Accident Injuries

Accident Injuries Q&A

What are common accident injuries?

There are a variety of accidents that can negatively impact your long-term health and cause chronic pain.

The team at Centennial Spine and Pain can diagnose and treat a wide range of painful injuries that result from:

  • Auto accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bike accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents

These situations can cause soft tissue injuries, head trauma, and spinal cord injuries that range from mild to life-threatening.

One of the most common consequences of accident injuries is whiplash, a neck injury that results from the force of the back-and-forth movement of your head at the time of impact.

What are the symptoms of accident injuries?

Some accidents can be serious enough to require emergency medical treatment at a hospital before you can meet with the team at Centennial Spine and Pain.

If you develop whiplash after an accident, you may experience:

  • Neck pain
  • Neck stiffness
  • Dizziness
  • Frequent headaches
  • Cognitive difficulties

You can experience these symptoms immediately after the accident, but you can also develop them over time in the days and weeks after the event.

If you’re in any type of accident, you should schedule a diagnostic evaluation with the team at Centennial Spine and Pain. They offer on-site diagnostic testing services to give you an accurate diagnosis and provide customized treatment plans to help you recover from accident injuries.

How are accident injuries treated?

If you have whiplash, the team at Centennial Spine and Pain may initially recommend reducing your activities so you can rest. You may also benefit from heat or cold therapy to relieve pain and stiffness in your neck.

Oral medications or injectable therapies can help relax your muscles so you can engage in exercises at home and in physical therapy sessions.

If you have other injures from an accident that are more serious, Centennial Spine and Pain offers nonsurgical services to treat pain, such as:

  • Nerve blocks
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Facet joint injections
  • Trigger point injections
  • Epidural steroid injections

When these treatments aren’t enough to address your pain, you may need surgery to repair spine damage or to implant a spinal cord stimulation device.
