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.

Treatment Options

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. Patients should speak to their physician to find out if they are a good candidate for joint and soft tissue 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. Depending on the location and type of pain, patients will receive a customized pain management plan.

Advanced Treatment

Severe injuries, such as broken bones, brain damage, and internal bleeding may require advanced treatment that may include chiropractic adjustment, physical therapy, and even surgery. Premier Urgent Care supports patients needing a range of treatments. Staff is available to answer any questions about obtaining advanced treatment.
