Car Accident Treatment
Aside from general back pain or a sports injury, one of the most common reasons for someone to visit a chiropractor is after being involved in a motor vehicle accident. Neck, back, and shoulder injuries are prevalent and can be brutal after a car crash due to the sudden changes in motion, speed, and direction. Motus Sport and Spine provides a well-rounded treatment approach for a number of injuries that can result from a car accident.
Car Accident Injuries
We treat a number of sports related conditions including but not limited to:
One of the most prevalent injuries seen after a car accident is whiplash. Sometimes referred to as a neck sprain or strain, whiplash happens when the head is rapidly jerked back and forth, or when the neck is rapidly hyper-extended. It’s most common after accidents where a vehicle has been rear-ended due to the sudden change in motion. Whiplash can occur in impacts as slow as a few mph, so even a minor fender bender could leave you in pain.

• Disc Bulges/Herniations

Car accidents can take a toll on the body. Every new patient at Motus Sport and Spine begins their first visit the same way, with a thorough assessment. Our assessments include orthopedic testing, neurologic testing, and functional assessments in order to provide our team with a better picture of the severity of your injuries and limitations. Orthopedic tests look for issues within joints and the skeletal structure. Neurological testing examines nerves, reflexes, motor strength and coordination. Finally, functional assessments allow us to test your movement and note any restrictions or limitations that may be affecting your activities of daily living. This helps us to determine the extent of your injuries from the car accident and allow us to determine the best course of action to ensure that you receive the care you need so you can get back to the activities you enjoyed prior to the accident.
Motus Sport and Spine utilizes a number of techniques to treat car accident injuries including:
