Whiplash Treatment at Health First Family Chiropractic, P.C., in Columbus, GA
Whiplash is a severe neck injury that usually occurs during a car accident in which the driver was rear-ended. If you’ve recently been in a car accident and think you might have a musculoskeletal auto accident injury, our chiropractor at Health First Family Chiropractic can help you.
Whiplash and Auto Injuries Treated by Our Columbus Chiropractor
Our Columbus chiropractor treats all types of musculoskeletal car accident injuries, including whiplash, which is a severe sprain and strain of the neck. The symptoms of whiplash can take several days to fully manifest. For that reason, our chiropractor often recommends scheduling an appointment as soon as you realize you might have a neck injury.
Common symptoms of whiplash include neck stiffness and pain, pain in the upper back or shoulders, and numbness or tingling down the arms. Many individuals also experience severe headaches and dizziness.
Auto Injury Treatment in Columbus
Auto injury treatment in Columbus with our chiropractor starts with a complete diagnosis. This involves taking a complete medical history, including when you had your car accident, performing a complete physical evaluation and taking x-rays of your neck in order to get a clearer picture of the injury.
Once we have an accurate diagnosis, we will develop a treatment plan that helps naturally reduce your symptoms while encouraging your body to heal. Depending on the severity of your injury and your short and long-term wellness goals, our chiropractor may recommend one or more treatment options.
For example, our chiropractor may start with chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy along with lifestyle advice to prevent reinjury. As soon as you are ready, we may suggest corrective exercises to help rebuild the strength in your neck and upper back.
