ICBC Auto Accidents
It started with a routine trip to the store.
Suddenly you hear a screeching of tires and the harsh sound of metal hitting metal. In the split second before you can brace yourself, you feel your car moving from some unseen force!
Itís tempting to minimize your own injuries because your car has sustained little or no damage. Research shows that occupants can be injured considerably more than what youíd expect from a dented fender or a broken taillight.
The Medical Solution
If you visit the emergency room, you may be given a clean bill of health because you donít have any broken bones. You might get a prescription to reduce the muscle spasms caused by structural changes in your neck or lower back.
After what you've been through, you'll need a health professional that truly understands soft tissue injuries, spinal biomechanics and rehabilitation strategies. Call our practice.

Q: Why do I have pain in my arms and hands?
A: Because the nerves to the arms and hands exit the spine through the injured area of the neck, numbness and tingling are common. Even lower back pain can result directly from the trauma, or as a reaction to the loss of proper spinal curves.
Q: Why did my headaches start more than a week after my accident?
A: Whether youíve been in an accident, stressed at work, or over-exerted yourself in the garden, your body is constantly adapting to the environment. When your capacity to adapt is exhausted, symptoms can appear. This can take days, weeks, months or years to occur.
Q: Will I ever be normal again?
A: Many chiropractic patients report improved spinal function and a reduction of their symptoms. Those who delay seeking appropriate care often discover that scar tissue and long-standing spinal instability increases the recovery period.
