Motor Vehicle Accidents

The traumatic experience following a motor vehicle accident can leave you hurting both physically and emotionally. We understand the difficulty of trying to recover while trying to go about the normal routines and tasks of our daily lives.

Often we do not feel the effects of a car accident or whiplash until several hours or even days after the initial injury. While the injuries that can occur during the course of an accident are numerous, most frequently there are complaints neck pain and post-concussion symptoms. Each of these injuries are important to address as quickly as possible, as most of the recent research on whiplash associated disorders state that the most improvement is gained during the first 12 weeks after an accident, and that improvement after that is much slower.

We address loss of cervical proprioception with the use of the Motion Guidance™ laser system. When cervical proprioception is restored, a graduated cervical stabilization and strengthening program ensues that allows the patient to regain function and mobility without increased pain.

With therapy that focuses on the individual and with a personalized plan of care to address the patient’s concerns, Pacific Physical Therapy’s goal is to restore function and allow you to enjoy a healthy, active, pain-free lifestyle.
