The trauma of an auto accident can have serious repercussions for the health of the spine. For some auto accident sufferers, a crash can result in injuries to the spinal discs—the cushions between the bones of the spine. When a disc bulge occurs, trauma causes the soft, inner portion of the disc to bulge out of its protective covering. The result is pressure on the nerves that causes pain. A disc injury in which this soft material moves more significantly back toward the spinal cord is considered a disc herniation.
The Auto Accident Injury Program at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation offers the following treatments for pain management and rehabilitation after an auto accident:
The Medical Director at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation is a pain management specialist with a focus on helping patients get out of pain and get moving again with the least invasive treatments possible. With this goal in mind, our doctor works closely with a team of Physical Therapists, Acupuncturists, and Chiropractic Doctors to help patients heal while placing as little stress on the body as possible.
The result of this type of care is effective pain management in a cooperative, highly skilled environment where patients can find every type of care they require under one roof. For disc injures after an auto accident, the focus is on relieving pain while addressing and fixing the cause of pain—the herniated or bulged disc—without surgery.
