Many people find themselves referred to physical therapy treatment after being injured in an accident. Frequently, these accidents are car accidents. If you have never participated in injury rehab before, you might be wondering where you need to start. The good news is that Physical Therapy Now is here to guide you through the process. We have a staff of experienced professionals who will create a treatment plan that caters to your specific needs.
How We Can Help You After An Accident
There are several benefits to physical therapy treatment. It is more than improving mobility, although that is a large part of what we do. Physical therapy treatments focus on the whole person and the way each moving part connects and affects the other parts of the body. For example, if your knee was injured, the primary focus of your treatment will be on restoring your knee to full health.
However, we will also pay attention to how your knee connects to and affects the functioning in other parts of your body. It is our goal to use movement and other available treatments to accelerate your healing, manage your pain, improve your mobility, and strengthen your muscles and joints.
What To Expect From Treatment
When you schedule your first appointment with our staff, we will review your medical records and doctor recommendations and create a treatment plan that is right for you. Your treatment plan will include an appointment schedule and the therapies that we recommend for your recovery. Additionally, we will also check your insurance coverage and will thoroughly communicate any financial obligations you may have. In many cases, there are no financial obligations, so you must reach out to our team so we can accurately review your insurance.
Recovering from car accident injuries can take time, so you must be patient with yourself and allow your body to heal at its own pace. Your therapist will adjust your treatment plan accordingly as you progress.
Depending on your injury, your therapist might recommend one or more of the following therapies:
- Exercise Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Aquatic Therapy
- Laser Therapy
- Home Therapy
