Auto accident and personal injury chiropractic treatments should address the patient’s injuries and restore as much normal function as possible. By treating the source, pain is decreased, and proper function is re-established.
We provide safe chiropractic care to patients who have been involved in car accidents or other kinds of personal injury accidents in Gilbert, Arizona, and surrounding areas like Queen Creek, Chandler, Mesa, Val Vista Lakes, Chandler Heights, and Power Ranch.
If you’re looking for natural, holistic remedies for your discomfort, let us be of service. We work with insurance, and often there is little or no out-of-pocket expense to the patient.
For those involved in an accident, the effects can be devastating. Pain and discomfort are often only one outcome. In many cases, the patient also has property loss, financial burdens, emotional stress, loss of work, and more.
Our team can help reduce your mounting stress by improving your comfort so you can focus on other matters.
We’ve successfully helped many kinds of patients, including:
- Slip and fall
- Motorcycle accident
- Auto accident
- And more
Depending on the severity and nature of your accident, patients may experience many different injuries.
Some of the most common injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Herniated discs
- A strained ligament or muscle
- Nerve irritation
- And more
These injuries may be acute, or they may continue to cause the patient problems long after the accident, turning into chronic pain.
Fortunately, many of these injuries will respond to the right chiropractic treatment.
Whiplash after an auto accident is the most common personal injury we encounter at our Gilbert chiropractic clinic. Our solutions will greatly help alleviate your pain and restore mobility; however, avoidance is always best.
If possible, take these steps to deter whiplash when rear-ended:
- Ensure your headrest is always adjusted correctly to suit your needs
- Push your head and neck against your headrest or the back of your seat
- Slightly bend your neck so you can look at the top of the windshield while staring straight ahead
- Do not turn your head to the sides or look in the rearview mirror
- Position your shoulders up toward your ears in a shrug
- With each hand gripped tightly on the steering wheel, straighten your arms out
- If not at a full stop, brake as hard as possible
These measures will help protect your neck from the violent thrust forward and back, bracing your body for impact.
No one is more qualified to treat non-surgical accident injuries than a licensed chiropractor.

On the first visit after an accident, our chiropractors will examine the patient thoroughly to identify all injuries requiring treatment.
Once serious injuries have been properly addressed, we’ll create a comprehensive treatment plan designed to treat all of your injuries over time. Our team has extensive training in diagnosing and treating neuromusculoskeletal injuries, and we put this training to use when working with auto accident and personal injury victims.
In most cases, a patient's treatment program will combine more than one type of therapy, including:
- Chiropractic adjustment or spinal manipulation
- Manual soft tissue mobilization
- Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
- Kinesiology taping
- Dry needling
- Massage therapy
- Corrective exercises and stretch therapy
- Trigger point therapy
- And others
When a new patient visits our clinic, we get all the details concerning medical history, accident information, symptoms and pain points, and overall goals. Working within your abilities and needs, we’ll determine your optimum plan.
We monitor each patient's progress throughout treatment, and changes to the program may be made depending on the response. Most patients will also receive take-home guidance to complement in-clinic treatments; these serve to elevate the healing process and strengthen the body.
After a patient has been involved in an accident, prompt treatment is essential.
The sooner the patient visits a chiropractor; the sooner recovery will begin. In addition, seeking treatment quickly may prevent further damage to vulnerable joints and soft tissues.
Take Control of Your Health & Life!
Patients can experience safe, quick relief from their symptoms after undergoing chiropractic care. Depending on the severity of your injury, you may need ongoing therapy to manage your pain; however, our goal is to get you out of the clinic as soon as possible.

Our solutions nurture responsible healthcare and increase the body’s function as a whole. With a deep understanding of how the musculoskeletal system works, you can trust us to find what’s causing your pain so we can help you get healthy, strong, and active- the way you’re meant to be.
