Over 2 million car accidents occur every year.
Car accidents can cause debilitating injuries, both physically and emotionally. The force from an automobile that is transferred into your spine during a motor vehicle accident is tremendous, even in a slow speed collision ranging (1-2 mph to 25mph).
These accidents can cause patients to miss work and make everyday excruciating.
To ensure proper healing, it is very important to seek immediate care from a qualified physician as soon as possible following the incident.
