IMPAIRMENT AND RETURNING TO WORK ISSUES AFTER AUTO ACCIDENTS A recent review of published papers on auto accident impairment ratings documented a wide range of impairment after a MVA - 2% - 23% for car occupants and 2.8% to 46% for cyclists – with cervical spine and neck injuries being the greatest risks for permanent injury status. This led the authors to call for a global way of evaluating medical impairment after accidents to decrease psychological and financial burdens for both the injured person and his/her community. (1) In creating guidelines to oversee the care of traffic injuries, an expert panel found that injured persons wanted to partner with the healthcare team, wanted a better understanding of the healthcare and insurance system sooner after their injury, required support for their emotional distress, and appreciated straightforward explanations with easy-to-understand words.

GENTLE CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT FOR MVA PAIN RELIEF With our use of gentle chiropractic care including Cox® Technic as part of the treatment plan for post-auto accident spine injury, our Fort Wayne patients can be optimistic. Cox Technic is a well-researched form of chiropractic care that works to reduce inflammation and alleviate back pain. It is often used in cases of bulging and herniated discs, sciatic leg pain, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, persistent low back or neck pain after back surgery, and other types of chronic lower back or neck pain. The technique produces results by using gentle yet firm pressure to treat the spine. This helps to restore mobility, decrease inflammation, and reduce pain. Benefits Of Cox Technic & How Does It Work? One of the biggest benefits of Cox Technic is that it offers relief from chronic lower back or neck pain without using drugs or undergo surgery. During a session, the patient lies down on their stomach (or other modified position for comfort) while the chiropractor uses his/her hands to put pressure to certain points on the spine in order to attain the most relief from pain and discomfort. This technique has been effective for helping many types of spinal injuries associated with MVAs such as whiplash and herniated discs which can be very painful if not treated properly.
