Car accidents can be traumatic experiences, regardless of how fast you were driving at the time of the collision.
Getting into an accident while traveling at low speeds or under 30 miles per hour can cause a variety of injuries that range from Whiplash to back pain. Some injuries do not produce symptoms for several weeks, which is why it is important to receive Chiropractic Treatment within 72 hours of the collision.
Contact our Atlanta Chiropractors immediately following a car accident to schedule a complete examination.
Whiplash is one of the most common car accident injuries and is caused when the force of the collision stretches your neck tissue beyond its limits. If you notice any of the following symptoms, visit our Atlanta Chiropractic Clinic for treatment:
It’s important to understand that even if your vehicle does not appear to be damaged, it does not mean that you aren’t hurt. Bumpers absorb a significant portion of the force of an accident, but your body is still exposed to trauma that can cause tissue damage or other conditions.
You may not notice any kind of pain for a few weeks since injuries that affect the muscles, ligaments, and tendons can take time to appear. Unlike other forms of medicine, Chiropractic is designed to treat conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system – making them the most appropriate solution for car accident victims.
