Physical Therapy for Several Injuries

It’s truly mind-blowing the variety of injuries a car accident can cause. They can range from
scrapes and bruises to life-altering spinal cord injuries. For just about everything in between
(and even including spinal injuries), physical therapy can help you recover and regain what you
may have lost after a car accident. The skilled, experienced physical therapists at Physical
Therapy Now are ready to help you get back on your feet.
Common Injuries from Car Accidents
Injuries sustained in car accidents can vary in severity, but the types of injuries are usually
pretty similar due to the nature of car accident impact. The types of accident-related injuries we
typically see include:
● Whiplash–This is one of the more common car accident injuries, which results from the
fast, sudden impact of the car striking another vehicle or object. Most whiplash injuries
involve very sore muscles, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue.
● Fractures–Whether it’s from the actual impact (which could cause fractures in legs,
arms, ribs, or even the spine) or from bracing for impact (usually shoulder/clavicle
fractures), fractures/broken bones are a common–and unfortunate–result of car
accidents.
● Knee injuries–Many people might not immediately think of knees when it comes to
common car accident injuries. But knees quite often suffer damage in these situations
due to impact with the dashboard. Kneecaps and ligaments bear the brunt of the impact,
causing these painful injuries.
● Head trauma–Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can sometimes be a devastating result of a
car accident. Based on the severity of the injury, TBIs can have life-threatening and life-
changing consequences.
● Spinal cord injuries–Similar to TBIs, spinal cord injuries can literally change everything if
the injury is severe enough. Paralysis and loss of/lack of mobility are just a couple of the
catastrophic results of a spinal cord injury.
● Herniated discs–Though not nearly as serious or traumatic as a spinal cord injury,
herniated discs in the back can nonetheless cause a tremendous amount of pain and
affect almost everything you do during any given day. Severe back pain, as well as
shooting pain and numbness down the legs are common occurrences with herniated
discs.● Cuts and scrapes–Though most heal over time, accident victims can sometimes suffer
appearance-altering or even lifestyle-changing cuts that might require staples and/or
stitches to repair. Add in the ever-present possibility of infection and scars, and it’s easy
to see why cuts are an unfortunate result of many accidents.
