YORKVILLE, Ill., Nov. 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Brian D. Berkey of Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville is an auto accident injury chiropractor. Each year, more than 3.8 million individuals are involved in non-fatal auto-related accidents. While the immediate effects of an auto accident may seem minimal, if untreated, these accidents can lead to chronic pain. Whiplash, back pain, herniated discs and spinal damage are common injuries after an auto accident. Immediate chiropractic care after an accident can realign the spine and prevent long-term complications as a result of an auto accident.
Dr. Brian D. Berkey is the clinic director of Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville. Dr. Berkey studied at Wright State University and later graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology from the National College of Chiropractic. Following his passion for chiropractic, he completed the five academic year Doctor of Chiropractic program, graduating with honors while completing an internship at the National University Health Center-Woodridge Chiropractic clinic. Since graduation, his clinical interests have focused on herniated disc treatment, treating work and auto crash injuries, neurology and weight loss.
According to Dr. Berkey, immediate treatment of auto accident injuries is key to a quick and early recovery. "Sometimes people walk away from an accident and they think they feel fine. They might be a little sore, but they believe it will go away with a little rest. In reality, even a minor fender-bender exerts incredible force on the human body. Some problems don't become apparent for weeks or months after the accident. If left untreated, a patient may experience life-long repercussions needlessly."
Dr. Berkey advises patients to visit Advanced Medicine of Yorkville immediately following an accident for an immediate evaluation. Dr. Berkey treats whiplash and back pain related to the accident by combining chiropractic adjustments and massage to encourage the release of tension and help patients move better and faster.
Advanced Medicine of Yorkville also employs a licensed physical therapist, Jessica Jaquez, MSPT, who provides further support for patient recovery by offering stretching, strengthening, and core stabilization exercises to suffering patients. Dr. Farah Malik, medical doctor, also aides in patient recovery through short-term pain medication as necessary.
"The rule of thumb following a car accident is that seeking chiropractic care sooner than later is best," says Dr. Berkey, "however, if you were involved in an accident at some point in your life and didn't seek immediate care, seek treatment now. We can still help manage and relieve your pain by combining a number of tools including corrective or strengthening exercises, regular adjustments and massage."
