Walking away from a car accident without noticeable damage may cause relief despite the possibility of an underlying condition existing. Post-traumatic pain can take a few days to several weeks to appear, long after the collision took place.
The force of a car accident can cause tissue damage or injuries like Whiplash. Although the accident victim may feel fine following their collision, common injuries associated with these events often go unnoticed for some time. Having an Atlanta Orthopedic Doctor evaluate your condition immediately following a collision is the only way to prevent permanent damage and chronic pain.
Treating Post-Accident Symptoms
Car accidents have the potential to cause multiple injuries, making it difficult for patients to describe the location and source of their symptoms. To ensure a safe and complete recovery, it’s recommended to schedule a series of treatment sessions with an Orthopedic Doctor, as it allows your health and conditions to be closely monitored.
To determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your needs, an examination is required to understand the location, extent, and depth of the injury. Depending on the circumstances, an X-ray or CT Scan may be recommended to further explore the properties of your condition. Once your Orthopedic Doctor can diagnose the source of your injury, a treatment plan will be customized to align with your symptoms.
A few of the more conventional treatment solutions our clinic uses to treat post-traumatic pain include:
- Electrical nerve stimulation
- Behavior modification
- Spinal adjustments
- Trigger point therapy
- Physical therapy
- Spinal decompression
