Physical Therapy after Car Accidents
After an auto accident, passengers and drivers alike might have serious musculoskeletal problems that can affect the way they live for the rest of their lives. The pain and aches from the auto accident injuries might keep you or your loved ones from doing the activities you love.
At Layton Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine, we believe in therapeutic exercises that will alleviate the pain you are experiencing and give you back your full range of motion in the injured area. In most cases, if a patient comes in to our office shortly after the auto accident, we can promote a patient’s full recovery.
Common Injuries Resulting from Auto Accidents
As physical therapists, we help patients recover from all types of musculoskeletal injuries. However, in regard to car accidents, we specialize in creating individualized rehabilitation programs for:
- Neck injury or pain
- Back injury or pain
- Cervical whiplash
- General aches and pains that resulted from the accident
After you are in a car accident, you might not realize that you have been injured. Because auto accidents are often very traumatic, your body might release endorphins and adrenaline to keep you from feeling the pain. If you do notice later that some injuries might have resulted from the car accident, remember that the sooner you get treatment, the better chance you have at full recovery.
If you have been in a auto accident and are experiencing musculoskeletal pain or stiffness in any area, call Layton Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine at (801)-896-9624!
