Auto Injury Q & A

What are some common types of auto injuries?

Traumatic car accidents can result in damage to the bones, nerves, muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments throughout your body. Common types of auto injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Soft tissue damage (e.g., sprains, strains, and contusions)
  • Joint injuries
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Herniated or ruptured disc
  • Head injuries such as concussion
  • Spinal cord injuries


Auto injuries can cause immediate pain as well as chronic pain that lasts well after the initial accident. An auto injury can limit your mobility and reduce your overall quality of life. At Precision Pain Management, LLC, Dr. Coccaro and his team offer a wide range of treatments to safely and effectively relieve your pain.

When should I see a doctor after an auto accident?

Damage to your bones, nerves, soft tissue, and other structures can result in a number of different types of pain. Sufferers of auto injuries often experience issues like back pain, neck pain, muscle weakness, numbness, and swelling. In many cases, these symptoms can become severe or debilitating.

If you experience pain following an auto accident, it’s important to seek medical care. Certain conditions like strains, joint injuries, and spinal cord injuries can worsen without effective treatment.

Even if you’ve already received treatment, certain types of auto injuries can result in chronic pain. Precision Pain Management, LLC, specializes in interventional pain medicine for both acute and chronic pain.
