Auto Accidents/Whiplash

OUR TEAM OF PROVIDERS SPECIALIZES IN HELPING PATIENTS WHO HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN AUTO ACCIDENTS GET THE BEST TYPES OF TREATMENTS.

If you are involved in a car accident, the laws in Minnesota allow you to get medical help from a provider of your choosing regardless of who is at fault. The therapies for treating auto injuries and whiplash offered at Team Health Care Clinic in Champlin are unique because they are directed at treating injuries at their root rather than simply medicating symptoms, and because of the number of treatment options available.

We offer free consultations to any patient who has been involved in an auto accident.

IT’S IMPORTANT TO GET AN EXAM AFTER AN ACCIDENT

Even if you don’t feel anything immediately after the accident, you should come in and get checked out. Many injuries manifest themselves months or more after the initial accident.

At Team Health Care Clinic our providers have treated thousands of patients who were injured in car accidents. We work together to provide the highest level of care, and patients appreciate our multi-specialty approach to accident recovery. Depending on the injury, our providers specialize in many types of treatments including:

  • Orthopedics
  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic internist and neurology
  • Massage therapy
  • Family practice medicine

Our providers specialize in auto accident injury cases

OUR PHYSICAL THERAPY TEAM IS HERE TO HELP

Our team of physical therapy providers helps patients recover as quickly as possible after auto accidents. They specialize in assessing injured tissue, and then supply the proper response to help the tissue return to normal. This may include soft tissue techniques, kinesiotaping, and exercise training; whatever is necessary for the patient to become healthy and active again. Without this aspect of care, the muscles may not work properly and the patient can end up with a lifelong problem.

THERE ARE FOUR SERIOUS CONDITIONS THAT WE SEE MOST OFTEN SEE AS A RESULT OF A CAR ACCIDENT.

  1. Whiplash is the forceful, jerking of the head and neck due to a sudden change in the direction or speed of your body from a car collision. This forceful snapping of the head and neck causes misalignment of the bones of the neck, as well as tearing of the muscles and ligaments that support the bones.
  2. Head injuries and concussions happen during a car accident because the head often collides with objects in the car such as windshields, steering wheels and airbags. The force of the brain striking the skull due to the sudden change in speed may also cause trauma.
  3. Back injuries occur when the same forceful trauma causing a whiplash creates trauma to the upper and lower back. Disc herniations and sciatica are also common injuries caused to the lower back.
  4. Injuries to the upper extremity often occur from the extreme forces that are exerted on the wrists, elbows and shoulders as the driver holds the steering wheel through the collision and airbag deployment. Lower extremity injuries often occur due to striking the steering wheel and dashboard as it collapses from the car collision.
