You Were In A Wreck & Medical Clinics Won't See You - Now What?
We have your answers for treatment after a car wreck.
How Creek Stone Integrated Medical Can Help an Accident Victim – Why Be Treated After A Car Crash?
Even a seemingly minor car crash with little damage to the vehicle can result in serious pain for drivers and passengers in a car. A visit to Urgent Care or to your primary doctor for treatment may surprise you. Conventional medicine saves lives every day, especially in emergency situations and other life-threatening conditions. But the downside of this kind of treatment when it comes to a car crash in Amarillo, TX is that, in our experience, most doctors will not work with car insurance companies and/or attorneys representing the car crash victims. In addition, as most know, medical treatment is expensive.
We have had patients tell us that they have been treated by their primary care doctor for over 20 years but when they tried to go to their doctor after they were in a car wreck, their doctor refused to see them.
Sounds crazy, right? But it is the truth! So, we are not being dramatic when we say that for many people in the Amarillo area if you are in a car wreck, your options for treatment may be limited.
How Creek Stone Integrated Medical can step in and get you back to your life
Here at Creek Stone, we can typically get you started on the same day you call the clinic. That's a big deal because many specialists are backed up for weeks or months. We can get your x-rays ordered on your first visit so we start immediately.
Not only that but we have a board-certified orthopedic specialist that has been recognized as an expert in court for whiplash that can diagnose you quickly and efficiently.
If that were not reason enough to get started at Creek Stone, we also have Medical Services available and will have you treated with the best of both worlds. Medical, Chiropractic, and Exercise. All focused on getting you feeling better as fast as possible.
We get you moving on a smaller scale, as with spinal manipulative therapy. Then we get you moving on a more global scale by teaching you exercises that we help lead you through on each appointment. Movement is healing and research is clear, those that aren't moving effectively and efficiently are not healing as quickly and as fully.
Think about this for a minute; do you want to go to your medical clinic (if they'll even see you, of course), then drive across town to see your chiropractor? Then drive to see your physical therapist? And then maybe drive over for a massage? Of course not!
We offer the following all in one place under one roof and coordinate your care so that you can do it all in one visit should you choose:
- Medical Care
- Physical Therapy-like - targeted movement and exercise protocols
- Chiropractic Care
- Massage Therapy
- Therapies like low-level laser, decompression, electric stim, and more
In addition to saving you time by having everything in one place, we have worked with personal injury attorneys and car wreck insurance companies for years and years. For about 15 years to be more accurate. There is typically LITTLE OR NO MONEY AT ALL required from the patient themselves to be treated. Sometimes treatment can be up to 3-4 months and STILL COSTS THE PATIENT NO MONEY OUT OF THEIR POCKET.
When to call Creek Stone
The best time to act is immediately after the accident. The faster you are evaluated, the better. When pain is allowed to stick around and persist for 3 months or more, it is called chronic pain and chronic pain is a lot harder to get rid of.
A quick visit will help us get a head start on getting you back to normal as quickly as possible.
Call us at 806-355-3000 and let's get started.
