Have you Been Injured in an Auto Accident? Get the Treatment You Deserve!

Are you suffering from whiplash, back pain, neck pain, headaches, or migraines following an auto accident? Unfortunately, too many auto injuries go undiagnosed or untreated for months or years. This can cause significant problems down the road, often more severe than current symptoms. While your car is the initial focus, pay attention to your body too! You could be suffering from a whiplash injury even if you were moving as little as 5mph!

Come visit us at Innovative Nerve & Joint Centers Chicago to start your healing process and get your body back to optimal health.

Understanding Injuries

In the chaos and uncertainty following an auto accident, understanding the nature and extent of injuries sustained can be a daunting task. However, it is a crucial endeavor that holds the key to recovery and long-term well-being.

As experts in musculoskeletal health, our team possesses a unique understanding of how the human body responds to the forces and trauma of a car accident. We are trained to recognize the signs and symptoms of injuries that may not be immediately apparent, providing a comprehensive evaluation that goes beyond what meets the eye. By conducting a thorough examination and utilizing diagnostic tools, we can identify underlying issues that may present as neck pain, back pain, headaches, or restricted movement.

We understand that the impact of a car crash extends beyond the physical realm and we acknowledge the emotional and psychological toll it can take on individuals. With empathy and compassion, our team strives to provide a supportive environment for each of our patients, offering guidance and reassurance throughout the recovery process.

Chiropractic Biophysics

Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) is a revolutionary approach to chiropractic care, offering a comprehensive understanding of the spine’s structure and its impact on overall health. This approach goes beyond simply alleviating pain or discomfort; it focuses on correcting the underlying issues that contribute to spinal misalignments and postural imbalances. By utilizing cutting-edge technology and evidence-based protocols, CBP aims to restore the spine’s natural curvature, optimizing its function and promoting optimal nervous system health.

Through precise measurements and assessments, CBP enables us to identify deviations from ideal spinal alignment. This meticulous analysis guides the development of personalized treatment plans that address the unique needs of each patient. By combining gentle adjustments, targeted exercises, and specialized traction techniques, CBP aims to reestablish the spine’s proper alignment, reducing stress on the nervous system and facilitating optimal healing.

CBP recognizes the interconnectedness of the spine and the body as a whole. It acknowledges that spinal misalignments can affect not only the musculoskeletal system but also the nervous, respiratory, digestive, and immune systems. By restoring spinal balance after an auto accident, CBP promotes overall health and well-being, enhancing the body’s innate ability to heal and thrive.

Don’t Let Whiplash Keep You From the Pain Free Life You Had Before Your Accident!


At Innovative Nerve & Joint Centers, we offer innovative and natural chiropractic care for whiplash, neck pain, back pain, and headaches suffered from an auto accident.

Ask yourself the most important question: How do I feel? Be on the lookout for emerging neck or back pain. Adrenaline can often cover up symptoms of injury immediately following your accident, so give yourself a day or two to really examine any pain you may be feeling. Some symptoms may include dizziness, stiffness, headaches, neck and back pain, numbness, tingling, and nausea. If you find yourself experiencing any of these symptoms, get evaluated immediately by a medical specialist trained in spine and neck work. Remember, undocumented injuries close the door on any compensation you may receive to pay for your health care expenses.


The highly trained chiropractic staff at Innovative Nerve & Joint Centers has been treating patients injured in auto accidents for over a decade!

We are experienced in the most up-to-date techniques of patient care as well as the documentation required by insurance companies and attorneys.

Therapeutic Exercises

Therapeutic exercises play a vital role in the recovery process following an auto incident. As a crucial component of rehabilitation, these exercises are specifically designed to address the unique needs of individuals who have experienced car crash injuries. Our team of skilled chiropractic professionals believe in the transformative power of therapeutic exercises to restore strength, mobility, and functionality.

After an auto accident, the body may endure various injuries, ranging from whiplash and soft tissue damage to fractures and joint sprains. Therapeutic exercises provide a targeted approach to regain strength, flexibility, and coordination in the affected areas. These exercises are carefully prescribed and customized based on the individual’s specific injuries, limitations, and recovery goals.

Therapeutic exercises empower individuals to take an active role in their own recovery. By committing to a consistent exercise routine, patients can regain strength, restore function, and enhance their overall resilience. The journey to recovery after an auto accident may be challenging, but with therapeutic exercises as a cornerstone of rehabilitation, it becomes an opportunity to rebuild, restore, and reclaim a life of vitality and well-being.

Decompression Therapy

Decompression therapy has emerged as a highly effective treatment option for individuals recovering from auto accidents. At Innovative Nerve & Joint Centers, we specialize in auto accident injuries and we have witnessed firsthand the transformative benefits of decompression therapy in promoting healing and restoring well-being.

Following an auto accident, the spine and surrounding structures may experience compression and misalignment due to the impact forces involved. Decompression therapy provides a non-invasive, gentle approach to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and facilitate the healing process.

By utilizing specialized equipment, such as a decompression table or traction device, decompression therapy applies targeted traction forces to the spine, relieving pressure on the affected discs, nerves, and joints. This controlled stretching and relaxation of the spine not only improves circulation but also promotes the rehydration and nutrient supply to the injured tissues.

Decompression therapy helps to restore the proper spacing between vertebral segments, reducing nerve impingement and enhancing the body’s innate healing capacity. By creating a negative pressure within the discs, it can facilitate the retraction of herniated or bulging discs, relieving associated symptoms such as radiating pain, numbness, or tingling.

Our approach to decompression therapy extends beyond the physical aspect of healing. We understand the impact that auto accidents can have on an individual’s emotional well-being. With compassion and empathy, our team strives to create a supportive environment where patients feel heard, understood, and cared for throughout their recovery journey.

Don’t Miss Years of Your Life Due to an Auto Accident! Get on the Road to Health Through Chiropractic Care and Rehabilitation Solutions!

A whiplash injury is very common in an auto accident. A whiplash injury is the result of rapid acceleration or deceleration. If your head is suddenly jerked forward and swung back beyond natural limits, muscles and ligaments that provide support to the head can be torn, stretched, or sprained. The soft tissue that lives between your spinal discs can tear or rupture causing pain in both the neck and back. Your spine can become misaligned which will reduce your range of motion.


How do I know if I have whiplash? 

There are numerous symptoms of whiplash. First and foremost, you may experience neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, lower back pain, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, vertigo, blurred vision, a ringing in the ears, or a difficulty swallowing. These symptoms usually appear within 24 hours of your accident, so be on the look out!

If you’ve been injured in an accident, or even if you are not sure whether or not your symptoms are related to a recent accident, give us a call and we can set up a time to speak one of our doctors. Sorting out your situation and determining the right course of action may turn out to be one of the most important health decisions of your life.

We have over 10 years of experience assessing and treating injuries associated with automobile accidents.

Hear From Our Happy Patients!

“Dr. Fischer and his staff are amazing!!!! His office is located in the Gold Coast area, so it’s close to everything. The office is clean and everyone is so friendly! I came in with back, neck, and knee pain. Within days of Dr. Fischer treating me, I noticed a difference. I really do feel 10 years younger! I have more mobility in the areas that I stated earlier. I would recommend any and everyone to come see for yourself!!!!”

- Myriam C.

“I’ve been adjusted a number of times by the staff of Innovative Nerve & Joint Centers. I was in a car accident a few years back and was told by another chiropractor at that time that I would never regain full mobility. After a few weeks of treatment, I have now since recovered my full range of motion. The doctors have also done wonders for my migraines, which I’ve always had (related to hormones) and were exacerbated by the crash - I used to get daily migraines and now they rarely occur (once every few months). I can’t sing the praises of the staff enough!”

- Maddie Y.

“I’ve been going to Innovative Nerve & Joint for some time now and love how they continue to evolve their chiropractic practices. Most places seem to do adjustments the same way over time but the staff here continues to learn and improve. Highly recommended.”
