Auto Accident Injury Treatment

Car AccidentThe team at Texas Injury Clinic has specialized in auto accident injury treatment for over 12 years.  Whiplash is the most common injury sustained in motor vehicle collisions, commonly occurring when the vehicle has been struck from behind. Whiplash can be caused by any motion similar to a rear-end collision, such as skiing accidents, roller coaster rides, slip and falls, or from being hit, kicked or shaken.

Symptoms of Whiplash Injuries can appear immediately after the injury, but often don't appear until days later.  Symptoms reported include:

  1. Pain in the neck, back, arms or legs.
  2. Stiffness in neck and back.
  3. Radiating or referred pain to the shoulders, arms or legs. 
  4. Headache.
  5. Sensory disturbance, such as pins and needles, to the arms and legs (can be worse with movement).
  6. Popping, cracking or grinding in the neck with movement.

Diagnosis Of Injuries:

Diagnosis is made by a doctor through a patient history, head, neck and back examination, X-rays to rule out bone fractures and flexion-extension views to help diagnose ligament instability. We may involve the use of MRI to determine if there are further injuries. Spinal ligaments are especially vulnerable to overstretching or tears in a car wreck and can be a major cause of permanent impairment and disability.

Treatment For Injuries:

A combination of physiotherapy modalities, manipulations, mobilizations and range of motion exercises are typically recommended.  Generally a cervical collar should not be used for longer than 72 hours as it may lead to a state of hypo-mobility of the spine. Most car accident injury treatment protocols last from one to three months or more in duration depending upon the severity and extent of the injuries.

Attorney Referrals:

In many cases an attorney may be needed to help in your dealings with the insurance company.  We can assist our patients in finding an attorney who specializes in this type of law, if needed. We have over 20 years experience working with PI attorneys in the DFW area. If necessary, we will recommend one that is best suited for your particular case.
