Car accidents often lead to spinal damage, diminished mobility, and pain for those involved, regardless of how much damage either vehicle sustains. Accident injuries tend to be slow to heal as most accident victims require four to six weeks of rest and treatment to recover.
In the hundreds of car collision injury cases that our Jonesboro Chiropractors have treated, the staff at AICA Jonesboro have learned what situations patients should try to avoid to protect themselves from accident injuries.
Georgia law requires drivers to keep a healthy distance between their vehicle and those in front of them. Too often, tailgaters or people who drive too closely behind the vehicle in front of them get into an accident when some situation occurs that causes the lead driver to use their brakes. Rear-end collisions are notorious for causing tissue damage, fractured bones, and Whiplash Injury – all of which require immediate Chiropractic treatment to prevent permanent damage.
When driving through Atlanta’s traffic-congested highways, try to stay three seconds worth of distance behind the vehicle in front of you to give yourself enough time to react to any sudden situation that may arise. For poor weather conditions, it’s recommended to increase this distance to five or six seconds.
