Personal Injury Q&A

What is a personal injury?

Personal injuries can result from a variety of unexpected events, including slips and falls.

Soft tissue injuries
A slip-and-fall event can cause injuries in your muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissues. You may not notice any issues in the hours after the incident, but over time, your pain may increase while your mobility decreases.

Spinal cord injuries
Your spinal cord can take on the impact of a slip and fall, which can lead to compression of your spine nerves. In more severe cases, a slip or fall can sever your spinal cord. You can also be at risk for partial or full paralysis depending on the severity of your injury and its location in your spine.

Head injuries
Head injuries can be serious. If you slip and fall, especially on a hard surface and hit your head, it can lead to concussions or a traumatic brain injury.

Fractures from a slip and fall can range from minor to severe breaks in the bone. You can also damage the tissue surrounding the bone and increase your risk for infection.

When should I seek treatment for a personal injury?

When you experience a personal injury like a slip and fall, it’s wise to get a diagnostic evaluation from the team at Centennial Spine and Pain. If you don’t treat personal injuries properly, your risk for chronic pain increases. You may also be more likely to experience recurrent injuries if your soft tissues and bone don’t heal correctly.

When you have a head injury, even if it seems mild, it’s important that you seek medical attention right away to rule out potentially life-threatening complications.

The medical team offers on-site diagnostic imaging technologies and comprehensive physical exams to identify damage to your spine, soft tissues, and bone. They also customize care plans to relieve your pain and promote healing.

What treatments are available for a personal injury?

The team at Centennial Spine and Pain offers a variety of advanced treatment options to help manage your pain and treat its underlying cause.

Depending on the type of injury you have, you may benefit from treatments like:

  • Nerve blocks
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Facet joint injections
  • Transforaminal epidural steroid injections
  • Sacroiliac joint steroid injections
  • Spinal cord stimulator

The team can also recommend physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, and other strategies that support your full recovery from a personal injury.
