Car Crash Victims

Car accidents and motorcycle accidents can be frustrating, unnerving, and stressful occurrences even whether the damage is severe or not. Dealing properly with the immediate aftermath of a car accident is a key factor to try to ensure the medical treatments are as favorable as possible.

Get Checked Within 14 Days

Everyone reacts differently to a car crash. Some people have pain right away or days after or even weeks after. Sometimes even serious physical issues might not present any signs for several days or weeks. Pain conditions can range from headaches, neck injuries and back pain, arm and leg pain and other injuries that if left untreated will lead to serious complications.

It’s Important to See A Medical Professional

We highly recommend that you visit our doctors in Tampa, FL immediately after a car accident so we can analyze your injuries and provide you with the urgent care and relief you need. Our doctors will help identify the source of your pain and find the best treatment and solution for you. We make a strong effort to prioritize appointments for patients involved in car accidents.

Seek Medical Care To Treat Injuries

If you have a pre-existing injury that was aggravated by the accident, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even if your injury is minor and you don’t initially feel any pain or discomfort, it’s important to check in with a doctor.

We Treat Patients with Auto Injuries

Delayed onset of pain is common after car accidents, so even if you feel fine immediately afterward it’s still worthwhile to see a doctor. These types of injuries can include soft tissue damage to muscles and ligaments which can take days or even weeks to develop symptoms.

The Benefits of Total Vitality Medical Group: Care to the Victim of a Florida Auto Accident

The car accident doctors who operate Total Vitality Medical Group have met individuals with chronic pain who have stated “I was in a car accident that was pretty minor, so I decided not to do anything.” This fateful choice by the victim of an automobile accident more often than not results in a long-term condition setting in, the kind of condition that typically will cost a large amount of money to treat.

Car Accident Doctor Tampa

The medical team from Total Vitality Medical Group specializes in the expedient and non-invasive treatment of injuries arising from car crashes of all sizes. The goal in each case is to minimize the need for go-to treatment options like dangerous and addictive medication. Members of medical staff, instead, prefer to develop a plan for treatment that will employ spinal manipulation to realign the spinal cord and promote the release of natural healing factors, physical therapy as a rehabilitative measure, or surgery if non-invasive treatment does not provide an appropriate level of relief.

Treatment that is chiropractic in nature helps to lessen inflammation to the areas that have been stretched and torn, like:

  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles

Back Pain and Neck Pain

In tandem with this chiropractic plan to minimize inflammation, or as a standalone treatment option, our medical team will also make an effort to incorporate a physical therapy plan that will:

  • Prevent additional loss to the range of motion
  • Improve diminished range of motion
  • Improve strength in the injured area and supporting muscle groups

The Total Vitality Medical Group medical professionals’ treatment plan for each patient will always be tailored by medical staff and a medical director who will observe the condition and act as an advocate for proper care. The goal will be to improve the lifestyle and mobility level of the injured person.

Auto Injury Doctors

Hidden Serious Injuries or Minor Injuries

The decision to seek care after a car collision is right when the victim of the accident does not want to suffer from long-term pain or suffer financially in the future. Here in Florida, it is unfortunate that countless victims of auto accidents, especially those who are worried that his or her role as the at-fault driver will mean that there is no insurance to pay for the chiropractic treatment of medical injuries.

The Floridians who make the decision to skip treatment after an auto accident may not know that if the driver of a vehicle or a passenger in one of the vehicles has suffered an injury in a Florida car collision, PIP covers payment of medical bills including the bills for seeing a chiropractor.

Auto Insurance Information

Florida No Fault Insurance, or Personal Injury Protection (PIP), is a required insurance that will cover all parties involved in a Florida car crash, no matter who is truly at fault in the auto accident. PIP insurance will:

  • Cover up to the limits of your policy

  • Cover children, members of your household and specific passengers, who lack insurance and do not own a car or truck.

A person who is riding in your vehicle who possesses his or her own Florida No Fault Insurance will be covered under his or her own insurance policy for the injuries accrued in the auto crash.

INSURANCE COMPANY

Please note that under Florida Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law, all car and truck owners or registrants of a vehicle that has at least four wheels must carry at least $10,000 of PIP and $10,000 of property damage liability.

A Pinched Nerve is pressure that is applied to a nerve in which the result is:

  • Pain

  • Numbness

  • Tingling

Car Accident Clinic Treatment & Recovery

A car accident can cause a nerve to become pinched at any point in your body but the point most noticed by our chiropractors is the spine. This injury often occurs with several additional injuries or conditions. The treatment plan to improve the quality of life from a pinched nerve in an auto accident will include spinal adjustment, the goal of this treatment is to force the nerve endings to relax.

Physical Therapy To Treat Car Accident Injuries

Physical therapy is often a fantastic option to treat the symptoms of a pinched nerve. The physical therapist you work with from Total Vitality Medical Group will design a program consisting of both passive and active treatments to aid in recovery from the pain of the pinched nerve.

A Herniated Disc is often present when the spinal cord suffers damage and trauma. The damaged disc pushes on the nerves that are in the spinal cord. The injury becomes exponentially worse should the jelly-like inner substance in the disc leak out. This injury has the ability to be pain-free, but it is more likely that the victim will experience:

  • Pain

  • Numbness

  • Weakness

The treatment of a herniated disc will need to be tailored by our medical team to the symptoms present in a specific patient, but it can include:

  • Therapeutic exercises

  • Manual Therapy

  • Flexion-distraction

  • Pelvic blocking

In situations in which a less-invasive approach has not resulted in reduced pain, a surgical procedure like a laminotomy may be required to achieve true comfort.

Auto Injury FAQs

How long do I have to go to a doctor after a car accident?2022-12-14T09:47:50-05:00

You have 14 days to seek care from a doctor. We verify your insurance for you and even help you open your claim.  Injuries might not show up immediately so its important to get the documentation to your insurance company. If you wait longer than 14 days, your insurance will not cover the car accident.

Should I go to the hospital, urgent care or medical clinic after a car accident?2022-12-13T09:41:07-05:00

If the injury is very serious and you feel your life is in danger then you should go to the hospital or urgent care. However, if the injury is not too serious, then you can go to a doctors office which will be much cheaper than going to the hospital. Urgent care often are overbooked and long waits due to covid.
