There are over 34,000 car accidents each year in the state of Georgia; some are minor and others more severe, but many of these accidents lead to Whiplash and Neck Injuries.
Many Whiplash injuries from vehicle accidents occur at speeds as low as five to 10 mph. The severity of the injury often depends on whether you are properly restrained.
Neck pain ordinarily occurs when your car is rear-ended during an Auto Accident because of the violent changes within the structures of the neck.
The sudden backward jerk (extension) and forward movement (flexion) causes the joints of the neck to be injured and can also cause the ligaments and muscles of the neck and upper back to be overstretched and go into spasm.
The neck is extremely vulnerable to this type of trauma because of its ability to move in multiple directions. If you have ever been in a rear-end car collision, and need a professional to examine the severity of the damage.

With the proper medical care, many mild whiplash injuries typically heal within six to nine months.
Unfortunately, more than 20% of those who suffer from whiplash injuries continue to suffer in pain, discomfort, weakness or restricted movement two years after their accident.
In most cases, the majority of these people will suffer from some level of disability or pain for years into the future, if not for the rest of their lives.
Treating Whiplash takes the skills of an experienced and specially trained health care professional who are trained to address these types of accident injuries.
Studies show the most effective treatment for whiplash injuries is a combination of chiropractic care, rehabilitation of the soft tissues and following the close instruction of an injury doctors orders.
Some of the common long-term conditions include:
The unexpected and sudden force of an automotive collision causes muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the neck to become powerfully contracted.
Severe neck sprains and strains can result in a "soft tissue injury," that is sometimes called "hyperextension" or "hyperflexion" also known as "whiplash."
These types of injuries are very common in car accidents both severe and minor, but they are also problematic from an injury claim perspective.
That's because these soft tissue type injuries typically do not show up on:
Which means if you fail to get your injuries properly treated by an experienced chiropractor you may lose the maximum compensation possible in the outcome of your settlement.
At Arrowhead Chiropractic Clinics we will provide the proper documentation necessary to prove your injuries and the medical treatment necessary for a full and optimal recovery.

Providing medical records and bills that prove the extent of your injuries will also assist your personal injury attorney with established proof and credibility in your accident injury case.
After a car accident, two of the most important factors that will be used to determine the value of your injury settlement are:
