Neck hurting?

Back sore?

Monster headache?

I bet you were rear-ended, weren’t you?

Most people’s first stop on their medical tour following a car accident is at their family doctor’s office.  After all, your family doctor is probably the medical professional you trust the most.

But here’s the thing.

Often your doctor won’t be able to ease your pain. Instead they’ll probably refer you to a physiotherapist. In fact, the most common form of treatment prescribed by doctors to people who’ve been hurt in a car accident is physiotherapy. 

That being said, most people don’t know much about how physiotherapy can help to ease their pain following a car crash. And that’s why you should read an article in today’s Vancouver Sun about the role that physiotherapy plays in helping people who’re injured. http://www.vancouversun.com/health/Relieving+stress+health+care/9560387/story.html

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries people experience after a car accident. That sudden jolt caused by the other driver ramming into the back of you doesn’t just damage your car. It often also damages your body. That’s why your neck hurts, your back is killing you and you’ve got a headache.

Medical science has proven that physiotherapy is one of the best ways to alleviate the pain associated with this kind of injury. In fact, this “hands-on” approach not only eases pain, it also helps to restore your mobility.

So how does physiotherapy work? Long story short, physiotherapists treat you with specially designed manipulations, strengthening exercises and stretches.

Combined with treatment from your family doctor, physiotherapy often helps a great deal towards getting you on your road to recovery.
