Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries
Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of injuries. There are estimated to be over 5 million motor vehicle accidents annually in the US. The damage after a car accident can be immense, common injuries include head and back injuries, vision problems, skull fractures and concussions, herniated disk, neck and chest injuries, whiplash, blunt force trauma, collapsed lungs and broken ribs.
There are many, many reasons to undergo therapy after you’ve been in a car crash. Therapy treatments support the recovery process. After a car accident, you may experience pain, reduced range of motion, headaches or stiffness. These symptoms may not appear right after a car accident but a few days later. Therapy helps you to keep pain symptoms under control, improve flexibility, increase strength and recover faster. It can also prevent long-term damage from a car accident, including migraines and chronic pain.
One of our practitioners will develop a personalized treatment plan targeted to your motor vehicle accident injuries. Early treatment also helps you avoid surgery. It strengthens ligaments, tendons, and muscles that protect the body’s structures and It’s been proven to be a much more cost-effective solution. At Vineyard Complementary Medicine we also help restore function in patients with old motor vehicle accident injuries. You can still benefit from physical therapy even if you had an injury years ago. Using comprehensive rehab techniques and strength training, a physical therapist can help you relieve pain associated with old injuries to improve your mobility and avoid relying on pain medications for relief.
