Corte Madera Chiropractor talks Old Car Accidents, "Arthritis," Other Stuff

It is amazing to me how people downplay their injuries from car accidents, especially those of many years ago.

Rear-enders, anything beyond a parking lot "tap," constitute a serious insult to the spine, and, therefore, the integrity of the nervous system. We are talking thousands of pounds of momentum acting upon your little neck in milliseconds (that's thousandths of a second). Even if you had no pain immediately after, or if your pain went away in a short period of time, you can still be left with massive Vertebral Subluxation Complex. This will effect your health, negatively, over the years. (This means not just bone and muscle. Organs, systems can be effected, allowing for serious disease to occur.) This will, over the years and decades, result in subluxation degeneration (what others might call spinal arthritis). Go to the MD, and he or she will try and sell you that your problems are the result of age. No, not quite. They are the result of the AGE of your subluxations.

Front-end collisions are generally not as bad, but still merit be checked. Broadside hits can be bad, especially if your car is not hit in the middle (instead hit in the front or the rear fender), causing your vehicle to spin. Rotational injuries are especially complicated.

You've had physical therapy? Big deal. Nothing was done for the correction of subluxation. You were prescribed drugs? Same thing. In fact, anti-inflammatories can make your healing more problematic. That is even more true if you were given a cervical collar.

The greater the number of years it's been, the greater the damage to your spine and to your health.

Get checked. Get adjusted.
