Long-Term Consequences
of Whiplash

Whiplash from an automobile accident can result in chronic pain if treatment is delayed. That’s why we encourage you to seek care right away.

Because Dr. Thomas Schmidt specializes in caring for those with spinal ligament injuries, you can get out of pain and on the road to recovery.

What Is Spinal Instability?

As the root of many acute and chronic spinal health problems, spinal instability is a primary cause of low back pain. Spinal instability can result from a sprain, fracture or dislocation. When there is abnormal spinal motion and position, pain and nerve interference can occur.

A radiographic evaluation can determine if you have spinal instability. If you suspect you have spinal instability, Dr. Schmidt can offer the help you need.

Spinal Soft Tissue Injury

In this video, you will learn more about the 10 different basic ligaments in the body. When any of these ligaments are damaged, a spinal sprain can result.

When there is a spinal sprain, there is also a spinal subluxation or interference. It’s important that we locate that subluxation and provide correction as soon as possible.

Dr. Schmidt uses Computerized Radiographic Mensuration Analysis (CRMA) as an important tool in determining if spinal soft tissue injury has occurred.

The Mechanism of
Spinal Injury

An automobile accident can be considered a major mechanism that causes injury to the body. The damage that results from a mechanism is called a lesion.

To avoid long-term consequences to the body, it’s important to see Dr. Schmidt to evaluate the lesion. One of the most common ones is a spinal sprain. Left untreated, lesions from an auto accident can lead to chronic pain.

Dr. Schmidt can provide solutions to help your body recover.

Computerized Radiographic
Mensuration Analysis (CRMA)

Injuries of the spinal ligament can be painful and debilitating. Using CRMA, Dr. Schmidt can diagnose torn spinal ligaments, which can cause joint instability, long-term pain and gradual deterioration.

With the CRMA technology, he can determine where the spinal sprain is located and how severe it is. Once that determination is made, he can recommend a course of care.

Magnitude of the Impact
vs. Degree of Injury

Does the severity of an impact relate to the extent of your Woodbury spinal ligament injury? According to top websites cited in this video, “the severity of the trauma is often not correlated with the seriousness of the clinical problems.”

Trauma can result in a variety of issues such as headaches, visual disturbances, concussion, shoulder and arm pain, tinnitus and much more. We want to help you get the care you need so you can avoid chronic pain and other symptoms following an auto accident.

The AMA’s Position on
Spinal Ligament Injuries

This video explores whether it was wrong of the American Medical Association (AMA) to create a demonstrable and regulated means of assessing and authenticating the severity of spinal injuries – the most common of which is the spinal sprain. Several types of sprains are discussed.

Dr. Schmidt is highly qualified to determine the extent of your spinal injuries and provide care to help you.

CRMA as the EKG
of Spinal Trauma

If you believe you sustained a spinal injury, it’s important to get evaluated properly.

Schmidt Chiropractic Clinic uses a Computerized Radiographic Mensuration Analysis (CRMA) which is to the spine what the EKG is to the heart.

With CRMA Dr. Schmidt can accurately diagnose, make a prognosis and care for spinal ligament sprains.
