Auto Injury Treatment Q&A

What types of auto injuries can Coastal Healthcare Partners treat?

Automobile accidents can cause almost any type of injury. However, some of the most common injuries patients sustain in auto accidents include:

  • Whiplash
  • Herniated discs
  • Tendon or ligament injuries
  • Minor lacerations - (this would be treated by a Nurse Practitioner)

Many patients have more than one injury that needs treatment. Fortunately, Dr. Osborne can treat all of these injuries with chiropractic care and other minimally-invasive treatment options.

How does Dr. Osborne diagnose these injuries?

To identify all of the injuries you sustained during an automobile accident, Dr. Osborne will begin by reviewing any medical records generated by the hospital, EMTs, or any other professional who examined you after the crash. He’ll also perform his own physical exam to identify any injuries other doctors may have missed.

What treatments are effective for patients with auto injuries?

Depending on the nature of your injuries, you may benefit from several different treatments available at Coastal Healthcare Partners. Some of the treatments that may help you include:

  • Rehabilitation - Rehabilitative services, such as physical therapy, can speed up your recovery and strengthen the injured part of your body.
  • Chiropractic adjustments - Chiropractic adjustments resolve issues with alignment that may be making your symptoms worse. This service is especially helpful to patients with joint injuries, whiplash, and herniated discs.
  • Joint injections - If you have a joint injury, joint injections may reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
  • Trigger point injections - Dr. Osborne may recommend trigger point injections to block pain in specific locations.

How does Dr. Osborne decide which treatments to recommend?

Every injured patient is different, and Dr. Osborne always customizes his treatment recommendations to meet the needs of the patient. He’ll determine which treatments are best for you based on your current condition, treatment goals, and other characteristics. He’ll also explain any risks associated with the therapies he recommends before you begin treatment.
