Even a minor car accident can create major problems.
Often times people walk away thinking that they are fine, only to find out later on (even several years) they were injured. Specific upper cervical chiropractic can restore normal alignment of the spine and get you on the path to health and pain relief.
What happens in an auto accident?
When one automobile is struck by another, thousands of pounds of force are exerted on the neck and spine. Cars are designed to handle the stress, our bodies are not. Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are thrown or “snapped” back and forth very quickly. The painful result is injury to the ligaments, soft tissue, and discs of the neck and spine.
Here are the problems associated with a car accident.
Whiplash also causes impingement, stretching, or irritation of the nerves and the spinal cord. Whiplash can also cause headaches, numbness, pins and needles in the face, chest, arms or hands, anxiety, neck pain, back pain, ear ringing, dizziness, hearing loss and/or blurred vision.Too many people who have been in a traumatic automobile accident do not receive specific upper cervical chiropractic care. That is the reason why over half of the car accident victims never completely recover from their injuries and may live on pain killers for years to endure repeated surgery.
Upper cervical care and auto accidents.
Upper cervical chiropractic care can make the difference between true recovery and healing or lingering pain and disability. At Awesome Chiropractic… we offer a “Low Force” gentle adjusting technique that emphasizes a non-traumatic, non-forceful approach for spinal health care. This gentle chiropractic care helps restore nervous system function, helps heal sore muscles and damaged ligaments, and ensures rapid and complete recovery after an accident.
We specialize in the gently adjusting the upper cervical spine. There is no bending, twisting or “popping” of the neck. It is quite simple for the patient. People lay on their side with their head on an immobile headpiece. The adjustment is performed so lightly that most people don’t feel a thing until they get off the table. This way of adjusting the neck is called NUCCA technique, and it works Awesome. We can take care of people with severe head trauma, spinal trauma, post surgery, and debilitating injuries.
Insurance coverage and car accidents.
Insurance companies realize the many advantages of chiropractic care. Care is generally covered in full by automobile insurance policies, whether you are a driver, a passenger, or a pedestrian… and regardless of who is at fault. Our clinic will assist you in dealing with insurance paper work and filling a claim with your insurance company. Anyone who has been in a traumatic car accident, even if there are no obvious symptoms should have a chiropractic examination. The damage from spinal nerve stress may take months or even years to surface. A simple chiropractic exam and proper care can save an accident victim from much pain and disability later.
