Auto Accident Treatment
On average, there are six million automobile accidents in the United States every year. Of these six million, more than half of the people involved suffer some form of injury. Auto accident injuries are no joke. They come in many different forms and almost always require professional healthcare treatment. If you’ve recently been involved in an automobile accident, you need to see a doctor for an examination as soon as possible.
It doesn’t matter if you feel no pain or do not notice any loss of mobility immediately after the accident. Some auto accident injuries take a few days before they start displaying noticeable symptoms. By putting off treatment, the injury can grow worse and require more time for recovery.

Common treatments for auto accidents
The best treatment for you depends on the severity of your injury. Our physicians at Florida Spine and Joint can perform a comprehensive evaluation of your condition to determine what kind of treatment is necessary. Treatments we provide for auto accident injuries often include:
Chiropractic care is a method of healthcare for reducing pain and improving mobility through the manipulation of joints. Doctors of Chiropractic focus on conditions that affect your musculoskeletal and nervous systems, which are commonly injured in automobile accidents. This treatment is especially helpful for victims of whiplash or a concussion.
Severe automobile accidents cause musculoskeletal injuries that may require surgery for treatment. In these cases, you’ll want to see an orthopedic surgeon. Orthopedic surgeons specialize in surgeries to treat conditions that affect your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles. This may include your knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows, feet, hips and more.
Spinal surgery may be necessary in cases where an auto accident causes a herniated disc or other spinal injuries. These surgeries are performed by highly trained spinal surgeons who specialize in a variety of minimally invasive spinal procedures.
Interventional procedures are used to treat back pain and reduce the severity of symptoms. These procedures are minimally invasive. Many do not use much more than needles to access the spine.

"I had a partial knee replacement done with Dr. Tort from a car accident injury and he has been all around incredible since he first time I met him. The surgery was done with such perfection. He explained several times exactly what I was having done and assured me it was the best possible outcome for my situation. I trusted him and I’m so glad I did. Post surgery, I’ve seen him as many times needed. He has answered all my questions. I’m thankful for his competence as a doctor and care."
