How can physiotherapy help after a car accident?

After a car accident, you may experience pain, reduced range of motion, headaches, or stiffness. There are many, many reasons to undergo physiotherapy 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 helps you to keep pain symptoms at bay, improve flexibility, increase strength and recover faster. The sooner you get physiotherapy 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 after a motor vehicle accident include:

Reducing pain
Physiotherapy helps reduce pain. Therapeutic exercises pump oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the injury site and enhance healing. Every exercise and stretch prescribed by a physiotherapist has a specific goal for recovery and improves function and mobility.

Restoring function
Physiotherapy 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 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.

Curing vertigo
Physiotherapists can even treat vertigo due to a car accident. In as little as one treatment, they can fix a dysfunction in the vestibular system.

Avoiding Surgery
Physiotherapy also helps you avoid surgery. It strengthens ligaments, tendons, and muscles, which protect the body’s structures. It’s also a much more cost-effective solution.

Types of physiotherapy 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. Bodiworks takes a holistic approach to healing for car accident injuries.
