Being injured is an unpleasant experience. To heal rapidly, you need an effective treatment plan that is designed for your personal needs. It should address your physical needs, the cause of your injury as well as any symptoms or conditions that have resulted from it.

You want prompt relief of your pain and discomfort along with the tools you need to make a full recovery. No matter how you received your personal injury, you want a qualified physician and medical staff on your side during the healing process.

Car Accident Treatment

Car accidents can involve any number of injuries, including:

  • Soft tissue/Whiplash
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Headaches
  • Neck strain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Neurological and Radiculopathies
  • Broken bones

There are many ways of treating injuries related to car and other types of vehicular accidents. Physical therapy, deep tissue massage and other interventional adjustments can help reduce inflammation and bring the body back into balance after a traumatic injury.

Injuries received in a car accident may be extensive. Some may not present themselves immediately after the accident. It is important to be seen immediately after the accident and then follow up a few days later to ensure your physician knows the full extent of your injuries and discomfort.

Important info on Florida’s PIP law

If you were in a motor vehicle accident, the State of Florida requires that you seek medical treatment within 14 days of the accident to be covered by your PIP insurance. To delay treatment beyond 14 days means you will lose all ability to use your auto insurance for medical coverage for your treatment. If you are involved in an auto accident and are injured, seek immediate treatment from a qualified physician at Multi-Care Medical in Fort Myers, where we have Orthopedic, Neurologic and Pain Management specialists.

Florida PIP laws limit coverage to $2,500, not $10,000, unless an Emergency Medical Condition (EMC) evaluation is completed. We at Multi-Care Medical provide EMC evaluations on site that will not limit your benefits to $2,500 when medically necessary. The benefit to our patients is they can see the specialists needed at one facility. We pride ourselves on being able to evaluate and treat our patients over the necessary period of time that it takes our patients to heal, unlike hospitals and ER’s, which wipe insurance coverage out in one day.

With the use of anti-inflammatory medications, deep tissue massage, injections within the affected joint and adjustments, the Multi-Care Medical staff can help to alleviate your discomfort and reduce the inflammation that may be preventing you from healing properly.
