Car accidents are more common than many people realize. In Florida alone, there are around 400,000 accidents every year, and the state itself has a high fatality rate compared to other areas. Even if you were lucky enough to escape with your life, even the most minor of accidents can cause a serious of auto accident injuries and pains that won’t go away without chiropractic adjustment and physical therapy.
There are many serious injuries to look out for after an auto accident:
Common Car Accident Injuries
Even if you can “walk away” from your car accident, it is important to get a checkup and to make a note of your aches and pains. Many injuries from a car accident can last months without professional help, and in other cases, there may be a serious injury that you aren’t dealing with. Always seek medical attention after an accident, even if that isn’t at a hospital.
1. Neck Injuries
Neck injuries are one of the most common types of accident injury that you can expect to experience after a car accident. The most minor version is whiplash, which can cause stiffness and headaches. More serious issues can cause serious pain and can put you at risk in the future.
2. Back Injuries
Back injuries are also very common, and there are many different kinds. You may experience acute low back pain, pain along your spine, or even pain along the back of your legs due to a back injury. Your Hollywood chiropractor, alongside our medical team, will be there to adjust the spine back into its proper position so that you can hold your weight properly again, and more importantly, so that nerves and blood vessels can be freed if they were in a pinch.
3. Joint Injuries
Elbows, wrists, ankles, and even shoulders can also take a beating in an accident. For these types of accidents, we have a variety of physical therapy treatments that work to ease away the pain, improve circulation to the area, and reduce swelling.
4. Muscle Injuries
Bruising, swelling, and even healing from lacerations can all be improved with help from our team. We work with the stage of healing you are in, to help encourage strength and flexibility throughout the process.
5. Brain Trauma
Our neurosurgeon specializes in the type of brain trauma experienced by those in a car accident. He will be able to assess your condition, determine the extent of the damage, and only with his green light will we begin treatment.
6. Lacerations and Burns
Lacerations, burns, road burns, and other similar injuries demand urgent medical health care. We can, however, help your recovery after you have been discharged from this hospital. Get in touch with us or book an appointment so that we can learn more about your condition and determine when we should start our treatment.
Getting Treatment from Our Car Accident Hollywood Clinic
You have to be very careful when seeking out treatment after a car accident in Hollywood. While chiropractic care from a chiropractic physician is often recommended, some many underlying conditions and concerns can make going to even a licensed chiropractor dangerous.
The reason why there is a risk when going to a regular chiropractor is that they are not medical specialists. Every one of our clients goes through an initial consultation with our doctors.
We have a board-certified emergency room physician and a board-certified neurosurgeon on our team to check you over and to assess your condition. This way, we can ensure that your body gets the treatment that it needs and that the care you get only helps your recovery.
After that initial consultation, we will then work to build a robust and personalized treatment plan for recovery and holistic pain management from these great options:
We Accept Medical and Auto Insurance
Chances are we accept the coverage offered by your insurance company. We take all of the big names in Florida, but we do recommend if you have been in a car accident in Hollywood to go through your auto insurance for coverage instead.

You could have been innocent in the accident, or you could have been the at-fault driver. Thanks to Florida law, you are guaranteed coverage within that timeframe.

While these statistics might not be causally related, the physical trauma caused by both can be helped. Visiting an
