CAR ACCIDENT INJURY HELP IN SEATTLE, WA.
Despite our best efforts, car crashes happen all too regularly, especially with our wet Seattle streets! Car wrecks cause all kinds of injuries, even in low speed, low damage accidents. As adrenaline begins to wear off, you are likely to notice pain develop in the hours and days following a car crash. Sometimes pain is present immediately.

Neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, headaches, mental fog and fatigue
Are all commonly reported after car accidents. Sudden, unexpected impact causes your neck to momentarily form an unnatural “S” curve before it flies back into the headrest (hopefully it’s positioned properly!) and then “whips” forward, ripping and tearing soft tissue all along the way. The spinal discs, joint capsules, muscles, tendons and ligaments that hold your spine together are overwhelmed by this sudden stress and tears. The collection of symptoms caused by this damaged tissue is known as “whiplash”. Additionally, your brain bounces around in your skull causing bruising and shearing blood vessels that can result in concussion, or an even worse traumatic brain injury.
CAR ACCIDENT INJURY CARE FOR THE AFTREMATH
Unfortunately, traditional medical care has not been particularly successful treating these types of injuries. While pain medications sometimes help mask symptoms temporarily, they have negative side effects and can cause powerful addiction after just a couple weeks. The old recommendation of cervical collars and bed-rest allows scar tissue to settle in. Scar tissue decreases spinal mobility and function laying the foundation for chronic neck and back pain. Unfortunately, 50% of people with pain after a car crash will continue to report moderate to severe pain 10 or more years after the accident.
What They Say About Us
Dr Penner is amazing, as is the front desk. Dr Penner knows exactly what to do, is very good at manipulations, and never seems to be in a hurry. He also tells you when you dont need to visit anymore, rather than keeping you on a regular visit cycle. He fixed my back in about 5 visits. The front desk works very hard to get you an appt ASAP, and has seen me same-day many times. Highly recommended.
Dr. Penner was great. I had some serious neck and back pain. Couldn’t sleep for days. Finally decided to go to see Dr. Penner, (first time seeing a chiropractor) and I walked out of there feeling like a million bucks. No, scratch that, 2 million. Dr. Penner is also just a genuinely nice guy.
Even though I've moved aways, I continue to go to Dr. Penner as needed for 5 years. He listens carefully and addresses my issues, including giving me recommendations for home stretches. I highly recommend seeing him for chiropractic needs.
When I saw Dr. Penner he had a lot to live up to. I’ve tried to change to more conveniently located chiros four times and never found one whose treatments stuck for more than two or three days, resulting in repeated expensive visits, lost time with work/family and consistent nagging discomfort.
Dr. Penner’s office is very professional, he treated me with respect, his staff and other professionals are pleasant and easy to work with. After he adjusted me I felt much better, and now, three weeks later I still feel really good, remarkably so. I think I feel so much better because he taught me a new stretch that really works, something I haven’t come across myself despite many years of physical therapy, stretching, twisting, strength improvement and yoga-ing. I will definitely be back to see Dr. Penner and would recommend to anyone at least one visit to see if you have the same results that I did.
