Car Accident Treatment

Car Accident Treatment

You can never totally rule out the risk of being involved in an auto accident, regardless of how meticulous or skilled a driver you are.

On a global scale, auto accidents kill an average of 3,827 people every day, with up to 50 million more incidents of injury or impairment occurring each year due to these catastrophic events. 

Even if you don't notice the symptoms right away, a car accident can leave you with various issues, ranging from whiplash to lower back pain. 

However, whether you are in acute pain or have a hidden injury in Georgia and South Carolina, Chiropractic can help you.

How Can A Car Accident Harm Your Body?

Even a low-speed car accident can cause severe bodily harm. Heavy things, such as cars, can transmit extraordinarily high momentum forces to the people and items inside. 

A safety belt will keep you from flying into the dashboard or windshield, but it will only save you from flying into your trunk. 

Your head is free to move forward and backward at tremendous speeds, causing injury to your neck vertebrae, discs, nerves, and soft tissues. This is referred to as whiplash. 

Whiplash can result in more than just neck discomfort; it can also induce headaches, migraines, dizzy spells, hearing and vision impairments, and cognitive issues. 

Other common injuries caused by car accidents are as follows:

• Thoracic spinal injuries that produce pain in the upper back or ribs.
• Lumbar subluxation or herniated discs cause low back pain.
• Sciatica is when the sciatic nerve tissue is pinched, resulting in leg weakness, discomfort, and other symptoms.

After a car accident, soft tissue injuries are treated At Arrowhead:

After a car accident, our chiropractors in Georgia and South Carolina treat soft tissue injuries. 

The car accident treatment includes muscle and ligament injuries. Head and neck injuries, joint injuries, sprains and strains, whiplash, and herniated discs are common soft tissue injuries sustained in a car accident.

After a vehicle accident, Chiropractic care treats the injuries.

Head Injuries:

Concussions and other traumatic head injuries can occur following a car accident, resulting in confusion, difficulties concentrating, and sleeplessness. 

If you think you've had a concussion, our chiropractor can diagnose the damage, evaluate your symptoms, and offer a treatment plan to aid with post-concussion syndrome.

Disc Herniation:

The force applied to your body can result in herniated discs in your back and neck during the collision. 

Herniated discs happen when a piece of the disc bulges or slips out of position, exerting pressure on the surrounding nerve roots and producing discomfort in the back, neck, and extremities.


Because of sprains and strains, car accident injuries can cause inflammation and edema of the muscles and ligaments. 

Our chiropractor can assess sprains and strains and provide a treatment plan to alleviate pain, inflammation, and swelling.

Knee Injuries:

Your body may move during a car accident forward in the seat, causing your knee to collide with the dash or a door. 

This can cause a twisted knee, as well as bruising and swelling. 

Our South Bay chiropractor can assess the degree of your knee injury and provide a treatment plan to minimize swelling and inflammation while also restoring range of motion and strength.

Shoulder Strains:

Shoulder injuries in the shoulder-held back by the seat belt are prevalent. 

This can cause shoulder pain and a reduction of joint range of motion. Chiropractic therapy with our chiropractor can aid in the healing of shoulder injuries sustained in a car accident.


When the head and neck are moved back and forth, whiplash develops not as well secured as the rest of the body 

During the collision, your body glances back and forth between the seatbelt and the seatback. While the seatbelt keeps your body in place, your head and neck continue forward to their full range of motion. 

This can result in a significant sprain and strain of your neck, as well as a misalignment of the vertebrae. The following are common whiplash symptoms:

• Severe headaches
• Blurry vision
• Neck ache
• Stiffness.
