There are over 342,534 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 been in a rear-end car collision, you may need a professional to examine the severity of the damage.

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, specially-trained health care professional who is equipped 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 close instruction of an injury doctors orders.
Long-term conditions that may occur if your whiplash injuries are left untreated:
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 "hyperflexion" or "hyperextension" 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:

During my treatment with Arrowhead, I had a wonderful experience. The staff/doctor was nice, always greeting you with a smile, and great at making sure their patients were comfortable, which I loved. They also made their patients feel comfortable by creating a relationship with them, which also made treatments fun while getting better each and every visit.
