New at TheChiropracticImpactReport.com: How Car Accidents Can Cause Osteoarthritis

Danville, California (EastBayDaily) — A number of well-respected reference texts indicate that the incidence of osteoarthritis is strongly associated with single event macro-trauma, repeated micro-trauma, alignment problems, and age. Such texts include:

The Human Spine in Health and Disease, by Georg Schmorl and Herbert Junghanns

The Cervical Syndrome by Ruth Jackson

Anatomico-Roentgenographic Studies of the Spine by Lee Hadley

Managing Low Back Pain by Harry Kirkaldy-Willis

Dr. Benjamin Altadonna, publisher of “The Chiropractic Impact Report”, an online monthly source of auto injury information for the general public says, “Finally, there is a place to go online that reveals why chiropractic works, how it works, and how it can benefit car accident victims. I’ve created this website to give car accident victims the education and confidence they need to make their own choice as to who should care for their injuries. This site includes easy to read information on “Chronic Pain From Whiplash Injury”, “Neck Injuries And The Acceleration of Neck Arthritis”, “Pre-Accident Arthritis of the Neck”, “Healing Time For Injured Soft Tissues”, “Problems With Pain Medicines”, “The Benefits Of Chiropractic”, “Understanding Whiplash Injury”, and much more.”

This month at “TheChiropracticImpactReport.com”, the relationship between auto accident injuries and arthritis and according to accident injury expert Dr. Dan Murphy, D.C., “Biomechanically, spinal osteoarthritis begins as an injury or stress that causes local muscular hypertonicity, segmental joint dysfunction and misalignment. This early stage of pathophysiology is ideally aborted with spinal manipulation. Later stages of the osteoarthritic pathophysiological response, involving altered proprioception, muscle weakness, and reduced mobility from stabilization are also improved with joint manipulation, exercise, and targeted tissue work. The modern chiropractor is well trained in each of these clinical approaches.Additionally, today’s modern chiropractor has management skills in several of the systemic factors in osteoarthritis, including obesity, free radical damage, repetitive strains, and ergonomics.”
