What are the most common Automobile Accident Injuries your Fenton office sees?
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries that result from rear-end collisions. In a rear-end collision the body is suddenly thrust forward, then back. This can result in micro-tears in the soft tissues of the neck and middle of the back. Whiplash can result in severe pain in the neck and upper back. It can also cause headaches, dizziness, stiffness and tenderness.
What concerns do auto accident victims usually have the most?
Patients always want to know if the insurance company will cover treatment for their injuries. We work with a number of different insurance companies. We can walk you through filing a personal injury claim and help you fill out the appropriate forms. If your injury is due to an accident, you will not pay for any of your chiropractic care visits. We bill your insurance company directly. We also have two personal injury specialists onboard—Dr. James Ide and Dr. Scott Anderson each have years of combined experience in handling personal injury claims.

Why does Pain Free, Not Always Mean Injury Free?
If you have been in a car crash recently, but you are not feeling any or much pain, it might not necessarily mean that you are free of any injuries. In the days, even weeks after a car accident occurs, you might not really register the effects of the collision. You have to consider the fact that only about 10% of the nerves in our bodies actually sense pain, given that information, it makes sense that you may or may not notice an underlying issues for days, weeks and even years to come. So, unfortunately, a lack of pain doesn’t necessarily mean that your body or that of your child’s or other loved one’s, wasn’t damaged during the harsh, rapid, violent motion of the Car Accident. Car crashes can cause shifting in the spine’s vertebrae and disks, which can lead to long-term problems. While in an accident the neck, head and brain violently impact, usually with something in front of the head or body and then again when the head hits the head rest where it repeats the violent impact of the motion again. This process can cause major damage for years to come. Unfortunately, the only way to be sure of the damage done is to have a full and proper whiplash evaluation with an auto accident medical professional that is experienced in this type of injury. If these are not caught promptly, they can lead to chronic pain and lasting health issues.
