Injuries following a car, motorcycle or bicycle accident can have long-lasting effects. Common symptoms for someone who has been involved in this kind of accident include:
- Pain and stiffness in the head, neck, shoulders, or other parts of the body
- Loss of range of motion
- Chronic migraines or headaches
- Tingling and numbness in the upper and/or lower extremities
- Dizziness and fatigue
It is important to note that starting therapy as soon as possible will help aid 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 back to your normal physical activity with less pain.
