Automobile accidents are traumatic on a number of levels. Your pain is sometimes secondary to the aftermath of losing the use of your car, as well as the stress of dealing with your insurance company and possibly missing work.
Be sure to see your chiropractor before you make any major decisions or too much time passes while you are sidetracked by everything you have to take care of. There could be underlying injuries that a minor stiff neck is not allowing you to uncover.
Dr Carnes is certified in Whiplash Injury Biomechanics & Traumatology
Dr. Carnes recently became certified in Whiplash and Brain injury Traumatology through the Spine Research Institute of San Diego (SRISD), a research center devoted to the investigation of motor vehicle crash injury.
Dr Carnes became familiar with the epidemiology of whiplash and brain injuries, the mechanical factors of motor vehicle crashes, and the wide range of physical injuries and clinical conditions that can occur. He learned how to conduct comprehensive physical examinations and all about the latest applications of cutting edge imaging technologies such as CT, MRI, single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and others. Dr Carnes learned how to provide patients with the most effective and comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation strategies to ensure optimal outcome potential. The program also included an intense discussion of forensic risk analysis which considers how the various known risk factors can increase a person’s chance for injury or long-term symptoms.
“By understanding the unusual biomechanics of this form of trauma, diagnostic methods and treatment can be much more effectively administered in the clinical setting,” said Dr Carnes.
