Personal Injury Q&A

What is a personal injury?

A personal injury describes an event that causes trauma to your body. This trauma can result in pain and other complications that affect your function, mobility, long-term health, and quality of life.

Common causes of personal injuries can include:

  • Falls
  • Auto accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Sports participation
  • overuse injury

Any of these events can cause serious injuries to your spine, soft tissues, or joints and lead to chronic pain. Chronic pain typically lasts for three months or longer and, without treatment, can progressively worsen and result in a disability.

When should I consider pain management for a personal injury?

You should schedule a consultation and diagnostic evaluation at Interventional Sports and Pain Management Associates if you experience a personal injury and can’t manage the pain on your own.

Our Board Certified Pain Management Specialist will use on-site diagnostic techniques to accurately identify what’s causing your pain and identify the solution that is right for you.  If over-the-counter medications and rest aren’t enough to treat your pain, our provider will share several options with you to customize a pain management plan with your goals in mind to help restore your quality of life.

Delaying a pain management consultation can increase your risk for further complications and more chronic pain, so the earlier you book an appointment, the better your prognosis.

What can I expect during a personal injury consultation?

During your personal injury consultation at Interventional Sports and Pain Management Associates, the team spends time hearing your story as well as reviewing your symptoms and medical history. They perform a physical exam and may order further diagnostic testing to determine the cause of your pain and the best solution.

If you’re not getting relief with over-the-counter medications, the providers may prescribe anti-inflammatories or pain relievers. You might also benefit from ice or heat therapy and lifestyle changes.

When oral medications aren’t enough to ease pain, you may be a candidate for minimally invasive pain relief procedures like:

  • Nerve blocks
  • rhizotomy
  • nerve ablation
  • Joint injections
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • percutaneous disc decompression
  • Spinal cord stimulation

The team can also refer you for physical therapy or recommend other alternative treatments to increase your comfort and prevent further complications. They continue to monitor your healing progress and can adjust your treatment plan as needed.
