If you’ve ever been in a car accident, you understand how auto injuries can have a devastating effect. They can result in a variety of complex injuries and symptoms, including whiplash, headaches, back pain, and injuries to other extremities. However, with the proper physical therapy treatment, we can relieve your pain and provide long-term relief.
Fort Meyers Physical Therapy for Car Accident Injuries
Injuries from car accidents often progress over time without the proper treatment, and the pain can make it challenging to get through the simplest of tasks. Many believe painkillers and a neck brace will eliminate the pain, but this method does very little to repair the underlying injury. Once we gather the necessary information about the type and severity of your accident, our physical therapists can determine the best treatment plan that will meet your specific needs. Our physical treatment plans are designed to eliminate pain, reduce swelling, improve mobility, and increase strength.
Car accidents are the number one cause of whiplash injury to the muscles, joints, ligaments, and discs of the cervical spine. Whiplash symptoms include neck pain, headaches, blurry vision, shoulder pain, and problems concentrating. Our team of expert physical therapists can help ease the pain by performing massages, stretches, stability exercises, hot and cold therapies, and other active treatments that strengthen the neck.
