It is common to experience musculoskeletal injuries following an automobile accident. These types of injuries affect the discs, blood vessels, muscles, tendons, and ligaments and ultimately affect the movement and function of the body, keeping you from continuing your normal lifestyle.
Types of Musculoskeletal Injuries
Some car accident injuries you may experience following a collision could be; ligament sprain, rotator cuff tendonitis, trigger finger, carpal tunnel syndrome, mechanical back syndrome, or herniated or ruptured discs.
If you have sustained a musculoskeletal injury you may be plagued with inflammation, pain that worsens with activity, and redness or swelling of affected areas. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should contact our Atlanta orthopedic doctors immediately to get started on the right treatment plan to help you feel better.
Custom Orthopedic Treatment Plans For Each Patient
We will build an individual plan for you based on your specific needs and injuries. Most treatments will include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory treatment, ergonomic therapy, alternating ice and heat, and of course rest. Most musculoskeletal injuries resolve with time, but seeking medical attention is imperative to ensure that you receive the right care.
Any musculoskeletal injury will be individual in the time it takes to fully recover. Some patients will have a quick resolution of their symptoms after physical therapy and rest. Others with more severe injuries may have to have surgical intervention to fully recover.
