Qualified Joint Injury Lawyer in Toronto
In its simplest definition, a joint is an area where 2 or more bones meet. Joints are what allow our bones to move. Our bodies consist of hundreds of joints. When any joint gets damaged, a person can suffer serious pain, limited mobility, and in severe cases chronic complications that lower their quality of life. Joint injuries occur commonly after accidents such as motorcycle accidents, car accidents, and slip and fall incidents. If you or a loved one is suffering a debilitating joint injury as a result of another’s negligent actions, our catastrophic injury lawyer in Toronto can help. Consult Grillo Law today to discuss your options for filing a claim to receive financial compensation for losses incurred.
Joints Susceptible to Injury After a Traumatic Accident
Joints in the neck, back, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles, and feet are some of the most susceptible to injury after a traumatic accident. At Grillo Law, we’ve represented clients facing the following common joint injuries:
- Carpal- tunnel syndrome
- Herniated spinal discs
- Meniscus tears
- Sprains: When the ligaments that hold the bones together sustain injuries.
- Strains: When the joint muscles and/or tendons are overextended.
- Dislocations: When the bone separates from its normal position at a joint.
- Fractures: These include breaks, chips, or cracks inside the bones.
- Shoulder injuries: They include rotator cuff tears, dislocation of the shoulder, and separated shoulder.
How Are Joint Injuries Diagnosed?
The physician will perform a physical exam looking out for symptoms of joint injuries such as:
- Pain and swelling
- Redness and numbness
- Muscle spasm
- Difficulty in moving the affected joint
- A popping sound at the time of the injury
- Loss of function in the injured area
- Pain intensifies when you move or apply pressure to the injured area
- A bone that visibly pokes out of the skin
- A visible displacement of the joint
- Total immobility of the affected area
To provide a proper diagnosis, the physician will also order a series of medical examinations such as X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and/or blood tests. Some joint injuries do not manifest immediately after an accident occurs. That’s why it’s important to go for a thorough check-up immediately when involved in any accident.
What Are the Treatment Options for Joint Injuries?
There are diverse treatment options for joint injury patients depending on the nature, location, and severity of the condition. They include:
- Mild joint injuries can be treated with rest, stretching, physical therapy, and ice packs.
- Physiotherapy treatments
- Anti-inflammatory medication
- Use of medical aids like crutches, braces, and orthotics.
- Protective taping
