Pain Management OKC Shares Common Car Accident Injuries And Treatments: Part 2

Pain Management OKC Getting You On The Road To Recovery

In part one of this blog series, our pain management OKC team shared some statistics (published by the Department of Public Safety) about the overwhelming number of car accidents and injuries that occurred in Oklahoma during 2015 (the last reported year so far). The results indicated that over 44,000 people were (and probably still are) in need of car accident care! We also shared the most common car accident injuries and some treatment options for car accident care.

Today, our pain management OKC team would like to talk about 2 more of the most common injuries.

  • Brain Trauma: Second to whiplash, a concussion is a very popular car accident injury. The sudden blow to the the head or intense shaking of the head or upper body can leave a person with a plethora of problems. The dizziness, fatigue, memory loss, nausea, vomiting, and delayed response are all symptoms of a concussion. Other brain injuries may occur, also which can cause ongoing migraines or chronic pain.
  • Spinal Damage: The most common spinal injuries usually involve fractured, dislocated, or crushed vertebrae. Injury to the spine after a car accident can lead to multiple problems, too. For example, a damaged spinal cord can lead to a person’s inability to control bladder or bowel movements, problems moving limbs, difficulty breathing, and loss of sensations.

These two common car accident injuries require that patients seek medical attention as soon as possible. The longer one waits, the worse ongoing pain may become. If you have been in accident, our pain management OKC team encourages you to seek out car accident care quickly!

Most patients have found relief with a personalized pain management OKC treatment plan. The most common treatment is a series of injections to the appropriate location which will allow the surrounding muscles and tissue to be relieved of pain. Within weeks after receiving car accident care, most patients notice a difference and are on the road to recovery.

If injections alone aren’t enough to get you back to feeling great there may be some additional steps our pain management OKC specialist will suggest as Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers offers chiropractic therapies, acupuncture, massage therapy and psychological counseling.

Pain Management OKC Getting You On The Road To Recovery

The most up-to-date statistics on car crashes reported by the Department of Public Safety shows that in Oklahoma over 53,000 accidents occurred in 2015. Imagine how long it must have taken to gather this data and exactly how many people didn’t document their case! Furthermore, over 8,100 documented accidents resulted in fatalities while the remaining portion were separated into various levels of injuries. That’s over 44,000 people in our state alone that were (and probably still are) in need of car accident care! Our pain management OKC team can only imagine as more drivers enter the roadway that these numbers won’t decrease.

With that being said, today we are here to discuss a few of the most common car accident injuries and car accident care treatments that our pain management OKC team can provide to you.

  • Whiplash: The most popular and well-known car accident injury is whiplash. This strain on the neck is most common due to rear end collisions and the impact is usually strong enough that it forces the driver’s head to be pushed backward and forward rapidly. Muscles and ligaments being extended beyond their average range of motion causes a lot of neck pain, headaches, stiffness, fatigue, dizziness, and often the injured person has a reduced range of motion.
  • Chest Pain: Injury to the chest can be the result of being pushed forcefully into the seatbelt strap. It can also be a result of being thrown into the steering wheel or dashboard. The outside injuries often heal much sooner than those unseen on the inside. Everything from broken bones to damaged nerves can cause chronic pain.

Pain Management OKC: Helping Patients Find Relief

Getting into a car accident can wreak havoc on a person’s emotional state of mind causing a heavy burden and stress, but it also has the potential to cause some serious physical pain. Numerous injuries, such as head trauma, or internal ruptures will undoubtedly require that people pay a visit to the emergency room. Once the apparent injuries are addressed it’s important to gage your pain elsewhere. Even the most minor car accidents can cause soft tissue injuries that can lead to arthritis if left untreated. Many times, the pain doesn’t start flaring up until weeks or months after the accident. If you are in need of car accident care, our pain management OKC specialist would be happy to assess your situation.

After you’ve been in a car accident it’s possible for one’s mobility to be hampered in certain areas of the body, even if there isn’t any noticeable pain right away. Sometimes, pain in one area of the body is actually caused by pressure applied to another part of the body and it can be difficult for patients to pinpoint the exact trouble spot. Our pain management OKC team is well versed in car accident care and at detecting hidden injuries by utilizing x-ray guidance.

We’ll seek to find out if you have serious joint pain, a disc herniation, or if nerves may be pinched. When the scope of your injuries is revealed a personalized post car accident care plan will be developed for you.

Often times through a series of injections to the appropriate location, the surrounding muscles and tissue will also be relieved of pain, allowing you to feel a reduction in inflammation and swelling. Within weeks after receiving car accident care, many patients start to see full mobility again and be pain free. If injections alone aren’t enough to get you back to feeling great there may be some additional steps our pain management OKC specialist will suggest as Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers offers chiropractic therapies, acupuncture, massage therapy and psychological counseling.
