Auto Injuries Q&A

What are common auto injuries?

Auto accidents can cause a wide variety of injuries, including some that affect you for the rest of your life. The trauma you experience during an auto accident can range from mild to debilitating and affect many parts of your body, including your musculoskeletal system, your nerves, your spine, and your brain.

The team at Atlas Health Center provides comprehensive care for all types of auto injuries, including those that affect your:

  • Neck
  • Back
  • Knees
  • Shoulders
  • Spine

The team also specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of whiplash, a condition that affects your cervical (neck) spine as a result of the forceful back-and-forth movements of your head. These movements can strain or tear the soft tissues of your neck and cause persistent pain and a loss of your neck flexibility.

When should I seek treatment for auto injuries?

If you’re in an auto accident, it’s always best to seek a medical evaluation immediately after the event. While you might not experience pain or mobility issues at the time of the accident, you may have underlying injuries that cause severe pain and disability in the days after.

Atlas Health Center offers on-site X-rays to better understand your injuries. They also perform a physical exam to test your muscle strength and flexibility, your range of motion, and your coordination.

Based on the results of your testing, the team customizes a care plan to address pain and help you recover fully from your injuries.

What treatments are available for auto injuries?

Atlas Health Center offers a variety of nonsurgical, holistic treatments that focus on quickly relieving pain and improving your overall wellness. Depending on the nature of your injuries, you might benefit from:

  • Acupuncture
  • Chiropractic care
  • Massage therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Iovera® cold therapy

The team carefully monitors your progress with treatment. If you need medications to control your pain and inflammation, they can provide medication management services that ensure you’re taking the right medications at the right dosages.

They also work with your attorney, providing documentation of your treatment if you’re pursuing legal action.
