Auto Accident Treatment

Were you in a wreck recently? You may feel fine immediately after the accident and assume that you are alright...but a few days later you have a headache, your hands are going numb, and you just can’t get comfortable in bed.

You are now suffering from whiplash, one of the most common injuries from a car crash.

The damaging effects of whiplash occur when a sudden, jarring movement of the head is sustained backward, forward or even to the side. The most common symptom of whiplash is neck pain, but you can also experience other symptoms like headache, dizziness, blurred vision, lower back pain and many others.

These are symptoms that Chiropractors, like myself, treat every day. The single most effective form of treatment after an auto accident is Chiropractic treatment. I utilize a variety of techniques to get you out of pain and back to normal. With proper treatment, most people can recover from whiplash within 3-9 months, however it is CRITICAL that chiropractic care is sought immediately after an automobile accident since allowing the effects of whiplash to go untreated can induce long-term pain.

First Time Visiting a Chiropractor?

Well first of all, don't be scared. This is a form of alternative medicine that utilizes non-invasive and drug-free procedures. Chiropractic care has been in use since the 1890s, and is based on the concept that vertebral subluxation, or dislocations of the vertebrae and surrounding joints, are responsible not only for back pain, but for general disturbances in an individual’s health and wellness. Another important aspect of chiropractic care is the profound affect on the nervous system and in turn, the health of the entire human body.

Patients have reported improved health with respect to migraines, digestive problems, sleep issues, anxiety, energy levels, asthma, allergies, reproductive concerns and so much more.

I use manual manipulation techniques to try to correct these subluxations and restore health to the patient.
These sessions, called “adjustments” are intended to be supplemented with coaching on lifestyle habits.
Relief can be maximized by making some simple changes like regular exercise, changes in diet and other holistic concepts.

I truly believe that a healthier and more natural lifestyle is the best way to improve the overall quality of your life - emotionally and physically.


My Practice Vs. Western Medicine

Chiropractic care acknowledges the self-healing capabilities of the human body and attempts to restore those mechanisms to achieve better health. Western Medicine takes a more invasive and aggressive approach by attempting to alter the functions of the body through the use of drugs and/or surgery in order to “fix” the defective part.

Unlike drugs or surgery, Chiropractic treatment addresses the underlying causes that have reduced the body to a weakened, pained state. Once these problems have been identified and corrected, not only is the pain eliminated, but your body is working properly, naturally.
In many situations, conventional medicine is essential. Surgical intervention has saved countless lives and many of the technological advances are simply astounding. That said, there are issues concerning the over-utilization of such impressive, yet invasive procedures. Unfortunately, when these procedures are overused, the problems created are often more damaging than the original condition. The same can be said about the pharmaceutical industry, maybe more so.

Constant use of prescription drugs often leads to dependency and ultimately substance abuse.
