Physiotherapy after a car accident
There are multiple injuries that can result from car accidents with whiplash being one of the most common. At Integral Physiotherapy & Sports clinic, we will be able to diagnose your injury and help you rehabilitate from it as quickly and optimally as possible. When it comes to whiplash, many accident victims do not realize they have suffered an injury, as they may not feel pain until several days later. Whiplash is typically caused when drivers or passengers are hit from behind causing the neck to snap forward and backward in a violent, unexpected and unnatural motion.
I have been seeing Jade for the last year, after a Motor Vehicle Accident. SHE IS AMAZING! I always leave feeling so much better, she is very good at keeping you updated on your treatments, why she is having you do a certain exercise, and is the NEEDLE QUEEN!
There are several symptoms of whiplash with the most common being a stiff and painful neck. Some of the include:
- Low back, shoulder and arm or hand pain/numbness
- Blurred vision
- Ringing in the ears
- Memory or concentration problems
- Increased fatigue
- Bruising where your body was in contact with the seatbelt
If you suffer from any of these symptoms following a car crash it is recommended that you visit a doctor. Your doctor can then recommend Integral Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic to help with your symptoms. We will be able to assess your injuries and let you know when you should begin a rehabilitation program. The symptoms often persist for several weeks to a few months depending on the severity. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities after a week or two with minimal pain.
