Our doctors and staff are ready and able to evaluate your injuries and help you understand all options for care and recovery.

Pain and inflammation as a result of over-stretching of muscle, tendons and ligaments in and around your spine can result in minor to severe symptoms. Intense sharp to dull pain, achiness, numbness, dizziness, headache are all common symptoms that result from auto accident related injuries.
Our doctors are trained not only to detect injury, but also to maximize your body’s natural healing potential. Don’t wait… Within the first 72 hours your body is already starting to lay down the scar tissue that is needed for joint and muscle repair. During this time, and for the next 4-6 weeks, your body is most susceptible to poor healing. Scar tissue can form incorrectly, leading to adhesions that, if left untreated, could decrease mobility and lead to arthritis.
