Nashville Accident Help
Dr. Casey Bearden
One of the most common injuries in an auto accident is whiplash. Sometimes referred to as whiplash syndrome, it is caused by the sudden back-and-forth motion of a crash victim’s head when their car is in a collision. The strain to the muscles in the neck after a car crash can be very painful and last for days, weeks, or even months depending on the severity. Seeking immediate treatment for whiplash is essential, not only to allow your body to heal, but also to get a record of the injury so that you can be fairly compensated when you file a claim with insurance.
At the office of Nashville Accident Help, you can relax in the knowledge that as you receive natural medical treatment for the muscle and spinal tissue that you have injured in an accident, you are in the hands of a professional who also knows the ins-and-outs of auto insurance compensation. Our chiropractors will document your injuries clearly so that you can be properly reimbursed by insurance for the whiplash.
Symptoms of whiplash are not always immediate, and pain is not the only thing that can indicate whiplash. Following a collision, keep an eye out for:
Stiffness or pain in the neck
Headaches, especially at the base of your head
Tenderness in the shoulders, arms, upper back, or neck
Numbness or tingling
Dizziness or fatigue
Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
Abnormalities in memory or mood
Nashville Accident Help provides chiropractic treatment to relieve pain and help your whiplash heal naturally. The corrective measures employed by our chiropractor can put an end to your neck and shoulder pain without surgery or the use of over the counter or prescription painkillers. Nashville Accident Help specializes in deep tissue laser therapy, a non-invasive treatment that uses light to reduce pain and promote repair to soft tissue without excessive scarring. Depending on the extent of your whiplash, we may utilize other techniques such as spinal decompression if there is injury to a disc, therapeutic massage, manual joint stretching techniques and other methods to relax your injured muscles and ensure that the soft tissue in your neck, shoulders, and back is in the best position to heal as naturally and painlessly as possible.
Even if you do not immediately experience symptoms of whiplash or other pain following a car or truck crash, you should still schedule an appointment as soon as possible with the chiropractor to check for underlying injuries and document your condition.Soft tissue insurance claims are often difficult to prove without a record from professionals like Nashville Accident Help. Whether your claim is settled out of court or through a filed lawsuit, we will be glad to present testimony of your injury and its effects on you.Type your paragraph here.
