Even a minor automobile accident can have major effects on your
health. When one car collides with another, thousands of pounds of
pressure are exerted on the neck and spine. Whiplash can
occur at surprisingly slow speeds and is the result of the head and
neck being thrown or "snapped" back and forth very quickly. Even
small children, who can’t express their discomforts, can be affected
by such accidents. It is not uncommon to have a lapse of time before
the pain and discomforts begin. Through palpation, our chiropractors
can locate the problems even before the symptoms are expressed. It
is common for patients to say, "I didn't even know it was painful
before you touched there." Sometimes pains come on within days of an
accident, but other times it takes weeks, months or even years
before the damage is noted. It is important that everyone who is
involved in an accident have their spine checked by a chiropractor.
Receiving chiropractic care after an accident can make the
difference between complete recovery and lingering pain and
disability which can last years after the accident.
- Work Related Injuries
Chiropractic care has become the leading form of health care for
work-related injuries involving the muscular/skeletal system.
Workers' compensation studies show that patients with these types of
work-related injuries return to work faster and at a more reasonable
cost using chiropractic treatment versus general medical care.
- Sports Injuries
Sports injuries happen at all ages. Too often children try to hide
an injury so that they won’t miss out on an activity. Through
palpation, our chiropractors can locate the problems even if no
symptoms are expressed. We also combine the care with therapy and
rehabilitation, when necessary. Sports-related injuries usually
respond well to chiropractic's

Chiropractors are spinal and nerve experts. They inspect the spine
for what are called "Vertebral Subluxations," which are
misalignments of the bones of the spinal column.
They can put Direct Pressure on the very nerves which Control the
Health of Your Body and cause wear and compression on the disc.
These Mal-positioned Spinal Vertebrae cut off the Impulses which the
Brain uses to send Vital Messages that ultimately Keep Your Body
Functioning & Healthy.
If Left Untreated,
Poor Health and Symptoms can follow. The Fact is that Some Symptoms
Do NOT show up for Many Years after a Subluxation occurs. But the
Nerves will Continue to Malfunction and the Discs Will Begin
Degenerating & DISEASE will eventually set in !
