Auto Accident Injuries
Injuries caused by auto accidents must be taken care of as soon as possible. Research shows that even a 5 MPH car accident can cause microfractures in the spine. Auto accidents affect the spine in many different ways including whiplash injuries to the neck and low back, which can lead to headaches, neck or low back pain, and even nerve-related issues in the arms and legs.
Sometimes these symptoms aren’t felt for 7 to 10 years following a car accident. By then, the damage has already set in and can cause longterm effects that could have been prevented with care following the accident.
Our office treats many patients as a result of trauma due to car accidents. Many times the at-fault insurance company or Med Pay on your auto insurance policy can be used for treatment with no out-of-pocket expense to you.
