Personal Injury Q & A

What is a personal injury?

Personal injury is a legal term that indicates your injury arose out of someone else’s negligence. Car accidents are the most common type of personal injury. A work injury is also a type of personal injury for which you may be covered by workers’ compensation. Dr. Ben-Meir treats patients who’ve been injured in car accidents, at work, or anywhere else.

What can I expect during care for my personal injury?

Dr. Ben-Meir provides comprehensive care when you come in for treatment for your personal injury. He wants nothing more than to help reduce your pain, heal your injuries, and get you back to doing the things you love.

Some of the problems resulting from personal injuries that Dr. Ben-Meir treats include:

  • Shoulder or knee injuries
  • Herniated discs or pinched nerves
  • Traumatic injury to the neck, such as whiplash
  • Migraines or tension headaches

To help him determine the best care for you, it’s important that you provide as much detail about the injury as possible, including the source of your pain and your symptoms. Dr. Ben-Meir reviews your medical and family history and conducts a physical examination. He may also require diagnostic tests, such as an X-ray or MRI, to look for damaged tissue.

What treatments are available for my personal injury?

Dr. Ben-Meir is a pain management specialist with many years of experience and offers a number of treatments to help you recover from your personal injury. Your treatment plan is personalized based on your injury, medical history, and the type of pain you’re experiencing. He may initially recommend conservative treatments to help you heal, including physical therapy and the appropriate pain medication or anti-inflammatory medicine.

If you fail to improve with conservative treatments, Dr. Ben-Meir may suggest other treatments, such as:

  • Nerve blocks
  • Epidurals
  • Trigger point injection

Additionally, Dr. Ben-Meir offers innovative pain management treatments that accelerate healing, including platelet-rich plasma therapy. He can also provide long-term pain management with spinal cord stimulation, which is an implanted device that sends a mild electric current through the nerves in your spine to alter the pain signals.

You need comprehensive medical management for your personal injury so you can heal and get back to your life. For expert care, call Downtown Pain Management or book an appointment.
