What are common auto accident injuries?
Auto accidents can cause a variety of painful injuries. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries; it results when your head moves forcefully back and forth during impact. This movement strains and possibly tears the muscles and ligaments in your neck.
Auto accidents are also responsible for long-term back pain, knee pain, and shoulder pain, which result from:
- Muscle strains
- Torn tendons
- Joint damage
- Ligament sprains
- Spinal cord injuries
If you have persistent pain from an auto accident, Dr. Mohiuddin and the team at Regenerative Pain & Spine can customize a care plan using evidence-based treatments to relieve your pain, improve your mobility, and reduce your risk for additional complications.
When should I seek treatment for auto accident injuries?
For some, the pain begins immediately after an auto accident. However, you may not notice mobility issues or pain until a few days after the event.
Schedule an evaluation with Dr. Mohiuddin and the Regenerative Pain & Spine team if you have pain following your accident that you can’t successfully treat at home. You should also request an appointment if your pain or other symptoms worsen even with treatment.
What treatments are available for auto accident injuries?
The treatment plans available at Regenerative Pain & Spine focus on evidence-based solutions for long-lasting pain relief.
During your appointment, Dr. Mohiuddin takes time to evaluate your range of motion, flexibility, and the severity of your pain. He recommends treatments based on the type of injury you have and its impact on your quality of life.
Pain relief options for treating auto accident injuries include:
- Physical therapy
- Epidural injections
- Shock wave therapy
- Spinal cord stimulation
You may also be a candidate for regenerative medicine therapies using stem cells, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and amniotic tissue. Regenerative medicine uses the power of your body’s ability to heal itself from the inside out.
Injections of PRP or stem cells into the area of injury stimulate your body to produce new cells to replace those that are damaged and speed up the healing process.
By addressing the underlying damage that’s causing your pain, Dr. Mohiuddin and the Regenerative Pain & Spine team can help you achieve long-term pain relief while improving your overall health and mobility.
