Why Do I Need Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is a great way to help you recover faster from injuries after a car accident.  It can speed up recovery time and produce better outcomes for overall recovery.  Physical therapy helps prevent any long term effects such as chronic pain from occurring to ease pain and provide relief.  After a car accident, you may experience broken bones, dislocated joints, back or neck pain, or other various injuries or conditions.  If these problems are not addressed in a timely manner with effective treatment, they may worsen over time lead to more health problems such as chronic pain.  But physical therapy is a way to prevent the body from incurring further damage.  It can help prevent more harm and promote healing by increasing range of motion and strengthening the muscles, ligaments, and tendons in order to heal quicker and prevent further injury in the future.  There are many incredible benefits of physical therapy after a car accident that you can experience firsthand at AICA Orthopedics when you consult with our highly qualified physical therapists on staff.
