Chandler Pain Clinic Auto Injury

When the rains falls, our clinic expects calls from our regular patients and new referrals to address pain stemming from car accident injuries. When roads are slick and slippery, it is around 4 to 5 times more likely for an accident to occur when compared to calm weather. During the period of our past practice, we have thousands of car accident and personal injury victims.

Auto accident injuries are some of the most challenging injuries that we, or any other doctor’s office, face in our practice. The reason being that there is such a huge exchange of forces involved in the collision, you have vehicles weighing 4,000 to 6,000 lbs. traveling at 10-70 mph abruptly stopping in a fraction of a second. That is a lot of energy and it has to go somewhere, a good deal of it enters the bodies of the occupants inside the car. Imagine a pool table with billiard balls on it. The player strikes the cue ball and it in turn strikes a numbered ball, all of the cue ball’s energy and speed goes into the numbered ball and the cue ball as a result stops dead. The vehicle on the receiving end of the collision is the numbered ball and all of the energy of the striking vehicle goes into it. A lot of the energy is absorbed by modern bumpers, crumple zones and air bags, but there is still plenty left over to injury the occupants.

That is why auto accident injuries are termed as ‘whiplash’ injury, because the force of the collision striking a seated person causes their spine to be whipped back and forth like the tip of a whip. This ‘whiplash’ motion strains and can even tear the muscles and ligaments, it can also damage and shift the vertebral bones that make up the spine (subluxations). The spine is a very vulnerable area of the body because it houses and protects the spinal cord, which along with the brain, is part of the central nervous system. This system literally runs the entire body. This can result in severe injures of the neck, back and shoulders; nerve damage, neck pain and stiffness, headaches, shoulder pain and weakness, low back pain and spasm. As well as, causing neurological symptoms; dizziness, fatigue, forgetfulness, unfocused, and aggressive behavior. Also, the longer you have these injuries, the more established and permanent they become. At which time, the injury becomes chronic and harder to resolve.
