Auto Injuries Q&A
What are auto injuries?
Auto injuries occur from traffic collisions. They can damage hard tissues like bones and joints, or soft tissues, including your muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Auto injuries are common but require prompt intervention. Without treatment, they can get worse over time. Meeting with Dr. Ebadat is an easy and effective way to limit inflammation and encourage your body’s natural healing process.
What are some common auto injuries?
At South Bay Wellness Center, Dr. Ebadat treats various auto injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Sprains and strains
- Dislocated joints
- Stiff muscles
Dr. Ebadat also treats whiplash –– a common auto injury that occurs when your head snaps back and forth rapidly. This sudden movement can trigger headaches, muscle stiffness, and neck pain.
How are auto injuries diagnosed?
To diagnose auto injuries, Dr. Ebadat conducts a comprehensive in-office exam. During your appointment, he reviews your medical history, asks about your symptoms and lifestyle, and performs a physical exam. If these measures don’t provide enough information to make a diagnosis, Dr. Ebadat might also order digital X-rays or an MRI.
Diagnostic imaging techniques like X-rays and MRI create detailed pictures of your hard and soft tissues and help Dr. Ebadat diagnose fractures, dislocated joints, muscle strains, ligament tears, and more.
How are auto injuries treated?
Care for auto injuries depends on the severity of your symptoms and their effect on your quality of life. Whenever possible, Dr. Ebadat recommends conservative, holistic treatments to manage auto injuries, including:
- Cold laser therapy
- Anodyne® infrared light therapy
- Spinal decompression therapy
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Rebuilder Therapy for nerve oxygenation
- Kinesio taping
Ultimately, the goal of treatment is to ease pain, improve mobility, and promote healing. Recovering from an auto injury is a time-intensive process. To achieve the best possible results, attend all of your follow-up appointments, and follow Dr. Ebadat’s instructions carefully.
How much does it cost to treat auto injuries?
The cost of auto injury treatment depends on several factors, including its severity, its effects on your quality of life, and your insurance. Dr. Ebadat accepts several forms of payment, including attorney’s liens and direct insurance payouts. If needed, he can also set up a custom payment plan.
