Car Accident Injuries Q&A

What are some common car accident injuries?

Being involved in a car accident can be incredibly stressful and can lead to a number of different injuries. Some are immediately apparent, such as lacerations and broken bones. Others, however, aren’t always easy to detect. 

Some examples of car accident injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Joint damage
  • Muscle tears
  • Ligament and tendon damage
  • Traumatic brain injury, including concussion
  • Nerve damage

Working with a team of highly skilled medical professionals is important in the aftermath of a car accident. 

How are car accident injuries diagnosed?

When you arrive at Injury and Health Urgent Care for a diagnostic workup, the first step is a discussion of your symptoms and the circumstances that led to the injuries. Next, your practitioner determines which diagnostic tools offer the best fit for your needs. 

State-of-the-art X-ray technology provides a visual representation of your bone tissue. X-rays help your practitioner quickly check for broken bones and other damage. The process is fast, safe, and simple, and your digital imaging is viewable immediately. 

An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a diagnostic tool that uses electrodes to measure electrical activity within your brain. It’s a wonderful screening tool for head injuries, stroke, and sleep disorders. Having an EEG is painless and swift. 

Lab testing is also available, offering insight into how your organs and systems are currently functioning. In-house testing is convenient, and results come in quickly. 

When is the right time to come in for car accident injuries?

In the aftermath of a car accident, far too many people wait until their pain is unbearable before seeking medical attention. This approach not only forces you to endure discomfort, but it can also allow injuries to worsen and become more complex to treat. 

If you or a loved one is injured in an auto accident, coming in for an assessment is important. Don’t wait until symptoms develop to seek out care. The team at Injury and Health Urgent Care can determine if you have car accident injuries and shape your treatment path.
