Greensboro Chiropractor Tells You What You Need to Know About Subluxations

Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Mar 19, 2019 12:22:06 PM

In a perfect world, there would be no back pain.

We could sit at our desks all day at work with no negative consequences.

We wouldn't have to worry about proper lifting techniques.

And our backs wouldn't get worse with age, making our golden years more enjoyable.

Unfortunately, our world isn't perfect. And back pain is very real.

If we sit at our desks for hours on end, we will most definitely suffer from it.

Lift with your back and not your legs, and you're in for a rough few days.

And, unfortunately, our backs break down as we get older because they are at the center of almost every movement.

Life, in general, tends to impose forces of movement that can take one or more vertebrae out of ideal, centered alignment.

In the chiropractic world, a misalignment of vertebrae in relation to the next vertebrae is called a subluxation.

In the article below, you will learn everything you need to know about subluxations.

The average recovery time for whiplash injuries is about 6 weeks.  However, the healing process will vary from person to person based on the severity of the injury and personal characteristics such as age, mental health, and occupation.   

People who are more severely injured from the accident will take longer to fully recover.

5 Common Delayed Injuries After A Car Accident

Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Jul 20, 2018 9:37:57 AM

Car Accidents can cause serious injuries and emotional stress, even if the damages to the vehicle are not severe.

Each person reacts differently to a motor vehicle accident, which means some may experience immediate pain, while others may not feel symptoms until days or weeks later. Even some serious injuries may not present any signs until several days later. 

In many cases, the car accident victim will walk away from the accident with their adrenaline elevated and may even feel fine, but over the course of the next several hours or days, they may begin to feel a lot worse, until they realize that something might be very seriously wrong. 

Unfortunately, when this type of situation occurs, it can get in the way of not only your health and recovery but also a potential personal injury lawsuit. When you file a lawsuit, medical documentation is extremely important, and when you wait to be seen, or do not go at all, your settlement offer can be severely reduced.

Are Neck Adjustments Performed By A Chiropractor Safe?

Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Jun 18, 2018 11:57:31 AM

Chiropractic Care and Adjustments have always been questioned by conventional medical professionals due to the simple fact that alternative medicine and therapies are seen as less-than-helpful and potential scams.

Before strict licensing requirements, it was common for any fraudster to proclaim themselves as a "chiropractic expert" and actually worsen the medical conditions of the hapless patients who go to them hoping for proper medical care.

Luckily, times have changed and chiropractic care for neck pain and other ailments has recently gained much more trust in the medical community.

When done properly, a chiropractic neck adjustment is not only safer and better for the patient’s health but also comes with the benefit of having almost zero side effects that are commonly associated with prescription drugs (which often do more harm than good in the long run).

While it has its risks, the chances of medical emergencies caused by wrong chiropractic neck adjustments are extremely rare compared to the thousands of deaths caused by opioids and other prescription drugs deemed safe and healthy by millions of Americans.
