Atlas Chiropractic for Head and Neck Injuries
Have you experienced a head or neck injury such as a whiplash or concussion from a car accident, sports injury, a slip and fall, or other traumatic experience?
“Whiplash” is the term for a sudden movement of the head caused by an abnormal force that flexes or extends the neck muscles beyond their normal range of motion. There may be spinal injury as well as ligament or nerve damage and even a minor traumatic brain injury (MTBI) with whiplash. When your neck gets “whipped” (which usually happens very fast), the ligaments in the neck get stretched, and they no longer prevent the neck vertebrae (bones) from gliding against one another. Car accidents with speeds as low as 5 mph are enough to cause a person to suffer from a whiplash. Football and soccer impacts can result in whiplash or concussions.
Some of the common symptoms of head trauma include:
- numbness or tingling in your arms or hands
- headaches or migraines
- neck, back, or shoulder pain
- vertigo, dizziness or nausea
- visual or auditory issues
- ringing in the ears
Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic is a gentle, specialized technique that is proven to be a very effective treatment that helps relieve symptoms of head and neck traumas -- including whiplash and concussions -- and helps the body heal itself after an injury.
According to a study published in The Journal of Whiplash and Related Disorders, 80 percent of whiplash patients who were treated with Atlas Orthogonal experienced complete or near complete resolution of their pain and other symptoms.
Studies in the Journal of Injury and the Journal of Orthopedic Medicine show that people who saw no improvement in their symptoms from treatment by an orthopedist, physical therapist, or pain management specialist did see improvement with upper cervical chiropractic treatment.
The studies concluded that chiropractic care was an effective treatment for chronic neck pain caused by whiplash and head trauma.
