Personal Injuries Q & A
What are personal injuries?
Personal injuries are bodily damages that happen directly or indirectly because of someone else’s negligence. Just like other injuries, they can uproot your life and often involve long recoveries that prevent you from working or participating in activities you enjoy.
At Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers, the skilled team provides independent medical examinations for personal injuries to diagnose them. Personal injuries include injuries that happen:
- In the hospital
- In the workplace
- On the road
- During recreational activities, like boating or biking
While your independent medical examination doesn’t necessarily say who is responsible for your injury, it gives an honest report of the damages and the treatments needed to treat them. The report goes to your attorney.
What is considered a personal injury?
Personal injuries can take many forms and can involve damage anywhere in the body. The incident may have caused one or more musculoskeletal injuries that your providers at Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers can diagnose and treat with or without orthopaedic surgery.
After a comprehensive physical examination and possible imaging tests, like X-rays or a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, your providers can diagnose:
- Joint dislocations
- Cartilage damage
- Disc damage
Skin and brain injuries can also be present in a personal injury case but do not need orthopaedic care like the others listed. Instead, they may need other options like neurological care for a brain injury or reconstructive surgery for a traumatic skin injury.
Which are the treatments for personal injuries?
When you arrive for personal injury care, Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers creates an individualized care plan to treat your injury and provide rehabilitation. The goal of treatment is to get back to your typical normal activities as soon as possible.
A treatment plan might involve:
Procedures in the office
In-office procedures like ultrasound therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, or steroid injections can all help you recover from a personal injury.
Medications can reduce your pain and prevent infections after certain injuries.
Orthopaedic surgery isn’t usually the first line of treatment but can be beneficial for severe injuries or those that don’t respond well to conservative treatments. The surgeons at Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers specialize in minimally invasive, robotic, and open surgery techniques.
Physical therapy improves your strength and mobility after any type of orthopaedic injury.
