Auto-Related Injury Q&A

What are common auto-accident related injuries?

Auto accidents or car crashes can cause painful injuries affecting your muscles, ligaments, or other soft tissues. The trauma of an auto accident can also damage your joints and spine and lead to chronic pain and disability.

After an auto-related injury, people commonly seek treatment for issues like:

  • Whiplash
  • neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Headaches
  • Herniated disc
  • bulging disc
  • Shoulder pain
  • sciatica

Without treatment, some conditions continue to worsen over time and may lead to a more complex injury, chronic pain, and disability.

When should I seek treatment for an auto-related injury?

It’s important that you seek a medical evaluation with your primary care physician soon after any type of auto accident. Even if you initially feel okay, you may have underlying soft tissue tears or joint damage that causes pain and other complications to show up later.

You should schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Interventional Sports and Pain Management Associates if you have moderate to severe pain that you can’t manage with over-the-counter pain relievers or other therapies.

The team uses on-site diagnostic technologies to assess the severity of the injury in your joints and soft tissues. They customize a treatment plan to relieve persistent pain that limits your mobility.
