“The Well For You” with Dr. Garst

Summer is here! …and along with it, more summer actives, more summer fun, more summer holidays, and unfortunately, more summer car accidents. At our Clinic, we see a fair share of car accident victims and patients and know that even a little rear-ending can cause unwanted problems. First off, we always remind you to buckle up–you and your entire family! From senior citizens to baby-seats, follow all laws and recommendations for keeping your entire family as secure and safe as possible while driving on the road. Secondly, if a car accident does “hit”–get immediate help. Your hospital’s emergency room, your primary care physician, a local urgent care–don’t hesitate to get checked out, as things may be worse than they initially seem or feel. Lastly, yet equally important, consider chiropractic care as part of your therapeutic healing program back to wellness. The right chiropractor can work with your doctor, x-ray results, diagnosis, while providing his/her own consultation and findings with further analysis, tests, and treatment. According to Lifetime Fitness online’s article, “Chiropractic Care After a Car Accident,” and we agree, “Any body part that is jarred or thrown forward unexpectedly and beyond normal limits (in a collision or accident) can sustain stretched ligaments and even tears.” One of the most common and sometimes misdiagnosed results of a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash can cause everything from blurred vision to back pain and everything in-between. Like any physical consequence of a car accident, if left untreated, it can also cause potential long-term pain and possibly lead to other problems. At The Well Chiropractic Clinic, we are here to help. Don’t leave your precious neck and spine in a state of catastrophe after a car accident. We’ve got your covered, head-to-toe!
