Auto Accidents

auto accidents - neck painAuto accidents are chaotic, and in the flurry of activity immediately afterward the focus on fixing broken vehicles and major injuries can sometimes lead to the missed diagnosis of auto accident injury. Whether someone is seen by emergency personnel at the scene of the auto accident or in the emergency room later, injuries from auto accidents are often missed, with symptoms of these injuries manifesting weeks or even months later.

Why It Is Important to Seek Medical Attention

After an accident, even a person who has been cleared of the need for injury treatment should pay attention to the body's signals. Neck or back pain, strain and stiffness, muscle spasms, or other symptoms may be the result of an undiagnosed car accident injury.

Having a doctor determine the cause of these symptoms is important, in order to determine if physical rehabilitation would be beneficial. Our chiropractors in Atlanta can perform a thorough examination to find the source of each patient's pain, in order to design a course of treatment uniquely customized for each unique situation. Using chiropractic, physical therapy, massage therapy, and other holistic healing practices, Georgia Accident Rehab Centers helps patients recover from auto accident injuries and achieve optimal health and wellness.

Treatment for Whiplash Injuries

Whiplash injuries are one of the most common injuries that occur to people after accidents. This occurs when the neck becomes hyperextended and strained, such as when the neck is suddenly jerked forward or backward. This happens most frequently because the impact to a vehicle is so sudden, forcing the muscles to stretch. Some of the most serious cases of whiplash may also involve other injuries, such as a concussion, that will need greater medical attention.

Some of the most common symptoms of whiplash injuries:

  • Limited range of motion
  • A feeling of tightness or tenderness in the neck
  • Painful feelings when moving the head from side to side
  • Headaches that begin at the base of the head and move towards the forehead

At Atlanta Pain & Rehab, we understand that countless numbers of people suffer whiplash injuries after an auto accident, but are not receiving the proper care or treatment. Our specialty is helping people after accidents, and we want to ensure that you are given the right amount of care, and not forced to suffer from any troubling long-term effects.
