Often, individuals experience little or no symptoms initially following a car accident but subsequently suffer from a variety of symptoms including pain and decreased function and mobility. Often the trauma associated with these types of injuries takes days and sometimes weeks to manifest itself. That is why it is important to receive immediate and appropriate treatment following an auto accident. The longer you delay treatment the harder it may be to get back to normal.
After an accident, we can help patients recover from the following:
- Painful whiplash and neck strains, which can lead to severe headaches and muscle spasms
- Back injuries that can limit motion and cause nerve pain
- Numbness and loss of sensation in the limbs
Although not the same as a physical therapist, massage therapists helps patients in a similar way by treating muscle and soft tissue injuries after a car accident. Many patients enjoy the experience of massage therapy because they believe it allows them to get better in tune with their body and actually understand which pressure points are causing pain.
