Physical Therapy for Motor Vehicle Accidents

Physical Therapy for MVA’s or Car Accident Injuries

Motor vehicle accident recovery can be a difficult process. If you experience lower back pain, upper back pain, bulging discs, pinched nerves, muscle aches, or whiplash, physical therapy can help.

Keep in mind, some symptoms won’t appear immediately after a car accident. It’s important to book a physical therapy examination as soon as possible to be sure your insurance company will properly cover you.
