Burleigh Health Center & Rehab specializes in the treatment for injuries sustained in auto accidents. If you have recently been involved in a motor vehicle accident, please do the following:
- Seek medical attention immediately if you have any symptoms. The onset of symptoms is often linked to the severity of the injury. If your pain is initially severe, go to the emergency room immediately and then call our office to be scheduled.
- Seek follow-up care after going to the emergency room. The hospital emergency room is there to stabilize life threatening injuries. Once you are stable, you are often sent home with instructions to seek additional care in a few days. Call us, we are here to help.
- Apply ice over unbroken skin for 20 minutes several times per day over the next three days after an injury. This will help to control inflammation and will also speed up your recovery. The more quickly you can begin treatment, the better your long term prognosis for recovery.
- Keep your appointments.
