Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries

A motor vehicle accident can result in both instant and postponed physical repercussions. Post-accident physical therapy provides a comprehensive array of treatments tailored to address your specific needs.

A motor vehicle accident (MVA) is a traumatic event, impacting both mental and physical health. While the majority of people involved in an MVA typically recover within 2-3 weeks, it is not unusual for some to experience persistent or recurrent pain post-incident. Although whiplash is recognized as the most prevalent injury following an MVA, a variety of other symptoms may also manifest subsequent to the accident.

Benefits of Physical Therapy after a Motor Vehicle Accident

Physical therapy is frequently recommended alongside other treatments for individuals who have sustained injuries in automobile accidents. There are multiple advantages to pursuing physical therapy post-accident, including pain reduction, enhanced mobility and function, as well as the restoration of strength and balance—all achieved without relying on medication.

Understanding Insurance Coverage After a Motor Vehicle Accident

Recovering from a motor vehicle accident involves both physical healing and navigating insurance processes. Understanding the coverage options available through PIP, health insurance, and auto insurance policies is crucial for ensuring that your physical therapy visits are covered. If you have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to consult with both your healthcare provider and insurance professionals to make informed decisions about your rehabilitation journey. In many cases, you may reach out to a personal injury attorney for guidance as well.
