Monmouth County Auto Accident Injury Program for Numbness and Tingling

Auto accident injuries can lead to compression and irritation of the nerves. Herniated discs are often caused by the trauma of an auto accident and can result in altered sensation.

Numbness and tingling after an auto accident are warning signs that some kind from an injury has occurred. Treatment for numbness and or tingling centers on pain management and rehabilitation for the condition that is leading or causing you to have symptoms.

Our Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation office has an Auto Accident Injury Program which was created to help patients rehabilitate while causing the body the least amount of stress as possible.

Our Auto Accident Injury Program incorporated medical treatment and physical therapy. Our office also offers chiropractic, acupuncture and massage in Red Bank for Auto Accident patients. We are also prepared to help patients coordinate legal and insurance issues.

For auto accident patients experiencing numbness or tingling, the first step is a full medical evaluation and diagnosis to determine the cause of the symptoms. In addition to traditional x-ray, ultrasound, and fluoroscopy, our office also incorporates Electrodiagnostic Nerve Testing. This process helps our Medical Director to identify the exact cause of numbness/tingling so that the treatment process can begin.

Auto Accident Injury Program for Numbness/Tingling

Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation offers the following treatment options for treatments that can help with numbness or tingling after an auto accident.

Physical Therapy for Auto Accident Injuries

Physical Therapy for Auto Accident Injury is used to help reduce pain and other symptoms such as numbness or tingling while restoring mobility and function. Therapeutic exercise is a safe and effective method of increasing flexibility and strength and can be used during a Physical Therapy treatment for Auto Accident patients.

Physical Therapy has the effect of both reducing pain and preventing future injury. Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation uses technologies like power plate full body vibration to increase the effectiveness of therapeutic exercise.

Spinal Decompression Traction

Spinal Decompression is another technique that may be used for Auto Accident injuries and patients suffering from numbness or tingling in Red Bank. The practice of Spinal Decompression reduces pressure on the nerves by gently separating the bones of the spine.

Passive Physical Therapy (non-exercise)

Passive Physical Therapy may include low level laser therapy like our K-laser therapy technology which speeds up to the healing process and prevents the formation of scar tissue. Also, passive physical therapy can include ultrasound technology which reduces pain and muscle spasms, electrotherapy and ice and heat therapies.

Numbness, Tingling and Acupuncture

Many of the conditions that lead to numbness or tingling can also cause pain. Acupuncture is a drug-free, healthy method of managing pain. It can also address symptoms such as numbness or tingling by rebalancing the body’s systems.

Chinese medicine believes that a life energy known as ‘Qi’ flows throughout the body. When any disorder in the flow of Qi occurs, a number of symptoms can result (including pain, numbness, and tingling). By stimulating certain points on the body, acupuncture restores the body’s natural harmony for a reduction in symptoms. Because it is also effective in relieving stress, acupuncture is an excellent option for patients who have recently experienced an auto accident.

Chiropractic Care for Numbness and Tingling

The central nervous system is responsible for all functions of the body including sensation. The system is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and the nerves. When the spine is misaligned due to trauma caused by a car accident, the nerves become irritated and compressed which leads to numbness and tingling. A chiropractic adjustment can alleviate these symptoms and ensure that the spine is healthy and increase the health of the nervous system.

Steroid Injections for Numbness & Tingling for Auto Accidents

Our Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation medical director is dedicated to using the most conservative and least invasive treatment options available for auto accident injuries. Our Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation office works to help patients rehabilitate and relive pain while causing the body the least amount of stress.

Symptoms such as numbness or pain may make it impossible for patients to use physical therapy or other rehabilitation options. When this occurs, the injection of a long lasting steroid can reduce inflammation and relieve pressure on the nerves. In many cases, this injection is combined with an anesthetic numbing agent to produce immediate results.
