The customized plan will focus on the necessary target areas to ensure a smoother transition to recovery. The goal of physical therapy and rehabilitation is to help you become pain-free and not dependent on medications to mediate discomfort you may be feeling after your accident.
Specific benefits to physiotherapy, and/or seeing a kinesiologist after a motor vehicle accident include:
- Reducing Pain. Therapy can help reduce pain. Manual therapy and therapeutic exercises pumps oxygen, blood and nutrients to the injury site and enhances healing. Every exercise and stretch prescribed by a physiotherapist has a specific goal for recovery and improves function and mobility. Our therapist will develop a personalized treatment plan targeted to your injury.
- 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 rehab 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. Kinesiologists can even treat vertigo due to a car accident. Frequently – in as little as one treatment, they can fix a dysfunction in the vestibular system.
- Avoiding Surgery. Therapy 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.
Additionally, another goal is to learn the range of motion limitations and restore them through active rehabilitation. Our Kinesiologists’ work will prioritize learning any potential barriers you may have with movement and educate you on the importance of integrating exercises into your daily routine.
