Chiropractic Care for Whiplash Injuries in Cumming, GA
Whiplash is a common condition among car accident victims in Cumming, GA. At Watts Chiropractic Clinic, we understand that whiplash can lower your quality of life and lead to chronic pain. We strive to provide proper whiplash treatment for victims of car accidents, personal injuries and more.
Many People Don't Know They Have Whiplash
Whiplash can take several hours or days after the accident to start showing symptoms, and when the patient does begin to display symptoms, many of the symptoms seem unrelated to one another. As a result, many people are unaware that they have whiplash for a long time after the accident occurs. If you've been in an accident, it's important to be watchful for symptoms, even if you believe that you are uninjured. Some of the symptoms include:
- Dizziness, headache and inability to focus
- Pain in the shoulder, neck and back
- Stiffness and limited range of motion
- Difficulty concentrating and lack of memory
What Our Cumming Chiropractor Can Do
At Watts Chiropractic Clinic in Cumming, GA, we treat whiplash with the following techniques:
Spinal adjustment. Spinal adjustment is a technique that realigns the vertebrae of the spine, creating a clear passageway for the spinal cord. Spinal adjustment helps treat any subluxations that may have occurred because of the accident, and also improves range of motion in your back and neck. Spinal adjustment can also help reduce inflammation and pressure on the joints, and can help manage pain.
Massage therapy. Massage therapy helps relax muscles that are stiff, tight and injured. Massage therapy helps patients feel better after chiropractic treatments, can help speed the recovery process and can improve blood flow to injured parts of the spine.
Stretches and exercises. We help patients by teaching them how to perform stretches and exercises that can improve their overall mobility and strengthen their muscles as they recover. We recommend to our patients that they perform their stretches and exercises at home as well as at the clinic.
Lifestyle advice. We give lifestyle advice to our patients to help them make smart decisions that can help their recovery and reduce their pain.
Nutrition advice. Our nutrition advice can help patients get the calories and protein they need to make a full recovery. We tailor our nutrition advice to each patient, because each patient participates in different activities and has different needs.
