Auto Collision Related Spine Injuries 2012

2012 Auto Injury related Spine Syndrome certificate

Auto Injury Related Spine Syndromes 2012

At the end of May, 2012, I finally finished the 4 module seminar presented by Dr. Dan Dock. Here is the certificate of completion from CDI. It looks pretty good, isn't it. I have been taking Dr. Dan Dock's seminar since 2007. Overall it has been a great experience. The seminar keeps me up to date with studies, researches and different treatments in auto accident injury care.

Your first visit in general:

A detailed history of your car accident bodily injuries will be taken. We have to ensure the mechanism of the injuries correlate your clinical presentation and findings. Most likely diagnostic imaging such as x-ray for your neck and back will be done in the office. Mild gentle care will also be provided on the first visit such as ice therapy and gentle chiropractic care to relief pain. Seeking medical care is also recommended for pain control. Usually your medical doctor will prescribe pain killer, anti-inflammatory and/or muscle relaxant.   

What we provide in the clinic:

  1. Sports medicine chiropractic care: a combination of athletic training with chiropractic treatment.
  2. On site massage therapy: medical, therapeutic, deep tissue, Swedish and lymphatic massages
  3. Diagnostic imaging x-ray 
  4. In office exercise therapy for your neck and back to strengthen your muscles.
  5. Custom made orthotics(inserts) for your feet

 Why we are not your average clinic:

  1. Advanced training in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of auto accident related injuries.
  2. Experienced in effective communication with insurance companies and attorneys
  3. Highly recommended by attorneys in the Puget Sound area
  4. Detailed documentation of your injuries, which present your case accurately for compensation
  5. Referral network with local medical doctors for comprehensive care.

Soft-Tissue Treatment Is Another Form of Exercise | Bellevue Chiropractor

Soft-Tissue Treatment Is Another Form of Exercise  | Bellevue Chiropractor

According to Dr. Warren Hammer, MS, DC, DABCO, "Mechanical loading by a practitioner is a form of physical activity performed on a patient.

Mechanical loading is the principal way our body maintains itself, especially with regards to tendons, ligaments, bone, muscle and fascia. Lack of mechanical loading results in atrophy and eventual cell death. Years ago, anyone with acute lower back pain was sent to bed for a week. We now know that as soon as a patient can move with minimal discomfort, they should get out of bed and attempt the movement – i.e., mechanical loading. Thus, just rubbing someone’s skin or deeper tissues is mechanical loading that may be considered a localized form of exercise." You can read his article over here.
