The Danger of an Automobile Accident

Every year in the United States an estimated 2.35 million people are injured or suffer disability from a car accident. Unfortunately, even minor accidents can cause major injuries, with a significant share of these injuries stemming from spinal cord, neck and back injuries.

Perhaps the most common injury is whiplash. In fact, 90 percent of auto accident patients complain of some form of whiplash. It may come as a surprise for many, but many whiplash symptoms only develop weeks after the initial accident. Whiplash is a generalized term to cover may spinal cord and neck injuries, including lower back pain, arm and shoulder pain, muscle weakness, numbness, dizziness, and headache. In other words, whiplash can have a serious impact across the body.

How Skocik Chiropractic Can Help

It’s important to understand that chiropractic care is considered the top method you can use to minimize long-term pain and damage from whiplash and other car accident injuries. At Skocik Chiropractic, our team of medical professionals led by Dr. Albert Skocik utilizes their training and experience to correct the damage whiplash has done to you. Dr. Skocik takes a “whole body” approach to chiropractic care for whiplash, and understands how all the working parts of the body, including the muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, spine, and nervous system are connected together.

With this knowledge, our team at Skocik Chiropractic can apply effective treatment to whiplash through spinal decompression, trigger point massage, and structured exercise programs to target your unique type of whiplash.

We also provide you a clear nutrition program to help you build up strength and ensure that your muscle groups have the nutrients and amino acids necessary for faster repair. THOR laser therapy can also be employed, which helps speed cellular regeneration, reduces inflammation, and helps tissue naturally repair itself.

Whiplash can also leave you unable to work and enjoy the everyday activities most people can enjoy in life. That’s why you need a chiropractic care practice like Skocik Chiropractic that can also ensure proper documentation of your injury as you go through the process of worker’s comp or during any legal process you may have following your injury.
