Alternative to Back Surgery Keeps You Moving in Munster

Pain is a disruption to daily life that can lead to stress, anxiety, insomnia and more. Back pain can be even more intrusive as it can impact how you move, work and play your favorite sport. If you have had a recent injury or been in an auto accident, you now may be experiencing back pain for the first time in your life that does not go away and may become chronic. Our team at Pain Control Associates continues to explore ways to help patients deal with and ease pain that has interrupted their lives no matter what the source or cause. 

Alternative to Back Surgery After an Accident or Injury in Munster

An auto accident can prompt issues that need to be addressed immediately. The force of being suddenly stopped during a car wreck can cause back pain or neck pain, known as whiplash. Your body is not meant to be thrashed around in such a manner, and this type of incident can cause long-term effects to your body and chronic pain. You may experience a variety of symptoms after an accident that need to be addressed including dizziness, blurred vision, neck pain or stiffness, headaches, fatigue, irritability and more. Our team can work with you to determine what has happened to your body after an accident and put together a treatment plan. We may recommend nerve blocks, behavioral management to help you manage pain, physical therapy and medication management.

An injury at your workplace should also be reviewed and addressed as soon as possible to determine the extent of the injury and put a treatment plan into place. Our physicians will evaluate your injury, assist with a return-to-work review and impairment ratings, provide a prompt diagnosis, coordinate with a caseworker as needed and help get you back to yourself and life as soon as possible.
