If you hurt yourself in a motor vehicle accident or sustain a work-related injury, you may require care from a neurologist. Neuro Injury Care wants to set you up with auto accident doctors, a no-fault doctor, or a neurologist. Not only do we want to get you immediate treatment for your existing injuries, but we also want to help you avoid secondary injuries while acting as your medical advocate to better ensure you receive exemplary medical services. See what a difference it makes when you receive medical care from a leading Queens area neurologist.
Treatments from Auto Accident Doctors
After an auto accident or work-related injury, you could require special treatments to make a full recovery. Some of the neurological conditions we treat include:
- Seizure disorders
- Muscle pain or neck pain
- Excessive perspiration
- Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
- Muscle twitching
- Movement Disorders
If you do not know whether you have any of the conditions mentioned above but show symptoms, we also specialize in diagnosing several neurological disorders.
After a stressful event like a car accident or work injury, you may experience persistent migraines. A person suffers from chronic migraines if she or he experiences at least 15 headache days a month. Episodic migraines and chronic migraines are not the same, making it essential to receive a proper diagnosis and proper treatment.
To make an accurate diagnosis, we ask about headache frequency, patterns, severity, duration, and your autonomic symptoms. Whether you experience nausea or vomiting also affects your diagnosis.
For treatment, you may take daily preventative medication, manage acute migraine attacks and undergo transcranial magnetic stimulation. Your physician could also recommend lifestyle changes, such as a healthy diet, regular exercise, managing your stress, and adopting healthy sleep habits.
Workplace accidents and motor vehicle accidents may damage the sciatic nerve, the longest and thickest nerve in the human nervous system. A compressed or pinched sciatic nerve in the lower back, swelling, and irritation are common causes of sciatica pain. Slipped and herniated spinal discs may also put pressure on the nerve root causing neurological problems.
Symptoms associated with sciatica include:
- Loss of bladder and bowel control
- Moderate to intense lower back, leg, and buttock pain
- Tingling in the legs, feet, or toes
- Loss of range of motion and pain that increases with movement
- Numbness or weakness in your buttock, feet, leg, or lower back
While you may try at-home treatments to address sciatica, we recommend scheduling a consultation with us if you do not experience relief after six weeks.
To treat pain in your sciatic nerve, you may take prescription medication or undergo physical therapy or therapeutic injections. Your doctor could also recommend alternative therapies.
An essential part of a thorough neurology treatment plan is properly diagnosing the patient. After receiving an in-depth and accurate diagnosis from auto accident doctors, you may experience a great deal of relief once you understand your condition and options. Another benefit of letting a no-fault doctor diagnose you after a car accident or work-related injury is you could have a better idea of how to approach whatever legal claim you may have. After all, seeking compensation for a mild head injury differs from collecting damages for a traumatic brain injury.
If you suffer a head injury, traumatic brain injury or migraine, a neurologist may diagnose you with dizziness. While you need not worry about dizziness as a life-threatening health condition, it can cause you difficulty when you constantly feel woozy, faint, lightheaded, unbalanced, and nauseated. Consider seeking an official diagnosis if any of these sound familiar to you.
After a workplace accident or car crash, you may experience depression or anxiety, either of which may lead to chronic fatigue syndrome. This long-term illness could make it difficult for you to work, spend time with your loved ones or engage in your favorite activities. You could even find it hard to get out of bed if you experience chronic fatigue.
If you receive a chronic fatigue diagnosis, you may have associated health conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome. Patients with severe fatigue could also have fibromyalgia.
Because the condition does not have a cure, Neuro Injury Care offers various chronic fatigue treatments that focus on addressing your symptoms. Because chronic fatigue often leads to depression, we recommend working with a mental health specialist. You may also need help to regulate your heart rhythms and blood pressure.
Rather than receiving treatment for a car accident or work injury, you may desire a healthcare facility that offers EMG tests for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). If you worry you could have adult ADHD, we recommend setting harmful stigmas aside and focusing on getting an accurate diagnosis, so you may reclaim your life. We also like to let our patients know they have options other than medication to treat their ADHD.
As part of the diagnosis process, we conduct a medical exam to rule out similar conditions, gather information related to your current medical issues and family medical history, conduct interviews, and questionnaires, and use ADHD rating scales. You may also undergo neuropsychological testing to gauge your brain’s functionality and see which sections of your brain ADHD affects.
Depending on your job, you may perform repetitive motions day in and day out. If so, you could experience a chronic pain disorder called myofascial pain syndrome. You may also experience the condition because of stress-related muscle tension. No matter the cause of your pain, we offer trigger point injections to help you experience relief.
For this treatment, we inject medicine directly into your myofascial trigger points. Injections may include local anesthesia to block pain receptors, botulinum toxin A to keep muscles from contracting and a corticosteroid to address swelling in connective tissue and muscle.
Neurologists sometimes review trigger point injection risks with patients before treatments. To help address your anxiety, understand that the treatment has few risks.
