How A Stockbridge GA Chiropractic Office Helps Personal Injury Sufferers

By Lonnie Trevarthen


A new client may seek chiropractic care after suffering a personal injury through another persons negligence or intent. Causative factors range from workplace accidents to being hit in a car by a drunken driver. Defective products may be sold even if the manufacturer knows they are unsafe. Any one of these victims can be helped by a Stockbridge Georgia Chiropractor.

That victim could have been shaken severely and suffered a whiplash injury. These are most often seen after an automobile accident. If her head was struck against a hard surface, she may have a concussion without realizing it.

Boys are frequently hurt when colliding on with each other while playing football. The boy might want to continue playing. However, any period of unconsciousness, no matter how brief, needs to be seen by a professional. Coaches now refuse to let such a victim return to the game until that has been done.

A man working in a manufacturing plant might have lower back pain because he fell on a dangerously slippery floor. A homeowner might have similar pain because he fell when a faulty ladder collapsed while he was painting a ceiling. These are both preventable accidents.

As your chiropractor makes the initial examination, he is already formulating a plan as to what care will further your rehabilitation. If your neck is stiff, gently adjusting the joints can loosen them and restore normal movement. Spinal adjustments applied over time will alleviate the agony of a low back injury.

Any high schooler on the football team who reports having been unconscious, is referred to another professional care provider. Any soft tissue damage is restored over time using stretches and strengthening exercises. Tight muscles respond well to massage.

Between office appointments the client is asked to follow a program of exercise tailored to his specific needs. When done as instructed, these exercises will maintain flexibility between office visits. They will also strengthen the muscle tissue that has been damaged.
