Thanks to the growing number of distracted drivers on our roads, we are witnessing a significant rise in auto accident injuries.
While a small fraction of these accidents are actually life-threatening — requiring emergency care — the vast majority of accidents are classified as minor, resulting in moderate property damage, and injuries such as whiplash, neck and back pain, as well as headaches and general body discomfort.
In many cases, car accident victims walk away from the scene unscathed, simply dismissing these common symptoms as nothing more than just a temporary inconvenience, and assuming the pain will eventually go away on its own. Unfortunately, though, spinal misalignments are a lot more serious than most think, and never go away on their own. As a matter of fact, if left untreated, spinal misalignments get worse over time, resulting in much more serious health problems down the road.
Dr. John Artis understands that even the smallest discomfort could be a sign of more serious spinal damage below the surface. He is an expert in auto accident chiropractic and has a great deal of experience in pinpointing the exact source of misalignment and developing a custom treatment plan to address it.
Through digital x-rays and a thorough spinal exam, Dr. Artis will determine the severity of the problem, then recommend appropriate treatment which may consist of adjustments, traction, decompression, and rehabilitative exercises to restore the spine back to its original curvature.
Much like a kink in a garden hose that prevents water from flowing properly, a spinal misalignment can easily block or hinder nerve energy from flowing to various body parts and organs, resulting in not just pain, but much more serious health issues including organ dysfunction. This is why seeing a professional auto accident chiropractor is so critical in car accident recovery, and stopping the problem from becoming more dangerous.
