An auto accident can change your life. Many individuals will experience injury to more than one part of their body.

Trust Your Care to a Medical Specialist

A medical specialist is key to your recovery after an automobile accident. By completing advanced education and clinical training, a specialist has the experience and knowledge to determine the source of your pain, diagnose your injury, and prescribe the most effective therapy and rehabilitation plan. Let their advanced knowledge and experience work for you.

  • Detailed and precise medical knowledge
  • Increased experience with diagnosis and rehabilitation
  • Improved recovery times

Our group of medical specialists are here to help. With specialists in neuromuscular and neurophysiology, minimally invasive and interventional pain treatment, physical therapy, and osteopathy, our medical professionals work as a team to diagnose your injuries, design an individualized treatment plan, and help you recover quickly.

Patient Care Specialities Offered

We provide many different types of treatments and treatment plans as we cater to your specific needs to ensure you experience the best possible outcome. From pain management to orthopedics to physical therapy, we have the specialists you need.

Interventional Pain Management

Interventional pain management is an alternative to traditional pain treatments, such as narcotics, which only treat the symptoms and can be highly addictive. Instead, interventional pain management physicians work with your pain symptoms and build an individualized treatment plan specifically for you and your needs.  

Treatments can include local injections and minimally invasive procedures designed to minimize or eliminate your pain. Treatment begins with an evaluation appointment with Dr. Lora Brown, our board certified doctor. To get to the root of your pain, she’ll investigate the details of your accident to examine the mechanism of injury, and develop a plan just for you.

Interventional pain management can help treat symptoms like neck and back pain, pain with movement, pain when sitting or standing, radiating pain, and when other conservative therapies are no longer working.

Neurology

Neurologists diagnose and treat disorders of the brain and nervous system, and while you may not think car accident victims need to seek neurological care if there are no obvious brain injuries, there are times when it may be necessary for treatment.

The nervous system can be impacted in a car accident, even if the collision is minor. Symptoms such as headaches, migraines, or numbness, tingling, and weakness in an extremity can be signs of a neurological issue, and as these issues can be serious, contact Florida Physical Medicine for an appointment as soon as possible.

Orthopedics

Orthopedics deals with issues and injuries that involve the musculoskeletal system. Injuries such as broken or fractured bones; muscle strains or ruptures; tendon strains, tears or rupture; or ligament strains, tears or rupture require specialized care.

Early detection and treatment of orthopedic injuries are crucial in improving your mobility and reducing your pain. Symptoms after a car accident that require orthopedic care can include restricted range of motion, pain or headaches, abnormal prickling or burning skin sensations, sagging shoulder or joint, inability to lift something, lack of mobility, grinding sensation during movement, bump or deformity near the injury, or pain, bruising or swelling.

Florida Physical Medicine specializes in diagnosing orthopedic injuries and their treatment and care. Treatment can include physical evaluation, x-rays, splinting, casting, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or surgery.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a treatment option that includes reducing pain and increasing mobility through exercise. It is a gentle way to keep your injured body part remains mobile, which helps ensure it does not heal in an incorrect position.

Florida Physical Medicine offers physical therapy custom tailored to your unique injury, which can help increase mobility and restore function. Physical therapists work from an evaluation put together by a medical doctor to help you recover from your injury from an auto accident.

Benefits of Seeing an Auto Accident Doctor

When you experience an auto accident, it’s best to see a doctor who specializes in car accident injuries. They will provide a personalized care plan that completely suits your individual needs and have a deep understanding of the nature of auto accident injuries, which family doctors don’t always have. They also have comprehensive treatment plans that will lead you on the road to recovery.

Auto accident doctors also have the expertise to successfully work with and bill with your insurance company, something that many family practitioners aren’t set up to do.

Florida Physical Medicine has all of these specialists in one location, enabling you to receive comprehensive treatment from a team of doctors and therapists who all work together to manage your care.

Get the quality medical care you deserve. Our specialists are committed to providing you with unmatched patient care and guide you on your road to recovery.
