Car Accident Injury Therapy

When you have been injured in an accident, the road to recovery can be long and challenging. This process can be daunting and discouraging at times but you have a support team including your lawyer, doctors, and other healthcare providers who will help you all along the path to recovery. Because physical therapy is directly related to your injury, you can pursue compensation for its cost through your personal injury claim. Your lawyer will work closely with you to ensure you receive any and all care necessary related to your accident.

Commonly treated conditions following an accident:

One of the most commonly treated conditions following an accident is Whiplash. Symptoms of whiplash related conditions include, but are not limited to:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Headache
  • Shoulder pain
  • Visual problems
  • Tinnitus – ringing in the ear
  • Dizziness
  • Concussion
  • Neurologic symptoms- mainly in the arms – numbness, tingling and pain
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Memory and concentration loss

If you are suffering from any of these symptoms following your accident, you may be experiencing a whiplash related condition. It is important to see your doctor to get a prompt and accurate diagnosis and to rule out broken bones or other damage that can cause or worsen symptoms.

What Causes the Condition

Whiplash typically occurs when your head is forcefully and quickly thrown backward and then forward. This motion can injure bones in the spine, disks between the bones, ligaments, muscles, nerves, and other tissues of the neck. This injury can result from:

  • Auto accidents
  • Physical Abuse or Assault
  • Contact Sports
