What Can Life Health Medical Do To Help Heal Injuries?
Are you suffering from injuries sustained in an auto accident? Car accidents cause a variety of injuries throughout the body. Life Health Medical Center provides rehabilitation and pain management for patients following an accident. Our physician will evaluate the extent of your injury to determine what treatments will be the best for your body. We often treat headaches, whiplash, back pain, neck pain, and more.
Typical Accident Injuries
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries we see in patients following an auto accident. When you are involved in a car wreck, your neck will be whipped back and forth and all around, which can cause damage to the muscles and tissues in the back and neck. Patients may suffer from stiffness immediately following the accident. Other patients start to develop stiffness several days after a car accident. Headaches can lead to migraines if the right treatments are not used. If you are dealing with headaches following a car accident, call our Salt Lake Medical Center to discuss the right treatments.
Herniated discs are another common injury after a car accident. Herniated discs can be immensely painful if they are not properly treated. Several patients can end up with sciatic pain related to injuries sustained during a car accident. Back pain unrelated to disc injury is a common injury in car accidents as well. The impact and jerking involved in car accidents is enough to cause injury to the tissues, muscles, and vertebrae in the back. These injuries can become severe very quickly, and should be looked at by a doctor immediately after the accident to avoid further injury.
A large portion of car accidents result in injuries to the arms and legs. Unfortunately these injuries can be complex due to the unpredictable of car accidents. When a collision occurs, the body is forced into moving as quickly as the car does and even thought the seatbelt limits the movement of the victims, their arms and legs are still susceptible to injury. Legs can be broken by colliding with the dashboard upon impact, or experience crushing injuries during a head on collision where the front of the car is collapsed. Car accidents put an unnatural amount of force on the victim’s body sometimes more than the bones can handle, and arms are weaker compared to legs and are even more susceptible to breaks.
Less Common Accident Injuries
Head injuries such as concussions and brain injuries are less common injuries in car accidents but are still very serious when they do happen. Not all head injuries present symptoms immediately after the accident, it can take up to several days or weeks. Chest injuries are serious as well but are not among the most common car accident injuries. Chest injuries are usually a result of the seatbelt or airbag and take form of bruises or broken bones.
