Car Accident Injury Treatment Program
Our car accident injury treatment program has 5 parts. Our program aims to have our car accident patients receive all of the necessary care and recover from their injuries as much as possible.
- Identification of All Injuries
- Multiple Healthcare Providers
- Fast Diagnostics & Referrals
- Latest Technology in Injury Treatment
- Treatment After Denial of Insurance Coverage
1. Identification of All Injuries
Every patient undergoes a detailed physical examination on the first visit. Every major body part is examined for flexibility, stiffness, muscle spasm, strength, reflex, and sensation. Many patients are not fully aware of every injury they have, because they usually have one or two major injuries that are causing them the most pain. However, if minor injuries are ignored, they could cause major problems later on. Therefore, our doctors try to identify all major and minor injuries and treat every injury.
2. Multiple Healthcare Providers
Most people have more than one body part that becomes injured in a car accident. It is simply not realistic to expect one healthcare professional to treat all injured body parts on every treatment session. Therefore, we have different healthcare providers, such as physical therapists, chiropractors, and acupuncturists who work as a team to treat multiple body parts on every treatment session. We also work with medical doctors at our office to monitor progress and to order diagnostic tests and medication if necessary. We offer our patients one-stop convenience when it comes treating car accident injuries.
3. Fast Diagnostics & Referrals
Many car accident patients require diagnostic tests and referrals to medical specialists to treat them fully. Many doctors are not aware of what kind of diagnostic tests a car accident patient needs, because they do not treat many car accident patients. Even worse, some doctor delay ordering the diagnostic test and making referrals so much so that by the time the referral is made, the patient’s car accident insurance coverage is terminated. Then the patient becomes responsible for the payment of the diagnostic test and treatment. At our office, when clinically necessary, we refer our patients for diagnostic tests and specialists without delay, to make sure that our patients receive all of the necessary diagnostic tests and treatment on time.
4. Latest Technology in Injury Treatment
If you have browsed the “Services” section of our office website, you would have noticed that we have many different types of advanced treatment available. Through our clinical experience over many years, we have selected some of the most effective treatment available for traumatic injuries, such as laser therapy and spinal decompression. Although some medical offices only render the absolute minimum treatment required by law, we go above and beyond by offering may types of advanced treatment based on our patient’s needs.
5. Treatment After Denial of Insurance Coverage
Car Accident Insurance Companies will eventually terminate coverage for treatment of car accident injuries for each patient. However, sometimes the patient needs more treatment after the insurance coverage termination. If we determine that it is medically necessary for our patient to continue treatment after the insurance coverage has been terminated, we will still continue to treat the patient. We will continue to file claims to the insurance company, and not bill the patient. We will hire attorneys who specialize in collecting these unpaid medical bills directly from insurance companies. If our attorneys fail to collect on our unpaid medical bills, by law our patient is not held responsible for payment of these unpaid medical bills.
Understanding Seriousness of Even Minor Collisions
Many doctors and therapists simply lack the training and experience to diagnose and treat seemingly minor injuries that can become major life-long debilitating chronic conditions. Some medical professionals do not take car accidents seriously if there is no fracture or bleeding. It is very possible to become severely injured and develop crippling life-long chronic pain, or even killed, in a car accident with absolutely no damage to the vehicle. At our office we take this possibility very seriously, and we do not cut corners when diagnosing and treating car accident injuries.
Children and Car Accident
Often, children are involved in car accidents along with their parents. Due to their small size, children can be injured more severely than adults. However, due to their greater capacity to heal, they can often recover from their injuries much faster compared to adults. It has been our experience that children often do not complain about pain and discomfort after being injured in a car accident because they are afraid of going to doctors. It is important to correct any structural injuries in children, as their bodies are still growing. It is never a good idea to ignore a small problem that can grow into a big problem. At our office, we are familiar with treating children injured in car accidents. We can easily accommodate children by modifying the intensity of our treatment. Most children find out treatment relaxing and fun.
