Auto Accident Q & A

What are common auto accident injuries?

Car accidents are common and lead to many types of injuries. Common injuries resulting from auto accidents include:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Whiplash
  • Bumps, bruises, and scrapes
  • Head injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries

In many cases, these injuries are apparent at the scene of the accident, and emergency medical care may be provided. 

However, for less serious auto accidents, the injuries may not be so obvious, and you may not start to experience symptoms until several hours or even days after your accident. 

When should I seek medical care for my auto accident?

You should seek medical care for your auto accident as soon as you start feeling symptoms, whether it’s at the scene of the crash or the next day. The earlier you start care, the faster you’ll recover.

For nonemergency auto accident injuries, the experienced team at Elite Medical Center can provide the care you need. 

What can I expect during my auto accident evaluation?

The health care experts at Elite Medical Center specialize in the management of auto accidents and conduct thorough evaluations when you come in for treatment. During your initial evaluation, the team reviews the details of your accident, your symptoms, and your medical history. 

The team then conducts a physical exam, paying special attention to the areas of your body where you feel pain. Elite Medical Center is a full-service facility and offers on-site X-rays and ultrasounds. Your provider may request these diagnostic tests to confirm or rule out a suspected diagnosis, which helps determine the course of treatment. 

How are auto accident injuries treated?

Your provider at Elite Medical Center develops individualized treatment plans for auto accidents based on the type of injury you have, the severity of your injury, and your medical history. Your treatment plan may include:

  • Activity modification
  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic care
  • Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication

The team has you return to the office for regular follow-ups to monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed. If your injury fails to improve with conservative treatments, the team at Elite Medical Center may suggest regenerative medicine to support the healing process.
