Midtown Atlanta car accident treatment

See A Chiropractor After Your Accident in Midtown Atlanta

A chiropractor can treat most injuries that don't need immediate medical attention.

Chiropractors handle issues with the spine and musculoskeletal system.

They can also help with inflammation in the spine.

Inflammation is your body’s natural response to an injury or infection.

Inflammation can be difficult to manage, but chiropractic care will help reduce the heat or swelling in your neck and back.

Your chiropractor can also help prevent scarring after your crash.

Chiropractic manipulations are great at breaking up the scar tissue so that it heals effectively.

The most common reason to visit a chiropractor after an accident is to relieve pain.

Suffering an injury in a car accident can cause untold damage to the neck, back, and spine.

A chiropractor will be able to get to the root of the problem and alleviate your pain simultaneously.

Chiropractors also work closely with personal injury attorneys so you can get the legal representation you need to build a strong accident claim.

If your accident was caused by someone else, you are entitled to compensation for your damages, like property damage, and medical treatment.

These damages will be paid for by the at-fault party’s insurance company.

Dr. James Toney

Dr. Toney is Arrowhead Clinic’s Midtown Atlanta Chiropractor who specializes in helping accident victims and patients who suffer from chronic pain conditions, such as chronic back and neck pain. Dr. Toney didn't grow up wanting to become a chiropractor. After a financial hardship hit his family before starting his freshman year of college, Dr. Toney turned to exercise as an outlet. He would run three to five miles three to four times a week to cleanse his mind and body of all the afflictions he was experiencing. When he found out his college tuition fees included the benefit of the Recreational Activity Center, he decided to put the opportunity to good use. The rest is history. Dr. Toney soon discovered his love for weightlifting and started to see results immediately. Gaining 20 lbs of muscle the first three months of lifting fueled his development into becoming a bodybuilder. Through bodybuilding, Dr. Toney was able to improve his appearance while maintaining a healthy lifestyle. After 18 months of bodybuilding, Dr. Toney suffered every athlete's worst nightmare, an injury. This wasn't just any injury, but a back injury, due to improper form on a cable machine workout. At the time, Dr. Toney had no health insurance and couldn't afford to see a medical doctor. He did some research and stumbled upon chiropractic treatment. During his first exam, Dr. Toney was given an X-ray and an adjustment. He was back in the gym in less than a week. That's when he discovered his newly found love for Chiropractic. Dr. Toney graduated from Georgia Southern University with a BA in Biology and minors in Chemistry and Business Management. He then finished up his education at Life University, where he received a Masters in Exercise Science/Sports Chiropractic with an emphasis in Sports Injury, and a Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine. One of Dr. Toney’s accident patients recently left a review stating, “I was involved in an accident and was referred to Arrowhead Clinic by a friend. Upon walking in the clinic, I was greeted with a smile and superior professionalism. Dr. Toney was thorough, making my recovery extremely successful. If you are looking for a chiropractic clinic, call to schedule your appointment.” Dr. Toney provides all potential patients with a free, same-day consultation. He takes the time to listen, discuss, diagnose, and treat a person’s injury or condition all during the same appointment. Dr. Toney is available for appointments Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. "You never know where life is going to take you, so enjoy the journey." -Dr. James E.
