Studies indicate that most people in the United States will be in an auto accident at some point in their lives. Symptoms following an auto accident can range from mildly bothersome to debilitating. Fortunately, physical therapy has proven to be an effective treatment for auto accident injuries. At Stride Physical Therapy, we will help you reduce both acute symptoms (pain present shortly after the accident), and chronic pain that has lingered for several months.
Injuries that commonly respond well to physical therapy include:
- Neck Pain / Whiplash
- Back Pain/Sciatica
- Numbness and/or Tingling
- Disc Injuries
- Shoulder / Arm Pain
- Leg / Knee Pain
The leading injury from rear-end collision automobile accidents is whiplash. Symptoms often include stiffness, weakness, range of motion limitation, headaches, and pain in the shoulders, neck, back, and joints. There may also be soft tissue injury that may not show up on x-ray, MRI, or other diagnostic tests. Physical Therapy can help identify and correct these injuries.
