If you have been involved in a car accident, whiplash injuries need to be taken very seriously. However, symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or months to manifest, so it is easy to be fooled into thinking that you are not as injured as you really are.
Worse yet, if a soft tissue injury (muscles, tendons, ligaments) is not directly addressed with soft tissue therapy, and left untreated and unresolved, the injured muscles and other soft tissues can end up causing chronic pain for months, years-even decades after the accident.
Unfortunately, the standard medical approach to these injuries often amounts to nothing more than suppressing the symptoms with pain-killers and anti-inflammatory drugs, leaving the injured muscles to hopefully heal on their own.
Injured muscle heal with scar tissue in a way that leaves them weaker, less elastic, and prone to re-injury and pain. At Awesome Chiropractic Center we specialize in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. We integrate chiropractic adjustments with motion assisted muscle therapy, nutritional consult, physiotherapy, massage therapy and rehabilitation in order to achieve excellence in natural health and enhance performance.
Lastly, do not shy away from seeking care due to finances, according to the PERSONAL INJURY PROTECTION RIGHTS AND BENEFITS UNDER THE FLORIDA MOTOR VEHICLE NO-FAULT LAW "The minimum limit for no-fault personal injury protection benefits is $10,000 per person for loss sustained as a result of bodily injury, sickness, or disease ($5,000-death) arising out of the ownership, maintenance, or use of a motor vehicle." for more information regarding the florida PIP laws, visit: http://www.floir.com/siteDocuments/OIR-B1-1149.pdf
