Auto Accident Injury Treatment in Phoenix
Diagnosing & Treating Whiplash Injuries
Following a car accident there are many things that you may be dealing with. Common problems after a car accident include whiplash, back pain, emotional distress and headaches. It can take people days to show symptoms after an auto accident. Even people who begin to show symptoms may not recognize the symptoms as a larger injury.
As a result, many people who experience auto injuries fail to seek medical treatment when the car accident first occurs. This delayed response can lead to prolonged pain and suffering. The sooner you seek treatment after a car accident with a chiropractor, the better. Whiplash is a common condition that affects 2 million Americans each year and is often associated with auto accidents. Often patients who experience whiplash are people who have been in car accidents and even very minor car accidents can cause symptoms of whiplash.

Whiplash: What It Is & What It Does
Whiplash is caused by the sudden jerky movement that occurs when the car impacts a large stationary object. When this happens, the joints in the body stretch in ways that are painful and detrimental. Through your visits Dr. Stetzel, DC will work to identify the auto injuries you may have sustained that are affecting your health and help provide natural ways to provide pain relief.
Common symptoms of an injury sustained as the result of a car accident include:
- Neck stiffness, whiplash
- Lower back pain
- Difficulty sleeping
- pain or numbness in the arm or hand
- Shoulder and/or neck pain
- Emotional distress and anxiety
The gentle, non-invasive chiropractic techniques used at Breathe Chiropractic can help alleviate these common symptoms. Often times patients are suffering from a combination of causes which is why a consultation and in-office exam is important to help gather the entire impact this frightening event may have caused.

Our treatment methods can incorporate a range of treatment options. The one we use at Breathe Chiropractic as our primary foundation for care is spinal adjustment. Your individualized treatment plan may use a combination of alternative methods such as exercises, ice, or additional ones Dr. Stetzel feels would be helpful based on your situation.
Our unique pain-relieving spinal adjustments are used to realign the bones in the spine and restore balance to the muscles, ligaments, and tissues of the body. This is the primary way we treat your injuries and help you get back to optional functioning and mobility.
