"fender-benders" can cause hidden injuries that can develop
into pain, headaches, and arthritis. Even worse, most people
who have been involved in an auto accident may not even know
that they've been hurt. Most doctors give pain killers to
hide these injuries. The chiropractic approach to these types
of injuries is to use specific chiropractic adjustments to
help return spinal function. After a thorough case history
and examination, the doctor
will recommend any necessary care to help restore proper motion
and position of spinal bones. If caught early enough, inflammation
can be reduced and scar tissue can often be minimized.
Whiplash injuries from auto accidents occupy the majority
of accident related cases which Doctorís of Chiropractic
treat. This is the nationís number one auto accident related
injury. We successfully treat many types of whiplash and motor
vehicle related injuries daily.
Running a close second to the whiplash is the seatbelt injury.
Although lifesaving, the seatbelt causes misaligned ribs and
vertabrae which in turn pinch and pull the nerves which are
connected to these affected areas. The result is pain. Why
go untreated after an automobile accident? Pain does not have
to become a way of life after an accident. If youíre involved
in an accident, whether it occurs on the job or on the road,
contact our office for a complete
post accident examination. It could save you from having to
say, "....itís never been the same after the accident."
