Usually, folks who are involved in a car accident are more concerned with the body of their car then their own body. Naturally, accident participants want to get their car fixed quickly and push the insurance company to get an adjuster out immediately.
Frequently, these accident participants overlook the potential injuries that they may have. Injuries that happen at speeds below 10 miles per hour can play havoc with your muscles and soft tissue. Neck and back pain may occur well after the accident but is attributable to the car accident.
If you are in a car accident, you owe it to yourself to get checked out by a chiropractor or orthopedic physician. If you have a need for injury care caused by your car accident it is better to begin soon rather than later. Prompt treatment can help lessen pain after an accident and insurance usually pays 80 to 100 percent of the cost.

, Orlando premier health care providers for those with a personal injury.
Unlike your car that is involved in a crash, your body may not show any outward signs of injury immediately following an accident. However, once the excitement has ended and the rush of adrenalin subsides, aches and pain may begin.
Hidden injuries can effect you neck and back and may be related to whiplash. Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries and occurs even from a low speed accident. Kinetic energy keeps a human body moving even after a car stops at the time of the accident. This whips the victims head and neck forward straining muscles in the back and neck. Headache, back pain and neck pain are the primary symptoms of whiplash injuries. Pain medication can help, but it only relieves symptoms. At SafeCare Docs we will get rid of the cause of your pain so that you can be free of drugs that may affect your ability to concentrate.
Getting yourself checked out after an auto accident makes sense. If you need to file an insurance claim, the early you file the better. When too much time elapses between the accident and the filing of the claim, insurers suspect other causes of your discomfort.
