Miami Injury and Accident Clinic
If you have sustained an injury such as a broken bone, pulled muscle, soft tissue injury, or even head or back injury, physical therapy will likely increase your chances of making a full recovery so you can get back to your normal level of functioning. After being injured, it takes time, patience, rest, and active efforts to heal properly.
After you have spent time resting and healing, your doctor will likely recommend that you undergo physical therapy to regain muscle strength, reduce pain, and improve mobility. The injury and accident clinic at Physical Therapy Now is here.

If you are suffering from pain or limited mobility or have received a referral from you doctor following an accident, physical therapy services can speed up your recovery process signifigantly.
While it is possible to forego physical therapy while healing from an injury, it is, in most situation, not recommended.

- Reduce or eliminate your pain
- Help you to avoid surgery
- Improve your mobility
- Recover from or prevent sports injuries

Physical therapy is so much more than just a recovery process. It is treatment for your pain and a way to prevent further injury in the future. Exercise is shown to increase endorphins and decrease pain. The consistent movement can improve your strength and allow you to actively heal under the supervision of a trained professional.
