In the United States motor vehicle accidents are common and occur on a daily basis. Even a minor accident may still have an effect on the muscles, joints, and nerves. A reflex guarding response may be initiated by the sympathetic nervous system. This is part of the "Fight or Flight" mechanism which kicks in to protect the body from further trauma. Sometimes this reflex of motion. A car accident can have a devastating effect on your life and the after affects are not only financially devastating, but physically as well. This is often times why it is very necessary to seek the attention of a physical therapist shortly after an accident.

There are many types of injuries that can occur as the result of an accident and the type of remedy you receive can depend on the severity of the injuries and/or where that injury is located. The longer you delay treatment, the harder it may be to get back to normal. A physical therapist will also have access to physical therapy equipment that could very well speed healing. The physical therapist will introduce procedures to shut off the reflex guarding and gradually increase range of motion, flexibility, strength, and endurance.

If you have recently been in a car accident or if you have a case still open, our office can take care of your rehab. After seeing your doctor, prescribing you for physical therapy, just let us know that you have an auto claim. When scheduling your appointment please have the name of the insurance company, claim number, date of accident; name & telephone number of the person handling your claim.

"after a few short weeks..."

Reviewed by Andrew J. on March 22nd 2012

“I went into Physical Therapy Associates with a reoccurring running injury–shin splints on long runs. I’d tried stretching and most of the well worn solutions from running magazines and books. But I couldn’t shake the tight muscles and aching shins. Now after a few short weeks with Phyllis and some P.T. I am pain free.”

Reviewed by Henry S. on February 29th 2011

“Just weeks after starting physical therapy, my minor muscles are stronger, my running style more fluid and my aches are muted and/or non-existent.
I recommend Physical Therapy Associates and Phyllis for any of you endurance runners out there who have been in pain while pounding through the miles. She can really help.”
