THE IMPORTANCE OF GETTING ORTHOPEDIC TREATMENT AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT

Have you or your loved one been injured in a car accident? Broken bones, torn muscles and ligaments, and other orthopedic injuries are very painful. You need to find the best orthopedic treatment in West Hempstead to help you rehabilitate post-accident. Perhaps you have a family physician or were treated at the emergency room after your accident. Your care should not end there. You need specialized treatment to care for these injuries. Additionally, without specialized treatment, you face a likelihood of developing debilitating diseases that could cause you a lifetime of pain.

Why Do I Need to See an Orthopedic Treatment After A Car Accident?

Car accidents cause serious medical issues, so seeking help for orthopedic therapy after a car accident is crucial if you have injuries.
  • A few of the injuries most commonly treated by an orthopedic specialist after a car wreck are as follows:
  • Broken hip (from crash impact)
  • Broken or fractured hands/fingers (from trying to protect the face)
  • Broken or fractured clavicle or ribs (from airbag deployment or seat restraint)
  • Shoulder impingements (from crash impact or seat restraint)
  • Torn MCL / Torn ACL (from the twisting motion during collision)
  • Disc herniation

Degenerative Diseases That Can Be Triggered by a Car Accident

Not only will our orthopedic professionals will treat your immediate injuries, but they will also be able to help you fend off degenerative diseases the can result from car accident injuries.
Once in a while, the underlying wounds are the start of a descending winding. In the event that you neglect to look for treatment, your body will presumably not completely recoup. The result of this can be degenerative diseases. These are diseases that begin with a twinge but worsen over time and can be totally debilitating.
Some degenerative diseases that orthopedic treatments can help avoid in an injured body are:
  • Arthritis: A disease that causes joint pain ranging from mild to excruciating.
  • Spinal stenosis: This occurs when the channel through the middle of your vertebrae narrows. It’s often the result of a traumatic injury. Once the channel becomes too narrow, it begins to affect your nervous system. It’s a dangerous condition and very painful as it progresses.
  • Sciatica: This condition is caused by a pinching of the sciatic nerve which runs from your lumbar back to both feet. The pain ranges from mild to throbbing, depending on the severity.
  • Hip bursitis: This is painful inflammation of the bursae, which are the “shocks” of your hips. Pain is often described as unbearable in advanced stages.
  • Infections (after fractures): When a bone is broken so that it pokes out the skin, there’s a risk of infection developing. If not treated promptly, these infections can cause additional complications.
  • Tendonitis: Tendons run throughout your body connecting bones to muscles. When the tendons become irritated or inflamed, it can range from discomfort to very painful depending on the individual case.
While an auto collision isn’t generally the reason for these infirmities, wounds can trigger them. From that point, your condition will keep on gradually decay. Looking for prompt consideration after your damage is the best counteractive action.

Very Good

Well Being office is great! I dragged a box of files at work and started having lot of back pain, i went to my regular Dr and he started doing x-trays and giving me drugs for the pain. Every day i was feeling worse and told a co-worker that i did not know what to do anymore because I keep going to my regular Doctor but he was not helping me, so she tells me i will give you a Chiropractors name that helped me b4 with my back pain just in case you want to go. i went to them and it was worth to go, with 4 visits i was able to go back to normal activities, i had my last visit yesterday and i hope to continue feeling as good.

Perfect

A friend of mine recommended me to this place and I'm so glad she did. I street parked and shuffled my way to this clinic but I'm out now strutting back to my car. I was impressed how Dr. Goldshteyn knew my left was tense and limited in mobility with just a touch. When I woke up this morning in a great deal of pain the first thing I told my husband was that my left side felt like a 2x4 was stapled along the spine. The doc has some magic hands! No I'm not getting a free soda with my meal, nor did they ask me to write a review, this is a legit recommendation! If you have back issues give this place a try!

Excellent

I have recently become a patient at Well-being Chiropractic, in a great deal of pain initially but now being treated by their doctors and I have been feeling much better. The multidisciplinary treatments of physical therapy, accupuncture and chiropractic medicine offered have improved my overall health. I feel cared about by the staff and individual treatment, time and patience given to me. The facility is pristine, inviting and comfortable. The office staff is helpful, friendly and organized. I highly recommend this facility and Dr Goldshteyn , she is kind, supportive, knowledgeable and professional.

Good

I'm 37 and when I first came to Dr. Goldshteyn I had a strange tingling sensation down my left arm and leg. I had trouble sleeping, sitting - anything that required me to be in the same position for longer than an hour. I expected to come for the occasional adjustment, and was taken aback when she recommended a treatment plan. But I'm glad I followed his plan. After 6 weeks the tingling sensation has nearly subsided and her recommendations have completely changed my life for the better.
