Auto Accident Chiropractic in Decatur

When a person is in an automobile accident, there’s sure to be a whiplash injury. The sudden stop in forward motion causes unavoidable stress to the neck, back, and spine.

xray review with patientDecatur Back & Neck Center is certified to find and document spinal injuries resulting from an auto accident. Chiropractic is one of the few specialties specifically designed to address your injury or trauma site.

After the crash, your joints may become unstable, and ligaments can be overstretched. These spinal ligament injuries are often unseen and missed by other providers, and may lead to increased arthritis, more scar tissue, and more neurological damage, if not treated soon after the accident.

Symptoms can take up to a week to appear. You might feel fine at first, thanks to an adrenaline rush, but ignoring problems now can lead to chronic issues. In addition to whiplash, you may experience low back pain, hip pain, shoulder pain and concussions. Chiropractic care may prevent long-term, and even lifelong, pain and dysfunction.
