It is impossible to anticipate being in a car accident, but of those that are unfortunate enough to be victim to one, nearly all will suffer negative physical effects of the incident. Be it a serious multi-vehicle crash or a minor fender bender, your body will absorb the shock of the crash. Jonesboro, GA Chiropractic treatment gives you personalized care to ensure the best outcome post car accident.
Common Car Accident Injuries
When treating car accident victims, our chiropractors most commonly see shoulder, neck and back injuries. Whiplash, a cervical spine injury that occurs from abrupt backward and forward motion of the neck, is a frequent injury treated by our chiropractors.
This is most commonly a result of a rear-end collision as the driver does not anticipate the accident. Muscle stiffness and pain can develop in not only the upcoming days but weeks following the incident. Anticipated accidents can also cause stiffness in the back, shoulder, and neck muscles as the driver will tense these up when realizing the impending crash.
Custom Chiropractic Treatment For Each Patient
Your chiropractic treatment after an accident will be fully customized to fit your injuries and specific needs. Some common treatments used by our chiropractors are muscle stimulation or relaxation therapy, targeted exercises, lifestyle adjustments to address ergonomic issues contributing to your pain, and the most common spinal manipulation. Each treatment will begin with a comprehensive consultation to determine the extent of your injuries and how best to relieve your pain and get your body on the path for full recovery.
The methods used to promote healing after a car accident will vary, but the overall importance of understanding and addressing the cause of the injury first is consistent. Many people turn to medications immediately after a car accident for immediate relief of the pain they are experiencing. This just masks the pain and does not treat the underlying cause. Our chiropractors will delve into the injuries sustained to get to the root of your pain.
