Car Accident Injuries
Getting into a car accident can undoubtedly be a traumatic experience. Not to mention, this situation can be made even worse if you sustain an injury. At Massapequa Pain Management and Rehabilitation, we understand how these injuries can impact one’s quality of life. That is why we offer physical therapy and chiropractic care to help you heal properly and get back to living pain-free!
Common Car Accident Injuries
Due to the traumatic and violent nature of car accidents, those involved in them are at risk for sustaining a wide range of injuries. While some can be minor, others can be debilitating and require physical therapy or chiropractic care to be corrected. If you’ve suffered any of the below due to a car accident, consider reaching out to our team for help right away:
- Neck strain.
- Back strain.
- Spine problems.
- Muscle contusions.
Physical therapy is a form of treatment in which the patient takes an active role in recovery. It is non-invasive and can be used to eliminate pain without the need for pain medication. After suffering an injury in a car accident, our team knows that the last thing you to go through is a treatment regimen that can bring even more complications. A physical therapist may perform manual therapy, custom exercises, or postural training to help alleviate your pain. This form of treatment is especially helpful with:
- Restoring strength in an injured area.
- Re-teaching the affected body parts how to work together for cohesive movement.
- Improving one’s flexibility and range of motion.
- Allowing patients to play an active role in recovery.
When the body is forcibly moved back and forth in a car accident, it can wreak havoc on the spine. If an alignment issue arises as a result of this, chiropractic care can help. A chiropractor specializes in correcting the misalignments of the spine that cause pain and discomfort. Through various mobilization and manipulation techniques, our chiropractor will work to re-align your spine, allowing you to find the relief you desperately need. Specific spine problems include:
- Pinched nerves.
- Herniated discs.
After being in a car accident, finding the right care is imperative when it comes to making a full recovery. If you’re ready to restore the quality of life that was taken from you in a car accident, contact our team at Massapequa Pain Management and Rehabilitation today!
