Local Atlanta Whiplash Chiropractor

There are over 342,534 car accidents each year in the state of Georgia, some are minor and others more severe, but an auto accident may also lead to Whiplash and Neck Injuries.

The chiropractors at Arrowhead Clinic have experience treating a broad range of neck pain and soft tissue injuries, as well as chronic pain. 

Neck pain ordinarily occurs when your car is rear-ended during an Auto Accident because of the violent changes within the structures of the head and neck.

The sudden backward jolt (extension) and forward action (flexion) causes the joints of the neck to be injured and can also cause the ligaments and muscles, and soft tissues of the head, neck, and upper back to

  • Overstretch
  • 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 rear-ended car collision, or a car accident, you need a professional to examine the severity of your injury.

An auto accident that causes whiplash needs immediate chiropractic care.

Whiplash is a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip. Whiplash is most commonly associated with rear-end car accidents.  

The pain can be felt in the neck and upper back.

It is recommended to see a chiropractor within 14 days of your whiplash, the sooner you can begin medical care the faster you can eliminate pain symptoms.

Our Whiplash Chiropractors utilizing chiropractic techniques, adjustments, and exercises help our patients get back to living a pain-free life. 

You should see a doctor immediately if you believe you have suffered whiplash after an automobile accident or bad slip and fall.

Even if the accident was minor, you should still get your neck and the rest of your spine evaluated for subluxations and inflammation.

After making sure that your cervical spine is stable, there are 4 main treatments that our Atlanta chiropractors use to help treat whiplash.

These include:

  • Manual Manipulations or Chiropractic Adjustments
  • Muscle relaxation/Massage and Electrical stimulation
  • Various exercises to ensure proper mobility Ergonomic
  • Lifestyle changes, like exercises, to perform at home, to make sure the issue is corrected for the long term.

Our treatments are aimed to provide you pain relief and help you get back to a pain-free life.

Depending on the severity of your injury, whiplash symptoms and pain may last only a few days or may continue for up to a month. 

It is important to seek treatment as soon as possible so that your injury does not turn into a long-term issue.

Recovery time depends on how serious your whiplash is. Some cases can resolve in a few treatments. But other neck strains may take weeks or longer to heal. Remember that everyone heals at a different rate.

Once the acute symptoms of neck strain are gone, your chiropractor will want you to start your rehabilitation.

Whiplash injury is not only limited to a neck injury but also brainstem injury that does not involve direct damage to the neck or head.

The symptoms of whiplash injury are polymorphous, with the most common complaints being cervical pain, headache, and scapulodynia. Vertigo and dizziness are also reported in 25–50% of the cases.

The most common cause of whiplash is being involved in a rear-end car collision.

The violent force of your head rapidly moving forward and then shifting backward causes neck strain.

Whiplash is best treated by chiropractors who are specifically training in dealing with motor vehicle accident injuries.

They have the experience through their chiropractic techniques to help provide pain relief and help you get your natural range of motion back. 

Back pain, especially in the lower back, may also indicate a whiplash-related injury.

It also could signal another condition like a sprain, herniated disc, or other soft-tissue injuries (such as muscle damage). If accompanied by tingling or numbness, it could also point to pinched nerves.

No, whiplash injuries are not permanent.

If you come to our office and get proper diagnostics and treatment done, whiplash injuries can be resolved quickly.

Yes, while more difficult than a rear-end collision, the impact caused by a front-end collision can result in whiplash injuries.

Yes of course, rear-end car collisions are the most common cause of whiplash injuries.

Common symptoms of whiplash include, Pain, decreased range of motion, and tightness in the neck. The muscles may feel hard or knotted. Pain when rocking your head from side to side or backward and forward. Pain or stiffness when moving your head to look over each shoulder. Tenderness. Headaches at the base of the skull that radiate towards the forehead.

While seeing an attorney is a good step after a whiplash injury, they will not be able to help you without proper medical documentation of your injuries. That is why you should come to our Atlanta whiplash treatment facility first.

Soft tissue injuries like whiplash do not show up on x-rays analysis or leave any mark that can be photographed. Even in MRI results, whiplash can be difficult to determine. So, the primary means of proving that you have suffered a whiplash injury is your chiropractor’s diagnosis and testimony. This makes it very important to visit a skilled chiropractor promptly after your car accident. Sometimes whiplash injuries take a few days or weeks to be felt, so if you develop new pain after the accident you need to go back to the doctor to get it documented.

No! Even at slow speeds, you can still get whiplash from a car accident. Whiplash is a neck injury that is caused by a forceful, rapid movement of your neck being forced back and forth, which can still happen at slow speeds.

Once again it is hard to determine how much you will receive for a whiplash settlement, it is critical to get evaluated by a chiropractor experienced with whiplash injuries.
