Most individuals who were in a motor vehicle accident prefer chiropractic care for the treatment of injuries sustained is simple: chiropractic care has proven to be the best physical medicine for the treatment of soft tissue injuries, especially of the spine. Since the most common injuries associated with MVA’s are sprain/strains injuries of the spine (commonly known as whiplash injuries), it is obvious that chiropractic treatment is the most beneficial for your road to recovery.
With the hustle and bustle of life, it is no surprise that many Americans experience headaches.
Scientists have identified over 300 causes for headaches. Various pain-sensitive structures and tissues including the skin, subcutaneous tissue, muscles, arteries, periosteal bone covering, and the upper cervical and facial nerves produce headaches when irritated or injured. Fortunately, only a handful of causes are responsible for the majority of headaches.
The most common of these headaches include:
- Cervicogenic- problems within the cervical spine or neck
- Muscle-tension- neck and upper back muscular spasms
- Post-traumatic- following head/neck trauma, i.e. whiplash
- Drug-induced- from analgesic overuse
Chiropractic has successfully treated thousands of individuals each day to bring them relief from their headaches. The reason is due to the fact that most headaches have a spinal and muscular component which the chiropractor has been trained to identify and treat.

Neck pain affects a significant number of people every day. Recent studies have found more than 10% of Americans suffer from neck pain at any given time.
The reason is that the neck region contains many delicate, pain sensitive structures commonly exposed to abuse and abnormal stresses. Previous injuries that were never physical treated, poor posture habits, and prolonged sitting/standing are some of the more common factors in the development of neck problems.
The good news! – Chiropractic is one of the best solutions for almost every neck problem. Chiropractic is also found to be very safe in treating neuro-musculo-skeletal issues of the neck with no side effects.
