Auto Accident Care Marietta

woman sitting on curb after car accidentWhether you’ve been in a minor fender bender or a serious auto accident, it’s important that you get evaluated as soon as possible. That’s because there’s significant tissue damage that can affect you long term.

Many people make the mistake of just waiting it out. They see if they will get better. As time passes, you can feel pain weeks, months and years later. You may not even realize that it’s related to your accident because you think that you felt okay afterward. Because of adrenaline and shock, you don’t realize that you require medical attention.

Here are some of the symptoms you may experience if you don’t get the care you need:

  • Back pain
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Shoulder pain
  • Stiffness
  • Tension

But It Was Just a Minor Accident

You may say, “The accident was minor so I don’t need to get checked.” For example, an individual could be driving at 15 mph when they got hit from behind. That person may think that because there was minor damage to their vehicle, their injury may not be severe. But according to research as little as eight mph on a rear-end collision can tear the ligaments and tendons in the neck. The development of symptoms can be months to years later. It’s common for symptoms not to show up for years.

According to some medical research, those in an auto accident are at much higher risk for many issues in the future. These include headaches, degeneration, arthritis and neuropathy.

Providing Gentle Adjustments

If we can get you corrected and aligned following an accident, you’re going to be much better off long term even if some of that scar tissue does form. The scar tissue should be forming in a lined-up position, not in a misaligned position.

If you’re in pain following an auto accident, you may be concerned about what an adjustment will feel like. Not to worry. Our upper cervical technique is light, gentle and highly specific. We also perform some soft tissue work and extremity adjusting (if you have ankle, knee, foot or shoulder problems). Manual traction or trigger point work can also be provided.
