It can take several weeks to a few months for a car accident to produce noticeable symptoms like chronic pain or stiffness.
Many common car accident injuries have the potential to cause other chronic conditions or permanent damage if left untreated. Because of this, it is highly recommended to follow through with a Chiropractic examination within 48 hours of a car accident to diagnose and treat underlying conditions that may exist.
Using state-of-the-art imaging devices, our Atlanta Chiropractors can review your condition and provide personalized treatment that helps alleviate your symptoms.
Most car accident victims experience neck, shoulder, and lower back pain following their collision. Common symptoms range from dizziness and tinnitus to fatigue and soreness.
To determine the most appropriate treatment for your condition, you will need to follow through with a complete examination. Examinations are safe, painless, and allow your Chiropractor to review your injuries without having to rely on surgical tactics.
X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans are often used to develop a clear or complete view of a patient’s injury and are available at our Atlanta Chiropractic Clinic. Although each patient requires a personalized treatment plan that’s tailored to fit the characteristics of their symptoms, massage therapy, physiotherapy, and manual adjustments are often used to help accident victims.
Depending on your condition, your Atlanta Chiropractor may recommend using a combination of solutions to reduce inflammation, restore mobility, and relieve pain. You may also require a series of ongoing adjustments that spans over several months in order to recover without the risk of relapse.
If you are involved in a car accident, the best response is to follow up with professional Chiropractic care. Minor injuries can easily develop into chronic or permanent conditions that prevent you from following through with your personal or professional obligations. Since most insurance policies cover the cost of Chiropractic Treatment, there is no reason to avoid meeting with our team.
