Auto Injury Treatment

Were you recently the victim of a car accident?

The symptoms that can arise after a large trauma can set in immediately or appear days or even weeks later. The most common auto injury in the state of Arizona is a rear-end collision. Even at a low speed, the head can snap back upon impact. As forward momentum of the body is halted by the seat belt, the head remains in motion and rapidly stretches the neck and back beyond its normal limits.

Symptoms from the whiplash include:

  • Neck and Back Stiffness
  • Neck and Back Pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Numbness
  • Headaches and more…

These symptoms are the body’s way of protecting itself from further damage. Many people think of whiplash as a minor medical issue, but it can lead to serious complications if left untreated, such as scar tissue formation, spinal arthritis and degenerative disc disease.

Seek Treatment within 72 hours or less!

For best results, research shows patients who seek care within 72 hours of an auto accident have a significantly higher reduction in pain and faster recovery time. After a trauma, the body begins to lay down scar tissue in the damaged muscles and ligaments. If untreated, scar tissue can lead to chronic pain. The pain many feel years after an accident can often be traced back to accumulated scar tissue and untreated structural damage. Getting treatment as soon as you can after an accident allows the medical provider to get a head start breaking down scar tissue and working with the body’s natural healing process. This allows for faster and more effective treatment times.

If you have suffered an injury in a car crash, our highly trained team is very experienced in dealing with auto injury and we would love to help you and your family return to health after your accident.

How Much Does Treatment Cost?

Car wrecks are stressful enough without worrying about cost. The fear of cost often keeps patients from getting the treatment they need, when they need it most. We will happily work with your insurance company or accept a lien so you can focus on treatment instead of bills.
