Bellevue Chiropractor Explains Whiplash Injuries


Hey guys welcome back, Dr. Kevin with Bellevue
Pain Institute. Whiplash injuries; where do they come from? Motor vehicle accidents. As
a diplomat from the American Academy of Medical Legal Professionals, it qualifies me as an
expert person to carry you through from beginning through end in your personal injury claim.
If you make this call, Bellevue Pain Institute, your first call, we’ll be able to put you
in communication with the best local lawyers if necessary. Many times, personal injury
can be easily walked through without involving the legal system. But when it’s necessary,
it’s necessary that you have the best, and we are in relationship with the best personal
injury attorneys in the area. Whiplash injuries, it’s one of those things that early detection
is beyond critical; the best day to get properly evaluated is the first day of the accident.
Accidents happen; in this country we’re seeing about one motor vehicle accident every four
seconds, every four seconds someone gets in a motor vehicle accident, and not just a little
fender bender, we’re talking about injuries that are caused by motor vehicle accidents;
whiplash injuries, hit from behind, hit from the side, hit from the front. If we look back
at our picture here, whiplash injuries, the only thing that’s truly moveable in the car
nowadays with our cars being so good, is the head. Also, we have this device in our car
called the three point seatbelt; it’s a harness that comes across the shoulders and clicks
into here, but as a driver allows that right shoulder to be completely free to move and
then we have a twelve pound head that’s going to keep going in the direction that it was
already going. So let’s say for example, you are seated at a red light, nothing is moving.
Suddenly you get hit from behind; the head is just going to stay right where it is. If
you took everything in slow motion, the head would just stay exactly where it is, the body
though, gets blasted forward like this, until the neck musculature reaches maximum length
point, at which time there will be microtrauma tears, then the head catches up with the body,
goes beyond (even if you hit another car or not) goes beyond into the hyperflexed position,
tearing all of the ligature in the back of the neck like you see here, and perhaps, maybe
even causing small bony fractures in the vertebrae. When’s the best time to figure all that out?
The day of the accident. Please don’t wait; people they get out of the car, they’re rubbing
their neck and wonder “well am I hurt? No, I’m not really hurt, is my car hurt? Yeah,
my car’s a little bit hurt”. Recent sciences show accidents as low as four point eight
miles per hour cause bodily injury to the occupants, not just the driver, every occupant
in the car. four point eight miles per hour. So that means that the car damage is not directly
proportional to the body damage. I implore you; don’t wait. Don’t make the lawyer the
first call, make us the first call. Let’s get together, let’s evaluate properly, assess
the true nature of the damage to you before the inflammation and the other damage becomes
permanent. This is Dr. Kevin signing off; motor vehicle accidents, personal injury,
it’s our level of expertise, we’re top shelf. Live large at any age.
