When you have been involved in an auto accident it is crucial that you are examined as soon as possible. The force in even minor fender-benders can be over 40,000 pounds, which is enough force to tear a telephone pole in half! Typical symptoms following auto accidents include:

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness
  • Back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Bruising

Even if you think that you weren’t injured it is important to be examined for soft tissue injuries which are often overlooked – even in the emergency room. At our office, you will receive a full spinal, neurological, and orthopedic evaluation (including x-rays if necessary) to ensure that you receive the correct diagnosis. Dr. Sanders has extensive training in treating auto accident injuries, and his treatment recommendations are always individualized to meet your specific needs.


Even when the impact in a car accident is minor, damage can be sustained by the tissues of the body. This often leads to long term pain in the bones and joints. Muscle spasms and displaced vertebrae are just a few examples of the painful aftermaths of a car crash, and if the appropriate solution is not found in time, these problems may become worse and trigger other issues.

At emergency rooms or traditional clinics, other doctors may just prescribe medication which will only temporarily alleviate pain. Through chiropractic, you can get to the source of the problems caused by auto accidents instead of just masking the real issues. At Sanders Chiropractic and Wellness, our staff has been trained to successfully treat the pain and injuries that occur in auto accidents through various therapies and spinal adjustments without the use of drugs or surgery.


The forces involved in an auto accident are often severe  and may cause ligament damage and muscle spasms. Ligaments are like the glue that hold our joints together. When they are damaged, the joints of the spine may  misalign which can irritate the nerves and cause pain. Dr. Sanders has been trained to locate these injuries and correct them without the use of drugs or surgery. He relies on all-natural pain management techniques, thus allowing you to heal without additional problems by eliminating the possibility of surgical complications and medicinal side-effects.
