Car Accidents

PAIN. HEADACHES. MUSCLE SORENESS.

Your doctor says you're fine, but you feel anything but fine.

You're ready to get back to normalcy... playing with the kids, working out,

being able to spend the whole day at work, but this pain & discomfort is limiting what you can do each day.

That is where Dr. Bruner steps in to help you heal optimally.

Car Accident & Whiplash Recovery:

In such a short amount of time the body can go through a significant amount of physical stress. The car accident or whiplash incident may be over quickly, but without proper treatment the injuries can last for years. It is crucial to look at ligaments, bones, and muscle changes after an accident.

Imaging and additional testing will objectively analyze what your body went through during the accident and the changes that may have occurred. Dr. Bruner will complete a thorough chiropractic exam and a neurological workup to better understand what you are seeing and experiencing. Together we can create a pathway to healing.
