Personal Injuries Q & A

What is a personal injury?

Personal injury is a legal term that refers to harm to your body, mind, or emotions. If you’ve been hurt in a car crash or other type of accident that another person is responsible for, you might consider filing a personal injury claim.

Common accidents that cause personal injuries include:

  • Automobile collisions
  • Workplace accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Dog bites

You may be entitled to compensation from the person, agency, or business responsible for the accident. However, timely treatment and proper documentation from a well-established physician is critical.

The medical professionals at CHOICE Pain & Rehabilitation Center have extensive experience handling personal injuries and are committed to making the process as easy for you as possible.

What medical conditions can a personal injury accident cause?

Whiplash is the most common injury to result from an auto accident, especially if the crash involves a rear-end collision. Symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Upper back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness

Aside from whiplash, there are many other injuries that may result from a car crash or other type of accident. Common personal injuries include:

  • Concussions
  • Spinal injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear

Without prompt treatment, these conditions often grow progressively worse. That’s why it’s so important to visit CHOICE Pain & Rehabilitation Center as soon as possible. Their expert team evaluates your condition and delivers timely treatment.

What should I do if I have a personal injury?

If you’ve suffered a personal injury and don’t need to go to the emergency room, the first thing you should do is schedule an appointment at CHOICE Pain & Rehabilitation Center. Car accidents and other personal injuries require careful attention for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

After they perform a physical exam and review your medical history, your physician at CHOICE Pain & Rehabilitation Center provides a specific diagnosis for your condition. Then, they develop a personalized treatment plan that includes multidisciplinary approaches to pain management such as:

  • Facet block injections
  • Epidural nerve blocks
  • Acupuncture or massage
  • Physical therapy

They may also prescribe medications for continued relief after the effects of your pain injections wear off.
