Our Personal Injury treatment process at Orlando Central Chiropractic?
Xrays and Examinations– Our chiropractor will take X-ray images of the patient’s neck, spine, and pelvis to determine any fractures or dislocations that may exist. He or she will then examine the patient to make sure there aren’t any signs of spinal cord compression or nerve root irritation. All examinations and x-rays done by our office are well documented, providing
Spinal Manipulation or Chiropractic Adjustments – After taking Xray and examining the patient, our chiropractor will perform manual adjustments on the patient’s spine and extremities to relieve pressure on the nerves and muscles. This allows the patient to feel better and begin healing sooner. The goal of this type of treatment is to restore normal spinal motion and reduce inflammation so that the healing process can begin.
Physical therapy– Physical therapy is another treatment option available at Tampa Central Chiropractic. It involves exercises designed to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility. Our chiropractor will work closely with you to ensure that you receive the best treatment plan based on your individual needs after an accident. The combination of spinal manipulation and physical movements helps to speed up the recovery time.
Freaquently Asked Questions
Do I need to be referred by a personal injury attorney to get treatment for my injuries?
No you do not. In fact if you have recently been injured in an accident due to someone’s negligence and don’t have an attorney to represent you, we can help you find one to look at your case.
Why should I see a chiropractor durring my personal injury case rather than a general practitioner?
Chiropractors are specifically trained in treating and diagnosing different injuries without the use of drugs or invasive procedures, making them a better first option after a personal injury. General practitioners will often refer injured patients to an outside specialist which can delay the start of your treatment and proper injury documentation for your case.
Do Chiropractors work with other Doctors?

If you have been injured in an accident you should see a chiropractor right away, and to make sure you do not miss your PIP benefits the law requires that you seek medical treatment within 14 days after the accident. But no matter when the accident occurred and you’re in pain, you can come see us to get treatment.
What will the appointments cost me out of pocket?
In most cases your treatments will be covered by PIP (personal injury protection) insurance if you or the other party at fault have the proper insurance coverage. If PIP is not an option, your health insurance will likely cover the cost of treatment if its deemed necessary. If Insurance is not an option, we provide affordable options and usually provide first time patient visit discounts as low as $35.
