What kind of doctor do you see after a car accident or for injuries?

While any doctor can help treat, or refer, a car accident or work injury victim, a doctor specializing in pain management and medicine can be the best option. Regardless of the severity, a prompt initial medical evaluation by a medical professional is important for assessing your overall health and well-being. Given how common car accidents are, pain doctors are experienced to look for certain injuries. Discovery and assessment of any injuries allows for early treatment, which help you feel better faster and lower your risk of long-term complications.

What is initial evaluation for accidents and injuries?

When a patient comes in after an accident or injury, the most important part of the evaluation is the physical evaluation. Auto injury doctors are trained to identify common ailments and injuries and assessing your overall health and well-being.

Pain is often the main indicator of an injury after an accident, but not all injuries create immediate pain. The body’s natural defense system typically works to mask any pain during a shock, or an intense event like a car accident. Sometimes the patient doesn’t begin feeling pain until a few days after the incident, which is why a prompt medical evaluation can help spot and treat the injury early. 

Another reason to seek medical care immediately after a traffic accident is for professional documentation of your injuries. In many cases, this ends up being helpful for insurance or legal purposes. The more time that passes after your accident before you seek medical attention, the more this complicates any future proceedings. 

What are common car accident injuries?
Car accident injuries vary in type and intensity and many people experience multiple injuries at once. Some of the most common conditions that result from car crashes include:

  • Broken bones, such as ribs, arms, legs, and hips
  • Head injuries, such as a concussion, bleeding, or skull fracture
  • Internal bleeding
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Whiplash
  • Herniated discs
  • Knee trauma
What can patients expect after the initial medical evaluation?

Nearly all MVC patients experience some degree of pain from muscle strain and spasm, particularly in the neck, shoulders, and lower back. This typically happens because the patient, in anticipating the crash, braces and holds tension in their core stabilization muscles, which then sustain a rapid and significant force as they absorb the impact. The pain from this type of injury does not typically start immediately after the incident. 

Patients often come to the doctor’s office after a car accident or work injury with minimal pain, or mild soreness, and then developing increasing pain over the following 72 hours. Muscle pain typically lasts the first 24 to 72 hours, but can also last up to 3 weeks, depending on the patient’s condition. 

This is of course is temporary and treatable. Your pain management physician will evaluate the injuries and provide a customized pain treatment plan.
