Why Physical Therapy after an auto injury?
There are many reasons to participate in physical therapy after you’ve been in a car crash. You may now be experiencing pain, reduced range of motion, headaches or stiffness. Symptoms do not always appear immediately after a car accident, but may have a more gradual onset presenting days later with lasting effects. Physical therapy helps you to keep pain symptoms at bay, improve flexibility, increase strength and recover faster. It can also prevent long-term damage from a car accident, including migraines and chronic pain. The sooner you get physical therapy after a car wreck, the more likely you are to have a pain-free life. As a matter of fact, a Medscape study revealed that those who didn’t receive physical therapy were much more likely to suffer from degenerative disc disease.
Physical therapy also helps reduce pain. Its exercise pumps oxygen, blood and nutrients to the injury site and enhances healing. Every exercise and stretch has a specific goal for recovery and improves function and mobility. A MAXX physical therapist will develop a personalized treatment plan targeted to your car injury. Physical therapy also helps you avoid surgery. It strengthens ligaments, tendons, and muscles, which protect the body’s structures. It’s also a much more cost-effective solution.
Physical therapy can also restore function in patients with old car accident injuries. You can still benefit from physical therapy even if you had an injury years ago. Using cardiovascular rehab techniques and strength training, it can help relieve old pain and improve mobility. Plus, it’s a non-invasive treatment, and you won’t wind up having to rely on pain medications for relief.
Physical therapists can even treat vertigo due to a car accident. In as little as one treatment, they can fix a dysfunction in the vestibular system. Types of physical therapy include massage, manual manipulation, ultrasound, ice and cold therapy, specific exercises, targeted massage, stretching and aquatic therapy. It’s a holistic approach to healing after being in a car accident. In addition to treatment after a car accident injury, physical therapists can provide services for pulmonary rehab, neurologic rehab, cardiovascular, orthopedic and post-op care.
