Atlanta Chiropractor Explains How Someone Might Have Whiplash in New Blog Post

June 01, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Arrowhead Clinic, a chiropractor clinic in Atlanta, Georgia, has recently published a blog post that explains how a person might have whiplash. The article is titled, “Your Atlanta Chiropractor Explains Why You Might Have Whiplash.” It explains that whiplash is a neck injury that occurs when the neck is subjected to a rapid back and forth motion that can be likened to the cracking of a whip. This usually occurs during a car accident where the muscles and ligaments of the neck are forced beyond their normal range of motion. The whiplash injuries may range in severity, from mild to severe. Nevertheless, it is always advisable to receive chiropractic treatment after incurring whiplash injury even if there are no symptoms. It should be noted that the symptoms may not appear immediately, and only appear after several hours or days.

There are a number of common indications that a certain person has whiplash injury. These include headaches, blurred vision, dizziness, sleep disturbances, irritability, difficulty concentrating, worsening pain with neck movement, fatigue, memory problems, and depression. While having any of the mentioned symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean that a person has whiplash injury, they are the likely symptoms people who have whiplash injury may experience.

Johnny Brown, a spokesperson for Arrowhead Clinic, says, “When you are involved in an accident, you should always seek medical treatment as quickly as possible. Chiropractors are your best choice, especially when dealing with a soft tissue injury like whiplash. If you have injuries like contusions or suspected broken bones, head to the Emergency Room. But if you have a whiplash injury, the ER might not diagnose you properly and simply hand you some pain medications.”

Pain medications can’t be used as a long term solution for whiplash injury. They simply cover up the pain that the patient is feeling, which can encourage people to put off the care they require. The problem with whiplash injury is that the longer a person delays treatment, the worse the injury may become. People may also suffer for a much longer period because they failed to receive the necessary treatment promptly. Even if there are no apparent symptoms, people are advised to seek chiropractic care in case the symptoms are just lying dormant.

The chiropractors at Arrowhead Clinic are experts in the treatment of whiplash injury because they have been performing it for many years. Those who have been involved in an accident are encouraged to seek treatment from an experienced chiropractor. The chiropractors at Arrowhead Clinic also offer free consultation to allow patients to realize how chiropractors may help them in recovering from whiplash injury.

Arrowhead Clinic has more than 40 years of experience treating motor vehicle accident injuries, neck and back pain, and slip and fall accident injuries. They also offer treatments for sports injuries and work injuries.

Slip and fall accidents may be due to slick and slippery surfaces, dangerous steps and stairs, or simply bad luck. Slip and fall injuries may come in the form of trauma to the muscles, joints, bones, and ligaments, or practically any part of the body. Those who are suffering from severe and chronic pain as a result of a slip and fall injury may notice that there are certain restrictions to how they spend their daily life. A chiropractor may help in such situations by performing in-depth evaluations to find out the root cause of the pain and provide targeted treatment.

The chiropractor can focus on issues involving the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, to help people deal with the sprains and strains, nerve pain, joint pain, neck pain, sciatica, back pain, and whiplash. They only make use of natural and safe non-invasive treatment methods. These methods may alleviate the pain, increase the range of motion, and help the body heal itself naturally.

When requiring the services of a whiplash chiropractor Atlanta, Georgia residents may want to visit the Arrowhead Clinic website, or contact them through the telephone or via email. They are open from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday to Friday.
