MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS/WORK RELATED INJURIES
Minor to more severe motor vehicle accidents may cause whiplash injuries. This trauma may lead to micro tearing of the soft tissue structures within the neck and back thus resulting in pain and inflammation as well as muscle spasm, disc herniation, headaches, dizziness as well as blunt trauma to other structures within the vehicle.
Injuries ranging from, weekend warriors who simply overexerted themselves to high level competitive athletes.

Is resulting from or as a result of; Neuropathy, De-conditioning, Lower extremity weakness.
Prolonged sustained positions while sitting at work with poor ergonomics may be the source of many musculoskeletal pains and overuse syndromes.
TMJ (TEMPORAL MANDIBULAR JOINT DYSFUNCTION)
TMJ dysfunction is resulting from arthritis, faulty posture/forward head position.
