Motor vehicle accidents

A car crash is serious no matter what, but in some cases the victims of a crash may walk away when they shouldn't.

Dr. Sheila Clasbey has found patients with lingering problems after a car crash.

They feel fine right after the accident, but develop pains over the following several days.

It is better to be safe than sorry.

It is normal to feel worse musculoskeletal pain in the days following an accident.

Wear your seatbelt!
