No Fault and Auto Accident Injuries
NO-FAULT AND AUTO ACCIDENT INJURIES at Function Better Physical Therapy Mega Center in Yorkville, NY
When you are injured in an automobile accident, it is important to have a medical examination, but also a comprehensive examination by a Licensed Physical Therapist.
Physical Therapists are experts in the interaction between your Brain, Spinal Cord, Nerves, Muscles, and Bones, and we often find disruptions and abnormalities that others may not.
When to Go to Physical Therapy After a Car Accident
Most people have a car accident at some point, either as a driver or passenger. Most are fender benders without serious injuries, but even minor injuries can be painful.
Fortunately, most people recover from car accident injuries without chronic pain or ongoing disability. Physical therapy is an effective first-line treatment for pain, mobility issues, and stiffness after a car accident.
Do I Need Physical Therapy After My Car Accident?
Your doctor will often directly prescribe physical therapy after a car accident. But even if you don’t have a script, you can choose to get a physical therapy assessment. Here are some reasons you may decide to get an initial assessment at Function Better Physical Therapy Mega Center in Yorkville, NY.
- Pain that lingers after the first few days
- Trouble getting to sleep, staying asleep, or waking early
- Trouble concentrating or brain fog
- Limited range of motion in your neck, back, shoulder, or any other joint
- Generalized weakness or fatigue
- Headaches or migraines
- Stiff or sore muscles or joints
- Muscle spasms
- Unexplained numbness and/or tingling
- Just not feeling “right”
These signs and symptoms may indicate typical car accident injuries. Without treatment, you could feel worse over time, resulting in chronic pain or disability.
Delays in Some Symptoms or Injuries
After a severe car accident, there may be obvious signs of immediate trauma. But not all injuries show up right away.
Watch for symptoms developing over the next few days and share the details with your physical therapist. Pain is a vital cue that something in the body needs attention.
