Chiropractic for Car Accidents

Car accidents are scary and can cause so many problems in the hours, weeks and even years after the accident happens. Untreated whiplash and soft tissue damage should not be taken lightly. It sometimes happens that we brush off a car accident, especially if it is small and you are not feeling physical symptoms right away or assuming the injuries will get better on their own. However, at Sapphire Chiropractic, we urge you to get treatment as soon as possible. The sooner you receive a thorough assessment and chiropractic adjustment, the less chance the injury will have to set in throughout your body. One of the most common injuries from automobile accidents is whiplash.

“My experience at Florence Carlton Chiropractic was a refreshing one. Dr. Marston actually took a lot of time with me to get to the heart of my physical issues. He did not try to rush me out the door like every other office I have been to. His care was thorough and brought much needed relief. The office is a very warm and welcoming environment.”

“I was having back pain. I also have arthritis in my right foot really bad because I have broken the foot about 3 times. Anyways, my mom was seeing Dr. Marston and she told me to start going to him. So I did and ever since then, my pain in my back is gone, my foot pain has gone down by at least 75% and he is also helping me with my weight. He is just a really cool Doctor.

“I was rather apprehensive about seeing a chiropractor for the first time. However, Dr. Marston took the time to completely put me at ease and asked specific questions about my neck and back problems. Every adjustment I have received has left me feeling better than I felt before. You’ll be pleased with the quality and level of care you’ll receive from Dr. Marston. I know I am.”

Kristie

“I am a patient of Dr. Marston. In years past I was always a little afraid of being handled and adjusted. Dr. Marston was patient and used the activator on me and I loved it. As time went on, his gentle and terrific bedside manner enabled me to now let him adjust my neck by his hands. He is a great Doctor and I could see anyone going to him. Children included.”

Vickie

“I threw my back out and was in incredible pain. Dr Marston was amazing with his patience and kindness and understanding. He worked with my muscles and got my back and hips back where they should be. I continued daily care and within a week it was as if it never happened. Dr. Marston is very knowledgeable and kind. I will highly recommend him to anyone!!

“I was literally a train wreck of pain and miss-alignment on my first visit and was incredibly relieved & realigned after just a few sessions! I have seen chiropractors on & off for 25+ years and know that he is seriously the “REAL DEAL” of holistic health care! I refuse to see another chiropractor and drive from Hamilton every week to Florence (Initially 2X’s per week) Passing up 10 other practices in route. He is intuitive and really listens; he is willing to treat everything that is sore in one visit. He cares and truly wants to help you. Thank God for him!”

“Dr. Marston is the best chiropractor I have ever gone to and I’ve been seeing chiropractors for over 30 years. I was going to a young chiropractor in Missoula. Right away he messed my hips up and left me in severe pain. He tried for six months to put my hips back in the right position for my body (I had one short leg) but he couldn’t get my hips adjusted right. I then came to Dr. Marston and he fixed my hips in one visit. He is professional and someone that I admire very much. Thank you Dr. Marston for making my quality of life so much better for myself and my husband.”

Diana D 9/7/15

“Dr. Marston has helped my family so much. He has helped with backs, whip-lash from an accident, to relieving pain in knees and ankles. He is my family’s first call when my family has an ache or pain or just to maintain our health.”

Lora A 7/7/15

“I have had constant back pain for 20+ years. Have had many chiropractic adjustments for some relief. Always have taken Motrin for pain relief daily. After a month of twice weekly treatments with Dr. Marston, I’m standing straighter, have more flexibility, less pain and off the Motrin. Feels great to feel good again!

John P 6/9/17

“When I cam to Dr. Marston, I could not raise my left arm. I had already used Physical Therapy for 12 weeks to no avail. After just a few weeks of chiropractic care, he had found the problem and fixed it. The ultrasound was wonderful and healed the area fast.”

Victoria W 2/1/16

“As someone with scoliosis and ongoing structural issues. I have been to a lot of chiropractors over the past 30 years. Dr. Marston is the only one who has taken the time to truly learn what works best for my particular challenges and has adjusted his approach to address my changing structural needs. I know that no matter what symptoms I present with, new or familiar, he will take the time and attention to detail to make sure I walk out of the office feeling better. It’s invaluable to me to have a chiropractor in whom I can place so much confidence and trust.

Heather M

“My first visit to Doctor Marston was to try to get help with my pain [in] the back and hip area. With X-rays and follow-up, the doctor came up with a treatment plan. After a couple of visits I could already notice some big changes and pain relief. I think he can help get me healed and pain free.”

Pam C 8/7/15

“I first came to Dr. Marston in so much pain I couldn’t even stand up straight. We found out what the problem was together and he explained everything, each step of the way. I felt confident going into treatment and started looking forward to my appointments. Now 3 months later, I am virtually pain free. Dr. Marston has not only helped my initial pain, but has also helped in other areas I didn’t even know needed help! Thank you, Dr. Marston, for EVERYTHING!”

Chiropractic Can SIGNIFICANTLY Help A Whiplash Injury

The impact of a car crash can cause your head to jerk beyond its normal range, and can damage muscles, nerves, and ligaments. The damage caused by this movement, if left untreated, can slowly worsen for weeks, months or years. Failing to get treatment can cause serious consequences down the road. Treating injuries received from a car accident (including minor fender benders) requires adjustments, and performing an assigned set of exercises geared towards stabilizing the muscles and ligaments that support the spine. Neck, head and spinal adjustments promote healing in the body by allowing you to naturally come back into alignment after your bones and muscles have just gone through a very traumatic experience. We help get your whole body out of panic and help you on the road to recovery.

More Serious Injury?

There are multiple different areas of the body that can be impacted in a car accident. Chiropractic care can help assist in not only whiplash but all sorts of back injuries, extremity pain, resetting of dislocation of ribs and joints and just getting your body out of systemic and radiating pain. Your back and spine will bear the brunt of most of the force of these cars running together at high speeds. Spondyloslisithesis occurs when vertebra shift out of place due to a stress fracture in a bone. Disc herniation is also commonly seen in automobile accidents. We want you to get the answers and we have the path to get you there.
