Diagnosis and treatment of back or neck pain caused by car accidents, slips and falls, employee injury on the job

Car accidents, slips and falls, work injuries, and many other ordinary events can cause a painful spinal injury.  It is estimated that 8 out of 10 people experience back pain at some point in their lives. Spinal pain (either back or neck) can affect other parts of the body and interfere with work duties and everyday life tasks. Often this spinal pain results from traumatic injury, either minor or major in nature.

Sometimes the injury seems minor and patients may find temporary relief from over-the-counter medications or household heating pads. However, often the injury worsens over time and those household remedies no longer work to relieve the pain.

When the back or neck pain becomes so severe as to prevent the injured person from living and working in a normal way, medical attention for the injury becomes necessary. Although it is always best to seek medical attention when first injured (if one is aware of the injury at the time), it is never too late to seek medical help for a painful spinal injury to the back or neck.

Our health care professionals can use such diagnostic instruments as x-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized axial tomography (CAT) scans, arthroscopy, bone scans, electroencephalograms (EEG), electromyograms (EMG), and nerve conduction velocity studies (NCV), we can determine the source of the injury.

AmeriMed can diagnose the nature and severity of the injury and recommend a course of treatment and physical therapy to help repair the injury, begin to heal your back or neck, help relieve your pain, and get you back to good health and productivity so that you can once again enjoy life.
