Dr Spitz Has Been Treating Auto Injuries for Over 35 Years
The biomechanics of an auto accident vary depending on many factors. In addition, the injuries sustained in an automobile accident depend on several factors such as; size of occupant, awareness of impending collision, whether seat belted or not, direction head was facing, and many more variables. For this reason, to accurately diagnose the musculoskeletal injuries sustained in a car accident requires a doctor with many years of treating auto injuries. In addition to his training as a chiropractic physician, Dr Spitz was trained in a 3 year post-graduate neurology program, was an Intermediate-Level EMT volunteer and has been treating auto injuries since 1982.
Why Chiropractic Care for an Auto Injury?
When an individual sustains injuries from a motor vehicle crash, spasm and muscle splinting develop unequally on either side of the spine.
This asymmetric muscle spasm prevents the normal range of motion of the spine and misalignment’s occur throughout the vertebral column, especially in the neck. These misalignment’s need to be addressed via gentle hands-on manipulation or gentle low force instrument assisted manipulation.
The Examination and Treatment
One of our Bristol Chiropractic staff will take a detailed history of your accident. Then, one of our doctors will examine you to determine the proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Depending on your injuries, various treatment modalities will be used to attain relief and ultimately correction of your condition. In the rare event that you are left with an impairment, our doctors are fully capable of providing an impairment rating if needed.
