At the Chiropractic Clinics of Dr. Logan we perform a variety of chiropractic services utilizing advanced chiropractic techniques. Through his several years of chiropractic practice Dr Logan has gained awareness of the damage that can be suffered due to car accidents. As a result, the chiropractic clinics of Dr. Logan specialize in car accidents and traffic accident and their injury treatment.
Motor vehicle accidents can cause injuries (whiplash) thatmust be treated. But not all treatments work. Hard medical evidence suggests that certain types of treatment are far superior at treating this problem. Untreated and poorly treated cases of whiplash result in life long problems and suffering. It is estimated that 1% of the entire US population suffers from chronic headaches as the result of auto accident injuries otherwise known as whiplash. That means millions of headache sufferers are directly caused by auto accidents.
Improperly treated auto accident injury victims are more prone to long-term health problems such as premature osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease. One study indicated a 600% chance of early osteoarthritis following car accident injuries if just one key finding was present on x-ray.
Unfortunately, HMO doctors, your family medical physician and even your general chiropractor are likely unaware of all the complexities involved in this type of injury. The result is improper treatment that does not address the important structural and functional damage that has occurred as a result of the car accident induced injury. Several medical and scientific studies have proven chiropractic to be superior at treating auto accident injuries or whiplash.
A study by Woodward, Cook, Gargan and Bannister found 93% of the patients studied under chiropractic care for chronic whiplash injuries had improved. They further stated “…no conventional (medical) treatment has proven to be effective in these established chronic cases.”
The problem is that even a good general chiropractor may not be a true specialist in car accident injury treatment and may overlook vital aspects of proper whiplash management. In order to avoid becoming one of the 25-40% of car accident injury victims whose pain becomes permanent or the 1% who suffers from chronic disabling headaches, then you’ll want to be sure your treating doctor is a true car accident injury treatment specialist. If you have been involved in an accident, traffic accident or other types of motor vehicle accidents please feel free contact us about your traffic accident and related pain.
