Chronic Neck Pain

A Common cause of Chronic Neck Pain

There are over 3 million people that get into rear end crashes and suffer Whiplash Injuries. Only about 10% will seek care from a Doctor of Chiropractic. The rest of the people will not seek any care at all or seek care from inappropriate and ineffective health care providers.

From this group, about 43% will suffer with Chronic Neck Pain. This condition often leads to Degenerative Disc Disease, Headaches, Upper Extremity Weakness, and a host of other health care issues that involves the heart, lungs, immune systems, vision, hearing and organs and muscles of the throat.

More than half of the people that are involved in these type of crashes are women, who wore their seat belts, and with car speeds not exceeding 12 mph.

Unfortunately, most of these people do not seek the most effective care available for Whiplash; Chiropractic care. Research has shown that people who have seen Chiropractors immediately following their crashes have recovered enough to prevent Chronic neck pain.

Low Impact, Rear end crashes can cause moderate to severe injuries to anyone's Cervical Spine. Research has shown that speeds of no more than 3-12 mph are the most common speeds reported for a neck injury to occur.

Research has also shown that choosing to receive chiropractic care immediately after an accident results in a lower percentage of suffering with life long chronic neck pain and headaches.

I am one of only a handful of Whiplash experts in the state of Pennsylvania. And the only one who holds an Advanced Masters Certification in Whiplash and Brain Traumatology, in the Lehigh Valley.

What does this mean? Not only the best care possible for your injury, but the most professional and experienced care available today.

Have you been injured at work?

Scientific research over the past 10 years followed tens of thousands of injured workers that complained of back pain that occurred from an incident at work.

The results were that injured workers seeking the care of Doctors of Chiropractic:

1. Returned to work faster as compared to medical and physical therapy care.

2. Cost almost half as much to the insurance company, and

3. Re-injury rarely occurred.

So if your goal is to get back to work as fast as possible, Chiropractic care should be your first choice.
