Have you just been injured in an auto accident? Have you been injured while at work?

Whether you are looking for relief from a concussion, whiplash, headaches or bodily pain caused by either auto accidents or a personal injury, we can help.

The combination of chiropractic care and massage therapy are an outstanding choice of treatment for soft tissue and spine related injuries. The most common ailments found in auto accidents and personal injury cases tend to be sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments, which makes our treatment the primary choice. We will work with your insurance company to ensure that you get the care that you need.

What o do right after an auto accident:

  • Safety First! If the accident is minor and you are able to, move the automobile to a safe place. Make sure to turn off your engine and place hazard cones if need be.
  • Check yourself and others for injuries and call an ambulance if required.
