Auto Accident Injuries

Candice C.

"I came to Wellspring because of prior car accidents and horrible posture. Physically I was in pain every day. From standing to lifting and even laying down would put me in pain. I would get crabby and irritated that I was constantly sore and unhappy. Since treatment at Wellspring, I have less pain and tension in my body. There was always a warm, inviting atmosphere whenever I went there. I loved everything about my treatment there."

Abby E.

"I was in a car accident. My left side was affected, neck, shoulder, and lower back. I constantly felt that I had limited movement throughout my neck and back. I felt very comfortable receiving treatment and knew that they (Wellspring) provided outstanding care!! Thank you for my treatment, being educational, comforting and energizing!"

Dena W.

"I was in a car accident and the pain in my back was so strong that I could not sleep more than 20 minutes at a time. My arm and hand were also becoming numb and made being a student hard. After the warm, friendly and jubilant staff at Wellspring worked with me I can say that Everything has improved! I am able to get enough rest, sit through lectures, take notes, fully interact with my daughter and over all enjoy life!"

Erin K.

"I decided to come to Wellspring because I had been in a few car accidents in my childhood which caused my neck and lower back to be tense all the time. I wasn't able to workout, go to school all day, and do normal activities without pain. After treatment at Wellspring I have more ROM in my neck and can see by blindsides while driving. I can also lift the kids that I nanny for without any pain! My time here has truly been a life-changing experience for me. Everyone here is so welcoming and cares about your progress. I would recommend Wellspring to anyone that is having issues. This is an amazing clinic that I have enjoyed coming to."

April F.

"I had acute right hip pain that made it difficult to walk. I also had chronic neck pain from an old whiplash injury. I relied on drugs to be comfortable. I was very miserable and hopeless. With the help from the professional and skilled staff at Wellspring, I was able to get my strength back! I'm so grateful! Sticking with the plan proved worthy when I saw my before and after posture photos. I would recommend Wellspring to anyone!"

Karla G.

"I never had back pain before my car accident, so it was very discouraging to be in such pain and feel so helpless. Everyone here at Wellspring Health Center was so helpful and reminded me to keep up the good work! ...They really took care of me like family."

Discover How Physical Therapy Can Help You Recover After an Auto Accident

Have You Been Involved in a Car Accident? Physical Therapy Can Help You Find Relief

Our Eden Prairie, MN physical therapists are trained in car accident injury recovery and have the tools to help you recover for all types of auto accident injuries.

Have you been involved in a car accident? If so, Wellspring Health Center can help provide the relief you need to start feeling better.

Physical therapy and auto accident injury relief

Auto accident pain? Research shows that low-speed auto accidents can injure the neck, shoulder, back, chest, and head. The most common injury in rear-end collisions is whiplash. After a car accident, you may experience pain, reduced range of motion, headaches, dizziness, or stiffness.

There are many, many reasons to undergo physical therapy after you’ve been in a car crash, as it supports the recovery process and can also prevent long-term damage from a car accident, including migraines and chronic pain.

Keep in mind that not all symptoms may not appear right after a car accident. Physical therapy helps you to keep pain symptoms at bay, improve flexibility, increase strength, and recover faster.

The sooner you get physical therapy after a car wreck, the more likely you are to have a pain-free life. As a matter of fact, a Medscape study revealed that those who didn’t receive physical therapy were much more likely to suffer from degenerative disc disease.

Specific benefits to physical therapy after an auto accident include:

Avoiding Surgery

Physical therapy also helps you avoid surgery. It strengthens ligaments, tendons, and muscles, which protect the body’s structures. It’s also a much more cost-effective solution.

Curing Vertigo

Physical therapists can even treat vertigo due to a car accident. Using specialized techniques, they can help heal the dysfunction in the vestibular system.

Restoring Function

Physical therapy can also restore function in patients with old car accident injuries, even if you haven’t been in one recently. You can still benefit from physical therapy even if you had an injury years ago. Utilizing an integrative holistic approach, we can help relieve old pain and improve mobility. Our natural hands-on treatments are gentle and safe helping to avoid relying on pain medications for relief.

Reducing Pain

Physical therapy helps reduce pain. Therapeutic exercises pump oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the injury site and enhance healing. Every hands-on treatment, exercise, and stretch prescribed by a physical therapist has a specific goal for recovery and improves function and mobility. Our Eden Prairie, MN physical therapist will develop a personalized treatment plan targeted to your auto accident injury.

Types of physical therapy treatments used to treat auto accident injuries include massage therapy, manual therapy, myofascial release, cold laser therapy, Pilates Matwork Therapy, gentle spinal manipulation. Our medical care includes onsite diagnostic x-rays or referrals for special tests or treatments. As well as natural pain treatments like trigger point injections and prolozone injections.

Wellspring Health Center is unique in that we offer an integrative holistic approach to care for car accident injuries. A team of holistic-minded healthcare professionals working together in one convenient location.

Did you sustain one of these injuries?

Head and back injuries from a car wreck are typically the most serious. Head injuries can lead to vision problems, skull fractures, and concussions. With a concussion, you may experience dizziness and headaches.

Another common car accident injury is a herniated disk. Neck and chest injuries are also common, with whiplash being the most common accident injury.

Whiplash can be very painful and restrict movement. The sudden movement of the neck and head in a car accident can cause whiplash (even at a low-speed). Blunt force trauma from a car accident can collapse lungs and break ribs.

Indeed, car accidents can result in a wide variety of injuries. For a quicker recovery, it’s best to be evaluated for physical therapy treatments at Wellspring Health Center.
