If you live in Atlanta and were recently involved in a car accident, the chances of sustaining Whiplash Injury are high. Unlike other accident injuries, Whiplash does not always produce noticeable symptoms for a few days to even a couple of months. This means that you may feel fine following a collision despite the possible existence of an underlying condition.
The best thing you can do to protect yourself from permanent damage or long-term health complications is to visit AICA Atlanta immediately following a car accident. Our Atlanta Chiropractors can diagnose conditions like Whiplash and provide personalized treatment that helps you return to your routine in no time.
Whiplash occurs when your head and neck are violently forced in multiple directions simultaneously. The impact associated with car accidents, even minor ones, can cause the ligaments and tendons around your neck to stretch beyond their limits and tear.
Everyone involved in an accident can sustain Whiplash regardless of where you are sitting or if you are wearing a seat belt. If left untreated, Whiplash can cause permanent damage in the form of limited mobility or chronic pain.
The Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta help hundreds of patients each year overcome Whiplash and can help you, too. By meeting with our Chiropractors, you can receive help from medical specialists who focus exclusively on the musculoskeletal system and know how to provide treatment without relying on prescription medications.
Although each patient is unique and requires a customized treatment plan, most accident victims receive manual or Chiropractic Adjustments for Whiplash. By realigning areas of your neck and spine that were forced out of position during your accident, our Chiropractors can stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Depending on the extent of your Whiplash Injury, you may only need a few Chiropractic Adjustments before making a complete recovery.
Car accidents happen every day in Atlanta, as well as throughout the greater region. If you are involved in an accident, contact the professionals at AICA Atlanta to schedule an immediate examination.
Allowing yourself to live in pain or trying to move on from your accident without receiving medical attention can cause other health complications over time. Protect yourself from possible impairments and chronic pain by scheduling an appointment with our Atlanta Chiropractic Clinic as soon as you are done speaking with the police following a collision.
