Auto Accident Injury? We can help!
Hello people of Metropolis,
Sometimes I forget just how powerful chiropractic is. Today I would like to share a success story about one of my patients. We’ll refer to him as Clark Kent. Clark was referred to me by our mutual dentist, Dr. Eric Mohr of Dean, Israel and Associates. Dr. Mohr stated upon asking Clark to turn his head right for a dental exam, he couldn’t move his neck. Upon making an appointment at my office, I found out that Clark had been in an automobile accident fourteen months prior while on the job for the state of Florida. He was sent to a workers compensation medical doctor.
An exam and x-rays were taken and Clark was given anti-inflammatories and pain killers for the duration of one month. For the next year Clark suffered from severe neck pain and severe decreased range of motion. Clark told no one for fear of losing his job. After my examination of Clark, I determined that he had a pinched nerve at C1, the first bone in his neck. Clark was placed on twice a week for two weeks of chiropractic adjustments, electrical muscle stimulation, heat/ice, and massage therapy. After his initial treatment, Clark was seeing results, and was approximately “30% improved.” Clark is now “50% improved” after his initial four treatments, and I see him transforming into the Superman he was prior to his accident.
This happens every day in South Florida and the world for that matter. Someone is involved in an accident where anti-inflammatories and pain killers are given to try and take away pain without trying to fix the source of the problem. In this case a pinched nerve at C1. Whether you are hurt from an auto accident, on the job injury, or sporting activity, remember to look for the source of the problem.
