Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for auto accident injuries like whiplash, sports injuries, personal injuries and workplace injuries. This is because chiropractic care targets the root cause for a patient’s pain, rather than relying on medication to “cover up” pain symptoms. When the spine is out of alignment, a slipped or herniated disc may place pressure on nearby nerves, triggering pain. As long as this nerve compression persists, your pain will also continue. Chiropractic adjustments bring proper alignment back to the spin, alleviating pressure on the nerves and supporting whole body health from the inside out.
Whiplash is one of the most common car accident injuries – and Atlanta chiropractic care can help make a big difference for relieving your pain! A whiplash injury occurs when the force of a rear-impact auto accident abruptly “whips” the neck backwards and forwards, causing a misalignment in the spine. In addition to soreness and stiffness, this misalignment can also lead to chronic neck pain, headaches, migraines and other pain issues. Worse, traditional treatments like immobilizing the neck will actually make whiplash injuries worse by restricting blood flow that is needed to heal the muscles. Like with all injuries, our chiropractor begins the treatment process with a careful diagnostic assessment to identify the misalignment’s precise location. Our Atlanta chiropractor uses the results of this exam to create a customized treatment program to for our patient’s treatment specific needs.
