ATLANTA, Feb. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Jared Simon announced that Century Center Chiropractic is now offering free consultations for auto accident injury patients. Dr. Simon is encouraging accident victims to seek prompt care following an injury, which can help prevent the development of chronic pain. Spinal adjustments help to address the underlying cause for neck pain and back pain following an accident. Complementary treatments, such massage therapy and physical therapy, also support the internal healing process while naturally relieving pain. Individuals may visit the practice's website to sign up for a free diagnostic appointment.
Following a car accident, injury victims may benefit from chiropractic care. In order to make it easier for patients to receive the care they need, chiropractor Dr. Jared Simon is now offering a complementary consultation for accident victims.
According to Dr. Simon, many accident victims do not realize the extent of their injuries until the onset of chronic pain, which can happen weeks or months after the accident. Failure to seek prompt treatment leads to the formation of scar tissue, which blocks the healing process and can exacerbate pain.
"Many patients walk away from a car accident with only a few scrapes or bruises," said Dr. Simon. "Unfortunately, the absence of physical injuries can be misleading. Even a minor fender bender can cause serious trauma to the musculoskeletal system. A prompt diagnostic evaluation is the best way to diagnose and treat injuries."
During a diagnostic appointment, Dr. Simon will conduct a comprehensive exam, including X-rays. Should a musculoskeletal injury be diagnosed, Dr. Simon will create a custom treatment plan to address the injuries.
Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries that Dr. Simon treats. The chiropractor has helped hundreds of Atlanta patients successfully manage the chronic neck pain, headaches and other health problems associated with a whiplash injury.
This injury occurs when the force of a rear fender-bender whips the cervical spine beyond its normal range of motion. When the neck is abruptly whipped forwards and backwards, patients may suffer from a herniated disc or spinal misalignment. This misalignment can trigger chronic pain and become progressively more difficult to treat over time.
"For whiplash injuries, prompt care can make the difference between minor soreness and years of neck pain," said Dr. Simon. "The earlier we are able to diagnose this injury, then the more we can do to support the internal healing process."
Chiropractic adjustments help to relieve back pain by restoring proper alignment to the spine. Complementary therapies, including hydro massage, can also help sore and stiff muscles relax.
"Alternative treatments like hydro therapy or electrical muscle stimulation can help tense muscles relax while also stimulating the internal healing process," said Dr. Simon.
