Best Care For Denver Accident

Best Care For Denver Accident


BAM! You just had an accident. You’re dazed and advised to go to the hospital to get checked. The hospital says; “nothings broken.” You’re released with a prescription for anti-inflammatories and told to follow up with your family physician.

Now What?

It’s been weeks and you’re slowly getting worse, not better. What started as headaches and neck stiffness has progressed. Now you’re feeling nausea, mid back pain, lower back soreness and your arm feels numb.

You’re getting nervous and rightfully so. The decisions you make about care during the next few days will be critical.


You could see your family doctor. Unfortunately, most physicians have limited training in this very special kind of injury.

What About Medicine For Pain?

As a society we’ve been programmed to take drugs to stop pain. Over 72 million dollars a day is spent convincing people that this is a good idea.

Popping pills is not the best decision. All drugs have side effects. Last year over 100,000 people died from doctor prescribed medicine. Another 2.2 million suffered complications that required hospitalization. Even if drugs help with the pain, scientists now know they slow down healing.

The most commonly prescribed drugs for whiplash are NSAID’s, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These are drugs like ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, and Aleve. Common side effects for this class of drugs are; ulceration or bleeding of the gut, and an increased risk of heart attack.

It goes without saying, there is no pill that can realign your spine offer after a wreck. At best they may provide comfort as your spine degenerates prematurely from accident trauma. No drug can ever put this right.

What About Medical Treatment?

Most physicians will put you on medication for a couple of weeks and hope your pain disappears. If it doesn’t they may order additional tests, or have you visit a specialist i.e., neurologist or orthopedist.

Unfortunately neurologists know very little about whiplash. Orthopedists are helpful in cases of broken bones and dislocations, but fractures are not present in most cases of whiplash.

What About Physical Therapy?

Physical therapists are skilled at providing heat, ice, electricity and uncomfortable stretches. These treatments take time, and don’t align the spine or take pressure off the nervous system. These procedures alone are not particularly effective in caring for whiplash.

How About Injections?

Steroids are injected into damaged tissues. Doctors familiar with these procedures estimate they are less than 50% effective and associated with serious side effects. The cost of this therapy can be from $10,000-$14,000.

Unfortunately steroids do not realign the spine. These drugs do nothing to mend the involved tissues after being stretched and torn. There are many side effects and dangers to this kind of care.

What’s Your Best Move?

Research performed by Dr. Collaca, D.C. founder of the Impulse Neuromechanical Technique shows promise for advanced methods that gently realign the spine with virtually no discomfort. Data shows this particular care to be safe gentle and effective in chronic cases of whiplash, resistant to traditional approaches.
