Auto Accident Doctor and Tingling Symptoms in Mesquite & Garland

Mesquite auto accident doctor explains the common symptoms like numbness and tingling, pins and needles, and or radiating nerve pain.  Some accident victims may experience radiating pain or tingling sensations down an arm or leg.  Auto accidents can damage important regions of the spine specifically the soft tissue area called the disc.  This can create nerve root entrapment by soft tissue inflammation and structural blockage of the nerve.  This impingement can cause symptoms such as the sensation of pin and needles, tingling and even sharp pain down an arm or leg pain.  Our Mesquite auto accident doctor will explain if non-evasive treatment can be an option to relieve your symptoms and resolve your pain.  A physical exam is needed to see where and what nerves may be affected.

It is very important to see a doctor to make sure symptoms are not serious after an accident.  If symptoms as discussed above are occurring it is a clear sign one may have a compressed disc with nerve damage or pinched nerve requiring rehabilitation and treatment.  Long-term complications can occur commonly without treatment such as spinal stenosis and it is highly recommended to make sure healing is not compromised after a traumatic auto accident.  Misaligned vertebrae may also be a common cause for peripheral nerve symptoms and in so it is critical to evaluate the structure of your spine and if it has been damaged.  


Common Diagnosis of Nerve Related Conditions:

  • Sciatica 
  • Herniated Disc
  • Median nerve entrapment

An evaluation from a doctor may be important after an auto accident, but it is critical to get evaluated as soon as possible.  A gap between an accident and going to the doctor can present some complications with the auto insurance company in covering and paying for injuries.  Do not let this happen for it can be a valid reason for them not to pay.  One surefire way to avoid this complication is to at least get evaluated properly after your auto accident immediately.
