Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents are an everyday occurrence and will probably effect each of us at some point in our lives. Fortunately due to advanced safety features in most cars today, the majority of these accidents are minor and most of us will be able to walk away without significant injury. What many people do not realize is that even minor car accidents can create forces of significant magnitude that will most often cause some degree of bodily injury, especially to the muscles, ligaments, and joints of the spine column.
Many of our patients come to us several weeks after a relatively minor accident saying the same thing..."I thought the pain would just go away". The truth is, the pain often does not just go away on its own with time. Realize that over 60% of people involved in so called "minor accidents" still have symptoms several years later. Spinal trauma research shows that delaying appropriate treatment will prolong your recovery, allow scar tissue to form, and make it more likely that recovery will be less than adequate. Do not delay treatment.
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle and are experiencing even minor symptoms call us and schedule your appointment as soon as possible. The only good news about being in a motor vehicle accident is that most automobile insurance companies will cover your treatment with us at 100%. So if you have been involved in a car accident...there is no reason to wait and see what happens. Call us today at 978-975-8510.
