Whiplash Treatment Douglasville

If you or a loved one have been in an accident and are experiencing neck stiffness, neck pain, intense headaches, or limited ranges of motions, you might need chiropractic care for whiplash treatment.

My Neck Hurts, but How Do I Know if Whiplash Has Occurred?

Physically speaking, whiplash literally begins when a person unsuspectingly whips their head and neck backwards in an uncontrolled manner. The 2nd of half of whiplash occurs when the same neck and head that just snapped uncontrollably backwards snaps forward. The stereotype surrounding whiplash is that it’s usually associated with automobile accidents. While it is true that whiplash injuries are cited on over 65% of bodily injury claims from car accident victims, whiplash can happen in the boxing ring, on the football field, on a horse or bicycle, or even at home or work. A sudden slip and fall can cause your head to snap backwards unexpectedly. Wet steps off the porch, a high-arching staircase down to your basement, slick sidewalks, or even wet grass can all be arenas that put you in precarious positions, and leave your head and neck susceptible to whiplash. Even getting struck with a ball or heavy object can cause whiplash. If you or a loved one is suffering from Whiplash Complications, help is only a phone call or email away. Call or contact Planet Chiropractic and get started on whiplash treatment!

The Long-Lasting Impact of Whiplash

Whiplash could be caused by several different types of accidents. From instances as violent as a car accident or a bone-crushing hit in football, to occurrences as common as a slip-and-fall at home, the impact of neck injuries can be felt long after the initial accident. If left untreated, severe Whiplash symptoms can last weeks, months, or even years. Although many cases of whiplash can be treated using home remedies such as ice, rest, and other doctor-approved items, more intense whiplash might require medical attention. If you are experiencing symptoms of Whiplash, you might need professional treatment. Planet Chiropractic can get your whiplash treatment started. Don’t delay! Call today!
