Car Accident Rehabilitation

Motor vehicle accidents can cause all types of injuries from the minor to the severe. It is common to see everything from muscle strains and whiplash to fractures and joint injuries. Physical therapy is important for healing after a motor vehicle accident, as it helps to reduce muscle spasm and stiffness, improve range of motion, increase strength, and improve overall functional recovery.

Motor vehicle accidents can cause significant micro-tearing within muscles throughout the body. The damage can be confined to a specific area of the body or it can be more diffuse. The position of your body in the vehicle at the time of the accident can influence what areas of the body are most affected. Because of these muscle micro-injuries, symptoms following an accident can often last much longer then one would imagine. Gentle movement throughout the healing process is vital to ensuring the muscles tissue heals properly. Receiving prompt physical therapy treatment after an accident can help to reduce the impact of your injuries and help you heal faster. Don’t wait to seek treatment!
