If you are in an auto accident, you might develop whiplash. That is when your head snaps back and then forward at a very high rate of speed. The result can be neck pain, which can be very unpleasant to deal with and can make day-to-day life hard.
After you have seen a doctor to make sure that you don't have any internal injuries, you might want to get help from someone who can get you back to where you were before you suffered whiplash: a chiropractor. A chiropractor on our team at Preferred Chiropractic & Wellness | Preferred Regen ATL in Atlanta, GA, is here to help.
The First Visit
A chiropractor on our team will want to know what the exact injury is, which is why we will look at your entire spine first. Yes, you might have neck pain, but we want to make sure that the whiplash is the true root cause of that pain.
Once we discuss your auto accident and examine you to ensure that it is, indeed, whiplash, then they can come up with a plan of treatment for you.
Their first step may be to get any inflammation down around the area where the whiplash occurred. There are several ways that we can do this, including ultrasound and gentle stretching of the area.
Then, over time, we may recommend treatments like trigger point therapy and/or non-surgical spinal decompression where we identify certain areas that are causing the pain and target those. We may use instruments as an aid. Our treatments should help you feel better after each subsequent visit.
Being in an auto accident and sustaining injury can be very frightening. You can feel better by discussing the treatments with a chiropractor on our team. When you see someone who is licensed in chiropractic, you can get care that is natural and non-invasive. Chiropractic care is also holistic. This means that chiropractic care seeks to treat the root cause of your pain rather than just the symptoms.
