Auto & Bike Accident Treatment
At Levin Therapeutics, we are experts at treating motor vehicle accident (MVA) injuries and our administrative staff are experts at filing the insurance paperwork. Let us lighten your load as you navigate the path to recovery.
If you have been in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) in Pennsylvania either as a pedestrian, driver, passenger or bicyclist, you are legally entitled to receive medical care. Pennsylvania is one of a dozen or so states that follow some form of a “no-fault” car insurance system. Under no-fault, after a car accident, your own car insurance coverage (specifically, your “personal injury protection” or “medical benefits” coverage) pays for medical treatment and other out-of-pocket losses incurred by anyone covered under the policy, up to coverage limits, regardless of who caused the accident. The law also allows you to seek motor vehicle accident care from the licensed health care practitioners of your choice.
How do I know whether I need help?
Toughing it out only leads to a lifetime of pain, limited range of motion or other issues that affect your quality of life. Sometimes symptoms take several months to “surface” after an accident, as the body starts the healing process. Learn to identify the common symptoms after an auto or bicycle accident and be sure to get help:
- Neck or shoulder pain and stiffness
- Low back pain
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Ringing in the ears or ear pain
- Blurred vision
- Poor sleep
- Difficulty with concentration or memory
- Pain or numbness in the arm and/or hand
- Sensations such as burning or pins and needles
- Pain or numbness in the arms or legs
Auto and bike accidents often have an emotional impact along with the physical injury. Integrated holistic medicine can support the nervous system as well as the physical body, allowing for healing of both physical and emotional stress from the accident.
After an accident, it’s important to seek clinical attention as soon as possible. Injuries often worsen over time. In fact, injuries can take days, weeks or months to fully manifest. Even seemingly minor accidents may cause damage to the body, damage that can result in lifelong difficulties if not corrected.
