The Difference is, We Truly Care
Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA)
Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA) can result in a variety of injuries and symptoms, and even a minor MVA can have major effects on your health. Many symptoms may take weeks or months to manifest. It is easy to be fooled into thinking that you are not as injured as you really are. The sooner treatment is started in relation to the accident the quicker the recovery.
The Most Common Injury from MVA’s is Whiplash
The culprit of your pain from whiplash is injury to the ligaments, soft tissue, and discs of the neck/spine from the body’s reaction to a deceleration or acceleration force.
how we treat
After a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA), your body goes into “protection mode” and your joints and muscles get stiff. It’s vital to relax your body back to normal as quickly as possible to prevent long-term pain. The injury to the soft tissues can create scar tissue. While necessary for healing, scar tissue may attach to a nearby structure, restricting the range of motion and may cause compression over nerves or blood vessels.
EXAM AND ASSESSMENT
From your Exam and Assessment, we will determine if what the source of your pain is, if a referral is required, if any imaging is required, and if you need medical leave from work or need to have work limitations set.
Other common injuries sustained from MVA’s
o Sprains and Strains
o Low Back Pain
o Mid Back Pain
o Head Injuries
o Arm and Leg numbness or tingling
o Attorney Liens
o Auto Insurance
o Medical Pay Benefits
o If you’re injured, seek out immediate medical help.
o Take pictures of the accident scene, you and your passenger’s injuries, and damage to all vehicles.
o Always call the police and get a police report (even for accidents in parking lots).
o Avoid talking with the At-Fault Insurance because they will question you to lower the value of your claim.
do not wait
Failure to obtain a timely evaluation and treatment for injuries sustained in an auto accident may negate your ability to receive pain and suffering settlements or monetary compensation for any future medical bill and work loss.
