Atlanta Personal Injury Care
Trauma can cause spinal misalignments in the body which can in turn distort your structure and irritate your nerves, bones, ligaments and discs. Any accident, no matter how minor, can create nerve-damaging misalignments. We can give you a spinal check-up to ensure that your spine is free from these health-compromising changes and to prevent any long-term damage. From there we can come up with a personal injury care plan to help you get back to normal and provide the proper documentation of your care plan to help you have as much of your treatment as possible covered by insurance.
The Doctors at Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness have been specializing in auto accident injuries for many years and can answer any questions you may have concerning the personal injury process. Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness also performs many diagnostic tests to accurately evaluate and provide detailed documentation of your injuries.
Whiplash is the common name given to the injury where there is a hyperextention (increased backward motion) and hyperflexion (increased forward motion) of the neck. More simply put, the head is dramatically thrust forward and backward. Car accidents and falls can cause whiplash injuries.
Symptoms of whiplash include headaches, visual disturbance, stiffness of the neck, restriction of movement and shoulder, neck or arm pain. These symptoms may or may not be felt immediately. It is estimated that most whiplash injuries are not felt for several hours, days and in some cases even months following the accident.
We can assist in your recovery by correctly adjusting your neck and/or spine so it has the chance to heal properly. In addition, we can recommend physical therapy, stretching and strengthening exercises to put you back on the road to good health. A solid personal injury care plan can help you get back to your previous level of health faster.
