Car Accidents Often Result in Back, Neck Pain

Surgery team in the operating room .A car accident has the potential to cause a variety of injuries, with those associated with the back and neck extremely common.

Recently, we consulted with a patient who was injured in a near-fatal car accident on a local highway.

After several months of dealing with daily pain and discomfort, he visited us and we ordered various tests. An MRI gave our team everything we needed to diagnose his condition, discuss a variety of treatment options, and lay out a plan for making a full recovery.

Surgery was required to fix the issue, but we worked closely with the patient to put his mind at ease. Our PA David was responsible for all his post-operative visits, to which the patient said:

“His PA David did all my post-operative visits to maintain positive outcomes and Dr. Sharma was there for me day and night through my recovery.”

If you injure your back or neck in a motor vehicle accident, it’s critical to receive immediate medical care. The sooner you receive treatment, the sooner you’ll understand your injuries and the steps you can take to make a full recovery.
