Car Accidents

At some point in your life you’ll probably be involved in a traffic accident. Despite our best intentions, we cannot control our environment or other drivers around us. Car accidents result in thousands of injuries in this country every year. Many people injured in auto accidents might spend weeks or months in chiropractic care, dealing with those injuries.

Sciatica, sacroiliac joint dysfunction and slipped disks – you’ve heard these terms before and you might be wondering if one of them is the cause of your back pain. The next three blogs will focus on these specific spinal issues including prevention and treatment.

Palmer of Davenport, Iowa when, in 1895, he noticed that his janitor was stooped and discovered one of the man’s vertebrae was out of place. The janitor, who was deaf, explained to the doctor that years earlier, he had moved the wrong way and lost his hearing as a result. Through a simple spinal adjustment, Dr. Palmer was able to move the vertebrae back into place and within 24 hours, the janitor reported that his hearing was back!

All of this time on our phones and tablets is leading many, particularly in America, into a more sedentary lifestyle.
