  • What Happened Within This Player’s Skull
    June 8, 2017

    When player No. 81 took this blow to his head several years ago, it was just one of many concussions that have occurred throughout college football and the N.F.L. But what made this one different was that this player was wearing a mouth guard with motion sensors. The information from those sensors has given researchers a more detailed and precise window into what was happening within the player’s brain in the milliseconds after the hit.

  • Multi-Specialty HealthCare (MSHC) Rocks a Socks Event
    December 15, 2016

    Amazing things are afoot when people come together for a noble cause.

    At MSHC, we recently teamed up with Helping Up Mission, a charity foundation in the city of Baltimore, to collect and donate socks for the homeless. An often forgotten about item, socks are in high demand and help those most in need stay warm during the year’s coldest months.

  • Heavy Duty: Are you prepared to treat the rising population of obese patients?
    December 7, 2016

    Outpatient facilities everywhere are caught in a bind. As patients get larger, their potential client bases get smaller. At least, that is, if facilities adhere to the traditional dictate that treating morbidly obese patients in an outpatient setting is likely to be too risky.

  • Maximizing Your Doctor Visit
    June 17, 2016

    A trip to the doctor is one of life’s more stressful events, particularly after accident or injury. You are suddenly thrust into the role of being a patient, which implies a certain sense of passivity. You should never be passive when it comes to your health! I want active patients, people who will participate with me in solving their health problems. So I am going to explain to you, from a background of 27 years of practice, how to get the most out of your doctors visit by being an active participant in the process.

  • Delayed Response After Injury
    June 17, 2016

    I have heard many times throughout my career that a delayed response to treatment after a personal injury can be very difficult to prove. One must do some further investigation to give the particular injury its due credibility. The provider must look at...

  • Kinematics Part 2
    May 23, 2016

    When cars collide at commonly experienced speeds, the entire event is over in around a third of a second. In our culture this happens routinely, but from an evolutionary perspective it is a freak occurrence. The human body evolved to run and jump and lift and carry in a completely natural environment. Feet were never designed to walk on completely flat, level surfaces, for where can such be found in nature? In an artificial machine based situation such as a car accident, the forces involved are grossly excessive to the design tolerances of our bodies. A third of a second impact happens so fast that your brain remains uninformed of its occurrence until it is already over. We therefore have no ability to meaningfully react to an unexpected car accident once the collision occurs.

  • Kinematics
    May 3, 2016

    For the purposes of this article kinematics will be roughly defined as that chain of events which transfers energy from a moving motor vehicle into the body of the driver of another vehicle through a motor vehicle collision (MVC). This transfer of energy is what causes the injuries sustained in an MVC.

  • Documenting Pain and Suffering
    March 23, 2016

    Science is the process of breaking an element of reality into its constituent parts for quantification and analysis. In the medical sciences we document pain and suffering (P&S) by breaking the reality of the patient’s suffering into objective documentation through the magic of office paperwork. This gives the patient the ability to relay to the doctor the facts of the injury, the experience of their pain and suffering, and how it affects his/her life.

  • Another Great Verdict
    February 8, 2016

    Multi-Specialty HealthCare (MSHC) is pleased to announce another great verdict against State Farm in Anne Arundel County by Ron Jarashow, our Maryland Association for Justice (MAJ) brother.

  • The Psychological Effects of Motor Vehicle Accident
    February 5, 2016

    Musculoskeletal injuries are always accompanied by some form of emotional reaction. A motor vehicle accident (MVA) may result in both physical injury and significant emotional trauma. In 2008 alone, there were over 1.5 million non-fatal car accidents in the US. While most of these will not result in significant long-term psychological problems, even a one-percent rate of PTSD from MVA’s will leave 15,000 people affected.
