How Physical Therapy Can Help to Alleviate the Pain Caused by A Motor Vehicle Accident

Here at NorthEast Spine and Sports Medicine, we know that many violent and non-violent automobile accidents can result in severe whiplash, fractures, muscle tears and strains, as well as many other injuries. Whether you need surgery, or don’t need surgery after being in a motor vehicle accident, we want you to know that if you want to fully recover from any injuries or pain, you can get in touch with NorthEast Spine and Sports Medicine to receive physical therapy.

Physical Therapy is for More Than Just Sports or Work-related Injuries

If you were recently in a car, motorcycle, or truck accident and are having trouble regaining your flexibility and mobility, or are just suffering from constant pain, physical therapy is a great option for you.

One injury that our physical therapists excel in treating is whiplash.

Whiplash, which is a common neck injury victims of automobile accidents typically suffer from, damages the supporting ligaments and muscles in the neck. While pain from this injury is evident immediately, some victims may not experience pain until a few days later.

Physical therapy is one of the most effective treatment options for whiplash because the therapists will work to restore the proper movement and function of your damaged tissues. To alleviate the pain, you may be subjected to both passive and active physical therapy treatments that include:

  • Deep tissue massage to release tension
  • Cold and hot therapies to increase blood flow and bring nutrients to the area, and remove waste created by muscle spasms.
  • Ultrasound to reduce pain, muscle spasms, stiffness, and swelling.
  • Exercises to correct your posture.
  • And much more.

Aside from whiplash, physical therapy can also help with back injuries, loss of sensation or numbness in limbs, issues with balance and coordination all caused by a motor vehicle accident.

At NorthEast Spine and Sports Medicine, our physical therapists will make a care plan for you, will help your conditions from getting worse, and best of all, lessen your chance of having to receive surgery to relieve your pain. To learn more about how we can help you to recover with physical therapy after an automobile accident, please call the NorthEast Spine and Sports Medicine office closest to you, or fill out a contact form.
