Injured in an auto accident?

Want local answers here in Asheville?

Would you take the advice of the prestigious British Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine?

It's amazing how a split second can impact one's life. One minute everything is fine, the next you are hurting for days and wondering if you will ever return to normal. Things you used to take for granted such as sleeping, working, family activities and even reading are now more difficult and cause annoying pain.

If you feel like this or have any of the symptoms associated with whiplash like neck pain, headaches, back pain, tingling in the arms or legs, dizziness, loss of sleep, or hands or feet numbness, you are probably suffering from whiplash. Whiplash is an injury to the spine caused by a sudden forceful jerking motion to the neck or spine.  Studies have shown that even a minor rear-end collision, where the other vehicle was going only 5 miles per hour can cause major spinal soft tissue damage to the person inside either vehicle.

Whiplash can severely damage ligaments, discs, and even bones. It can range from slight soreness and stiffness to excruciating debilitating pain. If not healed properly, painful scar tissue will develop, causing progressive arthritis resulting in pain and misery for decades.

So where can you turn for help?

The British Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine stated that Chiropractic treatment is "The Only Proven Effective Treatment for Whiplash".    Dr. Stockstad has been Asheville's Auto accident injury treatment center for nearly 20 years.  We have had the opportunity to treat thousands of your local Asheville neighbors who have suffered from injuries including those involved in automobile accidents.  We have worked with nearly every law firm in Asheville to help document and treat their injured clients. Our reputation is so strong that we have also treated many other healthcare professionals including orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, dentists, and nurses.  In fact, we have even treated personal injury attorneys and insurance company adjusters.

What is the best thing you can do now?

It is simple! Just give us a call at 299-4555 and schedule our Whiplash evaluation. We have seen too many patients that have suffered needlessly because of not getting their injuries properly evaluated and treated. If these injuries are left untreated, they will typically result in premature arthritis and cause permanent problems.

Does Insurance Pay for Treatment?

The State of  North Carolina mandates that each driver carry insurance that covers their injuries in the event of an automobile accident.   By law, your insurance company must pay for your medical bills, lost wages and even reimburse you for mileage to your chiropractic appointments.  If you decide to retain an attorney, we will even furnish them with all the necessary documentation to provide you with the best representation possible.

Look forward to meeting you soon,

Dr.  Mathew K. Stockstad,  Clinic Director of Chiropractic Family Practice in Asheville North Carolina
