Automobile Injury Chiropractic

General Chiropractic

An auto accident is unfortunate and always a surprising event. While some people may encounter pain, discomfort, and various symptoms immediately following a car crash, the injuries sustained by others may not manifest for days or weeks before they begin affecting a daily routine or one’s quality of life. Dr. Peter Lazarnick (Dr. Pete), who serves the greater Carrollton, GA, vicinity, and his staff of chiropractic professionals offer relief from acute and chronic pain caused by a car accident.

Common Auto Accident Injuries

Car crash victims typically sustain injuries related to their musculoskeletal system. A few examples of these injuries would include -

  • Whiplash – this is a type of neck injury that typically happens when your body is thrust intensely, forcefully, and suddenly back and forth. This is the typical result when you are hit from behind as a passenger or driver in a stopped vehicle. This startling collision can whip a person’s head backward and forward in a motion that is both uncontrollable and forceful. The power of these violent back-and-forth motions can strain cervical/neck muscles and damage supporting and surrounding soft tissue. Typical whiplash symptoms include –
    • Headaches or unexplained dizziness.
    • Numbness radiating down one/both arms.
    • Limited/Reduced mobility/range of motion of the neck or cervical region.

Additional Musculoskeletal Injuries That May Be Caused By an Auto Accident

Other automobile accident injuries include ongoing pain, muscle weakness or stiffness, numbness, and a reduction of mobility in your neck, back, shoulders, legs, and more. In addition to potential bruising, swelling, and other soft tissue injuries, a car crash can potentially cause -

  • Dislocations/fractures of bones and joints anywhere on your body.
  • Muscle or tendon strains.
  • Ligament sprains.
  • Spinal cord injuries.
  • Herniated discs.
