What are common accident injuries?

Auto accidents can cause a variety of musculoskeletal injuries that might lead to acute or chronic pain, reduced range of joint motion, and disability. 

One of the most common injuries you can experience as a result of an auto accident is whiplash. This painful condition occurs when your neck forcefully moves back and forth, which can lead to muscle sprains or tears. Without treatment, whiplash can increase your risk for osteoarthritis in the vertebrae of your cervical spine.

Anodyne Pain & Wellness Solutions also manages other conditions that develop from auto accidents, including:

  • Back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Fractures
  • Ligament strains
  • Nerve damage (neuropathy)

The team focuses on nonsurgical therapies, including chiropractic adjustments to ease your pain and restore your overall mobility.

When should I seek medical care for an auto accident injury?

Schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Anodyne Pain & Wellness Solutions soon after experiencing an auto accident, even if you don’t have symptoms. In some cases, auto accident injuries won’t cause pain right away, but trauma becomes more apparent in the days after the event.

The skilled medical team assesses your musculoskeletal health during a physical exam. They check for issues like swelling, bruising, and decreased mobility and may order imaging tests to diagnose soft tissue tears, nerve damage, or fractured bones.

How are auto accident injuries treated?

Anodyne Pain & Wellness Solutions provides customized treatment plans to manage your pain and prevent the injury from worsening.

The team may recommend acupuncture to ease pain and inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments are available to realign your spine and joints, relieve inflammation, and increase blood circulation. They also offer cold laser therapy, a non-invasive treatment using low-intensity light to ease inflammation and pain.

You may also be a candidate for pain management services like trigger point injections to keep you pain-free. Trigger point injections deliver an anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication into overly tight muscles to relax them.

The team might refer you for physical therapy to support your recovery from an accident. They can also recommend stretching exercises you can do at home to keep your muscles and joints flexible and strong.
