MOTOR ACCIDENTS

It’s often said that life can throw all kinds of curveballs at us, and motor vehicle accidents are one of these things. If you or someone you know has been involved in a motor vehicle accident, we express our sympathy and understand that this is a challenging time. We understand that recovering from an accident can sometimes be a bit challenging; physically, mentally, and emotionally. 

Our team at Perfect Motion Physiotherapy is here to assist you or your loved one in their recovery, having helped many others in the same position to fully bounce back and once again live life the way they deserve: in perfect motion.

Before rehabilitation begins

For patients involved in motor vehicle accidents, a few things have to be taken care of before rehab begins. Before we can treat you, an assessment must be conducted by a medical doctor who will then organise therapy and other investigations. Our physiotherapists will then be able to start assessing and treating you, helping to overcome your injuries.

Physical assessments

At first, our consultations will purely be verbal and physical assessments as a way to observe the movement of your body, determine how to approach the recovery plan and how to move forward. This is where our physios will look at all your medical scans and see how your body is moving so that they have a deep understanding of what needs to be done.

Hands-on treatment

Our team of highly skilled physios will then start performing hands-on physiotherapy treatment. This will aim to alleviate the pain and restore as much movement as possible, enabling you to perform your strengthening exercises as best as possible.

Home exercise and strengthening program

Alongside hands-on therapy at your consultations, our physios will also outline a detailed and personalised home exercise program. This program will be personally designed to target the parts of the body which need to be strengthened. Through your dedication and the guidance of our physios, you’ll see more ease of motion returning to your affected muscles and joints.

Group exercises and gym programs

Group exercises and gym programs are also a huge part of your motor accident injury recovery. Our physios will assist you in more intense strengthening exercises as you progress on your road to recovery. These exercises will focus on strength in functional positions and our physios will be with you every step of the way until you’re moving easily again.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is another option for particular injuries sustained from motor vehicle accidents. This treatment can help you get moving without the added stress of gravity. It proves to be a great starting place for some patients. We have access to a therapy pool through our partner members. 

Motor accident injuries can be very serious which is why you need a team of highly skilled and experienced physiotherapists to help you. Our team at Perfect Motion Physiotherapy have treated and assessed many patients who have suffered injuries from motor vehicle accidents, helping them make full recoveries.
