Whether the accident was your fault or the other guy’s, the important thing now is for you to focus on your health and well-being. Sometimes, pain and stiffness develop a few days after an auto accident. We don’t recommend that you “wait and see” what happens. Take advantage of car accident treatment in Dallas immediately, so Dr. Z can help reduce and eliminate your pain or discomfort.
Coping with Pain After a Car Accident
There are several types of injuries that can leave you with lingering symptoms long after a car accident has happened. These include:
- Lower back injuries
- Spine injuries
- Head and neck injuries
- Whiplash injuries
Symptomatic Treatment of Car Accident Injuries
Immediately after an auto accident, there are home remedies that can be very helpful. For injuries involving muscle strain in the neck or lower back, ice and heat are recommended. You may also be given a brace to immobilize the neck in order to rest the muscles for several days. However, extended wearing of a brace for more than one or two weeks is not recommended; muscles need to move in order to heal properly. Muscle strain is far more common than a muscle tear, and strains usually heal in a relatively short period of time.
Acetaminophen (Tylenol) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory pain relievers such as Advil or Aleve can help relieve more significant discomfort. If a stronger pain medication is required, Dr. Z can work with your primary care physician to make sure your pain is controlled.
