All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) provide a convenient means for transporting heavy items, as well as enjoying the great outdoors. Although less ATV-related accidents take place each year, close to 100,000 people sustain minor to critical injuries, largely due to inexperience and substance abuse.
Regardless of whether you suffer a fractured bone or something more serious, our Conyers Chiropractors can help you recover from your injuries, as well as provide immediate pain relief.
The weight and size of an average ATV cause them to be more susceptible to rolling or flipping over. Since riders are not afforded the luxury of a seatbelt or some type of safety harness, a simple ATV accident can cause the rider to launch from their vehicle, potentially hitting a tree or some other type of immovable object. For rollover ATV accidents where the vehicle lands on top of the rider, it’s important to understand that the average ATV weighs close to 350 lbs. This type of weight, combined with the force of the vehicle’s speed, can easily cause critical to fatal injuries.
The majority of ATV accident injuries include deep bruising and fractured bones. Your legs, neck, ribs, and shoulders are more vulnerable to injuries, based on the position your body takes when driving an ATV. Other common types of ATV injuries our Conyers Chiropractors treat include:
If you are injured while driving an ATV through Conyers, contact our Chiropractors as soon as possible. Similar to other kinds of auto accidents, receiving immediate Chiropractic treatment is the only way to ensure that you are protected from critical damage that could develop into chronic conditions over time.
Once you schedule your first appointment or a free consultation, our Chiropractors will perform a complete examination to determine the source and location of your injury. Using the latest advancements in imaging technology (e.g. X-ray scans, CT scans, Ultrasound), our Chiropractors are able to measure the exact size and depth of your injury, allowing us to determine the most appropriate treatment solution that aligns with your specific health needs.
Our Chiropractic techniques work with your body’s natural healing capabilities, which allows us to provide immediate pain relief, while also protecting you from potential relapses in the future. To schedule a free consultation at our Conyers Chiropractic clinic, call us today at (404) 602-0386.
