If your looking for a physical therapist close to Orlando, Altamonte Springs has an excellent option!
When people hear about the city of Orlando, their immediate response nearly always involves a particularly popular theme park and resort (or two), best known for animated characters, live-action heroes, and fairy-tale princesses. And while Walt Disney World and Universal Studios are certainly huge tourist attractions that generate several millions of dollars for the local economy, there is so much more to the Orlando area.
We’re proud to be one of the small businesses that add to this booming city, and Physical Therapy Now in Altamonte Springs (located just outside of Orlando) offers services to meet any physical rehab needs you may have.
The Area Near Orlando
The portion of central Florida near Orlando is an up-and-coming area, filled with beautiful suburban towns such as Maitland, Fern Park, Wekiva Springs, Winter Springs, Winter Park, Fairview Shores, Goldenrod, Lake Mary, Apopka, Pine Hills, Altamonte Springs, and so many more…all within about 10 miles of Orlando.
And, with all of those towns close by, there is plenty of excitement and recreation to be found, even outside of the city of Orlando. For example, there are tons of parks and outdoor attractions in the area, including Wekiva Springs State Park, Crane’s Roost Park, Rock Springs Run State Reserve, Lake Lotus Nature Park, Lakes Jessup, and Monroe Reservation Areas, the Central Florida Zoo, and Botanical Gardens, Lake Apopka and its North Shore, Mead Botanical Garden, Harry P. Leu Gardens, and the University of Central Florida Arboretum, just to name a few. Not to mention, attractions like Altamonte Springs’ Merrill Park Recreation Center, 28 acres of land along the Little Wekiva River and home to lighted softball fields and volleyball courts, a fitness trail, picnic areas and facilities, and a children’s playground.
All those things to do are excellent, but that also means an increased risk for the likelihood of an unforeseen injury or accident.
Car Accidents in Central Florida
As with any up-and-coming, populated area, central Florida’s roads are the settings for quite a few car accidents. The two counties that are home to the cities and towns listed above–Orange and Seminole–see their fair share of auto accidents each year. The car crash numbers from 2020, unfortunately, bear that out:
- Orange County: 23,263 total crashes resulting in 18,320 injuries
- Seminole County: 5,692 total crashes resulting in 4,000 injuries
- Total: 28,955 total crashes resulting in 22,320 injuries
Busy roads in the area include Interstate-4 (also known as I-4 and, more unfortunately, the Haunted Highway), which runs from Tampa through central Florida and east to Daytona Beach, and was named the most dangerous interstate highway in the entire country in 2016, with an average of 1.41 fatalities per mile.
There’s also the Florida Turnpike, which runs through some of Orlando’s western and southern suburbs; State Roads 408, 528, 50, and 400; and plenty of other busy roadways throughout the region that contribute to the accident numbers above.
