PLYMOUTH, Mass., June 01, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Joshua Koenig of Plymouth’s Koenig Family Chiropractic, a trusted Chiropractic, weight loss and massage clinic, affirms the immediate and long term benefits of Chiropractic care following serious and even minor car accidents. According to Dr. Koenig, a rear-end automotive collision can cause substantial damage to the vertebrae, neck and spine ligaments, discs, muscles and nerves.
“We recommend diagnostic care and beginning treatment as soon after an accident as possible,” Dr. Koenig said. “Regardless of the severity of the collision, long-term damage can be done in accidents at speeds as low at 5 mph. Seeing a Chiropractor shortly after the incident will help identify any underlying problems and can help prevent long-term issues including back and neck pain, headaches and muscle aches.”
Dr. Koenig states there are approximately 3 million whiplash injuries every year in the U.S., with more than 45 percent leading to chronic neck pain. Rear-collision accidents are the most common cause of these injuries, and Chiropractic care can be the answer in many cases.
“It’s estimated that more than 6 percent of all Americans are suffering from Late Whiplash Syndrome,” said Dr. Koenig. “Chiropractic care, combined with physical therapy and professional massage, can help patients obtain much better results. We start each patient with an in-depth history analysis and examination before determining their individualized treatment plan.”
Dr. Koenig also warns that while medications often alleviate pains caused by car accidents, drugs can be a quick fix that doesn’t solve the problem, but instead only treats the symptoms. Overlooking the root of the issue can lead to stiffness, soreness, prolonged injury and even re-injury.
“There are many problems we can fix with chiropractic treatment and physical therapies,” said Dr. Koenig. “Taking a painkiller might make you feel better for the day, but solving the actual problem, and not just covering the pain, is always a better solution.”
