Types of injuries
Car crashes are a common occurrence and can be hard to handle emotionally. However, it is important not to forget the physical aspect of an accident as well. If you do not seek medical attention right away for any muscle or soft tissue pain following your car crash, these symptoms will only get worse with time causing more damage than if they had been treated immediately.
This is why we recommend that you contact 1st Choice Accident & Injury Network Provider as soon after the incident as possible so our doctors can diagnose any potential injury right away with accurate testing before it worsens into something more serious down the line.

How is a whiplash diagnosed?
Our whiplash specialists will complete a thorough medical history and physical exam, including tests for invisible soft tissue damage that can be missed on X-Rays.
X-rays are a form of electromagnetic energy that is able to produce images of internal tissues, bones, and organs onto film. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) also releases radiation from the outside while using magnetic fields for detailed imagery inside your body. CT scan uses X-ray technology in addition to computer science as they make horizontal or axial images throughout any part of one’s body including their bones, muscles, and fat. Unlike x-rays which do not show detail on soft tissue structures like organs; CT scans provide an immediate snapshot with more clarity than general x rays can offer by making multiple passes through different parts when looking at bone density.
