleep, the body has what it needs to heal itself in many cases. Stories abound of medical miracles where people are cured overnight of critical illnesses. Unfortunately, such incidents are rare and the body’s ability to heal itself has its limits.
If you’ve been in an accident in Orlando, you may feel fine or you may assume that you’re just a little sore from the ordeal and you’ll feel better in a few days, and while this may be the case, you could also have “hidden injuries”. Hidden injuries can be anything from a herniated disc to traumatic brain injury. Brain injuries can take a while to show up and can cause long-term impairment to your brain function. This is why it’s so important to see a doctor immediately after a car accident, even if you’re feeling okay. We not only look for obvious injuries, but we also look for hidden ones by looking for areas where the joints are not moving correctly and we do some diagnostic tests.
If you’ve been in an auto accident Orlando, here’s a simple test you can do yourself.
Stand facing a mirror.
Turn your head all the way to the left.
Turn your head all the way to the right.
Check for symmetry. Symmetry means that you have the same range of motion on both sides. If it is not the same, it could indicate that there is a problem with the joint.
Stand still and move only your head forward as far as you can.
From that position, move your head as far back as you can.
Check for fluidity and pain.
If you lack symmetry, fluid movement, or if there is pain or discomfort, there is most likely a joint or spine problem.
