“As a Firefighter and Chiropractor, Dr. McNamara has a unique understanding of the forces the human body undergoes during a motor vehicle collision. He learned the importance of conducting a thorough Orthopedic/Neurological exam on every patient during his first 2 1/2 years as a Chiropractor in a Personal Injury clinic, working alongside a Neurologist and Chiropractor. Unfortunately, Dr. McNamara has first-hand experience dealing with his own whiplash after several rear-end collisions by other motorists. The Chiropractic care he received after those whiplash injuries helped him heal quicker and relieved him from the daily headaches he was suffering from. He also understands that even a 5 mile an hour rear-end collision can cause painful symptoms. Don’t ignore your pain just because your car has no visible damage.”

Understanding Your Car Accident Injury

If you’re having pain, stiffness, neuropathy or other issues after a car accident don’t wait, give us a call. Even an impact of 5 mph can cause injuries. Head trauma after hitting airbags are very common after motor vehicle collisions. Dr. McNamara can and does order Brain MRI DTI’s if he suspects a head injury. An MRI DTI is more sensitive then just a regular brain MRI and measures the functionality of the brain.

A whiplash to the cervical spine can cause a number of issues. If your head experienced a hard impact backward and forward you probably have whiplash. Whiplash can cause torn muscles, ligaments, cervical spinal misalignment and pinched cervical nerve roots; the last can create manifestations like sciatica in the arms and hands. The whipping movement can as well cause a concussion as the brain strikes the inside of the skull.
