Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries

With the extensive use of motor vehicles for transportation, the cases of injuries due to it have also seen to be increased. An estimate shows that in the year 2017, in Canada, almost 160,000 cases were reported due to motor accidents. The intensity of the accident varies, may cause bruises and may lead to fatality.

Common motor vehicle accident injuries

The most commonly caused injuries by a car accident include the head and neck injuries. The injuries occurred in the head, and the neck is very dangerous and may claim the life of a person. The accidents may cause disc slip, which is known as herniation of the discs. The sudden act of stopping a car results in whiplash, which may damage the neck and the chest of the person. The sudden stop often results in the breaking of the ribs and rupturing of the lungs. A strong whiplash can cause severe damage to the chest and neck and can cause several health complications.

A car accident leaves a person with multiple injuries depending on the situation. It is advised to consult the professional medical practitioners to cure the injuries.

The reasons why you should get physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy treatments after a motor vehicle accident

A motor vehicle accident leaves a person with a series of complications. There are several good reasons to hire a medical professional to do physical therapy. The complications which arise after the accident may include the stiffness of the muscles, inability to move or stretching of the legs and the arms, and the inhibition in the flexibility of the muscles.

The physiotherapist would help in reducing the pain significantly; also, the therapy would enable to increase the flexibility and strength of the muscles. The pains often start after a few days of the trauma; the pain may include the headaches, chronic pains leading to migraine pain.

It is also found by a study of Medscape, that the people who do not take the physiotherapy sessions have a higher chance of getting the degenerative disc disease.

The manual therapy sessions can help in reducing the pain. It also helps in increasing the blood carrying capacity of the cells and provides further nutrients to the injured sites. A practitioner, physiotherapist, chiropractor, or massage therapist may even personalize the therapy sessions according to the complications.

It is commonly observed that the physiotherapy sessions can help in avoiding the complex operations as it involves the strengthening of the tendons and the ligaments. 

The physical therapy sessions can also be effective for anyone who may have faced the injuries a year ago. Since the technique does not involve the operations or stitches, it also helpful for people having old car accidents. The therapy sessions help in improving the mobility and the flexibility of the muscles and help in reducing the pain if faced by the patient.

The physiotherapists can even treat the damaged vestibular system, damaged in a car accident. The services at revibe are holistic, to treat a victim of a car accident, which include massage therapy, physiotherapy, and chiropractic.
