Whiplash and Neck Pain from Car Accident Injuries

Successful Whiplash Treatment in Riverdale

If you have ever been involved in a car wreck, you may need the help of our experienced Riverdale Chiropractors.

There are thousands of car accidents every year in Georgia. Many accidents are minor and others more severe, but a large percentage of these accidents leave the victims suffering from symptoms of Whiplash and Neck Pain.

Many Whiplash injuries from motor vehicle accidents occur at speeds as low as five to ten mph. The severity of the injury usually depends on whether you are properly restrained. 

Atlanta Whiplash-1

Neck pain ordinarily occurs when the car is rear-ended during a collision because of the violent changes within the neck structures.

The sudden backward jerk and forward movement causes the joints of the neck to be injured and can cause the muscles and ligaments 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 many different directions. Arrowhead Clinics are designed specifically for people involved in Car Accidents and currently experiencing Whiplash and Neck Pain symptoms.

Whiplash Recovery 

With proper medical care, many mild whiplash injuries can heal within six to nine months. However, more than 20% of those who suffer from whiplash continue to experience discomfort, pain, weakness, or restricted movement up until two years after the accident. 

In many cases, the majority of those who suffer a whiplash injury, experience some level of disability or pain for many years into the future and sometimes for the rest of their lives.

Treating Whiplash injuries takes the skills of an experienced and highly trained Chiropractor who is trained to address these types of accident injuries.

Studies have shown that the most effective treatment for whiplash injuries is a mixture of chiropractic care, rehabilitation of the soft tissues and following the close instruction of an injury doctors orders. Some common long-term conditions may include: 

  • Loss of the Normal Cervical Curve 
  • Migraines 
  • Degenerative Joint Disease 
  • Tinnitus
  • Fatigue 
  • Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome 
  • Mid-Back Pain 
  • Visual Disturbances 
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Temporal Mandibular Degeneration 


How Does Arrowhead Clinic Treat Whiplash Injuries? 

  • Teaching Proper Posture: By keeping your neck, head, upper body and lower back aligned during movement and at rest, relieve stress on the neck.
  • Chiropractic Adjustments: This is necessary to realign bones of the spine and restore structural integrity to the ligaments, joints, and muscles.
  • Muscle Relaxation and Electrical Stimulation: Entails gentle pressure on certain sensory trigger points and electrical based stimulation to help with pain and improve the muscle function.
  •  Therapeutic Neck Stretches and Exercises: to improve muscle strength and range of motion our Riverdale Chiropractors show stretches and exercises to practice at home to improve your chances of a quick recovery.

Whiplash Legal Case

Your Car Accident Settlement After a Whiplash Injury 

The sudden and unexpected force of a collision causes the tendons, muscles, ligaments in the neck to become severely contracted. Neck strains and sprains can result in a soft tissue injury, known as whiplash.

Whiplash injuries are very common after being involved in a motor vehicle collision, whether it is severe or minor. That is because these soft tissue injuries usually do not show up on:

  • MRI's
  • X-rays
  • Other Diagnostic Tests 

This means if you fail to get your injuries treated properly by an experienced chiropractor you may lose the maximum compensation possible in the outcome of your settlement.

At Arrowhead Chiropractic Clinic, we provide the proper documentation to prove that your injuries were a direct result of your car accident. All of your losses and injuries need to be documented properly and as much as possible.

Providing bills and medical records that prove the extent of your injuries assist your personal injury attorney when trying to establish proof and credibility in your accident injury case. 

Medical treatment and the seriousness of your injuries are two of the most important considerations when it comes to the value of your accident injury settlement, and the value or your settlement will be weighed quite heavily on these two factors.

After a motor vehicle accident obtaining the proper medical care from an Accident Injury, Rehabilitative Clinic is essential for a fast recovery and favorable settlement amount.

Arrowhead Clinic is an awesome facility! If I could give them more than five stars I would because this has been the best experience since my accident. Dr. Howard and his team are always professional, but they are also very caring. I especially love Mrs. Tammy because she is always smiling with nothing but kind things to say.
