About Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the main reasons that patients seek treatment for neck and back pain. If you are in the same condition, it may be time to seek a specialist to examine if you have sustained a significant injury after the accident that may require short- or long-term treatment. At Tricity Pain Associates, we have doctors at various Texas pain management locations who cater to patients suffering from medical pain that has been caused by vehicular accidents or injuries. Through advanced diagnostic testing, such as digital imaging, a complete physical exam, a look at your medical history, and an evaluation of your symptoms, our team of pain management specialists will be able to determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs and concerns.
SYMPTOMS AFTER AN ACCIDENT
The symptoms after a motor vehicle accident typically are not immediately realized and can manifest several days or even a few weeks following the event. However, it is essential that medical treatment and intervention is provided within the first 1 – 3 days after an accident. This early intervention allows for the best chance of recovery. Motor vehicle accidents may cause whiplash or an injury to the back with whiplash occurring, even in speeds as low as five miles per hour.
The treatment for your specific injuries will vary, depending on the area and type. After a thorough series of diagnostic tests, a concise treatment plan will be created specifically for your injuries. Depending on the extent of your injuries, several forms of noninvasive treatment may be provided, such as spinal cord stimulation, steroid injections, PRP therapy, and other various procedures to treat the back, neck, spine, and extremities.
WHAT TO EXPECT
With any type of treatment, our team of pain management specialists will let you know what you can expect before, during, and after the procedure. You will also most likely need to attend follow-up appointments so that your treatment progress and recovery can be evaluated. If needed, alterations in your treatment plan may be made by one of our specialists to ensure you receive the best possible result. We will also provide you with the necessary aftercare instructions to allow for an optimal recovery period. During the process, we encourage you to reach out to our staff if you have any questions or concerns at all.
We look forward to sharing with you how our expertise can help you achieve the appearance you've been hoping for. For more information or to book a consultation, please contact us.
