Auto Accident Back Pain Years Later
With current legislation mandating the use of seat belts, an increased number of neck and back injuries have been reported when seat belts are used. While these injuries may be less significant than in unrestricted accidents, health care providers must address these potentially lifelong problems and not dismiss them as merely "Whiplash". Many cases of tension headache and Cervical Migraine may be the result of a neck injury that may have been forgotten or simply dismissed as trivial by the patient-according to a study published in Spine. In the article, Dr. MacNab reviewed 266 cases and found at least 45% continued to have symptoms 2 years following the settlement of court actions. Most people that are involved in "minor" rear-end collisions do not realize the potential for injury to the spine. If pain does not immediately ensue, the incident may be forgotten.


WHAT EXACTLY IS SCIATICA
Sciatica is the inflammation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the largest and longest nerve in the entire body. It extends from the spinal cord all the way down the legs to the feet and toes. The sciatic nerve helps you to "run for the bus" and "wiggle your toes in the sand".


That Tingling Feeling
The foot is a remarkable mechanism and is as complex as any system in the body. Containing 26 bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, a complicated nerve supply; it isn't surprising that it is reported that 75% of Americans complain of foot problems each year.

Pain is a familiar symptom. What about a "Tingling Sensation" that doesn't hurt, but keeps recurring. We've heard people say: "Don't worry about it. Your foot's just asleep." That is a familiar sensation to us all. You cross your leg and then find that it has gone numb. The ensuing "pins and needles" sensation is referred to as "gone to sleep."



Scientist Found About Back Pain
In the last 20 years, the interest the scientific community has in chiropractic has increased as more and more people have chosen chiropractic care to improve their health. According to an extensive research paper entitled, "Chiropractic in the United States, Training, Practice, and Research" compiled using a grant from the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR); patient satisfaction is bringing people to chiropractic care. The AHCPR investigators realized that as soon as research got underway, studies immediately began to document the major roll chiropractic plays in the care of people with back and neck problems. These studies document high levels of patient satisfaction. Others show that satisfaction in chiropractic for back care is much higher in some aspects than satisfaction in conventional medical treatments.
