Auto Injury Treatment Center
Car accidents cause many different injuries, ranging from scrapes and bruises to whiplash, a neck injury. Whiplash is caused when the neck is suddenly pushed forward and backward during a crash, and it can result in pain in the neck, dizziness, and a loss of range of motion. Auto Injury Treatment Center is important to see a doctor right away if you have these symptoms, because left untreated, they can get worse over time. The longer you wait, the more difficult it is to treat your auto accident injury.
How do you manage accidents?
The forces of a car crash can cause a variety of soft tissue injuries, including sprains and strains, herniated discs, and whiplash. Depending on the severity of the accident, these injuries can be immediate or may not appear for hours or even days after the collision. The ER checks only three things: are you alive, are there any broken bones, and is there any internal bleeding. The rest of the medical treatment should be done by a doctor who has specialized training and experience with auto injury treatment.
At CitiMed, New York City’s leading personal injury doctors have a wide range of experience treating car accident injuries. These include sprains and strains in the wrists (from impact with the steering wheel or stick shift), shoulder injuries, abrasions to the knees, and herniated discs in the neck and back. We use chiropractic manipulation and traction therapy to reduce spinal pressure on the disks, relieve pain, improve range of motion, and encourage healing. We also design a rehabilitation program to help you strengthen the muscles that support your spine and increase your flexibility.
