Been in a car accident? A chiropractor near Thomasville, Ga discusses accident recovery. Car wrecks can be severely debilitating even leading to permanent disability. The problem with auto accidents is that even if you survive with no more than a bruise, the sudden force of impact and the shearing traction results in a whiplash injury that affects the alignment of the spine especially the atlas vertebrae (top vertebrae in neck).
Such injuries need time and proper realignment to heal, something that pharmaceutical medicines can't provide. We are not against the use of medicines, however, for a personal injury like this, medicines do little more than numb the pain. As long as the misalignment of the atlas vertebrae persists, the pain will keep coming back. Hence, a better solution, like Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic, is to treat the cause of the pain rather than blocking the pain signals.
What is Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic?
One of the first things you should do after a car accident is, visit a chiropractor. Chiropractors are able to gently align the bones and ligaments and excel at treating neck pain, back pain, whiplash and soft tissue injuries, which are some of the most common kinds of injuries in a car accident. Other than this, whiplash is often associated with lasting discomfort.
Atlas Orthogonal (AO Treatment) Chiropractic attempts to correct the alignment and the placement of the atlas vertebrae in relation to each other and the soft tissues. It is based on medical knowledge of the anatomy of the body and modern technologies that have proven to be effective. Visiting a chiropractor immediately after such an injury allows him to correct the problem as soon as possible, which sets your body on the path to recovery as soon as possible.
