What Are The Common Injuries From Motor Vehicle Accidents?
All motor vehicle accidents are different. The injuries sustained can vary depending on the type of collision, your location within the vehicle, age, and pre-existing medical conditions. Some of the most common injuries associated with MVA’s are:
We offer manual therapy, exercise prescription, education, goal setting and functional rehabilitation to help you recover at each stage. In addition, we can utilize acupuncture, dry needling, concussion management, vestibular rehabilitation, thermal and electrical modalities, ultrasound, mechanical traction and massage therapy in your treatment.
Often, our patients benefit from ergonomic and body mechanic training to reduce strain to injured areas of the body. This will assist in the recovery process, and a comprehensive home program will help you return to a pre-accident level of activity.
Your physical therapist will tailor your plan of care based on your individual needs. It is essential to include the component of injury prevention before you are discharged from your physical therapy treatment because it helps to reduce susceptibility to sustaining future injuries or chronic conditions after your MVA. Our caring and knowledgeable team is here to help you ‘love getting better’ after your motor vehicle accident.
