Car Accident Injury Clinic
Did you know that, on average, there are more than 16,000 car accidents per day in the US? That adds up to approximately 6 million per year. Those accidents cause more than 3 million injuries each year. Some of those injuries might be scrapes and bruises, but many are serious enough to require medical attention and physical therapy.
What Should You Do After a Car Accident?
This is one of the easiest decisions you’ll ever make–get medical attention. Even if you don’t feel like you sustained a serious injury during the car accident, you won’t know for sure until a paramedic thoroughly checks you out at the accident scene by an ER doctor, or by your own physician.
What if you’re injured? It is of the utmost importance you seek medical attention as soon as possible, so your injuries are documented. That way, your insurance company is fully informed of your injuries and the treatment you required.
Will I Need Physical Therapy?
That all depends on the severity of your injuries as well as the recommendations of your doctor. If a car accident results in long-term injury, surgery, or chronic pain, odds are you will need physical therapy at some point. And when you do, Physical Therapy Now is the ideal facility for all your physical therapy needs.
