Treating auto accident head injuries with physical therapy

Auto Accident Head Injury Treatment

If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, then you may have received physical therapy as treatment. Head injuries are very common in auto accidents, and though people don’t usually think to see a physical therapist for this type of injury, it can be very beneficial. 

Fortunately, Specialists in Sports and Orthopedic Rehabilitation (SSOR) offers physical therapy for head injuries due to auto accidents, so you can gain the benefits of treating your injury with physical therapy. 

The team at SSOR has years of experience helping people recover from auto accidents. Auto accident injuries tend to recover faster if you get physical therapy for them right away. The longer you wait, the longer you’ll have to deal with the pain of your injury. Our team will help you develop a treatment plan that may help you recover faster, and we’ll also make sure you know what’s going on with your treatment during every step of it. Our auto accident injury treatment plans can be designed to help you with your head injury from an auto accident. 

An injury our auto accident injury treatments help with

There is a good reason that head injuries are common in car accidents, which is because most car accidents cause your car to slow, or stop, rapidly. This rapid slowing causes your body to whip forward, and the whipping motion can cause your head to strike the steering wheel, dashboard and other parts of the vehicle. Head injuries are particularly common if you aren’t wearing a seatbelt. If you’ve gotten an auto accident head injury, our team can help you develop a treatment plan that targets the symptoms you’re likely to experience. Some of these symptoms include: 

  • Vision problems
  • Skull fractures
  • Headaches

All these symptoms can be a serious and painful inconvenience in your daily life. Our treatment plans may help you recover from these and other head injury symptoms more rapidly.
