Local Amarillo Chiropractor Achieves Advanced Certification in Whiplash Injury Biomechanics & Traumatology.
Amarillo, Texas (PRWEB) March 15, 2014
Spinal injuries and mild traumatic brain injuries are on the rise, although the number of fatalities from motor vehicle collisions (MVC) has reached an all-time low in recent years. Innovations such as laminated windshields, collapsable steering wheels, more effective restraint systems, and an increasingly more crashworthy overall structure have greatly improved the survivability of these crashes. But the low fatality statistics tells only half of the story. Figures that are less often reported are the millions of non-fatal crashes that raise the annual estimated comprehensive price tag of MVC to more than $ 346 billion. The majority of these occur at speed changes of under 15 mph according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Three million of these crashes result in whiplash-type injuries, according to the Spine Research Institute of San Diego, contributing about $ 43 billion (12%) to this huge comprehensive cost. This is one motivation behind the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (http://www.iihs.org) practice of evaluating and ranking the relative safety of cars with regard to whiplash protection. Without a decent rating in this category, the car, SUV, or truck will not earn the Institutes Top Safety Pick award.
So why this high cost for whiplash injuries? Because nearly half of the victims require prolonged treatment and suffer long-term symptoms. Many suffer mild traumatic brain injuries as well. About 10% of the victims become disabled. And most physicians simply do not have the specialized training to provide the most effective treatment. Dr. Jeff Williams has been certified by the Spine Research Institute of San Diego as an expert in this very specialized area of science, which requires insight into the physics of the actual crash mechanics and the occupant kinematicsor motions resulting from the crashas well as all of the latest diagnostic methods and treatments approaches. For the past 15 years, the institute has been conferring this highest level of certification to only 100 physicians each year.
Local Amarillo Chiropractor Becomes Certified in Whiplash Injury Biomechanics & Traumatology.
3 Million Whiplash Injuries A Year from Vehicle Crash.
AMARILLO, TX – SEPTEMBER 11, 2013 – Did you know that over three million whiplash injuries occur each year resulting from motor vehicle crashes? Of these whiplash injuries, 500,000 people will have chronic problems and up to 300,000 will have some degree of disability. Apart from the effect on health, there’s a significant cost to society. Approximately $43 billion of total annual HARM is attributable to whiplash and related injuries. (HARM is a metric for quantifying the total societal cost of road trauma.)
Dr. Jeff Williams of Amarillo Pain & Accident Chiropractic Clinic says consumers need to be educated about the issues surrounding whiplash – both concerning its treatment and, importantly, its prevention. In order to more effectively treat persons injured in motor vehicle crashes, Dr. Williams recently became certified in Whiplash and Brain Injury Traumatology through the Spine Research Institute of San Diego (SRISD), a research center devoted to the investigation of motor vehicle crash injury. For the past 22 years, SRISD has focused research and education on the more common spinal injuries sustained in everyday motor vehicle crashes, such as whiplash and mild traumatic brain injuries.
As part of this intensive, four part training program, Dr. Williams became familiar with the epidemiology of whiplash and brain injuries, the mechanical factors of motor vehicle crashes, and the wide range of physical injuries and clinical conditions that can occur. He learned how to conduct comprehensive physical examinations and learned all about the latest applications of cutting edge imaging technologies such as CT, MRI, single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and others. Dr. Williams learned how to provide patients with the most effective and comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation strategies to ensure optimal outcome potential. The program also included an intense discussion of forensic risk analysis which considers how the various known risk factors can increase a person’s chance for injury or long-term symptoms.
“By understanding the unusual biomechanics of this form of trauma, diagnostic methods
and treatment can be much more effectively administered in the clinical setting,” said Dr. Williams.
About the Spine Research Institute of San Diego
The Spine Research Institute of San Diego (SRISD) provides research and education on spinal health and injury prevention, in particular, cervical spine injuries resulting from whiplash trauma. Since 1992, the Institute offers the only available multi-module training program for health care professionals on critical aspects of whiplash traumatology. Dr. Arthur C. Croft is director of SRISD and is considered a leading national authority on whiplash trauma. He is the author of Whiplash and Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries, published by SRISD Press, along with several other textbooks, chapters, and over 350 professional papers.

Amarillo Chiropractor and Staff Achieve Certification in Kennedy Spinal Decompression Therapy
Certification Course Taught by the Foremost Expert in Decompression Amarillo, TX (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
Jeff S. Williams, D.C. and staff member Linda Garcia were recently notified that they had passed the certifying examination of the “Kennedy Decompression Technique” course and earned the designation “Certified Practitioner” in spinal decompression therapy.
The certification course work was taught by the foremost expert in spinal decompression, Jay Kennedy, D.C., who has unparalleled experience and expertise in the field having treated many thousands of patients over the last 18 years while using a variety of decompression systems.
The topics in the comprehensive syllabus covered a wide variety of subjects including proper patient selection, patient positioning, treatment time, amount of force, degrees of angle and included 12 hours of online course work, a two-day “hands-on” training session in Dallas, TX, followed by the certification examination.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, traction based treatment outcome for herniated or bulging discs in the neck and low back. During the procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc region can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it. The vacuum effect allows the disc component – that has protruded or herniated outside the normal confines of the disc – to be pulled back within the disc.
Dr.Williams said, “Amarillo Pain and Accident Chiropractic Clinic is absolutely dedicated to providing quality care. We are patient oriented and absolutely goal driven. The Kennedy certification course certainly honed our skills. While we have been very pleased with our high success rates on difficult disc cases, the knowledge we gained in the process of becoming certified practitioners will definitely be of benefit to our patients. We feel that we have found a way and a technique that allows us to get better, more permanent and durable results for our patients in a more inexpensive way than before.”
Dr. Williams added, “We’ve seen too many doctors place emphasis on the type of decompression system they use and too little emphasis on developing their clinical skills. The Kennedy certification course teaches that high success rates don’t occur by pushing a button on a machine, they occur because of the skill and expertise of the doctor. It’s expensive and time consuming to get the certification for yourself and for your staff but I felt that it was a great investment in our patients and in their results.”

Amarillo Chiropractor Adds Area’s ONLY Neural-Flex Spinal Decompression Table.
Amarillo, TX, 9/18/12 — Dr. Jeff Williams and Amarillo Pain & Accident Chiropractic Clinic has recently added the advanced Kennedy Neural-Flex Decompression System to the practice at 3501 W. 45th St, Suite T in Amarillo, TX. Including Lubbock, Amarillo, and all areas between, it is the only Neural-Flex practice and is dedicated to helping their patients prevent spinal surgery as treatment for disc herniations, facet syndrome, sciatica, stenosis, nerve pain, radiating pain, and a host of other spinal issues.
This is unique in the fact that only a handful of Lubbock and Amarillo chiropractors are fully certified in spinal decompression. Dr. Williams and his staff have obtained the certification and are the only Lubbock or Amarillo chiropractor using the actual table and system corresponding with the certification.
Dr. Williams reports that they have already seen eye-opening results in as little as just one treatment. Says Dr. Williams, “We believe we can prevent many un-necessary spinal surgeries. We feel like we are going to be able to help the weekend warrior in Amarillo get back on the field. We think we can help get the Mom or Dad back in the floor to play with the kiddos. We feel like this new equipment is going to elevate the care of Amarillo chiropractic patients overall.”
Dr. Williams says that non-surgical spinal decompression is MUCH more cost effective than even the co-pay from spinal surgery. It is FDA cleared and should be painless. Combined with cold laser therapy, the treatment is durable and much more effective toward be able to maintain the results gained.
Dr. Williams also directs attention to the following links for more information:
