Have you or your loved one been involved in an auto injury?

Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA) cause much more than just a sore neck and headaches.  Research has shown that even a low speed collision of 6.8 miles per hour (MPH) can cause serious damage to your cervical spine. Damage that may not be immediately apparent and difficult to diagnose. Because some of the injuries may not show up for days, weeks, or even years after the accident it is extremely important that you are seen by a provider that is able to diagnose and treat these injuries effectively. These injuries can even occur when there is very little damage to your vehicle. Treating patients involved in motor vehicle accidents is completely different than typical aches and pains. The physical forces applied to the spine during a motor vehicle accident can cause unseen and very difficult to diagnose injuries. These injuries include:

Damage to the Posterior Longitudinal Ligament (PLL)
Damage to the Supraspinous Ligament (SSL)
Damage to the Anterior Longitudinal Ligament (ALL)
Damage to Cervical Facet Joints
Damage to the Cervical Disc
Damage to the Dorsal Nerve Rami

Frequently Asked Questions

A: No, most walk in clinics are prohibited from treating patients recently involved in an auto accident. Often xrays are required or needed to assess the full extent of the injury. Our facilitate is equipped with state of the art digital xrays that can be viewed instantly allowing us to see exactly what needs to be treated and how severe the damage could be.

A: Absolutely. Research has shown signifcant damage can be caused at speeds as low as 8 mph.

A: 100% Yes, the ER’s job is to assess for life threatening injuries such as fractures to the spine, bleeding in the brain, and internal injuries. The ER is not equipped nor do they perform adequate testing to assess for ligamentous injuries and damage to the spine that won’t show up till days or weeks later. Just because you were released from the ER doesn’t mean you are ok.
