Auto accident injury treatment helps heal old injuries too

Auto Accident Injury Treatment Helps Old Injuries

You may know that auto accident injury treatments from a physical therapist can be helpful right after your car crash. What you may not know is that this type of physical therapy can also help treat injuries that you didn’t know you had at the time.

Our team at SSOR is proud to offer physical therapy to the residents of Prairie Village, Overland Park and Shawnee, Kansas. One commitment that we bring to every treatment plan is to help you heal as quickly as possible. We’ll do many things to help with this goal, including providing you with extensive education about your injury and the treatments we use on it. Our therapies are also designed to offer you maximum effectiveness, and they’re so effective for most patients that we can even use our auto accident injury treatments to help heal accident injuries you’ve had for years.

How our auto accident injury treatment helps heal your old accident injuries

At SSOR, we realize that most people will seek our auto accident injury treatments right after their accident. We often see injuries such as concussions and whiplash, and these injuries tend to respond well to the therapy methods included in our treatment plans.

However, there are times when you may not realize that you’ve been injured in a car crash. For one thing, you may not recognize that you’re experiencing the symptoms of a concussion or whiplash. If this is the case, you may not seek treatment for your injuries immediately. Another scenario that our team sees with car crashes could happen to you as well. You might get a minor injury from your accident, such as a pulled or torn muscle. Since this injury doesn’t seem serious at the time, you take painkillers for a few days until the pain goes away. But, our team can tell you that minor injuries like these can cause you pain and other issues even years later.

Luckily, our therapy team can help you with these old injuries, too. We’ll create a plan for you that may include therapies like cardiovascular rehab, strength training and targeted stretching. We may also add in therapies like massage and manual manipulation to break down scar tissue around the old injury. Using these and other forms of treatment, we can help you create a treatment plan for your old accident injury that may have benefits that include:

  • Relieving lingering pain
  • Restoring mobility
  • Reducing your dependence on painkillers

With benefits like these, you may want to get started with your old injury treatment right away. Well, our team has the tools to help you. We offer free 15-minute screenings that’ll help us determine what sort of injury you have. We’ll then work with you to create a personalized auto accident injury treatment plan that’s designed to promote fast healing.
