Auto Accident Injuries

Auto accidents causing debilitating orthopedic injuries occur in Central Florida everyday, and even fender benders can damage muscle and bone due to an impact or sudden stop. The experienced orthopedists at Zion Medical Inc specialize in being able to detect and rehabilitate your auto accident injury, which can significantly improve your mobility and reduce pain.

Regardless of the speed of your vehicle prior to impact, auto accidents have the ability to exert extreme force on the human body, including trauma to your bones, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissues. Orthopedic injuries do not always hurt or display symptoms right away, but they can be life-altering if untreated.

Common Auto Accident Injuries

If you or a loved one have endured an auto accident, it’s entirely possible that you have already sustained an orthopedic injury without even realizing it. Injuries like whiplash, which occurs due to a sudden snapping forward (or backward) of the neck, can cause muscle, ligament, and connective tissue injuries. Other common auto accident injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Muscle strain or rupture
  • Tendon inflammation, tear, or rupture
  • Ligament strain, tear, or rupture

Auto Accident Orthopedic Injury Symptoms

No two auto accident injuries are exactly the same, and no two people experience pain from injuries the same way either. There have been instances recorded where victims suffering from torn ligaments (and even broken bones) are not immediately aware of their injuries, so it is crucially important to be on the lookout for any of the following symptoms (that you might otherwise overlook), and to seek medical attention as soon as possible:

  • Limited range of motion
  • Pain, swelling, or bruising
  • Tingling or burning sensations
  • Sagging shoulder, arm, or joint
  • Loss of ability to lift heavy objects
  • Lack of mobility
  • A grinding sensation while moving
  • Noticeable bump near injury

Symptoms can vary greatly depending on your unique injuries. At Zion Medical, Inc, we specialize in orthopedic injuries, and will work as your partner to diagnose and heal your injuries.
