Unfortunately, car accidents are an all too common occurrence in today's fast paced world. In fact, it is estimated that one car accident occurs every 5 seconds in the US. A majority of these accidents are thankfully non-fatal, but if you have ever been in an accident yourself, no matter the severity, you know how stressful it can be for everyone involved. Not only is it stressful, but it can all become a bit of a blur, and with the obvious damage to your car, it is easy to neglect the less visible damage that may have occurred within your own body. It is paramount that you take into consideration your own health and prioritize it, especially in the following hours and days of being involved in an accident. Chiropractors are experts in diagnosing damage to both hard and soft tissue. This is why one of the first items on your list to do after an accident should include a visit to your chiropractor!
How will chiropractic care help me after an auto accident occurs?
Whiplash, muscle injuries, minor back pain, disc damage, and ligament problems are all associated with auto accidents. Chiropractors know the signs to look out for when it comes to diagnosing these conditions. If you have recently been in an auto accident and you are experiencing shoulder pain, neck pain, blurred vision, headaches, arm pain, or reduced range of motion, it is time to visit your chiropractor right away. If left untreated, pain can become very intense and cause extreme stiffness which will lead to reduced ability to function normally. If pain continues to worsens, it can lead to the inability to complete simple but necessary daily tasks, such as going to work, completing household chores, driving, climbing steps, and even showering! Sometimes those that are injured don't feel any pain at all, but if the injury goes untreated, it ends up becoming a very serious problem later on. This is why you should never put your chiropractic evaluation last on the list after an accident. The car mechanic and insurance company can wait. Your overall health should always be your biggest priority.

Dr Sergio and Linda are amazingly caring people who care about my well-being and have been helping me keep working for the last two years! I am extremely grateful and would recommend him to anyone who needs quality help.
We came to see Dr Rocafort because of an injury. To be honest i have never been with a doctor like him. He listen and answer all your questions, he gives you recommendations for treatment plans. In my humble opinion he is the best chiropractor that i have ever been in more than 25 years.
