Consultations. At our Tempe office, we take pride in the attention to
detail we provide to each patient.
Cervical injuries often overlooked in Auto accidents exams.
There are a few critical elements that are often overlooked by chiropractic
physicians when they examine patients who were involved in an automobile
accident. Most Chiropractors will do the basic tests like the range of
motion, cranial nerve test, palpation, examination of the structures of the
neck specifically the 7 vertebrae, and take x-rays. That's all good but if
you really want faster results but there are a few more areas that must be
examined by your Chiropractor.
Your Chiropractor should examine your cranium for cranial faults, these are
where the bones of the skull meet the neck. The trauma of auto accidents
may cause these structures to jam. Then they can’t move to help pump spinal
fluid through the ventricles of the brain. Your Chiropractor should also
check for TMJ malfunctions, again the force of the injury can misalign this
important joint causing several types of problems resulting in pain and
discomfort. Both of these, the cranial and TMJ, can cause many types of
symptoms like headaches, pain, fatigue, restriction of movement and many
other symptoms listed below. These are but two often missed injuries that
most Chiropractors overlook yet can cause continued and slow progress in
