Personal Injury

Most accident survivors sustain significant injuries that require medical attention. Among the essential remedies for the injuries is physical therapy. Therapy helps the affected body muscles, joints, and nerves to recover. However, obtaining the appropriate treatment is not easy, due to the multiple regulations that govern most physical therapy facilities.

Our highly experienced and well-trained clinical specialists assist all patients in the best way possible by analyzing their injuries and their causes.

Causes of Personal Injury Accidents

Patients suffer from personal injuries from different incidents that occur. However, some are more common than others, creating a recognizable trend on common injuries to treat. As a result, we are ready to help you manage a wide range of physical injuries depending on the cause. The most common types of injuries we treat include:

Flexible Modes of Payment for
Treatment are Available

Before considering taking on physical therapy treatment, one of your main concerns may be the costs involved. Sometimes, you cannot afford all the medical fees upfront, especially if your budget did not cater to the costs. Nevertheless, you do not have to worry about missing out on top quality treatment from inadequate funds. We value your well-being, so helping you make a full recovery is our top priority.

We have a flexible and friendly payment plans, including accepting an medical lien as you receive treatment. Essentially, a lien is a payment method that allows you to receive our services under the assurance that your attorney will settle the amount later.

This may be after you have settled your legal fees with the lawyer or as otherwise agreed. Thus, your attorney holds a lien against the compensatory amount you receive in court after your injury suit is concluded. Throughout the period that your lawyer holds a lien, you do not have to worry about making any payments, provided you follow all regulations and your physical therapy treatment plan requiring you to attend all you prescribed treatment sessions.

We work closely with the personal injury attorneys because most court cases will require you as the victim to provide medical documents as documentary evidence of receiving treatment. Further, courts expect you to take reasonable steps toward minimizing the risks you face after an accident, so you need to access medical services like physical therapy to that effect.

With the lien agreement, your attorney will have helped you access the required medical attention you need. In return, the strength of your case increases, making it more possible to win a personal injury claim in court.

Thus, if you do not have a personal injury attorney to assist you with the lien agreements and other important factors to your treatment, we are happy to refer trusted attorneys to you. They are available to offer services in your residential location, so you do not have to worry about driving to and from the attorney’s office to follow up on the personal injury agreements and court case progress.

What You Need to do Before Coming in for an Initial Evaluation

If you decide to seek physical therapy treatment from our facilities, you will need to take a few steps in readiness for your first visit to our clinic. We encourage our patients to undertake these few processes because it speeds up the process of going in to see the doctor. Subsequently, you will enjoy the efficiency of a well-organized medical registration process.

Firstly, you will visit our online website that is accessible at SuarezPT.com. Upon accessing the site, you will sign in and access the necessary paperwork needed during your first-time visit. After signing in, you can then download the documents, print them out and bring them with you during your first appointment.

These documents require you to fill in your personal information, including your name, phone number, and other necessary contact details. Moreover, we will request your insurance information and retain it in our records for future reference. We emphasize the importance of providing your insurance details because your attorney may decide to drop your case.

Consequently, you would not have anyone to hold a lien for your treatment, imposing an unexpected financial load on you. Therefore, you can avoid unforeseen problems by including your insurance information. This way, we can send invoices to your medical insurance company in case of any mishaps with your lien agreement.

Common Diagnoses for Patients

When you meet with our physical therapy specialists, they will diagnose the conditions you face from your injury based on your initial evaluation reports. Over the years, we have handled multiple cases diagnosed, such as vertebral discogenic lesions that cause lower/upper radiculopathy pain.

Additionally, most patients have been diagnosed with traumatic acute cervical strain, as well as lumbar strain. For traumatic cervical strain pain, most affected patients are unable to look up or raise their arms with ease. Some also find looking over their shoulders to be difficult, while others may even be unable to drive. Most causes of the injury are from car accidents resulting in whiplash, a condition that affects the stability of your neck. Sometimes, the conditions also come from maintaining improper sitting posture, creating a progressive trauma.

On the other hand, lumbar strains occur from an injured lower back, or when the muscles surrounding the lower back receive microtears from excessive stretching. As a result, patients experience extreme pain in the lower back, discomfort around the buttocks, and unpredictable spasms on the surrounding lower back muscles.

Formulating a Personalized Treatment Plan for You

When your physical therapist practitioner determines the exact cause and nature of your injury, he/she will design a unique treatment plan that suits your medical needs. To do this, the practitioner factors in several considerations, including the severity of your injuries, and the expected duration of recovery.

Therefore, the best treatment plan is developed based on the frequency of undertaking physical therapy and the total duration you will need to undertake it for. Specific timelines will be available after your physical therapist analyzes your case to ensure that you undergo enough therapy sessions that will help you achieve the best results.

For example, a patient who requires therapy after a motor vehicle accident may have to undertake physical therapy twice a week for eight weeks. Hence, the total number of physical therapy sessions for the patient to attend before the patient fully recovers is eighteen.

When you begin your treatment, you may feel like the processes are too strenuous on your body, creating even more pain than you had after sustaining the personal injuries. While you may find it easier to miss several physical therapy sessions and ‘recover’ at home, we advise against it because it causes setbacks on your treatment journey. You may also incur additional financial liabilities after chronically missing your treatment sessions; moreover, placing your personal injury case on the line.

Therefore, we recommend trusting the healing process and the physical therapy specialists who treat you during your physical therapy treatment journey. Eventually, you will begin to notice improvements in the problem areas until you make a complete recovery.

The Home Physical Therapy Option

In some cases, our patients are unable to access our facilities from different factors. For example, if you are at a high risk of developing complications on the possible exposure to COVID-19, we recommend seeking the home care option. Additionally, some patients may be under strict instructions not to drive, especially after undergoing spinal surgery or when dealing with orthopedic lower extremity post-surgical precautions.V

Before we can send our specialists to your home for the therapy sessions, we will require a medical doctor’s written prescription and recommendation to avail the option. This requirement helps us define the diagnosis, specific timeframe, restrictions, and precautions our specialists require during your home treatment and for ease of transitioning you into one of our outpatient clinical settings for a quick recover.

Was your vehicle “totaled” after your MVA? Not to worry. Why wait in pain at home? Our home-based physical therapists can immediately begin treat your pain at home while you secure transportation with a rental vehicle or other means of transportation.

Upon approval of the home-based physical therapy option, we will then send our physical therapist to your house to conduct an in depth initial evaluation and prescribe the appropriate treatment. Each session will last the same amount of time it would last if you were in our facility. Thus, you do not have to worry about receiving substandard treatment at home.

The Role of Liaison Personnel

Among our members of staff is the liaison personnel / liens manager who handles most of the administrative functions. Therefore, you can direct any questions regarding which one of our locations you would like to receive your initial physical therapy evaluation and subsequent treatments, what MD specialist you will be seeing, and/or where you imaging has been approved.

The liaison personnel can also provide financial information to you, including any balances owed to the physical therapy facility. The details you receive will be useful when you need to organize your finances or determine the lien against settlement with your attorney.

Further, the SPT liaison is mandated to follow up on any missed physical therapy sessions and ask for accountability on your side. This includes providing you with information on the fees you will have to pay for missing your sessions.

Lastly, the SPT liaison can also organize meetings with your injury lawyer to discuss your lien agreement. The discussions may also touch on additional outgoing medical referrals that should be factored in the lien. Essentially, the liaison upholds an open line of communication between our facility and your injury attorney.
