HANSON EASTSIDE PHYSICAL THERAPY can assist you in your care following a motor vehicle accident.  Typically a motor vehicle accident can result in a quick and forceful type injury that can result in pulls and strains along the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the neck and back.  Common injuries like Whiplash involving the neck can cause pain to extend into the neck, shoulder and back region and weakness, numbness, tingling and headaches can often follow.  

 

Our goal is to help guide the individual in their recovery process and to encourage movement and range of motion within an appropriate range to help increase overall circulation, heal inflamed connective tissue and help prevent long-term loss of muscle function and chronic pain. 

 

Our individual treatment plan may include protecting the injured sight, using ice and moist heat, modalities such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation, gradual stretching and range of motion activity to help maintain and increase muscle length, soft tissue massage, myofascial release, trigger point release, gentle strengthening and conditioning along with stabilization exercises and postural awareness to insure the body remains in alignment.  Our goal is to get you "Back in Action" as soon as possible.
