Parking Lot Injuries in Fort Lauderdale and Miami
December 12, 2021

While Christmas shopping should be fun, it can be not only stressful but dangerous. More people shopping means more cars and more parking lot injuries. Just because vehicles don’t travel at high speeds in parking lots doesn’t mean you can’t suffer serious injuries. In fact, whiplash and other injuries can occur at speeds as low as 5 mph.

If you’ve been injured and need a car accident chiropractor, the Accident Recovery Team at County Line Chiropractic Medical & Rehab Centers can help.

Common Parking Lot Injuries

Some common types of parking lot injuries include:

  • Pedestrian injuries. Children, in particular, can be difficult for distracted drivers to see due to their small size and tendency to dart around. Even at a low speed, a pedestrian being hit by a car may suffer serious injuries.
  • Rear-end injuries. In the hunt for a parking spot, one driver may need to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting a pedestrian, and a vehicle following too closely may then hit the other vehicle because they couldn’t stop in time.
  • T-bone injuries. Even drivers who use backup cameras may not see other drivers approaching as they back out of a parking spot, leading to t-bone injuries.
  • Truck collision injuries. More shopping means more product deliveries, meaning more trucks need to navigate around busy parking lots, leading to truck collision injuries.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Recover From Parking Lot Injuries

Chiropractic care from County Line Chiropractic Medical & Rehab Centers includes a unique combination of treatments designed specifically for you and your injuries. Some of our therapies that may be included in your customized care plan may include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments restore proper joint function and relieve nerve interference by moving bones into proper alignment.
  • Massage therapy complements chiropractic adjustments. Adjustments make it easier for massages to affect the body and massages can increase the effectiveness and prolong the effects of a chiropractic adjustment.
  • Ultrasound involves a wand with a special crystal that vibrates quickly and creates ultrasound waves, which are directed at your injured area. Non-invasive and painless, these waves create heat which increases blood flow. The improved blood flow decreases swelling and improves your range of motion.
  • Physical therapy shows you exercises and activities unique to your stage of recovery that will help you adapt to the physical changes in your body and get back to your normal routine.
  • Electrical muscle stimulation involves sending light electrical pulses to muscles around your problem area, which can reduce inflammation and muscle spasms, resulting in less pain.
  • Kinesio taping helps support weak muscles without limiting your mobility.
