What Is Whiplash?
Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries we treat at Dominguez Injury Centers. The impact of a crash can cause your head to rapidly jerk beyond its normal range of motion, damaging muscles, nerves, and ligaments.
This soft-tissue damage often goes undetected for weeks, months, and in some cases even years. As a result, many people fail to get necessary treatment, shrugging off their undiagnosed discomfort and pain by assuming it is due to aging, an active lifestyle, or manual labor. Some of the symptoms of whiplash and soft tissue injury include:
• Stiff neck
• Jaw pain
• Shoulder pain
• Numbness and tingling
• Arm pain
• Hand pain
Chiropractic Care Can Help
Treating injuries sustained in a car or truck accident (including minor fender benders) requires specific adjustments and special exercises geared towards stabilizing the muscles and ligaments that support the spine or injured joints.
Spinal adjustments help reposition injured and stressed bones to promote healing throughout the body. The chiropractors at Dominguez Injury Center will guide you towards the right treatment for your specific injury so you can regain your full range of pain-free motion.
Successfully Treat Your Injuries
The average emergency room doctor or primary care physician is great at what they do, but they aren’t always experts in diagnosing musculoskeletal or soft-tissue car accident injuries. When recovering from accident-related injuries, patients often benefit from working with a car accident chiropractor.
At Dominguez Injury Centers of Atlanta, we use a hands-on, drug-free approach that doesn’t involve the negative side-effects of medication or invasive surgical procedures. Call us today at 404-900-0000 or stop by one of our Georgia chiropractic offices to get your body back on track.
