Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most traumatic causes of injury to the human body. Research shows
that even low speed collisions where there is little damage to the vehicle can still cause significant injury to
the body. The most common injury in sustained in a MVA is whiplash, and can result from side-impact,
rear-end or frontal collisions. Any rapid back and forth or side to side movement of the neck can result in a
whiplash injury. The neck pain is caused by a strain of the muscles which then lock up the joints of the neck
causing severe neck pain, headaches, dizziness or any combination of the three.
We here at Just Right Chiropractic know that auto accidents are often stressful and confusing. Visiting our office will give you the peace of mind that your auto accident injuries will be handled in the best possible way. Our purpose is to determine the extent of your injuries and help you recover from those injuries. Often, two mistakes are commonly made - 1) The injury is not taken care of properly and 2) The victims settle their case with the insurance companies before getting evaluated from a chiropractor, thereby losing the right to have your insurance company pay for treatment if needed.
Individuals like yourself choose chiropractic care for treatment for your injuries because chiropractic care is exceptional in the treatment of soft tissue injuries of the spine. Since the most common injuries sustained in an automobile accident are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments, it's only natural that chiropractic care be your treatment of choice. Even small impacts, resulting in minimal vehicle damage, can cause long term chronic pain. It is important to remember the symptoms of whiplash (neck pain, low back pain and headaches) often take several weeks or months to surface.
Chiropractic care is safe, natural, noninvasive, and addresses the cause of symptoms. Our treatments also include active patient participation. While we do focus on eliminating pain early on, we realize that in addition to pain - optimal tissue healing, restoration of normal function, and prevention of future recurrences and re-injuries - are equally important.
It doesn't matter the sport, a collision with another person can have just as dramatic effects as a Motor
Vehicle Accident. Often times, extremities are also involved, and that is where we here at Just Right
Chiropractic are your best option for conservative care. Dr. Scott has extensive training in dealing with
injuries to both upper and lower extremities, and will have you back on the field of play in the shortest
time possible. It doesn't matter what your sport is or howcompetitive you play, let Dr. Scott and Just
Right Chiropractic keep you at the top of your game.
According to Websters Dictionary, an injury is:
1) harm or damage that is done or sustained
2) a particular form or instance of harm
When applied to the human condition, the definition is a lot more complex. Common belief links pain and injury together, but that is not always true, which leads to the problem with westernized medicine.
We have been conditioned by western medicine that by eliminating the pain, you eliminate the problem, but study after study has shown this to not be true. Conditions such as degenerative joint disease can be prevented through early application of chiropractic adjustments to address spinal misalignment.
