Atlanta Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injury
An auto accident can cause a lot of distress, both emotionally and physically. Working with our chiropractic physician helps address all types of distress by influencing the nervous system for total body healing. If you live in the greater Decatur and Atlanta area and were recently in a car crash, we encourage to schedule an appointment with us at Alpha Pro Wellness Center.
An Auto Accident Can Lead to These Common Injuries
Auto accidents can lead to various types of acute physical trauma, including bruises, muscle strains, ligament sprains, joint dislocations, spinal disc herniations or bulges, and nerve compression syndromes. We most often see these issues in the upper and lower spine, which can cause back pain, neck pain, neck stiffness, shoulder pain, headaches, and more.
Whiplash, a neck pain syndrome caused by sudden whip-like movements of the head and neck, can happen in car accidents involving speeds as slow as 10 miles per hour.
Even the psychological and emotional stress caused by auto accidents can show up as dysfunction in the body, by increasing muscle tension and disrupting sleep.
Without early and effective treatment, these various auto accident injuries may progress into chronic problems with pain, stiffness, and impaired mobility.
Why You Should See Our Atlanta Chiropractor after an Auto Accident
One interesting thing to know about auto accident injuries is that their signs and symptoms often don't show up right away. Stress hormones that get released during traumatic events can block pain signals. These hormones may take some time to return to their normal resting levels, allowing underlying tissue damage to remain hidden.
This means it's possible to walk away from an accident feeling "perfectly fine," only to be laid up in bed days later with debilitating back pain.
Avoid this delayed discomfort by seeking chiropractic care right away. Our Atlanta chiropractor Dr. Faheem Nasir can identify hidden signs of tissue damage and nervous system dysfunction, then initiate earlier treatment for proactive healing.
Using evidence-backed chiropractic care techniques like spinal adjustments and spinal decompression therapy, Dr. Nasir helps hundreds of men, women, and children find relief from back injuries, whiplash, and other problems following auto accidents. Spinal decompression therapy is especially beneficial because it provides real-time pain relief, restores spinal alignment, alleviates compression on spinal nerves, and creates gentle, negative pressure around spinal discs to improve their alignment and attract healing fluids and nutrients to the disc tissue.
