Chiropractic Care For Whiplash Victims

Have You Been Involved In An Auto Accident? Most whiplash injuries occur while sitting stationary in your car, usually from a rear-end collision. They can also be caused by any force that causes your head to snap back and forth in a traumatic manner, even while playing. What happens seconds after the accident can have tragic consequences. What you do about it hours, days even weeks after, can forever affect your health. In a rear-end collision and upon impact, your body pushes deeply into your seat. Your head, momentarily isolated by your neck, delays its reaction while your body quickly reaches the limits of your seat. Your body then instantly changes directions, moving forward to the limits of your seat belt. Now, your head starts moving backward in the opposite direction. Unrestrained by a seat belt, your head is jerked back and then forward beyond its normal limits. Don’t be mislead by the minimal damage to your vehicle; people react differently than glass, plastic and metal. An immediate chiropractic examination is essential. Pain medication won’t heal inflamed tendons and ligaments. Muscle relaxers won’t heal torn muscles. A cervical collar won’t restore a graceful forward spinal curve. Specific chiropractic spinal adjustments help assure proper healing by restoring proper motion and position of individual spinal bones. Consider chiropractic and acupuncture to help restore proper motion, proper positioning of spinal bones, and to speed healing.  We can help you get well and stay well after the trauma of whiplash injury.

MN Chiropractor discusses knee pain

MN Chiropractor talks about knee pain. Usually we know how we got the knee pain.  Running, walking, jumping sports (basketball, volleyball), stepping off the curb wrong etc.  Chiropractic and acupuncture can be helpful for these acute injuries to the knees. But what if you didn’t know why your knee hurt?  What if the knee pain has been on and off for months or years?  “I just woke up with it” is  heard in the office for the time of onset. Knee pain can be localized and helped at the time of pain, but consider long term, or chronic knee pain.  If the knee pain has been bothersome for months or  years, it could be an imbalance of the kinetic chain above or below.  Meaning the joints above and below the knee are involved and are  re-aggravating the knee problem over and over. Consider Chiropractic and Acupuncture for taking care of your knee pain.  With an exam we can help determine if the problem is in the knee, due to imbalances with the surrounding joints, or both. If you, or someone you care for, has difficulty with their knees, would like a second opinion, call for a free consultation at: 763-323-3456, or email at:  info@champlinchiropractic.com for more...
