If you have ridden a bicycle for any length of time, you’re probably aware that bicycle accidents are very common – especially here in Miami. Going out on your bike means putting yourself at risk of everything from the minor scrapes that might result from a simple fall to far more severe injuries that can occur if a car hits you or you are otherwise thrown from the bike.
Sometimes, drivers do not operate their vehicle with the level of care and attention as required of them. They may strike a bicyclist while changing lanes or cut in front of a bicyclist without allowing the bicyclist time to stop or change directions. Other times, drivers may strike a bicyclist who is riding in a bike path or even crossing the street in the crosswalk. Bicycle crashes are quite common; statistics show that more than 500,000 people visit the US emergency rooms each year due to bicycle accidents.
One of the biggest misconceptions is that only high-speed traffic accidents can cause damage. Bicycle accidents can cause a serious damage to your body, and if not treated on time, can result in lifelong issues. If you have been in a bicycle accident in Miami, a knowledgeable, experienced chiropractor can help you recover from any injuries you might have sustained and get you back on your bike again!
Why You Should Get Chiropractic Care If You Have Been in a Bicycle Accident
Bicycle accident injuries are common causes of trauma to the central nervous system and spine. The symptoms might not be felt right after the accident, so if you have been in an accident, make sure you’re visiting a chiropractor right away for a comprehensive body evaluation. Through thorough examination techniques, we at Miami Accident Center will detect even the smallest damage to your supportive tissues and can also identify spinal misalignment – also known as subluxations. Keep in mind that a nervous system damage might not be noticeable until days, weeks, or even months after the accident, so if left untreated, your condition can worsen, leading to dysfunction of the nervous system and spinal degeneration.
Concussions From A Bicycle Accident
One area of special concern when it comes to bicycle accidents injuries is concussion. Concussion symptoms include:
- Neck pain
- Restricted neck motion
- Ringing in the ears
- Trouble with balance
- Not being able to concentrate
- Numbness in your extremities
