Auto Injury Providers

Even in mild accidents, like fender benders, your body absorbs a significant amount of force. The neck, shoulders and back and associated soft tissue often sustain the greatest impact from an accident. Injuries like whiplash is often not noticed until a day or two after the accident. Injuries left untreated, can cause a series of long term issues as your spine, muscles and ligaments heal in an abnormal position. Victims of auto injuries that do not have their injuries truly evaluated and treated will ultimately become long term chronic pain patients for the rest of their lifetime.  Below we provided information and helpful tips that we truly believe will minimize the uncertainty or delay for treatment after a traumatic event.

Important Steps After Your Auto Accident

1.Schedule a Medical Evaluation:

It is extremely important to seek a medical evaluation immediately. Auto insurance companies actually take into account the time at which you seek medical treatment. For example, seeking treatment three weeks after your accident might be too late; which can greatly compromise your case. While some people go directly to an Emergency Room or Urgent Care, others may wait as they may not feel their symptoms right away. Despite the assumption that you may not be critically injured, it is still beneficial to seek a medical evaluation.  Refer to the section below on Auto Injury Providers to understand ideal providers you should contact to schedule an evaluation.

2. Understand the Benefits to Diagnostic Imaging:

Our office can provide a thorough physical examination along with evaluating the need for further imaging; if not already completed at the ER (like an MRI or Xray). Based upon the radiology report findings, a treatment plan will be established to quickly alleviate pain/stiffness along with stabilizing and strengthening the problems caused by your accident.

3. Understand the Benefits to Conservative Treatment

It is common for most injuries to be referred to conservative therapy as part of your treatment plan. It is important to attend those recommended appointments for Physical Therapy or Chiropractic as ordered by your provider.  Any gap in care or missed appointments will reflect negatively on your case to your auto insurance carrier. Our office works in conjunction with other highly qualified medical professionals in the areas of; chiropractic, physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture or surgical evaluations to ensure you establish a detailed plan that is obtainable for your healing journey.

Auto Injury Providers & Case Management

 In addition to the urgency of seeking medical care immediately following an auto accident in which you have sustained injuries, it is important to understand what type of medical providers specialize in auto injuries. While many providers may advertise treating for these injuries, it is important to know WHO will be handling your case from a medical provider perspective. The medical doctor is the key to your case. Without a qualified auto injury provider, patients do not have a case at all. Your medical provider needs to legitimately prove that you underwent the trauma of your auto accident, providing great detail as to how it has impacted your daily life. An auto injury doctor, that specializes not only in these types of injuries, but has been involved in multiple cases will know how to document your medical diagnosis, treatment plan and future medical treatment needs, if reasonable.

I was referred to Dr. Latch and his team by my doctor. After many years of back pain due to an injury in the military, my current job as a police officer was becoming more and more difficult. I saw Dr. Latch and not only is he one of the kindest people I have ever encountered, he is a doctor that listens and cares and those are hard to come by these days. I was terrified to get my procedure done and after talking to him and telling him about my fears, I went into the room and laid on the table confident that I would be taken care of. Although uncomfortable and a little painful, Dr. Latch and his assistant talked to me about my job, my family, joked with me, and made my experience as comfortable as possible. Within a couple days my pain I had been dealing with for so long was nearly completely gone. For the first time in just over 6 years, I felt like I had my life back.

Every time I walk into the office I am greeted by name and with a smile. I am asked how not only I am doing but my son who they have never met. I look forward to my check ups and seeing the staff and I can’t say that for any other doctor I have met. They are ALL amazing and I wouldn’t trust my spine with anyone else!!

I've had one injection go into my neck, so far, and it went flawlessly. They went over everything and made sure to answer any questions I may have had. The injection itself was very easy to get through. Everyone I have met that works that is awesome; professional but family-like. Thanks y'all!
