How can medical care help with my personal injury?
Injuries like back pain, extremity pain, and wounds all require prompt attention. Your doctor determines the extent of your injuries and puts you on a path toward relief. They can also perform in-depth diagnostic assessments to look for less obvious injuries that can cause significant problems down the road.
When you’re involved in an accident or experience a traumatic or sports injury, your body releases powerful stress hormones to help you get through the experience. These hormones can mask many symptoms and often dampen your experience of pain signals.
You might feel fine in the immediate aftermath of an injury, only to experience severe symptoms in the days and weeks afterward. That’s why having a thorough diagnostic workup performed is the best course of action.
When the actions of others caused your injuries, seeking prompt medical care is an essential part of any future insurance or legal action you choose to take.
What can I do to prevent personal injuries?
While you can’t prevent all injuries, you can take steps to stay safer. If you participate in high-impact sports or fitness pursuits, wearing the proper protective equipment can go a long way toward reducing your risk of harm.
Maintaining optimal health is also important. When your body is strong and functioning properly, you have a higher degree of protection against many minor injuries like sprains, strains, and many forms of joint injuries.
Back pain and muscle aches are great examples of injuries you can avoid when you work with a health professional to enhance your overall health. However, there is little you can do to avoid things like car accidents or workplace injuries. The team at Injury and Health Institute can assist when the unexpected occurs.
