Auto Accident and Personal Injury Care in Fruit Cove

We Can Help

Even a minor fender bender can produce spinal misalignment and whiplash. It may take a day or two, however, or even months for symptoms to appear. The longer you wait to be evaluated and examined after a personal injury, the more hidden damage can accumulate. It can also take substantially longer to recover.

At ChiroMed of Jacksonville, we provide our practice members with the finest in emergency medical treatment and recovery chiropractic care. The two sciences combined produce immediate pain relief as well as comfortable spinal correction.

Common Auto Accident Injury Questions:

What happens to the neck during a car accident?
The impact of a crash usually causes the head to jerk forward and backward. The sudden force creates spinal misalignment in the neck and microscopic tearing of attached muscles and ligaments. Because the neck is one of the most nerve-rich areas of your spine, problems here can cause problems throughout the body.

Why is it important to seek medical care and chiropractic treatment for these injuries?
Immediate emergency trauma care is necessary to evaluate your condition through specific diagnostic testing. Urgent care is also helpful in reducing pain and inflammation levels through medication or trigger point injections.
