  1. Recovery Process May Get Delayed-Seeking a chiropractic exam is imperative following an accident. A chiropractor is trained to identify any misalignments or shifting of the spine following trauma. Failing to seek immediate medical care after an auto accident can be costly, delay the recovery process, or worse cause future irreparable damage to the spine.
  2. Hidden Injuries-Some of these injuries can be hidden or delayed and not even develop for weeks to months after the accident.
  3. Timing is Crucial-When auto insurance companies are involved; timing becomes crucial in receiving coverage for your auto accident injury.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries:

Hidden Injuries- Some injuries such as whiplash do not present immediately following an auto accident. It sometimes takes days or weeks to feel the symptoms of whiplash (headache, soreness, dizziness, pain in the upper back and neck). We can properly diagnose your injuries and initiate your Chiropractic care plan before the pain worsens and becomes unbearable ONLY if you seek care immediately after your auto accident.

Surgery-Free and Drug-Free Approach to Pain Relief- Pain medication and other narcotics commonly prescribed following auto accidents can be extremely addictive. Chiropractic care offers relief from pain without the need for any addictive drugs or medications and promotes natural healing, not just masking the pain.

Frequently Asked Questions:

-Can your chiropractor work with my insurance company and/or legal case?
Yes! North Broward Chiropractic has decades of experience in managing auto accident cases, co-managing cases with other specialists, and attorney firms.

-How soon after an auto accident should I get checked out?
You must obtain medical care within 14 days if you suffer injuries in a traffic accident in Florida, or else your insurance company will deny your claim. Failing to receive medical attention and services within 14 days after the auto accident gives your insurance company the right to deny medical benefits. It’s always important to seek immediate medical care after an auto accident – not just for insurance purposes. Failing to see a doctor right away can worsen your prognosis for recovery. Many injuries can have delayed symptoms, including back or neck injuries.

-Do I have whiplash?
If you feel a tightening in your neck and shoulders after an auto accident or another incident that snaps your head forward or backward, you may wonder about whiplash. How do you know if you have it? You may feel signs and symptoms of whiplash immediately after the injury or they may not show up for several days to WEEKS. Common signs of whiplash include pain, muscle spasms, decreased range of motion, headache, stiff neck, fatigue, anxiety, and memory disturbances.

-I don’t feel injured why should I still visit a chiropractor?
Just because you don’t feel immediate pain, it doesn’t mean that everything is working perfectly. Pain often manifests itself much later, after the injury has had time to settle in and progress. Instead of waiting for this to happen, get to the chiropractor and let them assess you immediately. They may be able to do a quick check of the spine, looking for joint restriction that could lead to significant pain and arthritis later. And if these areas are found, they can nip them in the bud before they have the chance to cause you discomfort.

Reviews:

“Dr. Karpf and his staff at North Broward Chiropractic and Wellness are the absolute best in the business. When I first visited Dr. Karpf’s office I was in tremendous pain due to an auto accident. I thought this pain might be my new normal. After a few weeks of treatment, my condition improved. The adjustments, traction, and massage therapy were a lifesaver! I am now doing everything I need and want to do. Thank you, Dr. Karpf!”
