The answer here is simple, it is never too soon. After experiencing an accident, you should visit a chiropractor as soon as possible to assure your spinal health is still in tact. This blog describes the common injuries experienced after an accident, how chiropractic care can help aid in the healing process, and how Florida law dictates the situation should be handled.
When beginning chiropractic treatment, you may be confused as to how many treatment sessions you'll be required to undergo. What are you expected to do once you receive a diagnosis?

It's no secret that driving in Florida is not the safest thing in the world. In fact, Broward County was the site of the second highest number of crashes reported in Florida.

Similar to the confusion involved between chiropractic care and massage therapy, many individuals are unsure whether their pain would be best suited for a chiropractor or a physical therapist.

Though they may share a common goal, each practice has its own benefits and a patient may require a combination of treatments to assess and prevent injuries.
