Here at American Health & Wellness Center, we specialize in helping you get back to feeling like yourself after an auto accident. We know that it can be a scary time and we make it our goal to ensure that you feel great as quickly as possible.
An auto accident can cause many different issues. Often an accident can throw your neck, your spine, or even your entire body out of alignment. Our trained professionals are able to work with you to find the exact cause of each of your issues and help you through exercises as well as regular chiropractic care so that you begin to feel like yourself again.
One of the main injuries that can occur in an auto accident is whiplash. Whiplash is a sudden movement of the head being pushed quickly backward and then forward. It can even happen side to side. Whiplash destabilizes your spine and can even cause pain in other areas. You may notice shoulder pain, blurred vision, neck pain, increased headaches, dizziness, arm pain, and much more.
Chiropractic care is important after an auto accident because if the effects go untreated, they can become a long-term problem that will continue to affect you for many years to come. In an auto accident, you may not feel the side effects right away. In fact, it may take weeks or even months to notice the full effect of the accident.
Even if you had a minor auto accident, you will want to see Dr. Petrie to ensure that everything is still aligned. If you are feeling any pain, we will work with you to take the necessary steps to help you feel better.
