Each year there are more than 12 million motor vehicle accidents in the U.S., involving more than 20 million vehicles. Dr. James Merrick and his staff at Merrick Chiropractic Center in Everett, WA are helping local patients who have residual injuries from car accidents find natural, drug-free solutions for treating their pain. According to the Insurance Research Council, almost a third of all those injured in a motor vehicle accident seek treatment from chiropractic doctors. Dr. Merrick and his staff help patients find relief from auto accident injuries using hands-on treatments and therapies for conditions like sprains, strains, whiplash, and spinal injuries.
Several studies have been conducted about chiropractic care and auto injuries. The results show that many individuals injured in motor vehicle accidents preferred chiropractic care over other treatments for their injuries, reporting that those who sought chiropractic care had extremely high satisfaction rates.
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries that occur in motor vehicle accidents, particularly those that involve a type of rear impact. This causes an injury to the neck due to the sudden jolt of impact that can have minor, short-lived symptoms or long-term complications that last for years, depending on the extent of the accident. Those who experience whiplash can suffer from headaches, joint dysfunction, disc herniation, faulty movement patterns, chronic pain, and even cognitive dysfunction. Dr. Merrick and his staff help patients with whiplash using treatments such as manipulation, muscle relaxation/stimulation/exercises, and ergonomic lifestyle changes.
Others who have been involved in auto accidents may experience residual spinal and lower back pain as a result of their injuries. These symptoms can be debilitating in some instances, keeping patients from doing daily, menial tasks and completing daily responsibilities at home and at work. Dr. Merrick is trained in treating spinal injuries with chiropractic techniques that prevent patients from having to turn to drugs or surgery to manage their pain. The methods and techniques Dr. Merrick uses addresses the root cause of the patientâ€™s pain and injury rather than just masking the symptoms caused by the injury itself.
Dr. Merrick offers evaluations for patients who have been involved in auto accidents to determine how their condition may be helped by the chiropractic services offered at Merrick Chiropractic Center. Dr. Merrick and his staff work with insurance companies and claims to ensure that patients get the best care possible.
