Car Accidents Often Result in Back, Neck Injuries

A car accident has the potential to cause a variety of injuries, with those to your back and neck among the most common. Even if you don’t experience immediate pain and related symptoms, there’s still a possibility you’ve injured this part of your body.

We recently consulted with a patient who suffered a serious neck injury in a car accident. Despite many months of pain and more than 10 MRIs, he was still in the same position.

Upon sending him for updated imaging tests, we were able to uncover the cause of the pain, create a surgical and recovery plan, and schedule his procedure for the near future. Several weeks after the surgery he noted that it was the best he had felt since before his accident.

Sometimes, it takes a second opinion in order to understand exactly what you’re up against. If you’re not getting the answers you need to live a pain free life, it’s time to seek additional assistance. That may be all you need in order to get your health back on track and reclaim the life you love.
