Denver Chiropractor Investigates Drugs for Denver Whiplash

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), fatal drug reactions to prescription and nonprescription medications now rank among the leading causes of death in the United States today.  The estimated number of complications from pharmaceuticals is over 2 million a year, and the problem is getting worse.  If anything, these adverse drug reactions are under reported.

There are several reasons why we suffer so many drug reactions;

  • Clinical trials for drugs do not include children and the elderly who can be much more susceptible to drug complications,
  • Poor results of clinical trials are quashed by drug manufacturers,
  • Some people are just very sensitive to medicines,
  • Drugs can interact with each other, for example alcohol and even certain foods can cause dangerous side effects, and
  • Wrong drug or the wrong dosage can be dispensed to patients.

A common side effect particularly for people suffering from Denver accidents or Denver whiplash is gastrointestinal bleeding.  This is brought on by the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).  For example the following medications can cause your guts to bleed;

  • Aspirin,
  • Ibuprofen, and
  • Naproxen

These medications are frequently dispensed in cases of car accidents in Denver.  Reactions to NSAIDS are one of the primary reasons people are hospitalized.  They kill over 30,000 people a year in the U.S. and cost millions of dollars in increased healthcare costs.

Care Chiropractic Surprisingly acetaminophen the active ingredient in Tylenol is ranked number five on the fatal drug reaction list.

Lacking extensive knowledge of Denver whiplash injuries ordinary doctors reach for their prescription pads and sometimes fail to make referrals to Denver chiropractors to find a more natural solution to accident related injuries.  Denver car accident victims are like everyone else, influenced by the media to “pop a pill” in hopes their problems will magically disappear.

Although drugs have their place in relieving Denver car accident pain, they all come with serious side effects.  If you’re interested in a more natural way to address the cause of your Denver whiplash pain, call (303) 394-2273 (CARE).

Insurance pays for our care and you don’t need a referral from a medical doctor or insurance adjuster. 

Always consult your medical doctor before changing your drug program.
