Car Accident and Work Injury

Tag: Health & Wellness
It is very important to get yourself diagnosed as soon as possible if you have been in an auto accident, no matter how minor it may have seemed at the time, or have sustained an injury on the job. At first, you may feel ok only later to develop neck pain, back pain, stiffness, headaches, sleeping problems, fatigue, weakness, memory problems, blurry vision, and ringing in ears due to soft tissue and spinal injuries, which could take up to weeks, months, or even years! Your symptoms and pain may become worse over time without proper care and eventually become completely debilitating preventing even normal daily activities. Gentle chiropractic care without risky surgery or dangerous drugs, which can mask symptoms, can help with pain relief, increase mobility and nerve function, improve strength and stability, improve range of motion, and improve body mechanics. Essentially, chiropractic care can help give you your life back and improve your overall health!

Chiropractic Explained

CHIROPRACTIC 101

1. God put the most powerful healing force in our Brain and Spinal Cord (our Nervous System) and as long as that healing power can flow clearly from the brain to body, optimal Health and healing is experienced!

2. God surrounded that Brain and Spinal Cord with a bony encasement called the skull and vertebrae.

3. The vertebral subluxation (spinal vertebrae "pinching" the spinal cord or nerves) blocks the life-giving source of all Health and function.

4. The vertebral subluxation is the cause of sickness, dysfunction and all dis-ease.

. The chiropractic adjustment corrects vertebral subluxation, thus the cause of all dis-ease.

6. Chiropractic begins with and works with the source of life within the body (Innate Intelligence/Healing Force) and restores Health by restoring the flow of source within man; adding nothing, subtracting nothing to or from the human body, to make it well.

7. Specific, subluxation-based chiropractic gets the sick well, and has done so in a superior manner for over 100+ years! Read more »
