Three Reasons To Visit An Atlanta Chiropractor After A Car Accident
Jul 19, 2017

If you find yourself in the middle of a car accident, it’s imperative to seek Chiropractic Treatment as soon as possible.

Although you may be able to tell whether you are injured immediately, there are a variety of common car accident injuries that are not as obvious as others.

Atlanta Chiropractic For Accident Injuries

In fact, car accident injuries like Whiplash and tissue damage may not produce noticeable symptoms for several weeks after the collision took place.

Our Atlanta Chiropractors can examine your condition and develop a personalized treatment plan to support your recovery, alleviate your pain, and help you return to your routine.

Atlanta Chiropractic Treatment For Whiplash and Tissue Damage

The force and impact of a car accident can cause your neck to lunge in multiple directions simultaneously. This type of uncontrolled movement can push the ligaments and tendons that surround your neck to stretch beyond their limits and tear.

The result of this is Whiplash Injury, and the symptoms connected to this condition include sharp pain, numbness, tingling, inability to move your neck or head, and headaches.

Our Atlanta Chiropractors can provide a complete examination to diagnose and understand the depth of your condition, while also providing a personalized treatment plan that aligns with the unique characteristics of your injury. Most cases of Whiplash Injury are treated with manual or Chiropractic Adjustments, heat or cryotherapy, stabilization, and rehabilitative exercises.

Atlanta Chiropractic Treatment For Back Pain

Soft tissue damage that affects the muscles, tendons, and ligaments are not as easy to diagnose and can quickly cause other chronic conditions if not treated right away.

Muscle sprains, strains, and torn tissue can cause significant pain and prevent car accident victims from following through with essential activities like walking or picking up objects.

Atlanta Chiropractors Provide Support For Personal Injury Claims

If you sustain severe injuries as a result of a car accident, you may need to follow through with a personal injury lawsuit to collect compensation for your damages. In this situation, one of the things you will need to present to a court is an official medical report that outlines the details and extent of your condition.

AICA Atlanta’s Chiropractors can create and provide you with a copy of your medical record, which can be used in court to justify your claim. Since Chiropractors specialize in treating conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, receiving an official medical report from us can go a long way in determining the outcome of your case.

In addition to an official medical report, we can also connect you with an experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney who can help guide you through the process of filing a lawsuit.
