This New Blog post from Dr. Jared Wilson, DC, MS at Gaitway Chiropractic in Spokane, Washington addresses the importance of being evaluated by a doctor trained in whiplash biomechanics and traumatology after being involved in a motor vehicle collision. Dr. Jared Wilson blogs about chiropractic health and other relevant health news. He is an expert in musculoskeletal injuries and functional rehab. He holds a Chiropractic Doctorate degree and a Masters of Exercise and Sports Science degree.
Over three million whiplash injuries occur each year in the U.S. as a result of motor vehicle collisions. Almost half of these injuries lead to chronic issues such as headaches, neck pain, back pain and shoulder pain, to name just a few. These problems can have significant impact on a person’s normal activities of daily living such as work proficiency, recreation, sleep, social interactions and more.
Because of the unique presentation of these automobile collision injuries, it is important for the patient and the treating doctors to be educated about the many issues surrounding whiplash treatment and related medical-legal issues. Unfortunately many car accident victims suffer without knowing that there is much help available to them, often times at no cost to them.
In order to address these issues and effectively treat persons injured in motor vehicle collisions, Dr. Jared Wilson has advanced education and experience in effective and efficient ways of treating these injuries. Dr. Wilson understands the wide range of physical injuries and clinical conditions that can occur as a result of these unfortunate events. At your first appointment at Gaitway Chiropractic, Dr. Wilson conducts a comprehensive physical examination. Dr. Wilson will even determine if your condition warrants the use of the latest imaging technologies such as dynamic X-Rays, CT, MRI, nerve conduction studies and others. He will make the proper referral for imaging when needed.
Dr. Wilson is trained in how to provide patients with the most effective and comprehensive gentle treatment and rehabilitation strategies (including nutritional supplementation and diet instead of medication) to promote optimal healing. Dr. Wilson also recognizes when conservative treatment is limited, and he strives to put together the ultimate team of medical professionals that are focused on helping you recover from these motor vehicle injuries.
