Symptoms of Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries
After an accident, survivors may experience the following symptoms:

No two car accidents are identical and survivors experience a diverse range of symptoms and injuries. Some survivors don’t experience immediate symptoms and choose to avoid or delay medical intervention. However, some injuries are not easily visible and require medical exams to identify. An evaluation from an experienced health professional will identify hidden injuries and help survivors prevent long-term health issues caused by untreated injuries.
Survivors of motor vehicle accidents often experience chronic pain as a result of their injuries. At Premier Urgent Care, patients can experience lasting pain relief and begin their recovery after treatment with injections and pain management techniques.
A few types of joint and soft tissue injections offered at the clinic include nerve blocks, epidural injections, piriformis injections, sacroiliac joint injections, and trigger point injections.

Pain management techniques can help patients minimize pain through cold and heat therapy, gentle exercise, physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, cognitive behavior therapy, yoga, deep breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation, biofeedback, music therapy, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication.
