Personal Injury Q & A

What is a personal injury?

A personal injury is any type of physical or mental injury that occurs due to someone else’s negligence or physical harm. Common types of personal injuries include:

  • Car accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Assault or battery

Car accidents are the most common type of personal injury, though any personal injury can cause trauma or damage to your musculoskeletal system. The Ortho One Jacksonville team offers comprehensive exams and treatment for all types of personal injuries to help you recover and get back to normal as quickly as possible.

What types of injuries result from personal injury cases?

Since many different types of trauma fall under the category of personal injury law, it’s best to get a thorough exam from the Ortho One team in order to understand the extent of your injuries and have them treated in a timely manner. Common types of injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Neck and back pain
  • Headaches
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Fractures

The Ortho One team also works with your insurance company or legal team to provide extensive documentation of your injuries and the treatment required to help you heal properly.

How are personal injuries diagnosed?

When you arrive for your initial visit, the Ortho One team begins with a consultation and exam to understand what type of incident you were involved in, when it happened, and what symptoms you’re experiencing. The team then completes a total physical exam, assessing your range of motion, muscle and nerve function, and any cuts, scrapes, or bruises you may have from your incident.

The team may order X-rays or an MRI in cases of suspected whiplash, muscle tears, or fractures. Based on their findings, the team explains your diagnosis and what treatment options are available for your recovery.

What types of treatment are available for personal injuries?

The Ortho One team offers a mix of conservative and interventional treatments and therapies to address your pain and musculoskeletal dysfunction. Conservative therapies include:

  • Hot and cold therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Electrical nerve stimulation
  • Over-the-counter medications
  • Prescription anti-inflammatory and pain medications

In cases of serious injury or injuries that don’t resolve with conservative care, the team also offers:

  • Injection therapy
  • Arthroscopy
  • Surgery

Some cases, such as certain types of fractures or muscle tears, may require immediate surgical care to prevent long-term damage.
