  1. Recovering from Auto Accidents

    May 5, 2011 by Dr. Richard Speizer

    Auto accidents can critically impact a family. Severe injury and sometimes death often result from a crash. If you have been injured in a car accident an appointment with a local chiropractor is usually a good first step. I specialize in providing chiropractic care in response to auto accidents throughout the Sandy Springs, Georgia (30328) area.

    A common effect of an auto accident is having your neck and spine being thrust forward by extreme force, we refer to this as whiplash. When it occurs, the bones in these areas are thrown out of alignment. This shift is not irreversible however, I have been able to correct nearly 100% of the whiplash cases I see through non-invasive chiropractic treatments.

    Massage therapy can also be used to stimulate the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the affected area. Depending on the severity of the injury I may recommend complementing the chiropractic adjustments with a massage. Most massage appointments last from 30 to 60 minutes and are done right here in my office.

    After I have realigned the bones in the neck and spine it is important to make sure the structure holds. I will recommend exercises and stretches to work into your routine that will help retain the correct shape of the skeletal system as you recover from the effects of the accident.

    Without treatment the pain and discomfort from a car accident can affect your lifestyle for years. If you or a loved one are suffering through the effects of an automobile accident please come in to our Sandy Springs office for an appointment today and see what a difference chiropractic care can make!
