Auto Injuries

Accidents, Injuries, and Chiropractic

Our Dangerous World

Although accidents may be unavoidable, much of the physical damage and suffering resulting from accidental injuries can, in many cases, be avoided with chiropractic care.

Anyone who has been in an accident should make sure that the trauma has not misaligned their spinal column. Vertebral misalignments upset body balance and can cause malfunction and disease

Anyone who has been in an accident needs a chiropractic spinal check-up to ensure their spine is free from these abnormalities. Only a chiropractor is trained to analyze the spine in this way.

Most accidents are minor. In those cases chiropractic care should be sought out as quickly as possible. Too often severe health problems first began as a little fall, whiplash, bump or shakeup that may have caused some pain initially but was later forgotten. Many times chiropractic patients have discovered that the cause of their present complaint was a childhood fall or even birth trauma. They may have been no broken bones or serious bleeding but there was spinal damage that was never corrected. Often however, many people who have been in an accident never receive chiropractic care and never truly recover from their injuries. Within their spine is nerve pressure (or spinal nerve stress) that continues to cause damage and interfere with their body’s health and healing.
After the Accident?

Residual problems may linger for months, years, or decades after an accident. There may be musculo-skeletal problems or neuro-musculoskeletal (the nerves, muscles and bones are affected), commonly called “pinched” nerves. There may be pains or muscle spasms in the neck, shoulders, arms, wrists, hands, legs, back, face or head upon movement or when standing or sitting for long periods. The pain may radiate to other parts of the body. Victims may continue to take pain killers, muscle relaxants, and try various therapies or repeated surgery for years after the accident.
Like a Walking Medicine Cabinet

“I felt like a walking medicine cabinet”, is too often the lament of the post-accident victim. Sometimes they have flare ups every so often that may debilitate them for days, weeks or months. Being drugged all the time may deaden the pain, but does precious little towards healing.
“You’ll Have To Live With it”.

These people are often told that nothing more can be done, that they’ll just have to learn to live with their problems. It is an unfortunate fact but based on medical statistics over half of the victims of car accidents never fully recover under medical (including orthopedic) care. There is still pain, disability and other constant reminders that they were hurt and haven’t fully healed. These people need to know that a very important aspect of their care is still missing. The medical doctors don’t know to check the patients spine for subluxations, nerve pressure, and misalignments that may be causing pain or other symptoms and preventing proper healing.

Patient’s need to know that in many cases chiropractic care may totally eliminate or greatly reduce their problems safely, quickly and without drugs or surgery.

All people who have been in an accident or trauma should see a chiropractor to have their spinal column checked for nerve pressure caused by vertebral subluxations or spinal stress.
