A patient came into the office with complaints of pain throughout her body following a biking accident. She reports that she was hit by a car while riding her bicycle on the road. After being taken to the hospital, she was diagnosed with 4 broken ribs, a collapsed lung, and internal bleeding. After being stabilized and released from the hospital, she continued to have pain, including severe right lower leg pain. This ongoing pain motivated her to call our office for treatment. X-ray examination of her right leg performed during her first visit revealed a fractured shin bone. In the hospital’s haste to treat her “more serious” injuries, they missed her leg fracture. The moral of this story? If you are experiencing ongoing pain after being treated for your car accident, motorcycle accident, or bicycle accident injuries, give Heritage Health a call at (303) 694-1245 and let us do a complete, thorough evaluation to help provide the answer as to why the pain continues!
