Auto Accident Injuries
Auto accidents hurt. If you are feeling ANY neck pain, back pain, or headaches following a car accident, then you’ve been injured! You need proper treatment. While a visit to the ER may result in a diagnosis of “whiplash” and some prescriptions for medications to control your most obvious symptoms, these medicines do little to enhance healing or promote rehabilitation of the injured regions. Is this enough?
If a running back tears the ligaments and muscles of his knee during a football game, does he just go to the ER after the game for some medication then trot back onto the field the next week? Of course not. The team’s trainers know that if he is to ever return to the game, he must carefully follow a thorough treatment and rehabilitation program that may take weeks, months, or even over a year! Well, shouldn’t we give the same consideration to treatment when the ligaments and muscles of the spine are injured in a motor vehicle crash?
