"Unless they are bleeding, too often the only remedies drivers involved in auto accidents seek are physical damages to their cars, rather than to their bodies," according to chiropractor Dr. Cheryl E. Haugh. Haugh maintains that many live their life in pain, unaware that the benefits of chiropractics include improving muscle and joint problems and healing soft tissue injuries. Her book, Chiropractic Revolution: 10 Things You Need To Know about Chiropractic and Accident Injuries looks to give readers an overview of the healing and preventative methods of chiropractic medicine.

Chiropractic Revolution aims to explain the benefits of receiving this medical care and the wide array of conditions it addresses. As a treatment for muscles and joints, chiropractic medicine strives to lead individuals towards a healthier way of life as well as one free of pain, and often free of pain medications and their side effects.

Haugh extensively discusses chiropractic medicine's specific treatment of car accident injuries. She finds too many people are injured in car accidents every day and never receive the benefits of one of the most healing treatments available. She states that many are unaware that the jaw, lower back and brain are as vulnerable to injury as the neck in rear-end collisions. Haugh also claims that approximately four million individuals enter emergency rooms every year with automobile accident injuries, and very few are offered referrals for chiropractors to treat their muscle and joint injuries. Untreated, these injuries can result in a long-term loss of health and precipitate illness and other disorders like migraines and arthritis.

"It is time to share success stories, and the potential relief of often-ignored injuries that can cause intense nagging pain," Haugh says.

Chiropractic Revolution looks to offer readers a warm, conversational tone and is free of confusing medical jargon. It stands as an informative and important volume for those who lack awareness of the benefits of chiropractic therapies.

Chiropractic Revolution: 10 Things You Need to Know about Chiropractic and Accident Injuries is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
