Auto & Work Injuries Q&A
What types of auto and work accidents require care?
Any type of auto accident — even collisions under 20 mph — can cause whiplash and other pain conditions and should be evaluated as soon as possible. Work injuries, including cuts, scrapes, bruises, joint pain, and soft tissue injuries, should be evaluated as well.
In many cases, auto and work accidents can cause long-term, chronic pain and possibly disability. The sooner you seek care at Kinexis Healthcare, the sooner you can begin your recovery and reduce the risk of long-term pain and dysfunction.
When should I seek care after an auto or work accident?
After any kind of auto or work accident, you should seek treatment at Kinexis Healthcare immediately. Not only does immediate medical attention provide the necessary care to begin your recovery, but it also provides an opportunity to document and examine the extent of your injuries.
Documentation is important for your health or auto insurance or if you choose to work with an attorney after your accident. The sooner your accident and injuries are documented and you begin receiving treatment, the sooner your insurance or attorney can begin your case for the purposes of financial coverage. This may help reduce your out-of-pocket cost for care.
How are auto and work accidents diagnosed?
The Kinexis Healthcare team performs thorough consultations and exams to determine the extent and severity of your injuries. As musculoskeletal health experts, they can examine all muscles and joints in your body and provide screenings for concussions and other more serious injuries.
Your evaluation may also include referrals for imaging, such as X-rays or an MRI, or additional testing, such as nerve conduction studies or further concussions exams. The team has your best interests in mind and provides an accurate diagnosis in order to determine which types of treatment are most beneficial to your recovery.
How are auto and work accidents treated?
