Auto Accident Chiropractic in Athens

Adjusting man's neckAn automobile accident is one of the most traumatic things that can happen to your body. Even in a low-speed crash, tremendous force is absorbed by your body—which, unlike a car, is not designed to withstand that kind of impact. The physics of what happens involves your body moving in one direction with significant momentum that is abruptly stopped when your car hits another car or a stationary object. This can cause your head to whip forward and then back with great force, causing whiplash injuries, other types of strain/strain injuries and concussion—even if you don’t hit your head.

In many cases, it’s not the acute injury itself that causes the biggest problems. It’s the way your body compensates after an injury. When you’ve been injured, your body goes into protective mode, guarding the injured area by tightening the muscles and creating scar tissue. This limits your mobility, and your body will create compensatory patterns of movement. If these issues aren’t addressed, they can lead to a cascade of problems that may not become apparent for months or years after the accident.

Chiropractic care helps to heal ligaments and tendons by restoring the cervical curve and correcting other misalignments to help erase the bad patterns your body forms after a collision.

  • Degenerative disc disease
