Automobile Accident Injuries
Automobile Accident Injuries are unique in that they can plague your life for months and even years after the accident occurred.
Though often associated with broken bones and post-surgery recovery, physical therapy is so much more than that. In fact, we treat pulmonary systems with cardiovascular therapy when lung capacity is reduced due to bruised or broken ribs, and we perform neurological therapy when brain trauma adversely affects your sense of balance, strength, coordination and vision. Of course, we also deal with whiplash victims and those suffering with aches and pains as a results of weak muscle groups which often arise from sudden jolts experienced in automobile accidents.
Common crash-related injuries patients complain of when involved in an automobile accident:
In the event of an accident, it is wise to have a physical performed by either a physician or physical therapist to assess possible injury or damage to your neck, spine and major joints. Scar tissue often builds up along injured muscles and along tendons and joints prolonging recovery if not caught and dealt with immediately after the incident. When aches and pains are ignored, bad habits in posture and mobility may form by overcompensating for weak or injured muscles and joints resulting in long-term damage such as back pain stemming from an unaligned spine originating from an aching hip whose tale-tell sign was a limp from bruising in the knee. It may sound far-fetched, but there is not much we haven't seen through the years, especially when dealing with automobile collisions.
