You can go almost your whole life without getting into an auto accident, and then BAM! It happens. It’s unpredictable, and it really can affect anyone. Maybe even enough to ruin your life.
While your first instinct might be to worry about your car being totaled, the real concern should be about your own health. Even the slowest of driving speeds in an accident can lead to long-term injury and suffering. Although you might feel fine in the immediate aftermath, but you very well could have a small headache several days later, have your hands go numb, and then can’t even be comfortable when lying down. That’s known as whiplash, which is a very common injury found in auto-accident victims that is treatable by Atlanta’s Chiropractors.
In most cases, a person can fully recover from injuries obtained in an auto accident. Yet, up to 20 percent of people who don’t receive proper care still suffer from their ailments two years after the accident. Full recovery isn’t guaranteed.
Neck pain is the most common symptom of whiplash, while other symptoms include headaches, numbness, dizziness, tingling in the limbs and lower back pain. Luckily for you, these are symptoms that Atlanta’s Chiropractors treat every day. So, if you get into a car accident, we recommend you come see us as soon as possible so we can evaluate you and come up with a treatment plan.
Chiropractic care is the most effective form of treatment for auto accident injuries, especially whiplash. A Chiropractor uses a variety of different techniques in order to help you recover from your pain. This recovery includes proper, pain-free spine movement, as well as a reduction in tension and stress in whatever muscles were injured in the wreck.
The estimated recovery window of whiplash is 3-9 months, but that’s only with proper Chiropractic care. To get on the path of recovery, contact us at (404) 889-8828 to make an appointment.
