Auto Accident Injury Pain

Injuries incurred during auto accidents often come with a great deal of pain. Occasionally, the pain comes on immediately, and can be lessened with time and pain medications. Other times, the pain can become chronic, and require long-term treatment. Because of this, pain management is a vital component of Zion Medical, Inc's holistic approach to the treatment of auto accident injuries.

Auto Accident Pain Management

Pain management is a discipline of medicine which focuses on treating and relieving pain anywhere on the body. Physicians who specialize in pain management treatments study painful afflictions and methods to reduce pain in patients.

There are multiple pain relief methods and tools that a pain management doctor may utilize including:

  • Prescription pain medications
  • Epidurals
  • Facet joint injections
  • Pain pumps

Our pain management doctors help treat patients with the following types of auto accident pain:

  • Neck pain from whiplash
  • Back pain
  • Pain in the legs
  • Headaches
  • And more

Pain is a complicated issue that is not fully understood. Treating pain, whether it is acute or chronic, is equally complex, and an experienced team of medical professionals is required to deliver comprehensive care.

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 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 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 eliminate your pain.
