Being in a car accident in Miami is a scary experience. It’s also, unfortunately not all that uncommon. There are around 400,000 auto accidents every year in Florida alone, and the state has one of the highest fatality rates.
Being lucky enough to live through an auto accident is not something anyone should take lightly, especially when it comes to their recovery. Regardless of whether you need urgent medical care from a hospital, or you would do better with chiropractic care from a licensed chiropractor, it is in your best interest to seek medical treatment following an accident.
There are so many injuries that can arise that require treatment and careful rehabilitation that go beyond the injuries you are treated for in a hospital.
While yes, internal injuries, lacerations, and even road burn are all things that are treated in hospital, other injuries like acute low back pain, neck pain, whiplash and more are not treated through hospitalization, but rather in chiropractic physician clinics like Icon Medical.
Common Auto Accident Injuries
It doesn’t matter how new or old your accident injury is. We provide chiropractic adjustment, physical therapy, massage therapy, and pain management injections. After a consultation with our medical team will work on building the perfect treatment plan just for you, on ensuring you get a great experience and that you are 100% satisfied with the service you receive from our team.
We can help with:

- And more
We can help those who have been in an accident thanks to our wide range of treatment options. Book an appointment with us for a consultation, and we will go through your options and what kind of results you can expect from our services.
The only thing to remember with auto accident injuries is that it is ideal if you seek out health care treatment from our team within 14 days of the accident. Suppose you are hospitalized, however, then no worries. Follow the doctor’s orders.
The reason it is highly recommended that you start treatment within those two weeks is because, by Florida law, your auto insurance provider must cover your health care costs following an accident.
If you wait longer than two weeks then your insurance company doesn’t have to cover your costs, so even if you don’t need to go to the hospital schedule an appointment with us for a checkup and so that we can start your chiropractic adjustment treatment ASAP.
Our Full Range of Treatment Options
We offer so many treatments to help with accident injuries and chronic pain alike. After your consultation, we will work to build a personalized treatment plan just for you that can include any of these fantastic treatments:
1. Chiropractic Therapy
Your Miami chiropractor will go through all your options and ask about any preferences and intolerances you have. Some need a gentler touch. Others don’t like strangers touching their neck or are recovering from an injury. Whatever you need, we will work with.
2. Mechanical Traction Therapy
Another treatment that your chiropractor in Miami can perform for you is Mechanical Traction Therapy. It is similar to many chiropractic treatments and works to relieve pressure from your spinal discs.
3. Hot/Cold Therapy
For joint injuries and muscle injuries, we have a variety of hot/cold therapies, including moist heat therapies and cryotherapy. They work to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and ease the pain away.
4. Paraffin Wax Therapy
Paraffin wax therapy is a special type of heat therapy that works by tipping the injured area into paraffin wax. This is done several times until a thick enough layer has been built up, at which point the heat will be allowed to penetrate deep into the tissue gently.
5. Electrical Muscle Stimulation
EMS is ideal for those who are experiencing twitches and pain in their muscles. It is often used for those with sports injuries, but those who have been in a car accident can also benefit from the stimulation offered in this treatment.
6. Infrared Therapy
Infrared therapy works to use the power of the sun, without the damages. The sun works to promote healthy cells and regeneration. Unfortunately, when you are outside you also have to deal with UV radiation. With infrared therapy, you don’t need to worry about UV, and can instead benefit from deep-tissue relief.
7. Deep Tissue/Swedish Massage Therapy
We offer a variety of massage therapy options to help ease away stiffness in your muscles, work out pain, and to encourage circulation to the affected area.
8. Medical Pain Management Injections
One of the unique treatments that we offer to our clients are our pain management injections. We have two doctors who specialize in this type of pain management on board who will be able to discuss the benefits and work with you to determine if they are a good fit.
We can treat your injuries and old pains alike. Call us or make an appointment online to get started with your recovery.
Various situations may leave you requiring chiropractic treatment. You may have injured yourself at home or suffered a strain injury in the gym, for example. Your injuries may also be the result of a vehicle or work-related accident. In these circumstances, it is natural to feel concerned about how you are going to afford treatment.
In the US, a surprising amount of the population is living with chronic back pain, and it is estimated that Americans will be involved in at least two car accidents by the time they are 34. While these statistics might not be causally related, the physical trauma caused by both can be helped. Visiting an
While no one ever wants to get into a car accident, most are minor with very few to no injuries. But there are always going to be more severe ones that may result in fatalities. In between these minor and major accidents are those which result in seemingly inconsequential joint and back pain that turns
