The Role of Our Atlanta Chiropractors When Treating Car Accident Injuries
Apr 21, 2017

When your head jolts backward during a car accident, the chance for your neck to sustain significant tissue damage is high.

Considering that Whiplash Injury is the most common condition accident victims sustain, it makes sense that so many people throughout Atlanta continue to visit our clinic for Chiropractic treatment.

Although most accident victims initially visit their primary physician, many are prescribed appropriate pain medications that only mask their symptoms, opposed to treating the source of their condition.

Once these medications wear off or once your body adapts to the medication, you are left with having to increase your dosages or consider surgical options.

Chiropractic Treatment For Car Accident Injuries

Instead of exposing yourself to potentially addictive drugs or invasive surgery, seeing one of our experienced Atlanta car accident injury Chiropractors is a safe and viable alternative to traditional approaches to medicine.

The following information highlights how Chiropractors help accident victims recover from common injuries and return to their routine.

Whiplash Injury

The force involved in a car crash causes your neck tissue to extend beyond its limits and tear.

The problem with Whiplash Injury is that its associated symptoms often do not appear for several weeks to a few months, leaving victims confused when they do start to notice significant pain, stiffness, and soreness.

Because of this, it is imperative that you seek Chiropractic treatment as soon as you can following a car accident. Doing so allows you to understand what type of injuries you have sustained, while also receiving appropriate treatment that prevents chronic or permanent damage.

Atlanta Chiropractic Treatment for Car Accident Injuries and Whiplash 

If your neck becomes misaligned because of the impact of your car accident, it takes a Chiropractor to put everything back into the right position essentially.

This is what Chiropractic Adjustments offer and only Chiropractors are specifically trained to treat conditions that affect your musculoskeletal system.

By carefully and gently moving your misaligned joints back into place, our Chiropractors can reduce the amount of pressure that’s placed on your neck, help increase blood flow to help repair all damage, and reduce inflammation that causes significant pain.

In addition to ongoing adjustments, our Chiropractors can also offer you a number of strength-building exercises that help your muscles recover from your accident, while also improving your flexibility and endurance.
