Injuries

MVA

Whiplash is often caused by rear-end accidents. This occurs when the head is aggressively jerked backward and forward or to the side. It destabilizes the spine and sometimes can cause severe pain to the neck, shoulder and low back pain. Blurred vision, headaches and dizziness and reduced range of motion in the neck and low back can also occur. It is not a life-threatening injury but it can lead to chronic pain and even disability. The sooner you are able to get evaluated and see treatment the sooner you can be on the road to recovery.

Workers Compensation

Physical therapy is one of the most common treatments prescribed in a worker’s compensation claim. Doctors will prescribe physical therapy to treat a number of different types of injuries that occur at work ranging from slips, trips and falls to muscle strains, cuts and lacerations. Your doctor can order physical therapy right after an injury or after performing a surgery to help you recover and build muscle strength. A therapist works toward improving your motion and mobility to increase your ability to earn a living and perform activities of daily living. It is important to schedule physical therapy as soon as your doctor prescribes it.
