Physical rehabilitation is a recovery technique that focuses on restoring function to damaged joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other bodily tissues. If you suffer an auto injury, physical rehabilitation can help relieve pain and improve your mobility.
The experienced chiropractors and pain specialists at Liberty HealthCare provide individualized care for auto injuries through rehabilitative techniques. With on-site rehabilitation centers, the practice enables patients to get the comprehensive care they need under one roof.
Liberty HealthCare may recommend physical rehabilitation if you suffer an occupational or auto injury, such as:
Whiplash is a neck injury that most often occurs during car accidents. The force of impact causes the head to swing back and forth rapidly, straining the muscles and tendons that support the neck. Whiplash can range in intensity from mild to severe, causing pain, stiffness, and limited movement in the neck.
Back pain is one of the most common auto and work-related injuries. With 33 vertebrae and countless tissues supporting the spine, any structure in the back can strain, tear, or fracture from impact. Physical rehabilitation helps strengthen the supportive structures in the upper and lower body to relieve back pain.
With a wide range of motion, the shoulder is vulnerable to injury from repetitive strain and sudden injury. An auto injury or work-related accident can tear the rotator cuff — the group of tissues supporting the shoulder joint — or fracture the joint itself.
Injuries to the lower body are especially common in auto accidents. Damage to the lumbar spine (lower back), femur (thighbone), or knees can limit your mobility and cause persistent leg pain.
The practitioners at Liberty HealthCare create individualized treatment plans for each patient. Customizing your treatment helps ensure you recover quickly and enjoy long-lasting pain relief. Your personalized plan may include:
With a multifaceted approach to care, your provider may recommend multiple treatments to support your overall healing.
