Pain Management Solutions for Victims of Vehicular Accidents
- Posted on: Jul 15 2019
Victims of a vehicular accident may deal with delayed pain and discomfort due from the impact of a crash. While some patients experience pain that has an early onset after the accident, others don’t experience pain until weeks later. This is why patients who have experienced a car accident in the Willowbrook, IL area need to be seen by a doctor as soon as possible for a full evaluation.
Pain management after a car accident
One of the most common needs for car accident victims is pain management. Colliding cars can result in a variety of problems, including various levels of whiplash. This can cause permanent pain for patients. Our staff at the Elborno Center has years of experience in evaluating individuals for unexpected changes and helping them cope with pain and discomfort for as long as patients need.
There are various pain management solutions available for patients who have been impacted by a vehicular accident. These may include:
- Nerve root blocks
- Steroid injections
- Transforaminal disc compression
- Prescription pain medication
Which treatment is right for me?
Once patients have had an evaluation completed with Dr. Ahmed Elborno, they will have the opportunity to discuss treatments. In most cases, it is best to address the problem at the source, instead of covering up the problem long-term with pharmaceuticals. Our team will determine the source of the issue and then discuss with patients the choices they have in terms of treatment. In rare cases, treatment may be long-term pharmaceuticals for pain management. However, we work hard to find ways to permanently address the consequences experienced from a car accident. With state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, our staff can offer patients insight into the cause of their discomfort and speak with them in regards to the treatment best suited for their unique needs.
