Conditions We Treat

Auto Accidents

At Downtown’s Healthcare you can rest assured that we are the practice of choice for people who suffer from injuries involved in car crashes.
According to the Insurance Council, the most common injury one has when involved in a car accident is soft tissue damage (neck and back) 87% of the time.  Unfortunately over 80% of these injuries are permanent injuries that mostly go undiagnosed.   Based on this fact it is imperative that one chooses the right medical care not only for treatment but for proper documentation of injuries as well.  
Why?  It is the difference between reaching the best version of you or not.  It is the difference between being able to do the things you love to do.  It is the difference between being made whole again or not.

5 tips for choosing medical help after a car accident:

1. Don’t wait to seek medical care
Failing to seek medical help after a car accident, or shrugging off “minor” symptoms like headaches, muscle aches or fatigue, can be dangerous to your health and well being. Even if you feel no pain right after a collision, many car accident injures – like concussions, whiplash, soft tissue injuries and spinal injuries – may no display symptoms until several hours, days or even weeks after the accident.
2. Don’t choose your primary care physician (PCP)

Your PCP has been trained to treat internal health conditions.  They are not equipped to identify and treat car accident injuries.

3. Look up online reviews before making a selection

Research doctors in your area before making your selection.  Online reviews and patient testimonials can help you judge what kind of care and service you can expect to receive.

4. Be honest with you doctor

At your first appointment, be completely upfront with your physician. Be able to tell him or her:

  • The circumstances surrounding your car accident and how it occurred
  • The symptoms you’re experiencing
  • When symptoms began
  • The severity of symptoms
  • A full medical history, including pre-existing conditions and previous injuries

Your doctor will need a full view of your medical history and current medical condition.  To allow them to diagnose your injuries accurately and prescribe the appropriate treatments.

5. Don’t be afraid to ask questions

Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor questions.  When your health and safety is on the line, you need to be your own biggest advocate. A reputable doctor will be able to prove the credentials and qualifications he or she has to treat your specific injuries. Ask your doctor to explain the detailed treatment plan they’ve created to treat your injuries.  As well as any long-term effects you may experience from your injuries.
