Experts estimate that approximately 7,000 people suffer car accident injuries every day. These injuries can range from minor cuts and bruises to severe concussions, bone breaks, and whiplash.
Without proper treatment immediately after your accident, it can take months — even years — for your body to recover from serious automobile accident injuries.
An automobile accident can impact any part of your body, but the most common injuries include:
Even minor injuries, like cuts and bruises, should be looked at by a medical professional immediately after an accident to ensure your body recovers properly.
If you’re struggling with chronic pain from a motor vehicle accident injury, Rise2Health offers a number of cutting-edge treatments depending on the severity of your injury. Your motor vehicle accident recovery plan may include:
Prolotherapy is a non-surgical treatment to repair damaged tendons and ligaments and relieve joint pain. These injections strengthen injured joints and connective tissue by triggering your body’s natural healing response. The injections essentially trick your body into creating new tissue and repairing damage at the injury site.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses your body’s blood platelets to accelerate healing and repair damaged tissues, muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments. First, Dr. David draws your blood and runs it through a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. Then, he injects the concentrated plasma directly into the injury site. Like prolotherapy, PRP therapy stimulates your body’s natural healing response to decrease inflammation and repair damage.
Dr. David recommends Biofreeze® and Spire® CBD products to alleviate chronic pain and reduce muscle tension caused by motor vehicle accident injuries. CBD oils and cream are especially effective at treating muscle pain, including neck, back, and shoulder pain.
Non-surgical treatments, such as physical therapy and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications, can help relieve pain and improve mobility if you’ve suffered a serious auto injury.
