Studies indicate that most people in the United States will be in an auto accident at some point in their lives. Fortunately, physical therapy has been proven to be effective treatment for auto accident injuries. At Elite Physical Therapy, we are able to assist you with acute injures shortly after the accident, or chronic pain that has lingered for several months after an accident.
Injuries that commonly respond very favorably to physical therapy intervention include:
- Neck Pain / Whiplash
- Numbness and / or Tingling
- Back Pain/Sciatica
- Disc Injuries
- Shoulder / Arm Pain
- Leg / Knee Pain
The leading injury from rear end collision automobile accidents is whiplash, which can include such symptoms as stiffness, weakness, range of motion issues, headaches and pain to the shoulders, neck, back and joints. There may also be soft tissue injuries that often do not show up on x-rays, MRI or other diagnostic tests for which physical therapy is often beneficial.
