Motor Vehicle Accidents and Chiropractic Care

Did you know that you can be injured in a low speed car collision? When I say low speed, I am talking about 3 mph. Not only is it probable it is possible and it happens to individuals all the time. Whiplash injuries can occur at these low speeds. Let me explain this concept. A person's head weighs 8 to 12 pounds by the earth's gravitational pull. Upon impact, a person's head moves 7 to 8 times the speed of impact toward the direction of impact. Then the recoil effect takes place and literally slingshots the head away from the point of impact or in the opposite direction creating the whiplash effect. Not only is the head affected, but the entire spine from the first vertebral segment to the bottom. Some injuries can be worse than others depending if the person involved in the collision was bracing for impact, if they had their foot on the brake at the time of impact, or if they had their head or body turned at the time of impact. Sometimes the head strikes the glass window or the steering wheel. Most people's knees are driving through the dash board. All things must be considered when assessing a person's injuries when they have been involved in a motor vehicle collision.


Soft tissue injuries such as muscle, tendon, and ligament can be damaged during the accident. These soft tissue injures, no matter how serious, take time to heal. Studies show that these soft tissue injuries take between 6-8 months to fully heal and recover.


It is very important to seek treatment for your injuries sooner rather than later. Most individuals will wait two or three weeks before they seek medical treatment. The faster you can get in to see your chiropractor to begin treatment the better your prognosis and faster recovery time. It's common if you don't have any symptoms right after an accident. The symptoms typically appear and manifest the next day or a few days later. At High Caliber Chiropractic, LLC Dr. Ryan has treated hundreds if not thousands of personal injury patients over the years. Medpay is billed first because it is allocated to every Coloradoan's auto insurance policy to pay for hospital bills, ambulance rides, and chiropractic care. Medpay is designed to get the patient back on their feet to return to pre-accident status as soon as possible. Most people don't know they even have Medpay on their auto insurance policy. The Medpay can cover all of your medical expenses and chiropractic care too. Give Dr. Ryan a call for a consultation and exam at 720-505-1221.

Testimonials

  • I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received.

  • I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible.

  • Dr. Anderson has allowed me to be headache free for quite some time now. I used to have daily nagging headaches that often would turn into a migraine leaving me unable to function. For the longest time, I thought I could just keep taking medication to have the pain subside.
