Injuries following a car or motorcycle accident can have long-lasting effects. In a story shared by Dean here, he shares his experience with physical therapy following a motorcycle accident.
He mentions that he was highly skeptical at first when his doctor prescribed physical therapy for the pain he was experiencing. After participating in physical therapy, this is what he had to say about his experience:
“If someone offered me pain medication today, I would not take it,” he said. “Just do the physical therapy. It lessens the pain tremendously.”
If you’ve experienced an accident, it’s important to understand the impact that physical therapy can have on your recovery. The following symptoms are common to experience after an accident:
- Pain and stiffness in the head, neck, and shoulders
- Loss of range of motion in the neck
- Chronic migraines or headaches
- Tingling and numbness in the upper extremities
- Dizziness and fatigue
It is important to note that starting therapy quicker will help aide in faster recovery. As you work with your Physical Therapist, they will help you improve your range of motion, flexibility, and strengthen the muscles, ligaments, and tendons that are damaged by your accident. You will be able to return to your life with less pain.
