INJURIES: On the Road or On the Job

Car Accidents and Worker’s Injuries

We all know that unexpected accidents can bring our lives to a grinding stop in a matter of seconds. Whether it is a distracted driver, or simply a miss step at work, accidents happen quickly and unexpectedly.

And then there is the paperwork.

Injury reports, accident reports, police reports, insurance reports must be completed. Phone calls must be made to re-arrange schedules. Arrangements must be made for time spent off work, transportation, and sadly often last, medical care.

Unless they have been severely injured and require immediate hospital care, it is typical for individuals to "forget" about their own body's needs.

For a few days.

Sometimes it takes several days for you to feel the effects of a spinal injury such as whiplash. But the earlier you schedule and receive treatment, the better.

And we will help.

Let us help you with the paperwork for your car accident or work injury. We have years of experience, and will be able to walk you through the process of opening your claim. We know how insurance companies work, and what information they will be expecting from you. If you have any questions for us, please fill out the form on this page, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks for your opinion

Perfect Posture

Neck Strain ComputerIn the age of technology, the way you carry yourself may be more important than ever. Many of us now hold jobs which require hours of sitting in front of a computer screen and/or repetitive motions such as typing or using a mouse pointer. If this is you, make sure you are aware of your posture, and how it affects your health. Many aches and pains in your neck, shoulders, and back can be avoided by making a point to maintain proper, healthy posture. To learn more, READ THIS.

 

 

POP

“POPPING” Your Back

POPHave you ever wondered what makes that audible “POP” when your back is adjusted? It’s an interesting phenomenon called “cavitation”, and it’s not nearly as intimidating as it sounds.

 

A cavitation is “the formation of an empty space or vacuum within a liquid or solid.” In the case of your spine, this space is created in the synovial fluid of your spinal joints during manipulation. The “pop” you hear is this gas escaping.

 

Not to worry, though, this “POP” is simply audible confirmation that your chiropractor has successfully shifted your spine back into it’s correct position.

 

Just because you hear this sound does not mean you have correctly “adjusted” your spine, however. For all of you who try to recreate this phenomenon at home, beware. Your chiropractor has trained and studied for years to learn the proper and safe manipulation techniques that get you feeling great! “Popping” your own back can be hazardous to your health!

Whiplash Injury

Whiplash!

Whiplash injuries can occur in almost all car accidents and even in many slip and fall accidents. Frequently after a neck injury people may feel little or no pain for several days. Symptoms of headaches, neck and shoulder and even arm pain can take several weeks to fully manifest. If early treatment is delayed it may cause the condition to become chronic and even create debilitation.

Of all the health practitioners who treat whiplash injuries, chiropractors do the job quite well. One study found that chiropractors were effective at relieving whiplash pain more than 90% of the time.

I have over 25 years of experience treating car accident injuries and working with patients, attorneys and insurance claim managers to insure that everyone gets the documentation they need for a fair settlement.

My office is a multidisciplinary office offering chiropractic, naturopathic medical services, physical therapy, massage therapy as well as multiple other therapies such as spinal decompression, medical laser and ultrasound therapy.

The beauty of having your injuries treated in my office is that you do not need to decide if you need a different office for your pain or for exercise rehab; we put the whole program together for you, picking and choosing those therapies and prescriptions which would be best for you.

This is the way health care should be. If you went to a mechanic, you wouldn’t want to have to decide if you prefer the mechanic with the wrench or the one with the hammer. You want the one with all of the tools. That is what I offer at my office.

Low Back

Chiropractor vs. Family Doctor

A great article on low back pain was published in the December issue of the Premier Medical Journal, The Spine Journal. The article gave chiropractors a double thumbs up for most effective therapy for spine pain and gave family doctors who prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs, narcotics and physical therapy thumbs down for least effectiveness.

It was also good to see in this article that they addressed past articles where spinal manipulation was not rated as the number one therapy. It showed that these older reports were studies that used non chiropractors to simulate what chiropractors do. This latest study used chiropractors doing what chiropractors do best and the chiropractors were very effective.

In the family medical doctor treated group, after 16 weeks, 78% of the patients were still on narcotic medications, whereas in the chiropractic treated group it was only 6%. That’s a huge difference.

What I try to do at my office is to combine the chiropractic adjustments with physical rehab exercise, therapy medicines and prescription medications to get the best of all the therapies and to maximize your progress.
