The importance of a chiropractic evaluation following an auto accident

by admin

auto accidentMany of my current clients have told me that when they went to their regular doctor following an accident, they received a brief examination, given some medication and released. Few of them were x-rayed, and even fewer were referred to chiropractors to detect spine and muscle injuries. A February 2001 study in the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology revealed that accident victims, classified as having “minor” injuries experienced a threefold increase of neck and shoulder pain 7 years after their accidents. Another study published in 1997 in the American Journal of Arthritis and Rheumatology found that 21.6% of adults with neck injuries (whiplash) developed Fibromyalgia with 1 year of their injury! Don’t just walk away from the accident and hope that you will be fine. You have the right to a complete chiropractic evaluation to detect subtle injuries to the spine and muscles that can result in an increased risk of headache, back pain, fatigue, stomach pain, sleep disturbance and general ill health years later. If you or someone you know has been in an auto accident, call our office today at 206-860-9090 to schedule a chiropractic evaluation. Take control of your healthcare, choose chiropractic!
