One type of injury that individuals may suffer in an accident is a herniated disc. Treatment for this type of injury will depend on its severity, such as the level of pain the patient experiences.
In some cases, it may require a few different treatments before finding something that works. At a minimum, the injured patient should rest and avoid movement that could make the injury worse.
Treatment for a herniated disc could include any of the following:
- anti-inflammatory medication;
- muscle relaxants;
- pain medication;
- cortisone injections;
- physical therapy; and
There are different types of surgery that may be performed. This will depend on a variety of other factors.
Back injuries are not only expensive but oftentimes result in a lot of missed time from work. As a result, compensation for missed work could be available as well.
If you sustained a painful injury such as a herniated disc in a car accident, you should seek legal counsel immediately.
