Physical Therapy After a Car Accident
After sustaining a car accident injury, physical therapy (PT) can help your body heal and regain strength so that you can get back to your life as quickly as possible. In addition to helping you heal faster, physical therapy can help you see a better outcome from your medical care. It can reduce or prevent the long-term effects on your body that many injuries leave behind. Even with catastrophic injuries, physical therapy can help you recover to the fullest extent possible.
Injuries that Commonly Require PT
Physical therapy can treat many different types of car accident injuries. Some of the most common injuries that require PT include:
- Back injuries – Back injuries can cause pain, stiffness, nerve damage, and limited range of motion. PT can often help relieve back pain and, in many cases, restore normal range of motion.
- Whiplash – Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries. It occurs when the head and neck are jolted forwards and then suddenly backward or to the side. This damages tendons and ligaments in the neck, causing severe pain, stiffness, and permanent problems. However, PT can drastically reduce these symptoms and restore a normal range of motion.
- Knee injuries – The force of impact in an auto accident causes a person’s knees to bend in unnatural positions, causing pain, swelling, stiffness, ligament tears, and other knee injuries. PT can alleviate pain and swelling, improve strength, and restore normal function.
If you’ve been involved in a car accident and sustained an injury, don’t assume that it will heal, and you’ll get back to normal. Most people who think this don’t return to “normal.”
How to Receive Compensation
The compensation you can obtain after an accident is dependent upon many factors. The state you are injured in, the vehicle you are injured in, and whether you are the driver or passenger all play a role in your compensation.
