How We Can Help You with Motorcycle Injury Pain
If you are a motorcyclist, the prospect of having an accident is one of the scariest parts of riding. Sadly, many motorcyclists suffer this fate each year, regardless of how safely they are riding. Too often, other motorists do not look out for bikers. Also, inclement weather is responsible for contributing to many motorcycle accidents.
Over ¾ of motorcycle accidents result in injuries for the rider. If you have been the unfortunate victim of a motorcycle accident while riding around, the good news is that your friends at Impact Medical are here to help you get on the road to recovery as quickly as possible.
Some expected injuries that result from a motorcycle crash are lower extremity injuries including the legs, knees, hips, ankles, and feet. Arm damage is also common, as it is a human reflex to shield yourself with your arms and hands during an accident. This means many motorcycle accident victims end up with fractures, contusions, abrasions, and muscle/ligament damage to their arms.
The other most common forms of trauma in a motorcycle accident are to the head, neck, and spine. Cranial fractures, whiplash, and spinal damage are incredibly common and can lead to lifelong disability. This is why it is so very important to wear protective gear when riding, including the most important gear of all…a helmet.
Even if you are doing everything right as a rider, accidents can and do occur. Here at Impact Medical, our fantastic multi-disciplinary team has the full ability to help treat your post-accident injuries.
