Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA)

Recover from a Motor Vehicle Accident with Physical Therapy

You have just had a motor vehicle accident. Now what?

First, if you believe you have a severe medical problem, please seek immediate medical attention.

Virginia has over one hundred thousand motor vehicle accidents (MVA) each year. Some walk away with aches and pains while others face recovery from more serious injuries such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries and concussions
  • Spinal cord and back injuries
  • Whiplash or neck injury
  • Fractures and broken bones

Motor vehicle accidents cause loss of employment days, impaired mobility, headaches, and pain, to mention a few of the impacts. Recover from a motor vehicle accident with physical therapy.

Why Physical Therapy after a Motor Vehicle Accident?

You may think that physical therapy only helps alleviate the pain from an auto accident. It does help patients cope with the pain of an accident, but physical therapy provides other benefits. Here are just a few:

  • Therapy supports the entire recovery process
  • Prevents long-term damage
  • Reduces pain and restores function
  • It helps patients avoid surgery
