Auto Accident Care in Peachtree City

It’s somewhere most of us have been before, but also a place we hope to never return to. Auto accidents happen, but even when they are minor, they can leave lasting effects on your health.

At Davis Chiropractic Center, we’re here to help patients understand the benefits of chiropractic care following an auto accident and how it could help you avoid years of chronic, unpleasant symptoms.

How Whiplash Happens

Did you know that whiplash can occur in a car traveling just 5MPH? When you’re in a car crash, the force from the impact of the other vehicle or object has to go somewhere-and that somewhere means it’s going through your body. This often results in a whipping motion of your neck, either from side to side or front to back. When this occurs, the spinal bones can slip out of alignment, and muscles or ligaments in the area can stretch or tear.

Even the slightest fender bender can lead to big problems in the neck and body. Thankfully, chiropractic care can help. We’re proud to offer a variety of gentle techniques unique to each individual that helps restore balance and proper spinal alignment to the body. Aside from neck pain, we commonly see injuries including:

  • Back pain
  • Headaches or head injuries
  • Cervical curve reversal
  • Hip pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sciatica
  • Extremity issues
  • And more

When it comes to your treatment, there will never be any guessing. In fact, we take pride in diving deep to uncover what’s really going on in your body so that we can help you heal properly. We’ll begin by getting your health history so that we have a complete understanding of what brought you in. We’ll then do specific testing to understand even more of what’s happening in your body. If necessary, we’ll take additional scans like x-rays-if you have any scans from seeking past medical care for this injury, we invite you to bring them with you for evaluation.

After, we’ll go over your recommended care plan and get started with your first adjustment if you’re ready. In addition to adjustments, we also offer other modalities like heat or ice therapy and electrical stimulation for improved healing.

We’re also happy to accept insurance and attorney liens. An attorney lien allows you to get the care that you need without paying upfront-ask us for more information when you call to book our visit and we’ll be happy to assist you in any way that we can.

What is whiplash?

Whiplash is a condition that can occur after a sudden, jarring motion to the head and neck. Symptoms of whiplash can include neck pain and stiffness, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. When not addressed in a timely fashion, a whiplash injury can fester for months, or even years, bringing a host of health problems down the road.
How can a chiropractor help with whiplash?

A chiropractor can help to treat whiplash by realigning the spine and relieving muscle tension. Chiropractic care can also help to reduce inflammation and improve range of motion, among other things.
Is chiropractic care safe?

Yes, chiropractic adjustments are safe and effective for helping patients of all walks of life realign their spine and balance their nervous system, promoting optimal healing from within.
How long does it take to recover from an auto accident injury?

The amount of time it takes to recover from whiplash or another auto accident injury will vary depending on the severity of the injury. In most cases, symptoms will improve within 10 weeks of care with us.
