Arrowhead Clinic Chiropractor Atlanta Describes the Pain that an Accident Victim Feels After a Car Accident

September 18, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Arrowhead Clinic Chiropractor Atlanta, a chiropractic clinic in Atlanta, GA, has revealed that they have recently published a blog post that describes the pain that an accident victim feels after a car accident. The article explains that pain is often caused by trauma. Pain usually occurs after all kinds on injuries, especially those that have been incurred due to a car accident. This is because pain is the body’s internal alarm system that makes people aware that something is wrong in the body. The blog post can be accessed at https://www.arrowheadclinic.com/atlanta/sorenesss-after-a-car-accident.

There are different kinds of pain. There is the sharp pain, which is a stabbing or shooting pain that can be severe and spontaneous but goes away relatively fast. There is the aching pain that’s not very bothersome but persists for a long time. There is the radiating pain that originates from one location and travels throughout the body. This is common with back or neck pain, which may radiate down the arms or legs. And finally, there is the throbbing pain that feels like the patient’s heartbeat is at the point of injury and this can result in extreme discomfort.

How long the soreness and pain may persist will depend on a number of factors. These include: where the accident victim was in the vehicle; the seatbelt; the speed of the crash; the size of the victim’s vehicle; the size of the other vehicle(s); whether the airbags went off; and preexisting injuries.

But with regards to how long the accident victim will remain sore, there’s no way to know unless he or she consults with a qualified medical professional, such as a chiropractor. Meanwhile, it might seem that the pain came from nowhere. This is because some injuries often have delayed symptoms. Examples are spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Those who suddenly feel pain are advised to consult with their doctor as soon as possible. This is because delayed pain will not necessarily mean the injury is less severe. Neck pain may not be cause for alarm but if it is accompanied by fever, there might be a serious problem.

The injuries that may be sustained due to a car accident are soft tissue injuries, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injury. Thus, it is always a good idea to learn more about safe driving habits as a way to avoid getting into a car accident.

Soft tissue injuries include sprains and strains to the body’s soft tissues. The pain resulting from strain or sprain will usually go away after a couple of weeks. But if the pain persists, it may be a disc injury, such as a bulging disc or herniated disc. If the doctor suspects disc injury, he will likely recommend some imaging tests to find out the source of the pain.

Meanwhile, about 38 percent of all spinal cord injuries are caused by a motor vehicle accident. Such injuries can be serious and may result into permanent paralysis. This is why it is important to understand whether the pain is simply a backache or something more serious. A spinal injury may have a number of symptoms, such as: extreme back pain, loss of sensation, numbness or tingling, loss or bowel or bladder control, difficulty breathing, and difficulty walking. Medical treatment is recommended for spinal cord injuries because they can be very serious.

Another potentially serious injury caused by an accident is traumatic brain injury. Symptoms include sudden and severe headaches, confusion, dizziness, mood changes, loss of consciousness, and trouble sleeping. Accident victims who notice these symptoms are advised to consult with their doctor or health care professional.

After a car accident, it is often a good idea to visit a chiropractor who can offer the advantages of quicker healing and preventing injuries from worsening over time. The chiropractor will conduct a comprehensive examination and then develop a treatment plan that will usually include spinal manipulation for relieving pain, promoting healing, and restoring mobility, and preventing chronic conditions from developing.

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Oct 21, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Tiger quadruplets in Berlin zoo treated for knee problems

Oct 21, 2020

BERLIN — A Berlin zoo says four young Sumatran tigers are undergoing treatment for knee problems. The quadruplets were born in the summer of 2018 and as they started to develop, zookeepers noticed abnormalities in the way the cubs ran, the Tierpark Berlin said Wednesday. CT scans revealed all four tigers had knee misalignments that were causing cartilage damage. That damage is now being treated, and an expert team is to sit down in the new year to discuss long-term strategies to help the tigers. “We don't want to just rely on our own judgement. We will sit down with...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Oct 21, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Oct 21, 2020

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

Millennial Money: Secrets of a Black Friday Shopper

Oct 21, 2020

My husband and I have a Thanksgiving routine. Before the family arrives or the turkey is carved, we gather in the living room. As Christmas music plays in the background, he turns on his laptop, and I mine. That's when the deal hunt begins. Some people cringe at the thought of shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, but I revel in it. Maybe it's because I love a good bargain, or because I write about how to save money. Whatever the reason, I know a lot about Black Friday. And I'd like to share some secrets with you. SHOPPING EARLY...
