If you are involved in a car accident while driving through Atlanta, it’s important to pay attention to how your body responds.
Depending on the injury, your body may not produce visible symptoms for several weeks to a few months after the accident took place. Injuries like Whiplash produce symptoms that can seem to be unrelated, causing accident victims to believe that they are only suffering from minor aches or pain rather than a critical condition.
If you are struck by another vehicle, contact our Atlanta Chiropractors to schedule a complete examination as soon as possible.
If anything does arise, make sure to contact our Atlanta Chiropractic Clinic as soon as possible to prevent other chronic conditions or permanent damage from developing.
The following information highlights common symptoms related to car accident injuries.
Headaches that develop after a car accident are often a signal that other, more dangerous conditions exist that deserve immediate Chiropractic Treatment.
Headaches are often indicative of a blood clot or a concussion in cases of car accidents, both of which can be fatal if not treated properly and right away. If you notice recurring headaches taking place following a car accident, call AICA Atlanta to schedule an immediate examination.
This type of pain usually suggests the existence of an internal injury.
Internal bleeding is extremely dangerous and can develop within a few hours of a car accident, or a few days after. If you notice deep bruising around your abs, start to faint, or are only lightheaded, call 911 as soon as possible.
Back pain is one of the most common conditions sustained as a result of a car accident and may not appear for several days to a few weeks following the incident.
Most prevalent among those who are involved in rear-end collisions, almost 75 percent of all accident victims experience some level of low back pain due to a sprain or strain. Unlike other car accident symptoms, back pain is not associated with fatal consequences, although it can be debilitating depending on the extent.
Back pain can be easily treated with common Chiropractic techniques like manual adjustments, deep tissue massage, and heat therapy.
If you are involved in a car accident and experience any one of these symptoms, call the Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta to prevent further damage from taking place.
