Dec 6, 2019

Total Orthopedic Care For Auto Accident Injuries | AICA Orthopedics If involved in an auto accident, seeking care as soon as possible can mean all the difference in your chance for a full recovery versus dealing with long term chronic pain.

What To Do After an Accident

When involved in an auto accident, we are always taught to exchange insurance information with the other driver to ensure our car will be taken care of. Still, sometimes we forget to care for ourselves and put off seeking treatment for our car accident injuries.

Even if you assess yourself and determine you don’t have a scratch on you, it is always best to have a medical professional evaluate you to ensure nothing serious is going on below the surface.

Whiplash to some may seem like an injury everyone endures in an accident and may think symptoms will go away within a few days. That may be the case for some, but what if you are that percentage of whiplash victims that endure serious trauma to the musculoskeletal system. Damage to the body as a result of whiplash can cause damage to the muscles, ligaments, and tissues around the neck area.

The pain associated with these types of orthopedic injuries doesn’t always manifest itself immediately, but the injury can nonetheless be life-altering if it goes untreated.
