What are some things that EVERY patient should get after a car accident? What are some things that NO patient should get?
With so many commercials and billboards from attorneys talking about auto accidents, it can be easy to lose sight of the most important thing….YOUR HEALTH!!! Dealing with the aftermath of an auto accident is something that many people will have to experience at some point. Unfortunately, we’re often so worried about getting our cars fixed, we sometimes forget to take care of our bodies.
At Nightlight Chiropractic we follow best practices for our patients who have been in an auto accident. Aside from our multi-modal approach to soft tissue injury and pain we routinely order MRI’s of the spine and coordinate care with at least one other specialist to ensure every potential injury has been examined, documented, and treated. The proper diagnosis AND prognosis (what we expect from YOUR injury) are what sets our care apart. Our office staff will help to coordinate every part of your difficult situation following an accident: from arranging transportation when necessary to scheduling evening appointments, and even helping you to find the right attorney. Also, no one wants to risk losing their job! So a long time ago, we decided to be open late. There’s no need to lose part of your day to visit us, we’ll be here when your workday ends.

If you’ve suffered an injury outside of work, such as a slip and fall, you need to make sure that your health is cared for properly. No matter what the accident may have been, you can’t be sure what kinds of ongoing, underlying issues may be present after the accident takes place. Chiropractors are professionals at finding these underlying issues.
Much like auto accidents, it’s easy to ignore your own problems and try to move on with your life after a personal injury accident. In fact, most people trust that the emergency room will look after your health. Without taking anything away from their care (that’s where we’d go for a broken bone), their job is to make sure your injuries aren’t life-threatening and then send you out. Occasionally, smaller issues can be missed in traditional medicine arenas, and you could be aggravating something that could become worse by not getting it looked at. Consult with a chiropractor and find out if there’s anything that’s been missed.
It doesn’t matter if you play in an evening league with your friends or if you’re a professional athlete for one of Orlando’s top sports teams, Nightlight Chiropractic is here to help you heal after an injury suffered during an athletic activity.
Chiropractors have specific training in athletic injuries that makes them incredibly capable of helping athletes heal after hurting themselves. Also, their training allows them to aid athletes in preventing injury as well. Often, athletes go to their primary care doctors, who may not be as well-versed in athletic injuries. Do you see yourself spending more time on the bench or with ice packs after every game, instead of being out there on the court or in the field? Don’t get sidelined by injury, instead get out ahead of it proactively so you can perform at your peak.
More than traditional medicine, chiropractic care is closely related to what an athlete needs because of the specific attention we give to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Chiropractic care also ensures that all parts of the musculoskeletal system are working to their fullest. Get the care you need for your athletic life at Nightlight Chiropractic.
