Car accident injuries occur when you drive into another car, person, or object. Minor car accident injuries, like whiplash, typically aren’t serious, but without treatment, they can affect your mobility and quality of life.
At Physicians Group, LLC, the team treats various car accident injuries, including:
The team also treats knee injuries, including torn meniscus and torn cartilage.
To diagnose a car accident injury, your Physicians Group, LLC provider reviews your medical records and asks about your accident, including how fast you were going, if you were wearing your seatbelt, and what part of your car was hit.
Next, your provider performs a physical exam. During the physical, your provider checks the part (or parts) of your body experiencing discomfort. For example, if you have a sore neck, your provider looks for redness, swelling, or bruising. They also test your neck’s range of motion and ability to move your head from side to side.
Last, your provider orders diagnostic imaging, like traditional X-rays, digital motion X-rays, or an MRI to examine your bones, joints, and soft tissues.
Treatment of car accident injuries depends on various factors, including your age, the severity of your symptoms, and their effect on your daily routine. The team at Physicians Group, LLC might recommend:
If these treatments don’t provide relief, or your symptoms get worse, surgery might be necessary. The team at Physicians Group, LLC performs minimally invasive and traditional open orthopedic surgery.
There’s no way to prevent car accident injuries entirely, but you can reduce your risk by being a defensive driver. The Physicians Group, LLC team recommends following the speed limit, always wearing your seatbelt, and checking your rearview and side view mirrors regularly.
