Have you or someone you know been involved in a motor vehicle collision? Even with today’s advanced protective technologies and safety equipment, the jarring effects of Douglasville auto accidents can cause long-term structural issues.

Without sounding alarmist, it is important for my patients to understand that care should be sought immediately after an automobile accident because allowing structural issues to go undiscovered induce long-term pain and a serious decrease in your quality of life.

It can take time for major symptoms to show up, which is why it is essential to stop by and let us take a look following an accident. Most often, early care and quality treatment is the quickest path to full healing and recovery. Our gentle and no-nonsense treatments are the perfect step toward restoring your body.
Any part of the body that is swiftly jarred or thrown forward beyond normal ranges can easily sustain stretched ligaments and tears. The muscles supporting the head and neck are especially vulnerable to this destructive tearing during a collision. We specialize in the care of bones, muscles, nerves and connective tissue, and should be one of your first stops after an accident. The major systems of the body impacted by Douglasville auto accidents are important to keep in healthy and structurally sound so they can function properly and operate seamlessly.
