Welcome to Gentle Care Chiropractic
Every year, winter brings with it many joys, from the gathering of family and friends sharing special times, to trips to Mt. Hood to see our very own winter wonderland. With these opportunities comes danger; in particular, driving on wet, or worse, frozen road surfaces. As chiropractors here in West Linn, every winter we see a sharp increase in the number of auto accidents resulting in injury. We have had an incredible long, sunny summer, but bad habits for winter driving can set in. Following distances need to increase, while visibility will often be decreased. Glare from wet surfaces at night and increased traffic can be frustrating. Reaction times are even more critical, so distractions become more dangerous. These and many more factors are responsible for the increase in auto accidents we see throughout winter. When we do see a patient who is seeking help for auto injuries, we are grateful that they have put their trust in us, because we know we can help in a way that is safe, effective, and respects the way in which the body thrives and heals. Gentle Care Chiropractic wishes you and yours a safe and joy-filled winter.
