Common personal injuries
- The primary injury is to the soft tissues.
- The initial injury causes an increased mobility of the injured
joints (increased flexibility).
- The injuries result in substantial percentage of
individuals with chronic symptoms.
- The injuries can not be identified
with available imaging methods.
- With time, symptoms may
become chronic because of clinical instability.
- The most common site of injury is at C5-C6 level, and injury
occurs in extension.
25% of patients with
whiplash injuries will
progress to chronic
These patients injured
their intervetebral discs,
or alar ligaments.
These patients will not
resolve spontaneously and
they do become chronic.
Chiropractic solutions often resolve common accident injuries like whiplash
Chiropractic is based on two facts of reality:
Controlled experimental and clinical trials have yielded
convincing evidence that early, controlled mobilization
is superior to immobilization for musculoskeletal softtissue
- The body is a self-healing and self-regulating organism (if you cut
yourself, it will heal).
- The nervous system is the master system and controller of the body.
Therefore, if there is any interference with nerve function, there must
then be interference with healing and regulation. People do not lose their
health do to the lack of drugs in the blood, etc…Something inside is
interfering with health expression. Let me explain what a vertebral
A retrospective study from the journal Injury, in
1996, demonstrated that chiropractic treatment
benefited 26 of 28 patients (93%) suffering from
chronic whiplash syndrome.
- This controlled movement allows the injured tissues to
heal better and quicker
- This controlled movement improves the fluid exchanges
of the disc and synovial fluid, which reduces pain and
- This controlled movement initiates a
neurological sequence of events that
causes pain inhibition.
(Decreases the Pain)
