Dealing With  Insurance Companies and Attorneys

What should you do if you have an accident?

  • Exchange information: Make sure you exchange driver’s licenses and insurance information. Obtain contact information and get a police report as needed.
  • Seek medical attention: Regardless of pain levels and even if you don’t need an EMT, follow up immediately with an integrated medical practice. Seek help quickly to speed up recovery.
  • Seek legal advice: Contacting an attorney as soon as possible will greatly increase your chances of obtaining a fair settlement.
  • Continuity of care: Make sure you keep all your doctor appointments, so your doctor can keep adequate documentation of all your progress for the personal injury lawyer. This will increase the chances of a positive outcome in your case.

Getting The Right Treatment

Car wrecks distribute the impact over the part of the body that is not restrained by a seat belt – the head and neck. This results in micro-tears in tissues that heal with inflexible scar tissue. Some patients try to treat these aches and pains by themselves using ibuprofen or other pain medications, which treat the pain, but not tissue damage. Additionally, these pain medications can increase the risk of ulcers and heart attacks. Cortisone injections may also be used, but relief is temporary, and often results in further joint degeneration. Patients may be told they need surgery, which is invasive, has long rehabilitation times, and carries the risk of infection and nerve damage. Because of these factors, CITY offers regenerative medicine, which uses stem cells (amniotic allograft) to heal the body. Regenerative medicine is a great all-natural alternative to surgery and pharmaceuticals. If you have suffered an injury as the result of an auto accident, consult with one of our medical providers to see if regenerative medicine is an option for you.

At CITY, we believe that good health is one of your most valuable assets, and your healthcare provider should be your partner. We offer physical and regenerative medicine, and use cutting edge technology. Our experienced team of physicians and massage therapists help patients in downtown Phoenix and Mesa meet this goal.
