Accidents, Injuries and Chiropractic
Accidents are unavoidable, but physical damage and suffering resulting from accidental injuries, in many cases, be avoided with chiropractic care.
Accident victims should make sure that the trauma has not misaligned their spinal column and caused nerve-damaging vertebral subluxations.
Vertebral subluxations are spinal abnormalities or misalignments and can cause malfunction and disease.
Anyone who has been in an accident needs to get a chiropractic spinal check-up to ensure their spine is free from any abnormalities. Only a chiropractor is trained to analyze the spine in this way.
In an accident, communication lines between the brain and the rest of the body can be seriously interrupted by vertebral subluxations.
Most accidents are minor and chiropractic care should be sought out as quickly as possible. There may be no broken bones or serious injury but there can be spinal damage that needs to be corrected. Medical doctors do not know how to analyze the spinal column for subluxations nor do they know how to correct them.
Millions of people leave emergency rooms unaware that they may have hidden spinal distortions that may cause severe health problems at a later date.
It is the goal of all doctors to remove any interference with normal life and create an environment that nurtures healing.
The body should receive the chiropractic care that it desperately needs and deserves. However, many people who have been in an accident never receive chiropractic care and never truly recover from their injuries and the spinal stress continues to cause damage and interfere with their body's health and healing.
Residual problems may linger from months, years, and ever decades. There may be muscloskeletal or neuro-musculoskeletal problems, where the nerves, muscles, and bones are affected. There may be nerve spasms in the body when moving, standing, or sitting for long periods. The pain may also radiate to other parts of the body.
Even after the best medical care, accident victims often continue to suffer from pain, weekness and disability. These patients continue to take pain medication, muscle relaxants, various therapies or repeated surgeries for years after the accident. That is why chiropractic care is so important - to try and avoid these issues. Medication may numb the pain, but it does little or nothing towards healing.
People need to know that although they have seen a medical doctor, there are still important aspects of their care that are missing. Chiropractors check their spinal alignment for spinal nerve pressure that may be causing pain or other symptoms and preventing proper healing. In many cases, this may totally eliminate or greatly reduce their problems safely, quickly, and without drugs or surgery.
