Physical Therapy: The Road to Complete Physical Recovery
Medical treatment is sometimes not enough to facilitate a full recovery. Many personal injury patients suffer long-term pain and limitations due to physical trauma, broken bones, or torn muscles or ligaments. You may need physical therapy if your injuries include any of these. You’ll need help so your body can regain its mobility and physical fitness.
Surgery is not a requirement for physical therapy, although post-operative rehabilitation is also common in personal injury cases.
When you’re in a car accident, your first instinct might be to go to your primary physician. We don’t discourage this, as long as they know what to do when treating patients involved in car accidents. Be on your guard, however, if they say this:
“We don’t accept accident cases.”
It means they don’t have enough experience dealing with patients who may later want to file a PIP claim. They can give primary treatment, but they might miss details that would have been crucial to your case. It’s better to go directly to medical practitioners who know how to handle such cases.
Floridians who encounter accidents on the road are welcome at Your Care Health Network. We have qualified physicians and an internist and physical therapy expert who’ll treat and help you with your insurance claims in the future.
