Throughout our lives, we can get caught up in the day-to-day very quickly. When either focused heavily on work or on our favorite activities, it can be easy to ignore the basic care we may need. For instance, if you’re into sports and you pull a muscle, you may write it off as a ‘normal’ injury that will heal and leave it at that without seeing a physician. However, this can be detrimental to your health if you’re not careful. We spoke with Dr. Daniel Krauchuk DO from Pledge Medical, our personal injury doctors who work on a lien basis in Newport Beach, California, about this very topic. You can follow along with Dr. Krauchuk’s Quick Tip video here below or read on for more.

Dr. Krauchuk is double board certified in interventional pain management and has a background in general surgery, as well, and even he recognizes that getting caught up in your activities can be easy to do. Dr. Krauchuk rides a motorcycle and has gotten injuries from riding, and he stresses the importance of getting to a good physician quickly if you’re ever injured, no matter how small you think it may be. It might feel more like common sense to you when put into the perspective of a motorcycle accident, so let’s go with a different example. In the example above, if you pull a muscle while playing sports, it’s better to have it looked at just in case, as there could be larger issues that, when ignored, could get much worse and eventually hinder your ability to play sports long-term.
All in all, if you’ve been injured in an accident, be sure to see visit Pledge Medical or any of our facilities who work on a lien basis to see which type of care may be best for you. Pledge Medical office offers a variety of services from orthopedic surgery to general surgery to neurosurgery and pain management in the Newport Beach area, and we have a full list of doctors who work on a lien basis across California and Nevada, as well.
