Whiplash Treatment in Peachtree City, GA

Enjoy a Pain-Free Life with Our Whiplash Treatment

When you’ve been involved in a car accident and have sustained whiplash who do you turn to?

The most obvious answer may be your doctor, but with no conventional treatments on hand, how can you ensure the route you’re going down is as effective as possible?

This lack of direction is why nearly half of whiplash sufferers are left with pain that hampers their day-to-day life.

But you needn’t become part of this statistic thanks to the whiplash treatment we offer at our clinic in Peachtree City.

How Can You Tell If You Have Whiplash?

One of the most difficult things about whiplash is that it can present itself in a number of ways, and not just in painful sensations within the upper back and neck.

Other key signs to watch out for are:

  • Pins and needles in your hands and arms
  • Depression or irritable moods
  • Headaches
  • Being unable to concentrate
  • Lack of movement in your neck and upper back

You may find that these symptoms start to ease over time, but don’t take this as a sign that you don’t need treatment. Leaving whiplash untreated can increase your risk of future complications.

For example, one study found that there was a 75% chance of someone still having restricted mobility in their neck a year later.

Thankfully, we can help you avoid these long-term complications, with one research project highlighting how 93% of patients noticed an improvement after undoing chiropractic for whiplash.

What Does Our Whiplash Treatment Involve?

First, it’s important we correctly diagnose your whiplash. That’s why our chiropractor, Dr. John Giovanelli, who has been a Doctor of Chiropractic for 30 years, will conduct a full physical examination. Plus, further diagnostic tests if necessary, e.g. an X-ray, MRI scan, or CT scan.

This helps him ensure that the most suitable treatment program is put together for you – and is one that will target the source of your discomfort.

Care plans often include a number of complementary chiropractic techniques, such as spinal decompression, manual adjustments, and massage therapy.

Spinal decompression works to alleviate any pressure that’s being placed on your spine, which could have been caused by your discs moving into an incorrect position. Meanwhile, manual adjustments further mobilize your joints and ease stiff muscles.

Lastly, massage therapy continues to help improve your mobility and release built-up tension. And it helps you relax and unwind, which is hugely beneficial when you’ve sustained such a painful injury.
