Treatment after a car accident
If you have a car accident, you can get treatment regardless of your fault. In New Jersey, medical coverage is usually up to $ 250,000 if coverage is comprehensive. In some cases, you will be treated with your own insurance regardless whether you have an accidental injury lawyer. Most of the aftermath of injury from car accident does not appear at that time, but the body often gets worse over time. Aftereffects occur extensively, such as sprains, discs, temporomandibular joint pain, tears in the knee or shoulder ligaments in the muscles or ligaments. If you have any questions about the aftermath of a car accident, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you. Please call our hotline at 201-886-1200.
Initial treatment for the typical auto injury usually consists of painkillers and a neck brace. This approach does little to repair the underlying injury. Physical therapy is the primary method for repair and strengthening of damaged tissue and for avoiding excessive scar growth. The largest risk with an auto injury is not the injury that is blatantly obvious. Unfortunately, many people believe that the lack of immediate pain means that they are not suffering from an injury. Damage to the body, in terms of muscles, bones and the spine can manifest days or weeks after the accident.
Orthopedic care involves diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of injuries and diseases of musculoskeletal system of the body.

Orthopedic care helps individuals suffering from musculoskeletal disorders return to their normal life and can have pain-free activities.
This physical therapy treatment is designed especially for the needs of children. Our physical therapists help infants, children and teens to develop, regain and improve their ability to move. Depending on the age of the child, or the child's physical limitations, moving may be learning how to roll or to sit on his/her own. A treatment program is made specifically for each child using fun and educational activities. The child may need one-on-one sessions with a therapist, a home exercise program, special equipment to move, help managing care with other therapists and teachers and splints or casts to hold an arm or leg. Therapists use special equipment made just for children along with toys and play in order to encourage children to do their best in therapy.
Geriatrics is a specialty that focuses on health care of elderly people. It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. There is no set age at which patients may be under the care of a geriatrician or a physician who specializes in the care of elderly people. Rather, this decision is determined by the individual patient's needs, and the availability of a specialist.
