Recovering from an Auto Accident?
If so, please know that unfortunately, this is very normal.
In fact, most auto insurances completely cover the cost of psychological treatment after an accident.
Most people are too hard on themselves, wondering why they can't just "get over it" and go on with life as it was before. Even friends and family don't always understand the impact of an accident, and can often say things that feel critical instead of supportive.
Yet it is often truly difficult to "bounce back" from an accident without professional help. Auto accidents can be extremely traumatizing... Because they are unpredictable, they can shake us to our very core.. Additionally, sometimes physical pain, loss of work, or head injury associated with an accident can make recovery even more ellusive.
Common symptoms after a collision include:
* general anxiety
* depressed/ low mood
* excessive worry about safety
* driving phobia
* panic attacks
* anger and irritability
* poor concentration/ loss of work productivity
* full blown PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)
* flashbacks of the accident scene
* relationship difficulties caused by mood fluctuations
* emotional distress related to injury and pain
* headaches, memory and/or cognitive difficulties caused by whip lash, concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Car insurances generally cover therapy for these symptoms free of charge!
Motorists are required to have PIP (personal injury protection) insurance, which covers services related to your accident. This insurance entitles you to psychological counseling to reduce accident-related concerns, just as it entitles you to related chiropractic and physical therapy services.
Here at Park Avenue Psychotherapy Associates we offer both counseling and biofeedback services in order to alleviate your symptoms as quickly and completely as possible. The type of biofeedback we use (also called neurofeedback) is extremely helpful in reducing anxiety, insomnia, headaches and TBI.
We realize the extent to which an accident can interfere with daily life, and we do everything possible to help you get your life back on track.
We are adept at obtaining proper PIP insurance authorizations, and provide documention of symptoms and treatment in a format that is easily understood and legally sound.
