Motor Vehicle Injury & Whiplash Rehabilitation

At LHMPTI, we understand that motor vehicle accidents can result in a range of injuries, including whiplash and other musculoskeletal issues. We’re here to provide you with exceptional rehabilitation services to help you recover and regain your optimal function.

Motor vehicle injury and whiplash rehabilitation focuses on the evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents. Whiplash is a common injury that occurs when the head is forcefully jerked back and forth, causing strain to the neck and surrounding structures. However, motor vehicle accidents can also result in other musculoskeletal injuries, such as fractures, sprains, strains, and soft tissue damage. 

 Your motor vehicle injury and whiplash rehabilitation sessions with our skilled physical therapists may include a combination of the following approaches: 

 Pain management techniques: Our therapists will employ various modalities, such as heat or cold therapy, electrical stimulation, or ultrasound, to help alleviate pain and reduce inflammation in the affected areas.
 Manual therapy: We may use hands-on techniques, such as joint mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, or massage, to improve joint range of motion, reduce muscle tension, and promote healing.
 Therapeutic exercises: We'll guide you through specific exercises to strengthen weakened muscles, improve flexibility, and restore functional movement patterns. These exercises will be tailored to your individual needs and gradually progress as you recover.
 Posture and body mechanics education: We'll provide you with guidance on maintaining proper posture and using correct body mechanics during daily activities to minimize stress on injured areas and promote healing.
 Balance and coordination training: If your motor vehicle injury has affected your balance or coordination, we'll incorporate exercises and activities to help restore these skills and improve your overall stability.
 Functional retraining: We'll work with you to regain the ability to perform daily activities and tasks that may have been affected by your injuries. This may include activities such as reaching, lifting, or carrying objects.
 Education on self-care and injury prevention: We'll provide you with valuable information on self-care techniques, home exercises, and strategies to prevent future injuries and promote long-term recovery.
