Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA)

Motor vehicle accidents can have devastating effects on the body. It is not uncommon to see everything from whiplash and fractures to muscle strains and tearing. Physical therapy is important in helping those who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents, as it helps to reduce stiffness and improve range of motion, while also aiding in overall recovery.

After an accident, we can help patients recover from the following:

  • Painful whiplash and neck strains, which can lead to severe headaches and muscle spasms
  • Back injuries that can limit motion and cause nerve pain
  • Numbness and loss of sensation in the limbs
  • Problems with coordination and balance
