Duluth Chiropractor Publishes Blog Post on Whiplash Injuries

June 01, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Arrowhead Clinic, a chiropractor clinic in Duluth, GA, has announced that Dr. Darris Gentry, a practicing chiropractic at the clinic, has published an article on their website that presents four facts about whiplash injuries. A whiplash injury usually happens to people involved in a motor vehicle accident where their neck is violently moved backward and then forward. The result is that muscles, joints, and ligaments of the neck and upper back are overstretched. In the article titled, “Duluth Chiropractor Unveils Four Facts About Whiplash Injuries,” Dr. Gentry discusses the various ways to get whiplash, the fact that the symptoms are not always immediate, the fact that whiplash doesn’t require much force, and the fact that chiropractors may be able to help with whiplash.

Dr. Darris Gentry explains, “Whiplash can be a severe injury that shouldn't be taken lightly. Sometimes it can take a day or even weeks for the symptoms of whiplash to show up. That's why you should see a chiropractor after a car accident, even if you don't feel injured. It's also good to know the facts about whiplash so you'll have a better idea if you have it after being in a car accident.”

Motor vehicle accidents are not the only way that people can get a whiplash injury. While car accidents are the most common cause of whiplash injury, it may also be caused by slip and fall accidents or high impact sports, such as boxing, football, and gymnastics.

Pain in the neck and shoulders are some of the usual symptoms of whiplash, but some symptoms may not be felt immediately following the accident. It may take days or even weeks before the symptoms begin to appear. Other potential symptoms include headaches, numbness, muscle spasms, or tingling. The problem is that accident victims may feel that such symptoms are unrelated to the accident. Thus, it is important to know the symptoms of whiplash and to consult with a chiropractor immediately after the accident.

There is also the common misconception that a strong force is required for a whiplash injury to occur. Unfortunately, that is not true. Many accident victims have experienced whiplash injuries from a car accident while driving as slow as 5 to 10 miles per hour. And the severity of the whiplash injury will depend on whether the victim was properly restrained in the car during the collision.

And finally, chiropractors may be able to help accident victims suffering from whiplash injury. The chiropractors at Arrowhead Clinic have a lot of experience in treating whiplash injuries and may help in reducing the pain and the side effects of whiplash. They also offer free consultations so that victims may know how a chiropractor may be able to help with their injuries. They will perform a thorough exam and assessment to determine which area of the cervical spine has been affected by the accident. This will be followed by a review of the patient’s medical history so that a customized treatment for the individual can be provided.

Dr. Darris Gentry has more than 20 years of experience as a practicing chiropractic. He obtained his degrees from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Life University. He focuses on offering treatment for neck pain, back pain, sciatica pain, and spinal trauma.

Arrowhead Clinic specializes in the provision of treatment for victims of motor vehicle accident victims. Thus, the chiropractic and medical doctors at the clinic are experts in treating injuries related to car accidents. They can also help in providing the necessary documentation of injuries, reports, and detailed narratives for the insurance companies and lawyers for the proper resolution of the car accident victim’s claim for compensation. A chiropractor can help an accident victim by checking for any spinal misalignment that may be causing pain.

When in need of a whiplash chiropractor Duluth, GA residents may want to check out the Arrowhead Clinic - Duluth website, or contact them on the telephone or through email. They are open from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday to Friday.

Stocks rise on Wall Street as rally stretches to fourth day

Jul 9, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rallied Monday, rising with European and several Asian markets following surprisingly strong reports on China's economy. Growth in factory activity and retail sales in the world's second-largest economy both beat analysts’ expectations for last month. That layered on top of optimism from last week’s long-awaited “Phase 1” trade deal between China and the United States, which removed some of the uncertainty that’s hung over businesses and investors. The interim trade deal is one of a “trifecta of positive catalysts” that swept through the market last week and could help support it through the end of...

Cowboys render coin toss mix-up moot, throttle Rams 44-21

Jul 9, 2020

ARLINGTON, Texas — Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys turned “much ado about nothing” over the coin toss into “win and they're in” next weekend. Prescott threw two touchdown passes after his confusing exchange with referee Walt Anderson made many think the Cowboys forced themselves to kick off to start both halves, and Ezekiel Elliott ran for two scores in a 44-21 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The Cowboys (7-7) ended their second three-game losing streak of the season, and the defending NFC East champions stayed even with Philadelphia atop the division with a showdown looming next...

Draghi stepped in during euro's darkest hour

Jul 9, 2020

FRANKFURT, Germany — Mario Draghi leaves as head of the European Central Bank credited with having rescued the eurozone from disaster with a well-timed phrase and bold action to back up his words. He expanded the bank's arsenal of crisis-fighting tools with new and unconventional policies, measures that he and others say helped end a financial crisis in 2010-2012 and create millions of jobs in the 19-country monetary union. Yet the closing days of his term have hardly been a victory lap. His departure is accompanied by an unusually public dispute among ECB board members over stimulus policies he pushed...
