Car accident injuries
Have you been in an auto accident? Even if you don’t feel pain now, it’s critical to visit a doctor within 14 days of the accident to check for unseen internal damage and record your state of health. This is required by Florida law in order to use your benefits. If you don’t visit us in that timeframe, you will lose your medical benefits and lost wages. Don’t delay, come in today! If you have missed your 14day time frame our office may still be able to help. Don’t hesitate! The longer your injuries go untreated, your overall health may be affected. Injuries from an auto accident can include disc injuries, headaches, whiplash, muscle strains, broken bones, and much more.
Slip & Fall Injuries
Slip and fall accidents can occur at home, work, school, or while out and about on your normal routine. The types of injuries a fall may cause can vary from broken bones to muscle strains. At the Injury Centers, our knowledgeable doctors and staff are ready to help you get back on your road to recovery and feeling better. Call us today.
Whiplash is a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip. Whiplash most often occurs during an auto accident but the injury can also result from a slip and fall, sports accident, physical abuse, or other trauma. Whiplash symptoms can include neck pain, stiffness, and headaches. We can help you with this injury with the proper diagnosis and treatment.
Disc Injuries are common after an auto accident and can include disc tear, disc bulge, herniated disc, and ruptured disc. Symptoms of a disc injury can vary depending on the location and whether any of the spinal nerves are compressed or damaged. Some common symptoms of disc injury include:
• Pain that radiates to legs or arms
• Numbness, tingling, aching, or burning sensations
• Pain that increases with movement like standing or sitting
• Unexplained muscle weakness
