Injuries sustained from car accidents are most commonly related to the spine. These injuries can also result in long-lasting pain or suffering without medical intervention. There are several types of back, neck and spinal injuries that result from auto accidents.
Some of the most common car accident injuries can include:
Back, neck and spine injury symptoms don’t always occur immediately after an auto accident. Some individuals may experience immediate symptoms that include pain and swelling, but others may not experience any symptoms until days or weeks after an incident.*
The key to detecting the extent of an injury is early diagnosis. After experiencing any injury, it’s good to see your primary care doctor. From there, your physician may recommend that you see a neck, back or spine specialist to determine the severity of your injury. If you come to the NY Spine Institute, our spine doctors can perform a physical analysis and determine your need for treatment.*
Not every car accident victim will have the same treatment method. Some may only need to incorporate physical therapy to combat tightness in the spine. Others, however, may need several months of intensive training and surgeries to start walking again. We will try to exhaust all possible non-surgical options before offering spinal surgery as an option.*
We offer noninvasive treatments you can use at our facility, such as:
There are also several types of spinal surgeries that can be offered through New York Spine Institute if you are severely injured in an accident. No matter what type of injury you have sustained in your car accident, you can count on our medical staff to give you the knowledge and skills to help you recover from your injury one day at a time.*
*The effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment will vary by patient and condition. New York Spine Institute does not guarantee certain results.
