Auto accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, and just as fast, you can be seriously injured. Even if you walk away from an accident, you may still be injured and should seek a professional examination. If you are in pain after a recent car accident, do not dismiss it. Common accident injuries include whiplash, concussions, bone fractures, and soft tissue damage (strains and sprains). A physical therapist can assist you in regaining mobility and reduce pain.
At Capstone Physical Therapy, we recognize that injuries are painful and stressful. We will work with you to restore your mobility, strength, and activity level to your pre-injury status. You will have a comprehensive initial evaluation and assessment to determine your individual treatment plan. Physical therapy after motor vehicle collisions may include treatments to reduce pain and muscle spasms, manual therapy techniques to restore mobility, exercises to improve flexibility and strength, and education regarding aggravating factors and neuromuscular re-education.
