Over 2 million people are hurt every year in car accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries fairly easily, many are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our St. Petersburg, FL office. Fortunately, Dr. Kristin Eloshway-Kidgell is here to help you heal from your auto injury.

The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was conducted on 28 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic care and 93 percent of them experienced improvements following their adjustments, even though 43 percent of whiplash sufferers overall usually never find relief. This confirms that chiropractic is a great way to avoid chronic pain after an auto injury.

It's important to remember that research has also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Kristin Eloshway-Kidgell as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.

Dr. Kristin Eloshway-Kidgell has helped many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our St. Petersburg, FL office today for more information or an appointment.
