Motor Verhicle Accident (MVA) Injuries
Although most individuals involved in an MVA recover within 2-3 weeks, it is not uncommon for many people to have lingering or recurring pain after the event.
Common lingering symptoms after a Motor Vehicle Accident:
• Neck/Shoulder Pain
• Back Pain
• Loss of range of motion
• Dizziness and balance difficulties
• Difficulty Walking
• Loss of strength and function
Start physical therapy as soon as the next day to aid in fast recovery.
Our physical therapist will work closely with your primary care physician, attorneys, and anyone involved in your care to make sure you get back to your normal daily activities.
It is very important that you see a physical therapist right away. Physical therapy interventions can help reduce the pain, inflammation, and swelling that could cause long term discomfort.
Starting a strengthening program as soon as your pain is properly managed is imperative in ensuring your ability to return to your pre-car accident level of activity.
