One moment everything may seem fine, when suddenly you’re involved in a serious collision. Most people have one thing on their mind after a car accident - their car! However, it’s important to remember that you and your injuries come first. A visit to your Pain Specialist should always follow a motor vehicle accident, as we are specialists in damage to soft and hard tissue.
How Can A Pain Specialist Help Me After My Motor Vehicle Accident?
Pain Specialists are able to treat neck and back injuries associated with motor vehicle accidents. Many times, individuals who have been injured in a car/big truck accident experience such intense muscle pain and stiffness that they simply cannot function normally. When left untreated, this discomfort can be a serious issue.
After a motor vehicle accident, some individuals experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away, such as blurred vision, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, reduced range of motion, and arm pain. Whiplash can also result in minor back injuries, muscle injuries, ligament problems, and disc damage. Other individuals may be injured and feel nothing at all.
Treating pain or whiplash should never be secondary to bringing your car to the mechanic or working with your insurance company. If you’ve had a motor vehicle accident recently, your first priority should be making an appointment with us to evaluate your injury and help decrease your pain!
