Auto Accident Injuries

According to the Department of Motor Vehicles, approximately 10.8 million car accidents occur each year. Getting into a car accident can be physically and mentally stressful for the body.  An accident does not only affect your neck and lower back, it also results in whiplash, headaches, shoulder, jaw pain and post concussion symptoms. It’s very important to understand how your body can be affected after a motor vehicle accident and the steps you can take to make sure you can be as healthy as you can be after the accident.

One of the most common symptoms associated with whiplash is neck pain.

The forceful impact of a car accident can cause tearing or stretching of the soft tissues of your neck and upper back, which hold the spine together. This form of ‘shear’ force can cause an unnatural movement of the spine and may result in damage to the ligaments in the neck. Recent studies from the American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation have also shown that force resulting from motor vehicle accidents is also applied significantly to the lumbar (lower back) region. It is also common for health care practitioners to see reports of whiplash patients experiencing TMJ pain.

Dr. Fisher has years of experience assessing, examining, diagnosing and treating patients who have experienced either a recent auto injury or has struggled throughout the years from an old auto accident injury that continues to plague them.  Onsite x-rays at his clinic allows him the opportunity to see within minutes the damage caused by an auto injury to the musculoskeletal system.  This is comforting for patients to see the necessity for chiropractic care prior to treatment on the same day.
