Accident & injury cases are extremely common. In the state of Florida, if you have been in a car accident, you must be seen by a doctor within 14 days of your accident, or you will lose your car accident & injury related medical benefits.
Common car and other accident injuries include whiplash, herniated discs, nerve damage, neck/back pain, shoulder pain, reduced range of motion, stiffness, and dizziness.
It is common for your pain to start feeling worse and worse days after an accident. Strains and sprains (soft tissue injuries) for the most part aren’t detectable on x-rays and are often overlooked. If those injuries are not properly addressed, they can lead to chronic pain for months or even years after an accident.
Car accident and personal injuries require physical treatment to attain lasting healing and movement. Even if it’s been longer than 14 days since your accident, come in and visit Dr. Paul to get an evaluation and treatment plan so you can get moving again!
