Auto Accidents And Whiplash
Pain and dysfunction after an auto accident can surprisingly present itself days or even months later from the onset. Seeking out a medical examination post injury is recommended in order to detect any dysfunction or potential pain that could present itself in the future.
Auto injuries can be very complex usually involving a combination of muscle, ligament, bone and nerve pain. When such accidents occur unlike one's that we anticipate coming, these catch us off guard, unprepared to brace for the impact. With such injuries whiplash often occurs resulting in chronic neck pain if not treated accordingly. At Pioneer Sports and Pain Center the doctors provide a thorough exam to determine the involved structures causing pain and limiting function. A comprehensive treatment is then given that combines soft tissue therapy, physiotherapy modalities (ultrasound, electrical stimulation, hot & cold therapy) spinal manipulation, and exercise therapy.
Common injuries that we see coming from auto accidents…
- Facet joint damage
- Disc herniation
- Mild traumatic brain injuries
The doctors at Pioneer Sports and Pain Center are trained to treat a wide range of injuries and pain syndromes. They treat injuries of the neck and back as well as the extremities. Acute injuries such as sprains and strains, as well as chronic, degenerative conditions can be effectively treated conservatively at Pioneer Sports and Pain Center. Some conditions require additional medical treatment, and the doctors at Pioneer Sports and Pain Center work closely with specialists in all areas of medicine and help patients get to the right provider when a referral is indicated.
