Auto Accident Injuries Treated by our Chiropractor in Cumming
Being in a car accident can cause significant injuries to your back and neck. Our Cumming chiropractor treats back and neck car accident injuries.
Auto accident injuries treated by our chiropractor include whiplash and lower back pain. Whiplash occurs when your head and neck are forced outside of their normal range of motion. This results in severe strains and sprains and can misalign your cervical vertebrae, resulting in severe headaches, blurry vision and neck stiffness. Lower back pain after a car accident can be caused by herniated discs, pulled muscles and pinched nerves.

- Pinched Nerves
- Sprains and Strains
Common Car Accident Injury Symptoms
Symptoms from a car accident may not appear at the time of the accident. When you hit another vehicle or object, your body releases adrenaline, which heightens your senses and numbs any pain you might feel. This can delay your symptoms by several days.
- Headaches and Migraines
- Lower Back Pain
- Neck Stiffness and Pain
- Numbness or Tingling in the Legs
- Stiff and Painful Shoulders
Any new or worsening pain, tingling or stiffness should warrant a trip to our chiropractor for a complete diagnosis. Failure to get treatment can leave you with chronic pain and headaches. This is especially true if you have a herniated disc or whiplash.
Auto Injury Treatment with our Chiropractor for Cumming, Coal Mountain, Silver City, Chestatee, Dawsonville, and Buford, GA
Cumming auto injury treatment with our chiropractor can help you heal faster and lessen the number of symptoms you feel. Treatment starts with a thorough evaluation where we ask you about your accident, its severity, and your pain levels and when the accident occurred.
After we have a medical history, our chiropractor will perform a physical evaluation to determine if you have any injuries as a result of your accident. If you do, we will recommend a treatment program that may include chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, lifestyle advice and corrective exercises.
Chiropractic adjustments help realign misaligned vertebrae that can cause inflammation and put pressure on nerve. Chiropractic adjustments are effective at treating whiplash and herniated discs.
Massage therapy commonly compliments chiropractic adjustments. Receiving massages before your adjustment loosens ligaments and tendons, which results in our chiropractor having to use less force to perform the adjustments. Massage therapy also reduces muscle pain, improves circulation and helps increase feelings of well-being.
Our lifestyle advice is designed to prevent you from reinjuring yourself while you are healing. Our auto accident injury chiropractor in Cumming may recommend safer ways to perform certain tasks, like carrying groceries, cooking and cleaning your home, so that you do not accidently aggravate your injuries and cause yourself more pain or slow your healing.
