Car accidents tend to occur when you least expect them to. You’re driving through Snellville when all of a sudden someone changes lanes without signaling, stops abruptly in front of you, or speeds through a red light, striking your vehicle from the side. The stress and physical trauma associated with most car accidents can create a sent of anxiety that prevents victims from reacting properly.
Some injuries, like fractured bones or lacerations, are visible and easy to identify. Other injuries like soft tissue damage do not always produce noticeable symptoms for several weeks or months. After a car accident, it’s imperative to seek Chiropractic Treatment as soon as possible to prevent chronic pain or permanent damage from developing. Contacting our Snellville Chiropractors for a simple examination allows you to rule out potential injuries, identify those that may exist, and receive treatment that supports a healthy recovery.
And, although traditional forms of medicine are excellent for providing solutions that temporarily relieve symptoms, only Chiropractic care is designed to treat musculoskeletal conditions for permanent support. Using a variety of holistic treatment solutions that work naturally with your body, our techniques are completely free of adverse side effects and are proven to provide long-term pain relief.
Whiplash and other forms of tissue damage are often treated at AICA Snellville. Whiplash is the most common injury sustained by accident victims because of how the neck reacts when exposed to sudden force. During accidents, even those that occur at speeds under 30 miles per hour, the neck is forced in multiple directions simultaneously. This causes the ligaments that surround the neck to stretch beyond their limits and tear.
Although Whiplash can produce immediate symptoms, many accident victims do not realize any pain for several weeks after their crash took place. If you are in a car accident, contact our Snellville Chiropractors to avoid the symptoms like blurred vision, sharp pain, inflammation, and stiffness.
The general recommendation for seeking Chiropractic Treatment after a car accident is 72 hours or three days. Early diagnosis and treatment gives you the best opportunity to experience a complete, healthy recovery. If you should have to file a personal injury claim to collect compensation, you will need to obtain an official medical report within the same time period to protect the integrity of your case. Delaying treatment creates an opportunity for the defendant’s insurance provider to argue that your injuries are not as severe as you claim or that they are associated with other events.
If you are involved in a car accident, even a minor fender bender, contact AICA Snellville right away. We are Snellville’s most experienced accident injury center that helps hundreds of patients recover from their injuries each year. Just dial (404) 889-8826 to speak with one of our staff members about scheduling a same-day examination.
