After a car accident, you may experience pain, reduced range of motion, headaches, or stiffness.
There are many, many reasons to undergo physiotherapy and chiropractic after you’ve been in a car crash, as it supports the recovery process and can also prevent long-term damage from a car accident, including migraines and chronic pain.
Keep in mind that not all symptoms may not appear right after a car accident. Physiotherapy and chiropractic help you to keep pain symptoms at bay, improve flexibility, increase strength, and recover faster.
The sooner you get physiotherapy and chiropractic after a car wreck, the more likely you are to have a pain-free life. As a matter of fact, a Medscape study revealed that those who didn’t receive Physiotherapy were much more likely to suffer from degenerative disc disease.
Specific benefits to physiotherapy and chiropractic after a motor vehicle accident include:
Physiotherapy and chiropractic also help you avoid surgery. It strengthens ligaments, tendons, and muscles, which protect the body’s structures. It’s also a much more cost-effective solution.
Our physiotherapists or chiropractors can even treat vertigo due to a car accident. In as little as one treatment, they can fix a dysfunction in the vestibular system.
Physiotherapy and chiropractic can also restore function in patients with old car accident injuries, even if you haven’t been in one recently. You can still benefit from physiotherapy and chiropractic even if you had an injury years ago. Using cardiovascular rehab techniques and strength training, it can help relieve old pain and improve mobility. Plus, it’s a non-invasive treatment, and you won’t wind up having to rely on pain medications for relief.
Physiotherapy and chiropractic help reduce pain. Therapeutic exercises pump oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the injury site and enhance healing. Every exercise and stretch prescribed by a physiotherapist or a chiropractor has a specific goal for recovery and improves function and mobility. Our Toronto physiotherapist will develop a personalized treatment plan targeted to your car injury.
Types of physiotherapy and chiropractic treatments used to treat motor vehicle accident injuries include massage therapy, manual manipulation, ultrasound, ice and cold therapy, specific exercises, targeted massage, stretching, and aquatic therapy.
