Auto Accident Care
Auto accidents can adversely affect your health and lifestyle. One day you are living life to the fullest, and the next day you may be struggling to walk, run, sit or even sleep comfortably at night. It is a stressful experience with the potential to impact your activities at work and home. Summit believes it is never too late to help you manage your back and neck pain that resulted from an auto accident.
Auto Accidents and Spine Injuries
Auto accidents can cause the body to be suddenly and abruptly thrown in any direction beyond its normal limits. The body’s muscles, tendons and ligaments supporting the spine and head may be over-stretched and torn. You may experience immediate pain or it could take weeks or months to develop. These types of injuries often don’t go away and won’t improve without treatment. Our goal is to evaluate the cause of your pain and develop a treatment program that will help you recover as quickly as possible. Summit is committed to delivering the highest quality of care to every patient at every visit.

For over thirty years, Summit Orthopedics has been a leader in spine care in Minnesota. In fact, Summit has recently joined practices with Institute for Low Back and Neck Care (ILBNC) to treat hundreds of patients – just like you – who have been involved in auto accidents. Using state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, our physicians will conduct a thorough examination to find the source of your pain. Based on that exam they will work with you to develop a treatment plan to bring you relief and healing. Treatment options include non-surgical management, minimally invasive surgery and more involved surgery, if deemed appropriate for your injury.
