When Should You See a Chiropractor after an Auto Accident?

Whether you are in a minor accident or a larger scale collision, it’s important that you make visiting a chiropractor a top priority. First and foremost, your safety is of the utmost importance. Calling 911 after an accident is essential for any and everything emergent. Then, your next step should be calling Dr. Keren H. Gomez, your chiropractic physician and Miami Accident Clinic.

Importance of an Early Evaluation

While emergency medicine at the hospital may clear you of broken bones and life threatening illnesses, they don’t always address the acute and chronic pain that you may be experiencing after an accident. This is why it is so important for an early evaluation by a chiropractor. At the offices of Dr. Keren H. Gomez, we have three locations for your convenience in Dade, Broward and Palm Beach. Here, our doctors will do a thorough evaluation of you and help to determine the cause of your pain. No pain at all? Unfortunately, it can be common to not experience pain right away. However, as the days go by, the pain may begin to occur and if left untreated, it may leave you with some chronic, even life-altering pain and discomfort. This is why being checked out by Dr. Keren H. Gomez is so essential in those first few days.

Chiropractic Care After an Accident

So how do we help? Once our chiropractors do a full evaluation and pinpoint your problem areas, healing can begin. Chiropractic care is an all-natural treatment that focuses on your problem instead of just masking your symptoms with medications. Through the manipulation of the spine, we hope to holistically heal your entire body and get you back on the path to wellness. With Dr. Keren H. Gomez, we use all the latest state-of-the-art techniques and technology to help improve your quality of care. In conjunction with chiropractic care, we provide:

  • Intervertebral Traction
  • Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
  • Therapeutic Ultrasound
  • Neck Traction
  • Neck Strengthening
  • Moist Heat
  • Cryotherapy
  • Light Therapy

Importance of Seeking Treatment Financially

Not only is it of the utmost importance to seek treatment for your health, but it’s equally important to seek treatment financially as well. If you are involved in a car accident in Florida, you are typically given 14 days to seek medical treatment. If you are out of this window, many times insurers won’t cover you. No matter what scale your accident may have been on, seeking treatment should be your top priority.
