Accidents and Injury Care Q & A
What is accidents and injury care?
The team at Alpha Care Medical offers care to a broad spectrum of patients. In addition to their expertise in helping patients with chronic conditions, they also specialize in treating acute injuries. These are injuries that come on suddenly.
You might experience an acute injury after a car collision or a slip-and-fall accident, but some acute injuries can occur without an obvious cause. For example, simply stepping on your ankle wrong can result in a sprain.
The Alpha Care Medical staff has extensive experience treating a wide range of acute injuries, including:
- Broken bones
In addition to treating sudden-onset injuries, the Alpha Care Medical team also treats overuse injuries. These injuries generally develop over time and often start as a persistent soreness that, left untreated, can escalate to the point that the injury is debilitating.
Alpha Care Medical treats patients with overuse injuries like:
- Tennis elbow
- Achilles tendinitis
- Runner’s knee
- Golfer’s elbow
- Shin splints
Whether your injury came on suddenly or has developed over time, you can get the care you need at Alpha Care Medical.
When should I see a doctor for accidents and injury care?
After an injury, it’s okay to try at-home care for a few days to see if the injury responds. You can support the healing of most injuries with the RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) technique.
If your injury doesn’t get better within a few days, make an appointment at Alpha Care Medical. Treating your injury early can help you heal faster and avoid long-lasting repercussions from it.
What should I expect from accidents and injury care?
At Alpha Care Medical, the team tailors your care to your needs. As specialists in pain management, they help you find relief from any discomfort you’re experiencing. At the same time, they apply functional medicine to help your body heal.
With this approach, they look at your body as a whole rather than confining treatment to the injured area. This ensures you get the right treatment.
For example, a car accident can cause a misalignment in your body that doesn’t immediately cause pain but needs correction to avoid complications over time. Through a whole-body approach, the Alpha Care Medical team designs a treatment program that truly helps your body heal.
