Car Accident, Neck & Back Pain Years Later
With current legislation mandating the use of seat belts, an increased number of neck and back injuries have been reported when seat belts are used. While these injuries may be less significant than in unrestricted accidents, health care providers must address these potentially lifelong problems and not dismiss them as merely "Whiplash". Many cases of tension headache and Cervical Migraine may be the result of a neck injury that may have been forgotten or simply dismissed as trivial by the patient-according to a study published in Spine. In the article, Dr. MacNab reviewed 266 cases and found at least 45% continued to have symptoms 2 years following the settlement of court actions. Most people that are involved in "minor" rear-end collisions do not realize the potential for injury to the spine. If pain does not immediately ensue, the incident may be forgotten.


Fender Benders and Back Pain
Recently, a patient came in and reported that, for some reason, he "just wasn't feeling right". We discussed his life over the last couple of weeks and figured out, to me, the obvious reason for his back pain flaring up.

It seems this fellow was in a minor "fender bender" a couple weeks previous. He said it really wasn't much of an accident and there was very little damage to the car. He took his car in "just in case" and the only repair necessary was to have the wheels realigned. He added that he felt no physical discomfort at all right after the accident so he figured he was "OK".



Alternative Goes Mainstream
Chiropractic, herbs, acupuncture and other so-called "alternative treatments" are clearly here to stay. And boomers aren't the only ones embracing them.

Their children--and their parents-are trying everything from aromatherapy to yoga to stay healthy or get well, according to a new survey by Harvard Medical School researchers. The survey found that 68 per cent of adults have used at least one kind of alternative or complementary therapy. Nearly half stuck with one treatment for as long as 20 years.



WHIPLASH-I know what it is now
This is a daily statement being made by new members of the "Whiplash Club." The term "whiplash" is such a common term to the general populace, but only after one has had the unfortunate experience, is the true understanding really felt.
