New At Dr. Dan Murphy Discusses Seat Belt Fulcrum Injury and the Cauda Equina Syndrome

Danville, California (EastBayDaily) — Dr. Dan Murphy, advisory board member of Dr. Ben Altadonna’s “The Practice Building Alliance™” is also a contributor to “The Modern Physician Letter™”…a 12 page report that educates medical doctors on the benefits of conservative Chiropractic care.

In a recent issue, Dr. Murphy reveals the correlation between seat belt injuries and Cauda Equina Syndrome.

In this issue, Dr. Murphy states, “There is no doubt that current generation air bags save lives when they deploy. They do so primarily as a consequence of preventing the front seat driver and passenger from hitting the steering wheel, dashboard, and windshield. However, the initiation of the air bag inflation sequence requires a certain threshold. This threshold is determined by the degree of the front of the vehicle crumpling. If this threshold is not reached, the air bag inflation sequence will not be initiated and the air bag will not deploy…The primary purpose for vehicle seat belts is to prevent occupant ejections as a consequence of inertially based forces. The experience of being thrown from a vehicle during a collision is often fatal or associated with life-long impairments. Seat belts are excellent at preventing vehicle occupants from being thrown out of the vehicle during a collision (ejected). Consequently, there is no doubt, seat belts save lives. However, more than half a century ago, it was noted that seat belts themselves could cause injuries.”
