ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rumley Family Chiropractic P.A., is reminding Florida residents that Florida is a “no fault” state, which means that the personal injury protection on a car insurance policy will cover chiropractic care. Insurance premiums cannot increase because an accident victim seeks medical care. Orlando chiropractor Dr. Matthew Rumley says that chiropractic care following a car accident injury can be beneficial for managing pain and helping the body heal quickly and safely. In order to receive insurance coverage for medical bills, patients must seek treatment within 14 days of their accident, according to a law that took effect on January 1, 2013.
Orlando chiropractor Dr. Matthew Rumley is reminding car accident victims that they have 14 days to seek treatment following a car accident. Dr. Rumley, who runs the Metro West, Florida, chiropractic practice Rumley Family Chiropractic P.A., says many accident victims do not realize that their existing car insurance policy covers their medical bills, but that they have only 14 days to initiate this treatment. A Florida law that went into effect on January 1, 2013 states that an individual has 14 days to seek medical care for their car accident injuries to receive insurance coverage for medical bills.
“For many patients, chiropractic care is an essential part of recovering following an accident injury,” said Dr. Rumley. “Unfortunately, some accident victims believe that chiropractic care is too expensive, won’t be covered by their insurance, or could cause their premiums to increase. Since Florida is a no-fault state, this means accident victims are fully covered following a car accident injury by the personal injury protection on their insurance policy. Affording needed care should never be a deterrent for seeking treatment.”
Dr. Rumley says whiplash injuries are one of the most common auto accident injuries that may cause pain for months after the accident. The chiropractor recommends immediate treatment which includes physiotherapies as well as adjustments to the spinal joints, to bring correct alignment back to the cervical spine following a whiplash injury, which relieves neck pain, headaches, stiffness and soreness. Dr. Rumley cautions that symptoms may not always be obvious immediately following the accident, which is why a diagnostic exam is so important.
“Chiropractic care delivers optimal pain management outcomes,” said Dr. Rumley. “Unlike pain management medication that only covers up pain symptoms, chiropractic care actually corrects the underlying mechanical cause for a patient’s pain. As a result, we find that our patients heal faster and experience less long-term pain than individuals who do not promptly seek chiropractic care.”
