Motor Vehicle Accident

family (2) (1024x682)At Everybody Physical Therapy we have both a Portland and Vancouver location that can aid in quicker recovery from injuries sustained in auto accidents, a.k.a. motor vehicle accidents, such as whiplash, headaches, neck pain, low back pain, ligament injuries and others.

Unfortunately, studies show that most of us will be in an auto accident at some point in our lives. The severity of damage from a motor vehicle accident (MVA) can vary considerably.  Research suggests that receiving physical therapy in the early of late stages of an MVA will support long term recovery for pain, range of motion and function.

In the acute phase the focus will be on pain reduction with manual therapy, modalities, and gentle exercises as tolerated. Manual therapy techniques can reduce muscle spasms and restore joint mobility.  Strengthening under supervision in the clinic and participation in an individually tailored home program are integral parts of the therapy program for full recovery.

What makes our clinic different from the rest?  We create a safe, caring environment that promotes healing, wellness, and is committed to help you regain control of your life.  Your care is of the utmost importance to us and that is why you will see the same physical therapist for one-on-one treatments every visit.  We believe that therapy is a team effort.  Our goal is to give you the tools you need to help your body heal and prevent chronic pain issues.  Your goals may be unique to you and will receive a tailor made treatment plan.  You will be a direct part of the team and participate in all the decisions for your treatment.

Treatments typically consist of a combination of manual therapy (hands on treatment), exercise, pain reduction techniques, instruction on positioning and activities to reduce pain, and various modalities.
