Why Chiropractic is Your Best Choice in Healthcare Following Auto Injury.
Even a 5 mile per hour collision can cause substantial damage to your spine!
Many people in Downtown Miami and Sunrise are finding chiropractic their best choice for pain relief following a car accident. Only safe natural chiropractic can get rid of the misalignments in the spine that pinch nerves and cause long term damage. These misalignments are called subluxations. Subluxations happen when the spine is impacted during an accident or slip and fall. Often, the cervical spine is whipped back and forth on impact causing whiplash. Other parts of the spine are also impacted by the trauma. Often discs are herniated, ligaments torn and nerves pinched. Creating stress that can even affect the brain itself. Some people who did not have a scoliosis before may have one following a car accident.
Many diseases begin with a slip, and fall or accident. Many people who go to their medical doctor are sometimes told they are fine or given pain medication. Not treating the cause of your pain can have long term consequences. Common symptoms first experienced by people who have been injured in an accident include.
Carpal Tunnel syndrome
Upper or lower back pain
Knee or foot pain
Tingling in extremities
Depression, learning disorders and mood changes.
Are you concerned about the best treatment for your pain? Here is what the British Medical Journal had to say in a randomized controlled trial of 183 patients with neck pain.
“ In a Randomized controlled trial, 183 patients with neck pain were randomly allocated to manual therapy (spinal mobilization), physiotherapy (mainly exercise) or general practitioner care (counseling, education and drugs) in a 52-week study. The clinical outcomes measures showed that manual therapy resulted in faster recovery than physiotherapy and general practitioner care. Moreover, total costs of the manual therapy-treated patients were about one-third of the costs of physiotherapy or general practitioner care.”
Korthals-de Bos et al (2003), British Medical Journal
The Annals of internal medicine found:
“In our randomized, controlled trial, we compared the effectiveness of manual therapy, physical therapy, and continued care by a general practitioner in patients with nonspecific neck pain. The success rate at seven weeks was twice as high for the manual therapy group (68.3 percent) as for the continued care group (general practitioner). Manual therapy scored better than physical therapy on all outcome measures. Patients receiving manual therapy had fewer absences from work than patients receiving physical therapy or continued care, and manual therapy and physical therapy each resulted in statistically significant less analgesic use than continued care.”
Hoving et al (2002), Annals of Internal Medicine
