CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR YOUR CAR ACCIDENT INJURIES & PERSONAL INJURIES
When to See a Chiropractor After a Car Accident?
If you have been in an accident, it is vital that you see a chiropractor within 14 days of the accident. Underlying musculoskeletal injuries can compromise your range of motion, leave you with lingering pain weeks or even months after the accident, and affect your comfort and quality of daily life.
After an accident, our chiropractor will perform a thorough medical examination to determine the source of injury. Then, we will focus on techniques that reduce inflammation and soothe pain. Patients often begin to feel better after initial treatments, and report less pain overall.
Once we have addressed your pain and inflammation, we will then tailor adjustments to improve the range of motion of the affected area. Finally, we will help you strengthen and stretch the joints and muscles to get you back to optimal health.
We can help you heal fully from car accident injuries including back pain, neck pain, joint pain, chronic headaches, spinal disc injury, and whiplash. Our staff will also demonstrate stretching and strengthening exercises that can help you restore strength and flexibility to the affected area.
Don't delay after an auto accident. Your car insurance will pay for you to get chiropractic, since Florida is a no fault state. This makes seeking chiropractic treatment after an Winter Park car crash a no-brainer. Call us today at 407-277-0046 we'll get you on the road to recovery!

At Rumley Family Chiropractic P.A, we have extensive experience treating Winter Park victims of car accidents and helping individuals who experience neck and back pain. We can help you recover from stiffness, soreness, and chronic pain through gentle and non-invasive chiropractic adjustments.
Why See a Chiropractor After a Car Accident?
A car accident places your musculoskeletal system under an intense amount of pressure. Even an accident at low speeds of 5 to 10 miles per hour subjects your body to a very high level of strain. Yet, many people do not seek medical attention after a car accident. Instead, they go home to rest and ice and then continue with their lives.
Chiropractic treatment is gentle and effective for individuals of all ages. Unlike traditional car accident treatment, our adjustments are holistic and treat your entire body, not just affected areas.
Chiropractic treatment also soothes and heals without the use of prescription medication. These medications do not really treat your pain; they just mask it so you are able to feel more comfortable while the medication is in your system.
We can treat your underlying source of pain to deliver real, lasting relief. Our chiropractor, Dr. Matthew Rumley, has years of experience with different chiropractic techniques and can select the right method to treat your needs.
WHY 14 DAYS?
The new PIP law, effective January 1, 2014, requires victims who are involved in motor vehicle accidents to seek medical treatment within fourteen (14) days in order to receive personal injury protection benefits. If you do not receive initial medical services and care within fourteen (14) days after your motor vehicle accident, you will not be entitled to any PIP benefits. What this means is that the $10,000.00 in coverage that you pay for with your insurance company will not be paid for at all if you do not obtain initial medical treatment or care within fourteen (14) days following a motor vehicle accident.
The state of Florida is a no fault state meaning the personal injury protection policy on your car insurance will cover your chiropractic therapy. This type of coverage pays for all of therapies we provide at our office to make your body stronger and make you feel better. And don't worry, your insurance premiums cannot increase due to receiving medical care.
Spinal Decompression Therapy for Personal Injury
When your spine has been thrown off balance due to an injury, it can cause a host of symptoms. Pain is the most significant effect of an injury. You may experience discomfort in your back, your legs, your neck and your arms. Tingling or numbness can be a result of your injury, as well.
With spinal decompression therapy, you can experience relief from the symptoms that have resulted from your injury. You can improve your range of motion and return to normal activities. Most importantly of all, you can stop the pain.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is effective in treating back pain, neck pain and sciatica caused by bulging, herniated and degenerative discs, facet syndrome and spinal stenosis. Even post surgical patients have reported significant pain relief from spinal decompression treatments.
Spinal decompression therapy works by relieving pressure on discs in your back, allowing your spine to become balanced once more. You may have the option of lying flat on your back while computerized technology relieves pressure on your spine, allowing your spine to become decompressed.
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy after a Car Accident

With this treatment option, you may be able to see significant improvement in the limitations you are experiencing.
Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated.
