Benefits of Physiotherapy After Car Accident
Benefits of Physiotherapy After Car Accident:
- Supports Recovery – Stiffness, pain, reduced range of movement chronic headaches prevent patients from returning to their normal daily routine. However, getting the right Physiotherapy care soon after your accident aids in speeding up your recovery by improving strength, flexibility and keep painful symptoms under control.
- Prevents Long-Term Damage – In addition to increasing flexibility, strength, and mobility, Physiotherapy also helps prevent further complications, including migraines, inability to walk, and chronic pain. If not addressed soon after the accident, the injuries can cause long term damage. The sooner patients start their recovery program, the more likely they are to enjoy a relatively pain-free life for years to come.
- Reduce Pain – Physical activity is essential for reducing pain and spurring recovery. This is a catch 22 situation. Moving causes pain, not moving causes more pain eventually. Being physically active enables the body to pump nutrient and oxygen-rich blood to the injured areas. You Physiotherapist will guide you after your accident on what to move and how to move it. This can include various individualised programs, including strengthening and stretching exercises to address pain and poor body mechanics.
- May Avoid the Possibility of Surgery – In some cases, patients may require immediate surgery to treat their injuries – fractures, major soft tissue damage. However, minor problems may escalate over time, requiring surgery later in life due to the combination of the initial damage and increased wear and tear of the injured soft tissues over time. Physiotherapy can avoid the need for such surgeries by strengthening weakened muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
