Auto Injuries & Workmans Comp Q & A

What are auto injuries and workman's comp injuries?

Automobile accidents and injuries in the workplace are common occurrences, many of which require treatment to accelerate healing and alleviate pain. Common auto and work-related injuries include:

  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Nerve pain
  • Herniated bulging discs
  • Fractures
  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Tendonitis
  • Knee injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Joint pain
  • Head injuries

You might get injured at work lifting something heavy, falling down, or completing repetitive movements over time. Treatment at Gramercy Pain Center can offer you relief. Schedule an evaluation at the first sign of severe or long-lasting pain. 

What should I expect during appointments for auto injuries and workman’s comp injuries?

During appointments at Gramercy Pain Center, your provider reviews your medical history, asks about your symptoms, and completes a physical examination. They take special care to evaluate painful or injured areas. Your pain specialist validates your injury for insurance or workman's compensation purposes.

They might recommend you undergo blood tests, X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, or other imaging procedures to diagnose the type and severity of an injury. Your provider may suggest discography, which uses imaging guidance to inject contrast material into spinal discs to identify the cause of back pain.

What are auto injury and workman's comp treatments?

Your Gramercy Pain Center specialist personalizes each treatment for auto injuries and workman's compensation accidents. They might recommend the following:

Physical therapy

Gramercy Pain Center specialists offer in-office physical therapy and at-home exercise guidance to accelerate healing after auto or workman’s compensation injuries.

Medications

Taking certain medications can reduce inflammation and alleviate pain associated with common injuries.

Injections

Your pain specialist offers epidural steroid injections, nerve root blocks, trigger point injections, facet joint injections, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to optimize healing and reduce inflammation and pain. They also provide Botox® injections to treat cervical dystonia (involuntarily neck muscle contractions).

Minimally invasive procedures

In the case of a severe injury or other pain management solutions that haven’t worked, your specialist might suggest a minimally invasive procedure. Examples include disc decompression, the Vertiflex™ Procedure, spinal cord stimulation, and peripheral nerve stimulation. 

Other options include radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation, vertebroplasty/kyphoplasty, and intrathecal pain pump implants.
