Minor Car Accidents Still Require Chiropractic Treatment
Dec 10, 2018

There are numerous accidents that take place in our area daily. While sadly some are fatal, most result in minor hidden injuries.

If you are unsure if you have sustained an injury in a car accident, it is still important to be evaluated by a medical profession to determine if you have. Even a minor accident can result in a hidden injury that can result in serious damage, especially if you are improperly positioned in your vehicle at the time of the accident.

Expectation For Recovery

Most serious accidents result in an ER visit. Bruising and minor injury, of course, do not. Many people think that their minor injuries are going to heal on their own and they essentially ignore them. This is a terrible idea, as most of these minor injuries go undetected and can cause chronic problems.

Even if you feel like you are “fine” after an accident, it is important to follow up with one of our doctors to see if there are other hidden injuries you are not aware of. Many injuries, even minor, can lead to long term complications. Our chiropractors can help you evaluate and treat in a timely manner, eliminating any long-term affects you may sustain.

Diagnosing Accident Injuries

When working with our chiropractors, we will help examine and evaluate any injuries you may have, including any that were hidden.
Some symptoms you may expect to experience post-accident are sore neck, chest pain, or arm pain. These symptoms will vary from person to person which is why often identifying injuries can be so hard. Our chiropractors have the necessary training and experience to help diagnose and treat automobile accident injuries.

Our team will perform a comprehensive examination to identify any underlying health issues. Working closely with our Atlanta Chiropractors will help you find any underlying hidden injuries. Even if you are feeling fine, you may have sustained an injury that is not yet presenting itself. This is where a thorough examination by one of our chiropractors becomes most important.
