Car Accident Injury

Yorkville Practitioners Delve Deep to Promote Healing After Car Accidents

When automobile accidents occur the first concern should always be the health and welfare of everyone involved in the incident. Far too often, people walk away from their accidents without realizing they’ve sustained an auto accident injury. Here at Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville, our chiropractor has treated countless numbers of people who felt fine at the time of their accidents, and later found themselves having to deal with stiffened muscles and excruciating pain. It is important to note, injuries sustained in automobile accidents don’t necessarily present themselves right away. Conditions like whiplash generally take 24 to 48 hours to appear.

Promote Healing After Car Accidents

An Auto Accident Injury and A Lot More

Whiplash is the most common auto accident injury, and it can spawn a multitude of symptoms with each one creating its own set of problems. Here in our facility we treat people who have been injured in automobile accidents who have injuries which include, but are not limited to: herniated discs, stress fractures, torn ligaments and muscle traumas.

In addition to the types of injuries sustained in automobile accidents, it is important for people to understand and recognize that there are often by-products associated with their injuries. Accidents tend to exasperate whatever issues a person already has, in addition to manifesting symptoms commonly associated with car accidents like: fatigue, dizziness, and diminished range of motion, depression, sleep disturbances and mood swings. Auto accident injuries are devastating to the person who has to deal with the pain, but they can also take a toll on the families, friends and co-workers of the injured.

 

The Right Treatment Is Essential

Because there are so many variables that could impede or even block the healing process following automobile accidents, it is important for people to find a practitioner or a coordinated group of practitioners who can properly assess their injuries as well as other issues. The professionals here at Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville, work as a team to provide the best possible care for each of our patients.

Our team consists of a medical doctor, two chiropractors, a rehabilitation specialist, a physical therapist, a certified athletic trainer, two rehabilitation technicians and a front office team.

Our Team Is Ready To Assist You

Auto accident injuries should be evaluated as soon as their symptoms appear. Many of the injuries sustained in auto accidents are related to misalignments of the spine and will not correct themselves. Our chiropractor here at Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville, uses spinal adjustments and spinal decompression to realign the spinal column as well as other treatment modalities.
