Your symptoms can be mild and go away on their own, come and go, or, in some cases, be severe and crippling. Visit our team at Integrity Spine & Orthopedics as soon as possible after an accident.
To determine if you have an injury associated with a motor vehicle accident, our team discusses your symptoms, medical history, and accident history. We check your vital signs and complete a physical exam to look for signs of problems.
You might need a blood test, X-rays, an ultrasound, an MRI, a CT scan, or another diagnostic procedure to determine how to best treat your condition.
Standard treatments for motor vehicle accident injuries include:
There are things you can do at home to recover from minor motor vehicle accident injuries. These include applying ice or heat packs, getting plenty of rest, and wearing a brace.
Physical therapy is one of the best ways to strengthen and stretch affected tissues and reduce the risk of further pain.
Medicine can reduce inflammation and discomfort during the healing process after a motor vehicle accident injury.
Injections reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain while you heal. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections stimulate your body’s natural ability to generate new cells using plasma and platelets sourced from your own blood.
Casting, resetting broken bones, immobilization, traction, and surgery are all treatments for fractures suffered during accidents.
Surgery can remove, repair, or replace tissues damaged during a motor vehicle accident.
