Injuries and Accidents - Accidents and Trauma

If you have been in an accident or suffered a trauma you need to have your spine checked by a doctor of chiropractic. Any subluxations that were created in your spine during the accident often remain in your body and prevent you from healing properly. That may be the reason why over half of accident victims never completely recover from their injuries and may live on painkillers, physical therapy or even repeated surgery for years. Sometimes they're told they'll have to live in pain for the rest of their lives. There are many articles published over the last several years showing the benefit of Chiropractic for trauma type injuries. Let us discuss your case, and we would be happy to supply your attorney or medical doctor with the most recent research information. Diagnostic testing Medically & in Chiropractic are often sub par in missing LIGAMENT INJURIES as seen ONLY in Functional X-Ray studies ( see

Since physical force from trauma radiates to the skeletal system and can cause spinal subluxations, a chiropractic spinal checkup is essential after an accident. Chiropractic care may make the difference between true recovery, healing and strength, or lingering pain, sickness and disability.

 It must be emphasized that chiropractic never opposes necessary medical care.

 In emergencies the first order of business is always controlling life threatening situations such as hemorrhage, cessation of breath, broken bones, serious contusions or abrasions, shock and the like, that is the specialty of emergency medicine.

Many lives would undoubtedly benefit if a doctor of chiropractic also attended to the accident victim. Unfortunately today, millions of accident victims leave the hospital with as much spinal nerve stress as they had when they entered. That's a big reason why so many people say, "I haven't felt right since the accident," and why they may continue to suffer for months, years or even decades afterwards.

Anyone who has been in an accident, even if there are no obvious symptoms, should get a chiropractic checkup in addition to emergency medical attention. The damage from even minor spinal subluxations may take months or years to surface and a simple spinal checkup today could save an accident victim from much pain and illness later.*
