Instead using pain pills to numb your body there is a better choice. It is chiropractic care and rehabilitation. Not all chiropractors do the same thing. So it’s important to choose one who has the training and equipment to treat auto accident injuries. At Mahler Family Chiropractic Center, we use a unique approach to treating car accident injuries. Our methods are effective and we can often get you out of pain, restoring range of motion, improving posture, and correcting misalignment. Many of our patients have tried numerous approaches to manage their pain and symptoms including seeing their medical doctor, various therapists and even other chiropractors. Our methods are different and they work. We use a combination of conservative chiropractic care, which is drug free and surgery free, along with laser therapies and muscle and ligament rehabilitation. We treat each case individually and work with you to develop a chiropractic and home care plan that works.
We’re located in Wilkes Barre area Give us a call or visit us at our facility.
An car accident occurs every 2-3 seconds and people who have been involved in a collision will suffer some degree of trauma. An 8 mile per hour collision enough to damage a steel bumper, so imagine the damage it can do to the delicate ligaments in your neck. An 8 miles per hour crash can cause damage and pain to your spine. Now imagine what happens at 35, 45 or even 55 miles per hour! It is important to get your spine check following a motor vehicle accident (MVA) because the underlying trauma may cause symptoms week or even years later.
Too often people don’t seek treatment following a car accident because they don’t feel they are hurt but, the most common injury to the neck is whiplash. Whiplash is caused when the head suddenly accelerates then decelerates. The head may move backward, forward, or sideways or any combination of the three and that result in the damage to muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back.
Because symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or months to manifest, it is easy to thinking that you are not injured. Therefore, whiplash injuries need to be taken very seriously and checked immediately. The sooner these injures are detected the more likely you are to make a complete recovery.Unfortunately, by the time more serious complications develop, the damage from the injury may have become permanent. Scientific studies have shown that years after a whiplash injury approximately 50% of them state that they still suffer with symptoms from their injuries. If you have been in a motor vehicle or any other kind of accident, don’t assume that you escaped injury if you are not currently in pain.
Is health the absents of illness? To may of us we may answer yes but this is far from the truth. Health is the ability to Play with our children and grandchildren. It is the ability to smile and laugh with our friends and to climb that mountain or staircase when we want to for our enjoyment and pleasure. In many ways real health is tied to our happiness.
This may be an answer that is different from what we often hear but I state this emphatically for several reasons. If you are not living life to its fullest for yourself and others in happiness and grace then you are not living a full healthy life. The second reason is that our bodies are never devoid of disease, at all times of the day our bodies are removing cancer cells, fighting off foreign bodies (toxins, bacteria and viruses), and repairing damaged systems such as tendinitis, gastrointestinal problems, fibromyalgia and the list goes on.
So these two realisations bring use back to the question, what is true health? It is the body’s ability to adapt to the changing internal and external environment. It is not the lack of disease! Disease is always present. If this disease is kept in check by the body then we can play with the kids, climb that mountain, and laugh with our friends and family.
So if this is true health and you are not doing this today then why not. No one can heal you it is up to you to decide to heal yourself. As a chiropractor my goal is to help create the environment for this healing to occur but all healing is from within and giving to use by the power that created use. The power that allowed use to grow from a single cell to the great and wonderful human being you are today.
That means that your health is in your hands and the power to regain it is yours. It is my job and the job of all health care professionals to advise you of how to reach this goal but only you can define your true happiness and therefore your measure of health.
So go out today and start taking steps to be happy and healthy today.
