After sustaining injuries from a car accident, one thing you are going to be seeking is a solution to the pain. Florida’s Personal Injury Protection law or PIP law limits the amount of time that individuals have to receive Personal Injury Protection benefits following an accident. Unless you initiate treatment within 14 days, you will forfeit your right for medical treatment under PIP.
 
One of the most common injuries as a result of an accident is whiplash. Whiplash is an injury to the neck that is a result of your head being lashed back and forth in a quick motion, causing discomfort. Many issues can stem from whiplash, such as joint dysfunction and disc herniation. When whiplash occurs, the muscles and ligaments can tear or become lax, causing swelling that restricts ranges of motion, increasing pain.
 
If whiplash is not resolved, you can suffer from chronic pain, faulty movement patterns, or cognitive and higher center dysfunction. When the nervous system is impacted due to a change in the spine, the way it controls the coordinated function of muscles can cause intense pain signals from the whiplash injury. Mental functioning and difficulties concentrating are also possible because of this type of injury.
 
One way that many people are seeking relief is with chiropractic care. Chiropractors have studied the spine and the body for many years, as it is an ancient form of health care. After a chiropractor examines you, they can determine the best possible treatment for you.
 
This treatment can include manipulation, muscle relaxation or stimulation, various modalities, exercises, and lifestyle changes are utilized to get the required results. Spinal manipulation (adjustment) is one of the most popular benefits of chiropractic care. It involves the chiropractor moving the spinal segments that have joint restriction or misalignment into its proper position. This is what most people fear to be the painful experience, however it is not painful at all. Muscle relaxation and stimulation involve stretches to the injured muscle to help the muscle become pliable and able to move more freely. Exercises and lifestyle changes can help benefit your overall health as it improves any pain and gives an overall sense of satisfaction.
