Why Seek Medical Treatment After a Car Accident?
Seeking quick and appropriate medical treatment is one of the most vital steps in accelerating the healing process and prevent chronic pain from developing. Think of it this way: When a professional athlete gets injured, they start therapy for the injuries almost immediately-usually daily, if not multiple times a day. The reason, when you’re paining an athlete millions of dollars, you want them back on the field as soon as possible. Without proper treatment, healing is delayed and can sometimes cut an athlete’s career short. It doesn’t matter whether you were injured playing sports or in a car accident. The healing process is the same. Our office provides the same treatment you would get if you were a professional athlete. The potential health issues that stem from car accident can sometimes take weeks to manifest into recognizable pain, by which time you may not even associate your injury with the crash.
How is Treatment Paid For?

Our facility will also take auto accident cases on a lien. Put simply, your attorney signs a lien promising to pay us for treatment once he/she settles your case with the insurance company.
