After a car accident, you may experience pain, reduced range of motion, headaches, or stiffness. There are many, many reasons to undergo physical therapy after you’ve been in a car crash, as it supports the recovery process and can also prevent long-term damage from a car accident, including migraines and chronic pain.

Keep in mind that not all symptoms may not appear right after a car accident. Physical therapy helps you to keep pain symptoms at bay, improve flexibility, increase strength and recover faster.

The sooner you get physical therapy after a car wreck, the more likely you are to have a pain-free life. As a matter of fact, a Medscape study revealed that those who didn’t receive physical therapy were much more likely to suffer from degenerative disc disease.

Common Auto Injuries

Auto accidents can cause injury to any part of the body. There are several factors that can impact the degree of injury such as speed, direction of the impact, if airbags deployed, if seatbelt worn etc. While some individuals notice pain or other symptoms right away, and others may only notice changes in health or comfort several days after the accident. Because auto accident injuries can have long-term effects on your comfort, health, and quality of life, seeking Physical Therapy treatment as soon as you notice symptoms of any injury is the best way to minimize the consequences of your injuries. The most common injuries are:

  • Whiplash
  • Back injuries
  • Joint injuries

The Best Way To Minimize The Consequences Of Your Injuries:

  • Whiplash is the most common injury associated with auto accidents. This type of injury can occur even in low-speed collisions, particularly rear-ending, and may cause stiffness and pain in the neck, shoulders, arms, or upper and lower back.
  • Back injuries such as herniated discs, fractured vertebrae, sprains, and strains are another common consequence of car crashes. Damage to the spine can cause chronic back pain and disability; working with your Physical Therapist is the best way to prevent lasting damage and achieve effective back pain relief.
  • Joint injuries commonly occur when the body is jostled or jolted in an accident. Physical Therapy treatment can restore joint mobility and relieve pain, as well as prevent chronic conditions such as accident-related arthritis from developing over time.

Who Pays For Physical Therapy After a Car Accident?

If you have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) or Medical Payments (Med Pay) coverage, your auto insurance will pay for medical bills. Either of these is considered your primary source of medical insurance, which means it needs to be exhausted before utilizing your health insurance.

If you do not have either PIP or MedPay, then your health insurance can be used (subject to normal deductibles, copays, and co-insurances). If a 3rd party is responsible for the collision, their insurance company will typically reimburse your auto insurance or health insurance when the case settles.

Most personal injury lawyers work on a “contingency,” which means they are only paid if your case wins a settlement. To find a personal injury lawyer, reach out to us and we can refer you.
