Auto Accidents Q & A

What injuries can result from auto accidents?

Each year, about 4.5 million people in the United States are involved in a serious car accident. Even minor accidents can cause significant injury. If you experience an auto accident, you might suffer from:

  • Head injuries
  • Fractured ribs
  • Broken bones
  • Herniated disks
  • Joint trauma
  • Whiplash
  • Cuts and scrapes

After an accident, you might experience a surge of adrenaline. Adrenaline is a hormone that can keep you from feeling pain. Because of these hormone surges, you may not recognize the extent of your injuries right away.

That's why you need to see a qualified doctor after an auto accident. Your provider can give you a full exam and prompt treatment.  

Restoration Osteopathic Medicine can help you heal from injuries caused by auto accidents. The practice offers practical solutions for stubborn pain.

What treatments are available?

At the practice, you can expect to receive a customized treatment plan. Your provider first performs an in-depth evaluation. Your evaluation may include a physical exam and imaging tests. Once your provider knows what's causing your symptoms, you can explore your treatment options.

Each treatment plan is unique and tailored to meet your needs. Your plan may include:

  • Follow-up imaging tests
  • Prescription medications
  • Hands-on treatments or massages
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Referrals to specialists

Restoration Osteopathic Medicine knows that record-keeping is essential after an accident. They help you gather the medical records you need for insurance claims or litigation. The staff also guides you so you can make the most of your personal injury protection (PIP) allotments.

How can osteopathic medicine heal my injuries?

Osteopathic medicine views all parts of the body as an interconnected system. An injury or illness in one area of your body can have far-reaching consequences. Restoration Osteopathic Medicine gets to the root of the problem so you can find lasting relief.

Your provider may suggest an osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). During an OMT, your provider uses hands-on techniques to maneuver injured bones and tissues back into place. These techniques are often used alongside traditional treatment, like drugs or surgery. But OMT can also work as a stand-alone treatment.

Many people prefer to avoid medication or surgery after an accident. Restoration Osteopathic Medicine can help you explore your options for drug-free, nonsurgical treatment. For a consultation, call the office today or schedule an appointment online.
