Hudson AUTO ACCIDENT & WHIPLASH victims: We can help you avoid years of nagging pain or serious problems!
Types of Car Accident Injuries
There are many types of car accident injuries:
The first 24-78 hours after a car accident are crucial. Whiplash and injuries to the neck and back can occur even at pretty low speeds, and are often not felt right away. Post-accident stress and adrenaline can often mask pain from a car injury for several hours and even days.
If you've been in an auto accident, have been diagnosed with whiplash, or THINK you may have whiplash or other spinal injuries, you can't afford NOT to see a qualified injury recovery specialist right away. Delaying your treatment can delay your recovery!
Protect yourself with early detection and correction Whether or not you have any symptoms now, if you've been in an accident- however small -you might have undetected structural injuries such as whiplash, spinal subluxations (misalignments), or bone, soft tissue, or nerve damage that could cause you serious problems and expense weeks, months, even years down the road.
Even if you didn't have to go to the hospital or you went and the ER physician or your family doctor says you're fine except for whiplash or other mild soft-tissue damage, seek another opinion from an injury specialist immediately.
Why? Because the typical ER doctor or general practitioner (internist) is not specifically trained in structural injury and its potential long term effects. Even soft tissue injuries, particularly to spinal ligaments, can have serious long-term consequences if not correctly diagnosed and treated right away.
HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT TO SEE A CHIROPRACTIC DOCTOR FOLLOWING A CAR ACCIDENT?
It can vary by the individual and severity of the accident, but within the first three to seven days it is generally recommended to see an auto injury chiropractor for a variety of reasons.From an injury perspective ;car accident chiropractors want to address the issue immediately to mitigate any further damage and accelerate the recovery process. Starting this process before symptoms peak can help aid the path to recovery.
From an insurance coverage perspective ; whether or not you are at fault, insurance companies give a relatively small window to seek care for injuries related to a car accident. As this window narrows, it can become increasingly challenging to receive compensation for continued professional medical care and post-accident therapy and rehabilitation.

WHAT IS WHIPLASH?
Whiplash, or sometimes called neck strain, refers to an injury of the neck that is the result of a sudden excessive force that causes the neck and head to jerk forward and then backward or vice versa, such as in an auto crash which causes damage to the muscle or tendons (the bands of tissue that connect muscles to bones). Similarly and yet different, neck sprains are caused by tearing of the ligaments (the tissues that connect the bones to each other). Both strains and sprains typically affect muscles, discs, nerves, ligaments, and tendons in the delicate structure of the neck and are treated similarly. These injuries can also occur in contact sports, other activities, or work accidents that might involve a sudden impact.
Although whiplash is a common injury experienced by millions of Americans every year, it can result in structural damage that is difficult to detect and correct. If not properly diagnosed and treated, these injuries can undermine the structural balance of the body and set off a "domino effect" that can exacerbate over time producing a wide variety of symptoms from headaches and extremity pain or numbness, to loss of mobility or even mental function. Whiplash injuries are a serious problem and 30% of whiplash injury patients still have problems one year after the accident.
If you are experiencing a headache that worsens or persists, have weakness or trouble talking, confusion, dizziness, nausea or are excessively sleepy, you need to see a doctor right away as you may be experiencing a concussion related to the injury which caused your whiplash.
Symptoms of Whiplash Injury
While each person will experience symptoms differently, any of the following could indicate a whiplash injury:
Will My Insurance Pay For Chiropractic Care?
If you've been in an auto accident, your insurance should pay for 100% care-at least up to a reasonable limit.
For other circumstances, coverage may depend on a few factors.
Do you have chiropractic coverage?
After diagnosis using physical examination and X-rays (CT scan, and/or MRI are sometimes also recommended), conventional medical treatments may involve ice applications, pain and anti-inflammatory medications, muscle relaxing medications, and/or physical rehabilitation. A cervical collar may be prescribed as well for severe cases.
The Chiropractic Alternative
Because Chiropractic Physicians are uniquely trained in human structure or biomechanics, they are uniquely qualified to address the structural damage that occurs in a whiplash injury. While they may use many of the same diagnostic and treatment tools, the care plan is designed to correct the underlying damage, not merely to mitigate the symptoms.
Relying less on drugs and more on an in-depth knowledge of correct or normal structural health, our chiropractor will use a series of adjustments and exercises or physical rehabilitation to relieve symptoms, restore normal alignment and function, and "retrain" muscles and soft tissue to "hold" the correction long-term. Best of all, MOST of these injuries can be treated naturally without risky surgeries or dangerous drugs by working with your body's innate healing powers.

As defined by The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, "chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health."

Dr. Warren R. Barclay
Welcome to Barclay Chiropractic! My name is Dr. Warren R. Barclay (Dr. B) I am originally from Lowell, Massachusetts and my first experience with Hudson was playing golf at Green Meadow Golf Course at the age fourteen. I guess I was impressed because we moved our family to Hudson in 1986.
I received my professional training at St. Francis Xavier University (Nova Scotia, Canada) and the University of New Hampshire. I have a Masters degree from the University of Maine and received my Doctorate at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
My wife Suzanne is from Sorel, Quebec and we have three children: Dr. Ryan, Allison and Patrick. As an officer in the U.S. Army, I lived and traveled in many states. Having had this opportunity to compare different parts of the country, the beauty of New England’s four seasons brought us home. We did an extensive personal survey to determine where my skills would be most needed. There was no doubt this was the place! Where do we live…a street parallel to Green Meadow Golf Course. Where is our office? Our office (log cabin) sits across from the entrance to Green Meadow Golf Course in Hudson. We are also communicants of St. Kathryn’s Church.
I have extensive sports experience that translates into my love for treating sports related injuries. I continue to compete in golf and curling and enjoy skiing, fishing and kayaking.
At Barclay Chiropractic, you are welcome to experience the remarkable combination of "Traditional Chiropractic and State of the Art Technology."
Dr. Ryan Barclay is a New Englander at heart and chiropractic has been in his blood since the day he was born! Growing up around chiropractic care his whole life, the bug finally bit him. After high school he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps to venture into the best profession out there which is helping people get healthy and pain free naturally.
Although, he was born in Maine and was raised in Hudson, New Hampshire, he was not afraid to share his New England colors with the Midwest! Dr. Ryan Barclay is a 2008 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. While in school he was a member of the Delta Sigma Chi fraternity, an organization dedicated to the promotion of chiropractic.
Since joining his father in practice in 2010, Dr. Ryan has become very involved with the community. He's currently a member of the Nashua Rotary Club as well as the Merrimack Valley Curling Club.

First, remember, nothing is more important than your health, especially when you start to lose it.
Most people have one thing on their mind: their automobile!
They worry: "What about my car?" "What will I drive?" "What will happen to my insurance?" "Who is going to pay for this?"
The last thing on their minds is: "Have I been damaged?"
The damage from spinal nerve stress may take months or even years to surface, not to mention post-traumatic osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis can ruin your posture. Osteoarthritis can cause the discs in your spine to degenerate and create scarring, leading to chronic stiffness and the inability to move properly.
A Chiropractic exam and proper treatment can save an accident victim from much pain and disability later.
Our concern is to give you the care you need, if you need it. If we cannot help you, we will refer you to a doctor who can.
Second, remember, once you settle your case, you lose the right to have your insurance company pay for treatment if you need it.
A good rule of thumb is to be informed of your rights and then make a decision.

*"I have suffered from daily severe low back pain from June, 2010, as a result of an automobile accident. Examinations, x-rays and MRI’s revealed a cervical and lumbar strain, a bulging disc and two protruding discs with one impinging upon a nerve root. As a result of the accident, I underwent several rounds of physical therapy, lumbar epidural steroid injections and facet joint medial branch nerve blocks, all of which were unsuccessful in alleviating my daily chronic low back pain.
I decided to go to Barclay Chiropractic for additional lumbar adjustments in hopes that somehow the protruding disc would retract from the nerve root after undergoing several rounds of adjustments. During my initial appointment, the doctor recommended that I undergo Cold Laser Therapy (CLT). To my astonishment after receiving two laser therapy treatments, I was completely pain free after experiencing daily chronic pain for a year and a half. My physical activity level has significantly increased since receiving CLT. I am forever grateful to Barclay Chiropractic for recommending and providing such an effective and successful therapy treatment!"

*"Barclay Chiropractic has freed me from severe pain in my neck and lower back. They're always very willing to accommodate my crazy schedule and I couldn't imagine what I'd do without them!"

*"Barclay Chiropractic helped throughout my karate tournament season. I got adjusted before the World Championships and I wouldn't be able to compete without that adjustment. The adjustments helped me be relaxed, perform at my best, and win 2 world titles."

*"As an athlete aspiring for Olympic level rowing endeavors, chiropractic care has been an instrumental health care tool for staying aligned and healthy. I came to Dr. B over 12 years ago for a problem with my neck which, with regular adjustments, was solved in just a few visits. I am a firm believer in chiropractic care ever since high school after being injured. A compressed sacroiliac joint was corrected through regular maintenance. Dr. B and his staff are among the best of the best in support of supplemental care including massage, other treatment modalities, and health guidance. Next time you feel like you need a pill to fix something, consider chiropractic care with Dr. Warren Barclay and his team. Well worth a visit."
Michael S. - 40
*"I’ve been coming to Barclay Chiropractic since 1987 and have had great results! I have had no surgeries and have been able to work and travel. I recently started the new cold laser therapy and have had great results as well. I now feel 100% better. The staff is also very caring and always accommodates my schedule the best they can."
Sarsha M. - 63
*"My name is Adam and I’m 34 years old. I have been making an hour commute each way to and from Dr. Barclay’s office faithfully for over nine years. I have taken advantage of all their modern and traditional forms of therapy ranging from the pain relieving adjustments from Dr. B and Dr. Ryan, the Standard Process cleanse, relaxing and stress relieving massages from Kendra to the fantastic and fast acting treatments of the Erchonia cold laser therapy and the ultra sound therapy. The entire staff’s attitude and overall general honesty, sincerity, and care they display to all patients, is one of the major reasons I continue to come to Barclay Chiropractic’s "cabin of relief!" I’m truly grateful for all their help!"
