A Fort Worth auto injury is a vital reason to seek Fort Worth chiropractic care. Even if no back pain, neck pain, migraine, headache or other Ft. Worth auto injury symptoms are immediately apparent following the accident, damage could have been done to the neck and spine. Back to Health Family Chiropractic can evaluate and diagnose any spinal misalignments and inconsistencies that may have resulted from an auto accident injury. Our Fort Worth chiropractor can then assess which of our auto accident injury treatments will be most effective and beneficial for each particular patient. We offer some of the most advanced chiropractic treatments, including the Atlas Orthogonal Adjusting technique, and treat a wide range of conditions caused by spinal issues and auto injuries.
The common Ft. Worth auto injury of whiplash is caused by the violent and sudden motion of the head being thrust in any direction. Immediate symptoms often include neck pain, headache, migraine and back pain although, if left untreated, more severe conditions can develop, such as sciatica, abnormal blood pressure and Fibromyalgia.
Neck pain and back pain are also common following a Ft. Worth auto injury, often a result of a misaligned spine or vertebra being jolted out of place. Pain is an immediate indication that something is wrong and needs attention from our chiropractor. As if the pain is not bad enough, leaving a misaligned spine untreated can again result in more serious issues, such as sciatica, chronic headache, severe migraine and other painful and debilitating conditions.
Many Fort Worth auto injuries include a misalignment of the Atlas vertebra, which is the topmost cervical vertebra that supports the head. The 3-ounce bone has a tough enough job regularly supporting the head, which typically weighs between 9 and 17 pounds, but its job becomes even tougher when the bone is jostled out of place. Our Fort Worth office has the only Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor in North Texas, who focuses on the re-alignment of the Atlas vertebra.
Dr. Michlin employs the Atlas Orthogonal Adjusting Instrument, a gentle, percussion instrument specifically designed to guide the Atlas vertebra into place.
If the Atlas vertebra remains out of place, the misalignment can cause the entire spine to mis-align. This puts pressure on the spinal nerves that can cause headaches, migraine, neck pain and back pain as well as forces the body to compensate for the misalignment, often resulting in sciatica, blood pressure abnormalities, or the appearance of one leg being shorter than the other.
Other treatments we offer for Fort Worth auto injuries include full spinal adjustments, spinal decompression, Cox Flection Distraction and soft tissue percussion; treatments that can help spinal issues brought about by any cause, such as fibromyalgia.

Our family owned and operated clinic, Back To Health Family Chiropractic is here in Fort Worth, TX to address all of your concerns relating to car crash injuries and lingering issues that you may be experiencing.

Below are many of the questions and concerns that we receive from our patients who have recently been involved in a motor vehicle collision. It is our strong belief that anyone involved in a car crash, whether or not they think that they've sustained any injuries, should seek immediate and thorough health care attention!
I feel fine, do I really need to go and see my chiropractor?
Our answer to this question is an emphatic YES. Many ailments and conditions that develop after a car crash do not show any symptoms for a few days or so. There are some symptoms that may take years to surface. If you are involved in a motor vehicle collision, please see our chiropractor right away. Conditions such as whiplash often do not show any symptoms right away. When left untreated, injuries are likely to worsen and become more difficult to treat. Dr. Michlin, who has had advanced training with whiplash injury diagnosis and treatment, can help to identify any issues and start you on an effective treatment plan immediately. The sooner you come in after the collision, the better. When adjusted before the inflammation sets in, you will have better results. The most ideal timeframe is within the first 24 to 72 hours.
My car crash was a month ago and my back and neck are still bothering me, what can you do?
Lingering pain and discomfort are two of the most common complaints that we hear from people who have been involved in motor vehicle collisions. These symptoms and pain can be due to physical issues and damage to the spine, nervous system and surrounding soft tissues that have not been properly treated. Dr. Michlin specializes in Atlas Orthogonal Specific Upper Cervical Adjustments. The Atlas Orthogonal Precision Adjusting Instrument delivers a gentle and precise force to the top bone of the spine which is called the Atlas. By doing so it realigns the junction between the head and the neck at the precise area where the brain stem and spinal cord connect the brain with the rest of the body. One of the main benefits of chiropractic care, and specific Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic adjustments in particular, is the focused treatment of the underlying causes of any conditions, rather than just the symptoms.
What can Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Adjustments do for injuries caused by my car crash?
Misalignments of the Atlas bone are quite frequent following motor vehicle collisions. Misalignment in the upper cervical region of the spine (also known as the cranio-cervical junction or CCJ) can compromise the brain stem, blood flow to the brain and appropriate flow of Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) which may affect your entire body in a variety of ways. Symptoms of neurological compromise to the brain and body from Atlas misalignment range widely from lingering pain, headaches, migraine headaches and body aches to other, more extensive system compromises. After extensive evaluation and diagnostics, Dr. Michlin can determine if the Atlas is misaligned. He then uses the Precision Atlas Orthogonal Instrument to deliver a gentle, specific, and reproducible Chiropractic adjustment to the atlas in order to regain alignment and restore the body’s balance. Dr. Michlin couples atlas adjustments with full spine adjustments to deliver full body treatment and healing.
The use of pain pills and other potentially harmful medications is something that I want to avoid; are you able to address my car injury without the use of drugs?
Atlas Orthogonal Adjustments at Back To Health Family Chiropractic Center rely on holistic care that does not include the use of painkillers, potentially harmful drugs, or other toxic substances. Pain-free living is possible, even after injuries are sustained in a car crash. We are here to show you how! Our natural approaches to pain relief can often allow your body to completely heal without the need for any drugs. In the event that the injury is beyond the body's ability to heal naturally we will work with you and other health care professionals to formulate a comprehensive treatment plan.
