We see many folks with neck pain after a car crash in our St. Petersburg, FL chiropractic practice. Because of the nature of car crashes, neck injury is very common and it's a problem that Dr. Kristin Eloshway-Kidgell is trained to treat.
In a crash, your body is exposed to forces more severe than what a fighter pilot experiences, so it's no wonder injury can occur. In fact, the first head restraints were designed for jet fighter planes to prevent this exact type of injury!
Neck pain can become chronic after a crash if not treated promptly. We recommend that patients come into our St. Petersburg, FL practice immediately after an injury. While you may experience extreme tenderness and swelling, Dr. Kristin Eloshway-Kidgell can still gently work to mobilize the tissues of your neck to prevent scar tissue from forming.
If you've been in a collision, it's important to make sure that you get the care you need to treat your auto injury pain. Call our St. Petersburg, FL practice today at (727) 637-2957 to make an appointment today.
