Car accident injuries can have long lasting effects on your health, even low impact collisions.

Seeing a chiropractic doctor after you have been injured in a car accident will help you get the treatment you need. Chiropractic care can safely eliminate pain, inflammation and tension. When you combine proper rehabilitation and spine strengthening, you have a better chance to heal properly and more quickly.

The chiropractors at Gulf Coast Pain Institute can diagnose soft tissue injuries immediately and treat them expeditiously. Soft tissue injuries are what the majority of people suffer in auto accidents. Many people will go to the ER following an auto accident. In many cases they are released with prescriptions and no rehabilitative treatment. Prescriptions are a short term solution for a potential long term nagging injury. At Gulf Coast Pain Institute we know it’s important to realize that doctors in the ER don’t specialize in auto injury rehabilitation; their main function is to rule out life threatening situations, we can help.
