How our Chiropractor Helps Patients with Post Injury Trauma

Businessman Tired Working On Laptop



Could your chronic pain be due to an old traumatic injury? Dr. Chris Michlin is the only Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist in North Texas. Additionally, he also has advanced certification is whiplash care. Dr. Michlin frequently cares for patients suffering from chronic pain related to older injuries, like whiplash, that was never properly treated. In some cases, these patients may never have been diagnosed with whiplash at the time of injury and it is only years later that the fully understand the trauma their bodies have experienced. Atlas Orthogonal adjustments from Dr. Michlin are a safe, effective treatment that can get you back to health.

Could this be the cause of your pain? Here is what you need to know:

1. Even if you received treatment at the time of your injury, you may still need additional care

Unfortunately, conventional medicine may not provide the comprehensive care you need at the time of injury to fully support your body’s healing process. Treating the pain symptoms of a whiplash injury with medication, for example, will not address the root cause of your pain. Worse, this short-sighted approach could set you up for a lifetime of pain.
 
This is exactly what happened to one of Dr. Michlin’s patients, Christine, who both suffered a traumatic injury at the age of 14. This patient was struck by a car while jogging and landed on her head. While medical care treated her internal injuries and broken bones, it wasn’t until years later that she was diagnosed with whiplash.

 

2. It is never too late to get healthy

No matter how many other types of treatment you have tried or how many years it has been since your injury, it is never too late to experience the benefits of Atlas Orthogonal care. For example, even though Christine's injury had happened ten years prior, Fort Worth Atlas Chiropractor Dr. Michlin was still able to treat her using Atlas Orthogonal Adjustments. In just three months, she experienced more pain relief than any other treatment she had tried in the last 10 years. You can read more about her journey back to health here.

How Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Care Can Help Infants & Children

5


Did you know that Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic care is beneficial for not only adults, but also infants and children? The first trauma a child may face is delivery.  An OB-GYN can use up to thirty-five pounds of pressure to pull a baby out by the head with the head and neck rotated. While necessary, of course, getting a baby checked for spinal alignment is critical for good health. Colic, ear infections, and other conditions that are considered to be “normal” rites of passage for infants and children may very well be symptoms of nerve interference.

Dr. Michlin is the only Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist in North Texas. The atlas is the top bone in the spine, sitting right at the brain stem. Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic care naturally supports whole body health from within by reducing the nerve interference that would otherwise hinder communication between the brain and body and the body and the brain.  Incorrect alignment in the spine affects the brain’s ability to seamlessly send messages through the central nervous system. Think of the nervous system as a major super highway: if there’s a blockage at the first on-ramp, information is unable to reach its final destination, much less begin the journey! However, if you could remove this blockage, messages could freely flow along the central nervous system. The atlas vertebra is this “first entrance”; it’s the single bone that controls the alignment of the entire spine. The Atlas Precision Adjusting Instrument is gentle, specific, and reproducible.

COPD Success Story: How Our Fort Worth Chiropractor Can Help

4


A COPD diagnosis can feel scary and overwhelming. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with COPD, it's natural to worry about how this diagnosis will impact your quality of life. While there is no cure for COPD, with effective care and condition management, COPD does not have to stop you from living an active life. At Back To Health Family Chiropractic, our Fort Worth chiropractor and wellness team provide comprehensive care for patients. This includes Atlas Orthogonal Adjustments that may make breathing easier for COPD patients.

 

How Atlas Orthogonal Adjustments Can Make Breathing Easier if You Have COPD

Our Fort Worth chiropractor is the only Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist in North Texas. Dr. Michlin recently helped a 69-year-old patient with COPD breathe easier thanks to Atlas Orthogonal Adjustments. The patient had known Dr. Michlin for several years. On a particularly bad breathing day, Dr. Michlin offered to adjust the patient in order to improve her breathing. 

While the patient had no back, neck or joint pain, the patient did experience difficulty breathing due to COPD. The patient was skeptical about whether an Atlas adjustment would be helpful since her health problem with breathing-related. Frustrated by her struggles to breathe, however, the patient told Dr. Michlin she was willing to try an Atlas Orthogonal adjustment. After the adjustment, the patient expressed immediate surprise at just how much her breathing capacity had instantly improved. There is no cure for COPD, but as this patient experienced, Atlas Orthogonal adjustments can help make breathing easier. You can read her story here.

 

Why Choose an Atlas Adjustment for COPD

Atlas Orthogonal Adjustments are gentle, safe and effective. This upper cervical care brings correct alignment back to the cervical spine. The health benefits from Atlas Orthogonal Adjustments do more than just make it easier for you to breathe. This adjustment brings the entire spinal vertebra column into alignment, reducing nerve interference and enhancing your health. This "whole body" approach to care reflects Dr. Michlin's commitment to empowering his patients to live healthier lives. Ready to Breathe Easier?

Chiropractic Care & Autoimmune Diseases: What You Need to Know

3


If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, it is natural to feel scared and anxious. Autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS), rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and celiac disease can have a serious impact on quality of life.

Conventional Medicine versus Chiropractic Care: What’s the Difference?


Conventional medicine focuses on treating autoimmune disease symptoms, rather than the root cause. Doctors may prescribe medications like anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids or immunosuppressants. While these medications may help manage some symptoms, they are not a long-term treatment solution. In fact, the long-term use of immunosuppressants may even lead to additional health problems. Chiropractic care is different. While chiropractic care cannot “cure” an autoimmune disease, these treatments do focus on the root cause, rather than just symptoms. This holistic approach to care enhances whole body wellness from within and may produce the ability to go without the need for medication.

How Fort Worth Chiropractor Dr. Michlin Addresses Autoimmune Diseases


At Back To Health Family Chiropractic, our Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Chris Michlin and Nancy Michlin follow a whole body wellness approach to care.
  1. Chiropractic care. Dr. Michlin starts by evaluating a patient’s nerve and spinal health. This includes the Atlas vertebra, the top bone of the spine. A nerve impingement at the Atlas vertebra can affect the brain stem’s ability to send and receive messages between the brain and the body. This nerve interface can trigger a negative feedback loop, shutting down the body’s systems. Atlas orthogonal adjustments help to alleviate nerve compression and stop the negative feedback loop at the source.
  2. Nutrition evaluation. Did you know that 80 percent of your immune system is in your gut? In addition to Atlas Vertebra adjustments, Dr. Michlin will assess your gut health. The wrong food in the gut can hurt the body’s ability to function. A full nutritional assessment will identify potential food triggers that are affecting gut health.
  3. Supplements. If we don’t have the right food in our guts, our bodies will not function. Nutrition supplements, together with dietary changes, can correct these problems. The right supplements can bring balance back to your gut and support whole body health from within.

Atlas Orthogonal for Auto Injuries

6


Did you know that even a “minor” fender bender can cause serious damage to your musculoskeletal system, leading to months or years of chronic neck pain and shoulder pain? Whiplash injuries occur when the force of a rear-impact accident “whips” the neck beyond its normal range of motion. Unfortunately, many accident victims assume that neck stiffness and soreness is simply a normal part of injury that will improve over time. While some minor cases may resolve themselves in a few weeks, moderate to severe whiplash injuries will not improve without proper treatment.

 

How Atlas Orthogonal Treats Auto Injuries & Whiplash Pain


At Back To Health Family Chiropractic, our Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Chris Michlin holds an advanced certification in whiplash treatment. Dr. Michlin does not just manage your pain– his treatments relieve and eliminate pain at the source. Dr. Michlin specializes in the Atlas Orthogonal (AO) Adjusting Technique, as gentle and specific upper cervical care adjustment for bringing correct alignment back to the cervical spine after a car accident injury.

Here’s what you need to know about the benefits of chiropractic care for auto injuries and whiplash:

  1. Whiplash and auto injury pain will not “go away” on its own. Most moderate to severe cases of whiplash and auto injuries benefit from chiropractic intervention to correct alignment and eliminate pain at the source. Otherwise, a spinal misalignment will continue to compress nearby nerves and trigger pain.
  2. Atlas Orthogonal adjusting is gentle and safe. Atlas Orthogonal adjustments are gentle, safe and effective for treating whiplash pain. In addition to being a Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist, Dr. Michlin is certified to offer a wide range of full spine adjusting techniques.
  3. Treat your pain at the source. Pain medication simply “numbs” the brain’s ability to perceive pain. Once drugs wear off, pain returns. Atlas Orthogonal adjustments correct the underlying misalignment responsible for your pain.

Fort Worth Chiropractor Uses Atlas Orthogonal for Sciatica Treatment

5



Is chronic sciatica pain stopping you from living your life? Many people wait for pain to occur before taking steps to treat it. The pattern goes something like this. First, you experience that all-too-familiar shooting pain running down your lower back, buttocks and leg. Next, you call your doctor or chiropractor in search of pain relief. Your doctor may prescribe medication to numb the pain sensation, and your chiropractor will likely recommend an in-office adjustment to relieve nerve compression. Unfortunately, a pain response approach to sciatica can be counterproductive. While these treatments do relieve pain symptoms, waiting for pain to occur does not necessarily fix the root cause of the problem and does not allow you to break free from the cycle of sciatica pain.

Don’t Wait for Sciatica Pain to Strike: Start Atlas Orthogonal for Sciatica Treatment Today

Our atlas orthogonal chiropractor Dr. Chris Michlin believes there is a better way. Rather than simply treating sciatica pain when it occurs, Dr. Michlin’s mission is to help prevent this pain from happening in the first place. Dr. Michlin achieves this goal through Atlas Orthogonal Adjustments. Whether you just experienced your first episode of sciatica pain or have been struggling with this pain for many years, Atlas Orthogonal adjustments can make a difference for your health.

Discover Sciatica Pain Treatment that Addresses the Root Problem

“Atlas Orthogonal” refers to the Atlas vertebra, which is the top vertebra in the spine. It’s critical to keep this bone in the orthogonal or neutral position. Once this vertebra becomes misaligned, the body has no choice but to try to compensate by aligning the head incorrectly, which can cause a high shoulder, a high hip, and a shortened leg. Thus creating a “chain reaction” of misalignment throughout the body, including the lower back.
When the top "link" is back in place, the rest of the chain aligns correctly. Atlas Orthogonal treatment will bring alignment to your spine and alleviate sciatic nerve irritation.
As the only Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal chiropractor in North Texas and Fort Worth, Dr. Chris Michlin has helped hundreds of patients stop living with recurring sciatica pain episodes. Take the first step to wellness today: call Back To Health Family Chiropractic at 817-810-9111.
