If you have been in a car or truck accident, don’t wait to get the medical attention you need. A thorough evaluation can help prevent years of unnecessary pain and suffering if diagnosed early.

Forces from even a mild collision shove the head and body in different directions, severely straining the neck’s delicate network of muscles, vertebrae, ligaments and tendons. Sometimes a patient might not even know they sustained an injury. A few days or weeks later, however, the victim may start suffering from neck pain, back pain, headaches, and vision problems, with seemingly no cause.
