That’s right! Under Pressure Therapeutics is officially billing insurance! However, it is only currently for car accidents and workman’s compensation cases. We will slowly be introducing more insurance coverage throughout the year.
Everyone knows someone (or has been that someone) who has been in a car accident. If you are among the fortunate, you walk away from it. However, many don’t realize the long-term issues that come from even an impact as little as 10 mph! It only takes that much to cause soft tissue damage. Doctors at the emergency room will check for breaks, bleeding, etc, which is great; but they don’t pay much attention to your muscles and what they went through for that “little” fender bender. If you do damage at 10 mph, imagine the damage your muscles, tendons, and ligaments go through at higher speeds.
Good news: In the state of Colorado, it is required to have MedPay on your car insurance. Why is this good news? Because whether or not it is your fault in an accident, there is a minimum of $5,000 of coverage just for your physical care. This means that if you (or someone you know) were in a car accident, GET INTO MY OFFICE!! We can help you take care of your whiplash so it doesn’t snowball into you not being able to turn your head 15 years down the road! We can prevent your lower back from seizing up and causing pain down your legs in 5 years! We can get you healthy so you don’t have to know what it’s like to wake up with severe pain! Whiplash, especially, is a musculoskeletal condition that lies dormant and waits to rear its ugly head!
If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to ask! I am happy to answer any questions or concerns you might have about insurance.
