Spokane Injuries and Accidents Healed with Chiropractic Care
Are you or someone you know the victim of an auto accident injury? Do you suffer from back pain, neck pain, or chronic headaches and migraines? If you do, it's natural to be frustrated with traditional medical treatments that rely on prescription painkillers to "cover up" pain.
At A Quality Life Health Center in Spokane, we believe there is a better way to treat pain. Our chiropractor, Dr. Loren C. Miller, is a graduate of the Whiplash Masters Program at the San Diego Institute of Spinal Research. His approach to whole body wellness has helped hundreds of patients recover from serious a auto accident injury.
Following an auto accident, it is natural to feel soreness and stiffness in your neck and back. What many individuals don't realize, however, is that serious damage may have occurred to your musculoskeletal system. Unfortunately, most individuals do not experience pain symptoms from these injuries until weeks or even months after the accident - long after healthcare claims have been settled with insurance companies. If you have been in an auto accident, it is imperative that you receive a full diagnostic evaluation from a chiropractor as soon as possible.
Manage Back Pain and Neck Pain from Accidents with Non-Invasive Chiropractic Care
One of the most common auto accident injury is whiplash. During impact, your neck may be jerked rapidly forward and backward, beyond its normal range of motion. This damages the cervical spine and strains muscles, tendons, and ligaments in your neck, a condition known as whiplash. Whiplash can cause neck pain, headaches, and difficulty concentrating.
Studies show that more than half of all car accident victims still suffer from whiplash-related pain years after they settle their car insurance claims. Don't let this happen to you! Prompt evaluation and chiropractic adjustment from a chiropractor can help your body begin to heal immediately.
Lower back pain is also a common problem following car accidents. During an accident, the lumbar spine may be rapidly jerked during impact, which can cause a herniated disc to occur. A herniated disc is one that has slipped out of natural alignment. If this disc puts pressure on the nerves, patients may experience pain in the lower back, buttocks, and even a numbness or tingling sensation in the legs. While prescription medication can temporarily relieve this pain, medication can't restore the herniated disc to proper alignment. Without proper treatment, your body will attempt to heal itself. Unfortunately, this means the formation of scar tissue, which contributes to chronic pain. Chiropractic adjustments can restore alignment to your lumbar spine and help your musculoskeletal system heal.
If you, or someone you know, have been in a car crash, it is critical that a chiropractor conduct a diagnostic evaluation to determine the extent of spinal and soft tissue injuries. The longer you wait, the worse your condition may become, and you may lose the ability to gain full compensation from insurance companies.
