If you’ve ever been in an auto accident before, whether severe or minor, it’s very scary. Many emotions run though your head, and sometimes you don’t realize the extent of your injuries until days, or even weeks later. When the adrenaline kicks in following an auto accident, you may not realize you’ve even hurt yourself. It’s really important to see your medical doctor following any type of car accident, even if you don’t feel hurt. Your doctor will be able to assess you for any internal injuries and refer you to a specialist if needed.
The physical therapists at Hohman Rehab are all doctorates and trained to work with medical doctors and auto accident patients to achieve a common goal – return to your prior level of function. We are experts with the musculoskeletal system and many injuries resulting from a car accident are encompassed by this. Common injuries include whiplash, low back pain, herniated disks, knee and ankle pain, shoulder pain and dysfunction, and head trauma. If physical therapy is warranted, a full evaluation is completed to determine the root cause of the pain or problem you are experiencing. We don’t just treat the symptoms, we get to the source of it! A individualized plan of care is established by the physical therapist and subsequent treatments are designed to focus on any deficits. Treatments can include strengtheing, stretching, massage/mobilization of tissues, range of motion, cold laser, electrotherapy, moist heat, ice, and instruction on what should be done at home.
It is important to follow through with the entire plan of care set forth by the physical therapist in order to achieve the best results; and follow up with your medical doctor if any complications arise. We always recommend taking a conservative approach for your recovery prior to any surgery or invasive procedure, and have had much success with helping patients return to their lives!
