Car Accidents / No-Fault Injuries

We treat a lot of patients that have injuries from car accidents, and have been doing so for over 18 years. Car accidents can cause many different types of injuries such as:

  • Muscle sprain/strains
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Lower back injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Generalized pain
  • Headaches

While there are many types of injuries that can occur in a car accident, lets talk about whiplash injuries for a minute, as they need to be taken very seriously. Because symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or months to manifest, it is easy to be fooled into thinking that you are not as injured as you really are.

Too often people don’t seek treatment following a car accident because they don’t feel hurt. By far, the most common injury to the neck is a whiplash injury. Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head, either backward, forward, or sideways, that results in the damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back.

Unfortunately, by the time more serious complications develop, some of the damage from the injury may have become permanent. Numerous studies have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, roughly half of them state that they still suffer with symptoms from their injuries. If you have been in a motor vehicle or any other kind of accident, don’t assume that you escaped injury if you are not currently in pain. Contact us today!
