Auto Injuries

Bentin Chiropractic for auto accident injuries is prepared with a wide variety of treatment options to help patients fully rehabilitate and return to pre-accident condition. Our system of care involves a multi-disciplinary approach designed to ensure the health of the entire body so that crash sufferers can return to normal life without pain or restricted movement. Our system of care is outlined below.

Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries:

Auto accidents often have a negative effect on the spine. Those who have recently suffered a crash must understand that auto accidents may cause the spine to become misaligned; in such cases; the consequences for the health of the entire body cannot be underestimated. When the spine is misaligned, the nervous system—which governs all functions of the body—is no longer in perfect working order. In some cases, patients will suffer for years with seemingly unrelated issues such as migraine or allergies before visiting a chiropractor.

Whiplash, for example, causes pain, immobility, and other symptoms directly related to injury to the soft tissues of the neck. This condition, when left untreated, may also lead to serious health problems caused by a misalignment of the cervical spine (the neck) as well as chronic pain.

The symptoms of whiplash and other auto accident injuries may not appear immediately, so it’s important to have a full examination after any incident. If a diagnosis of an auto accident injury is forthcoming, it’s important to begin treatment as soon as possible.
Florida law ensures that chiropractic care for auto accident injuries is covered by the personal injury protection included in mandatory car insurance policies. This measure is intended to ensure that patients receive effective care for auto accident injuries; chiropractic is widely recommended for the care of the most common injuries such as whiplash or disc problems.

Physical Therapy:

Used with or without chiropractic treatment, physical therapy has several fundamental goals: to reduce or eliminate pain, restore movement and flexibility, and build strength. All of these objectives are important in restoring the body to pre-accident condition.
As with all treatments at Bentin Chiropractic, auto accidents injuries are truly personalized, compassionate, and uses the very best in both new and time-tested therapeutic options. Depending on the type and severity of injury, any of the following practices may be used: therapeutic exercise; hot and cold therapies; electrical muscle stimulation; lumbar/cervical traction (excellent for the resolution of disc injuries); and ultrasound technology.

* Massage Therapy:

Plans of rehabilitation after an auto accident often include massage therapy. The deep tissue massage offered at Bentin Chiropractic is an excellent accompaniment to chiropractic services. This treatment relaxes muscle tension for better therapeutic effect while also working to stabilize the spine. Additionally, massage therapy makes the joints more pliable for chiropractic manipulation while warming the soft tissues of the spine.

* In the state of Florida most auto insurance carriers do no cover massage therapy when performed by a massage therapist.
