Treatment for an automobile injury in O’Fallon, Missouri

Treating an Automobile Injury

Nobody wants to be involved in an automobile accident. The damage to your car, the hassling with insurance — it’s all a very unpleasant experience. It’s even worse when you’ve been injured.

Some people are lucky enough to escape a motor vehicle accident with little more than a few scrapes or bruises or nothing at all. Though, others might experience something more severe, like whiplash, a broken limb or a concussion.

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident in O’Fallon, Missouri and are suffering from pain or loss of mobility, you should consider physical therapy from the team at Excel Sports and Physical Therapy.

How do physical therapists help with motor vehicle injuries?

Physical therapists are licensed healthcare professionals who specialize in treating the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons in your body. Physical therapy treatments can help people who’ve been in an automobile accident with:

  • Improving recovery time — Depending on the nature of your injury, it can take a while to recover from the pain, loss of mobility and loss of coordination from an automobile accident. Physical therapists can identify ways to improve your mobility, strength and coordination, which can help reduce the amount of time you need to recover.

  • Reducing pain — Physical therapy exercises help deliver oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured parts of your body, which helps promote healing and reducing pain. Additionally, strengthening and stretching the muscles, ligaments and tendons can help reduce pressure off the injured areas.

  • Reducing chances of surgery — Without treatment, some injuries can grow worse over time and may need surgery. Physical therapy can help eliminate the necessity for surgery in many cases. If surgery is necessary, physical therapy can help you recover from it.
