Luis E. Crespo M.D. | Developer of the Crespo Technique(SM) of Non-Surgical Spine Care

 

 

 

Comprehensive Injury Care specializing in Auto Accident Injury.  

 

All types of acute injuries are treated at the clinic. Our statistics show whiplash (due to rapid deceleration or acceleration) to the neck and mid- to lower back region are the most common injuries seen. Many of the patients have been injured as the result of sports, occupational incidents or automobile accidents. Bending, lifting, twisting, even walking, become difficult, painful movements. In the U.S. back symptoms are the most common cause of disability for persons under age 45. According to Cornell University Professor Alan Hedge, back symptoms are among the 10 leading causes for patient visits to emergency rooms, hospital outpatient departments and physicians’ offices. The symptoms of these injuries often cause patients to inappropriately use emergency rooms as a source of ongoing post-injury care, according to Dr. Crespo, a trauma medicine veteran. Dr. Crespo saw this firsthand during his more than 13 years of emergency and trauma medicine practice in the Tampa Bay area as medical director of Emergency Medicine at Memorial and Town & Country hospitals. He says it was that observation coupled with his interest in injury trauma and his love of neurology and orthopedics that led him to diversify his practice. He began his clinical practice for comprehensive injury care and rehabilitation in 1996. Pain management was a logical extension, and today, Dr. Crespo is a member of Hillsborough County Medical Association.
