Motor Vehicle Accidents
At Suburban Orthopaedics, we know that motor vehicle accidents can have a long-lasting negative impact on your quality of life, affecting your mobility and can cause chronic pain. You should seek medical treatment after a car accident even if you think you just have a few bumps and bruises. Even minor accidents that seem to do little damage to your bumper can have long-reaching impacts on your health including:
- Spinal cord trauma
- Broken limbs
- Broken ribs
- Soft tissue injuries that damage the cartilage and tendon
- Whiplash/Neck Injury
- Concussion/Chronic Migraines
- Degenerative disc diseases
These injuries can have life-long side effects that impact your mobility and cause chronic pain. You must seek treatment after a motor vehicle accident to rule out any significant injuries via imaging like X-rays, CT Scans, and MRI.
Patients who have experienced a motor vehicle accident may need:
- Physical therapy
- Pain Management
Motor Vehicle Accidents
It can be difficult to seek care if you’re unsure if your personal injury is covered, and the longer you wait to find coverage, the more your injury can impact your daily life and become a chronic condition. Personal injury accidents include such instances as
- Slip and fall accidents
- Injury caused by faulty construction or a defective product
These accidents tend to result in injuries that require orthopedic treatment such as:
- Broken bones
- Ligament tears
- Joint Injuries
- Spinal Injuries
- Soft Tissue Injuries
These injuries can cause chronic pain and lead to muscle weakness and re-injury. Personal injury accidents can result in serious chronic joint and pain issues and cause medical hardships including long-term disability, surgery, or the need for long-term physical therapy. Many people who have suffered a personal injury opt not to seek medical treatment because they’re concerned the process will be complicated. You should see a doctor within 72 hours of a slip and fall or personal injury to rule out any serious complications, but the sooner you can be seen, the better your overall recovery outcome will be.
It can be difficult to understand treatment options when you’re dealing with personal injury. Most people injured in a motor vehicle or personal injury incident tend to delay their care because of the unknown claims process. A delay in care can cause more suffering, and ultimately be more expensive on you, the patient. If you’ve been injured at another party’s expense, and need care, our trained and expert staff, Suburban Orthopedic, is ready to help wade through the claims and get back on your feet.
