Neck and back injuries are some of the most common injuries that result from being in a motor vehicle accident. Even a minor fender bender can lead to injuries that won’t become apparent until weeks later. Patients who wait up to 30 days after their car accident to be treated for back care alone are 89% more likely to have surgery, compared to patients who receive physical therapy within three days of their injury (APTA).

Physical therapists are recognized as your go-to musculoskeletal injury experts when you are experiencing pain or soreness from a car accident. At Renew Physical Therapy, our goal is to get you back to what you love without major surgery and medications.

Here is how early physical therapy after a motor vehicle accident leads to a quicker, cost effective, and an overall better recovery.

  1. Therapy + Exercise: With physical therapy, a custom treatment plan is developed based on the injuries from your car accident. This may include a mix of hands-on therapy with joint and soft tissue mobilizations and manipulations, and movement retraining. When hands-on therapy and exercise are combined, it provides the patient with better outcomes compared to a passive care approach.
  2. Patient Education: At Renew Physical Therapy, every patient is assigned a physical therapist who is highly trained and dedicated to your recovery. Your physical therapist will advise you on adjustments you can make to your work environment and daily activities, and help correct your posture. Not only will you feel better now, but you will also avoid reinjury and stay healthy.
  3. Network of Referrals: When patient care is needed beyond physical therapy, Renew Physical Therapy is able to refer patients to our extensive network of doctors, massage therapists, naturopaths, chiropractors, nutritionists, mental health workers, acupuncturists and more. 
  4. Direct Access Saves Money: Compared to patients who receive early physical therapy, patients who wait more than 30 days are averaging a 24-28% higher payment per claim (APTA). At Renew Physical Therapy, we can get you in as soon as the next day following your motor vehicle accident.
