Motor Vehicle Accidents and Personal Injuries
Whether you have become injured from a car accident or fall, injuries can leave devastating effects on the body. Once these injuries occur, it is common to experience reduced mobility, headaches, or stiffness. Sometimes, these symptoms are delayed, and may not immediately appear after your accident. This pain can interfere with your day-to-day life and progress over time, which is why it is important to initiate care as soon as possible.
Our physical therapists can help get you back to doing the things you love by minimizing stiffness, improving range of motion, and reducing costs down the road.
Causes of Personal Injuries
Personal injuries occur while at work. These injuries can be due to increased demands of the occupation along with unfortunate events that lead to an injury. Poor lifting mechanics and prolonged postures can increase the likelihood of a personal injury.
