Even minor auto accidents can result in serious injuries, including whiplash, broken bones, and more. Many of these injuries can cause chronic pain and disability if left untreated. Innovative Medical Center offers treatment and rehabilitative services to patients who have sustained injuries in auto accidents. This service is available throughout Fresno, California.
Auto accidents can cause almost any type of injury. Some of these injuries, such as broken bones or lacerations, require immediate medical treatment and can be resolved. However, other injuries may continue to cause problems long after the accident.
One of the most common auto accident injuries that can continue to cause problems for the patient is whiplash. Whiplash occurs when the patient’s neck is moved forcefully in a back-and-forth motion. Patients with this condition often experience pain in the neck, as well as other uncomfortable symptoms.
Other common auto accident injuries that may cause chronic pain and disability include injuries to the knee, shoulder, hips, or other joints.
Following an auto accident, patients should always seek medical treatment at a hospital or doctor’s office, especially if they have conditions that require immediate action. However, if the patient is continuing to experience pain after receiving treatment, they can make an appointment at Innovative Medical Center.
When a patient comes in with auto accident injuries, the doctors at Innovative Medical Center will begin by reviewing the patient’s history, performing a thorough physical examination, and ordering imaging studies to determine the cause of the patient’s symptoms. Once the doctor knows why the patient is in pain, he will develop a customized treatment plan.
The doctors at Innovative Medical Center may recommend several different treatment options to patients with auto accident injuries. For example, patients with auto accident injuries may benefit from corrective exercises, which are designed to strengthen weak areas of the body, improve mobility, and restore normal function. In addition, the doctors at Innovative Medical Center may also recommend massage therapy, trigger point injections, joint injection therapy, and other treatments, depending on the patient’s needs. Many patients with this problem may also benefit from spinal manipulation. The purpose of spinal manipulation is to resolve any problems with alignment in the patient’s spine that could be contributing to pain and other symptoms.
The amount of time it takes to recover from auto accident injuries varies based on the extent of the injuries and the patient’s overall physical condition. Many patients experience some improvement immediately. However, most patients will need multiple treatment sessions to reach their optimum level of functioning.
