Auto Related Injury
If you have been injured in an auto accident, it is important to take immediate action to help alleviate the pain and implement a course of treatment for your injuries. The most common injury from an auto accident is a “whiplash” injury. Whiplash injuries need to be taken very seriously, as sometimes the symptoms do not show up immediately after the accident. Seeking treatment within 14 days of the accident is also important to ensure the ability to use your PIP (personal injury protection) coverage for any treatment related to your accident.
Common complaints from an auto accident include neck pain, back pain, headaches, shoulder pain and problems with vision, dizziness and concentration. Physical therapy is effective in treating auto accident injuries using active treatments which includes evaluation by a double board certified Pain management doctor and different techniques used by the physical therapist to alleviate pain, regain strength and mobility in the affected area.
