For most of us, driving is probably the most dangerous thing we do on a daily basis. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are over 2 million injuries from motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. every year.
Long term damage to the spine and head is especially common in car accidents. Doctors of Chiropractic have recognized for years that most victims of automobile injuries may fully recover under chiropractic care. In the State of Florida, you have 14 days to seek medical/chiropractic care for your PIP insurance to properly cover you.
It is also a good idea to get checked by a chiropractor even if you are unsure of whether you suffered injuries from the car crash. Symptoms from injuries may take days or even weeks to appear.
So, wear your seatbelt and if you get into a car crash, please make sure to get your spine checked within 14 days, just to make sure.
