On average almost 200,000 people in Canada are injured in car accidents yearly, according to Transport Canada. Of these, the vast majority were slight injuries that can be relatively easily treated – but the cause of the problem is not always addressed, and so it can come back...
Lower back sprains and strains, herniated discs and fractured vertebrae may result from car accidents. Other common injuries are neck strain and whiplash, where the neck is forced back-and-forth very rapidly, resulting in damage to the upper spine. If you have suffered from whiplash you will know the neck pain and back pain it causes. It can be highly debilitating, resulting in headaches, stiffness, arm pain, pain between the shoulder blades, and/or lower back pain. Most people treated by conventional medicine are just told to take a course of painkillers and wait for it to go away; but that doesn’t address the potential damage to the body caused in the car accident and the pain killers can help you to feel better while the problem is allowed to “set in”. What any car accident victim needs is careful examination, diagnosis and then treatment.
The Atlantis Chiropractic and Wellness Centre in Woodbridge is the practice of car injury treatment expert Dr. Ruminder Birk. Dr. Birk and his team of fully trained spinal care professional have helped hundreds of patients recover from car accidents and relieve their back and neck problems.
Dr. Birk says “Many people feel lucky to have escaped a car accident with only ‘minor’ injuries. They take a course of medicine and gradually their pain diminishes. But unless the cause of the problem is fixed pain can come later as the injury sets in more deeply. They do not realise that their car accident may have caused damage to their spine that needs treatment. Fortunately, we now have effective methods to treat it non-invasively and without medication. Using a combination of technology, we precisely diagnose the problem and develop a unique programme which may correct it.”
Anna P. from Woodbridge says:
“I was involved in a car accident last summer, it was low speed, there was minimal damage to my car and I only felt very mild soreness in my neck, so I did nothing about it. After a couple of months, I started to notice that my neck was getting stiffer and stiffer. Then that turned to soreness and eventually it progressed to pain. I hadn’t done anything to cause a problem in my neck except having that accident two months earlier where I thought nothing had gone wrong. I got pain killers from my MD but they really didn’t help and I knew it wouldn’t really fix it anyway. Luckily I came across an article about Chiropractic care in the paper. Chiropractic helped me a lot and made me feel great again! I am forever grateful.”
