After an auto accident, physical therapy is often the first step to recovery. Physical therapy is key for reducing pain and increasing mobility through exercise. Our physical therapists teach the patient how to treat and manage the condition, increase mobility, and most importantly, restore function.
If you have been in an accident, our physical therapists can build a unique treatment plan for your specific injuries. Contact Florida Physical Medicine today to begin feeling better.
Physical Therapy for Auto Accident Injuries
Physical therapy is often the first step in treating your injury after the collision. Physical therapy is a gentle way to ensure that the injured part remains mobile, and the tissues do not tighten and heal in the incorrect position.
The physical therapist will take the evaluation from the medical doctor and use this to create a custom treatment plan based on your unique injury.
Recovering from an Auto Accident with Physical Therapy
One of the main goals of physical therapy is restoring function. By keeping the injured part moving and stretching, you will not lose mobility. Another goal is to decrease pain. Although the injury may feel tight and stiff at first, with regular physical therapy sessions you will make improvements in both movement, strength and pain.
Along with your physical therapy, we have licensed massage therapists available in office who work closely with our physical therapists to provide you treatment.
