Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville Recommends Patients Need to Visit a Chiropractor After Car Accident

YORKVILLE, Ill., March 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- While some people may not experience any symptoms after a car accident or their symptoms appear to be minor, it is vital that people involved in a car crash visit a wellness professional after the event. Consulting with a chiropractor immediately after an accident helps the doctor identify possible spinal injuries, prevent long-term health complications, as well as realign the spine. Dr. Brian D. Berkey of Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville is an experienced auto accident injury chiropractor. In addition to diagnosing and treating injuries sustained from a car crash, he also helps guide patients through the post-accident injury process.

Though many people may not experience any pain or symptoms immediately after an auto accident, this does not mean that they have not been injured. Some victims do not begin to show signs of health issues until weeks or months after they have been involved in an accident. Often high adrenaline levels can lessen the effects of the injuries, which will begin to appear after the shock has worn off and the body has had time to adjust.

A chiropractic physician who has been properly trained in auto crash injury diagnosis and management can help with the injury recovery process. With post-graduate training in auto crash reconstruction, auto crash trauma, diagnosis, and treatment, and concussion management, Dr. Berkey, the clinical director of Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville, has experience assessing and treating auto crash injuries.

According to Dr. Berkey, the window of time immediately after an auto accident is an important time to consult with a chiropractor. “Diagnosing and treating auto accident injuries quickly is the key to a successful recovery, especially those who may have injured their spine. Getting an immediate evaluation from a chiropractor is important to maintaining spine health and preventing any long-term issues that may affect your quality of life,” says Dr. Berkey.

Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville offers comprehensive care for those who have been involved in auto crashes. Not only is Dr. Berkey experienced with treating patients who have been in car accidents, but the center also has a medical doctor on site to assist with short-term pain management through medication and muscle relaxers. Those who may need rehabilitation will also benefit from working with a physical therapist at the wellness center.
