Physical Therapy For Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Injuries
A motor vehicle accident (MVA) can cause significant injury. While many will recover from minor MVA in 2-3 weeks, a large number of individuals will require extensive care involving physical therapy to recover from an MVA. Whiplash is the most common MVA injury. However, there are many other injuries that can be a result of an MVA.

It is our belief that we should do all we can before ever getting surgery. While there is obvious instances in which surgery is required, we strive to provide excellent physical therapy with the hopes to minimize risk of re-injury, and helping to avoid future surgical intervention.
Physical therapy can help to avoid surgery. It strengthens ligaments, tendons and muscles, which are key in protecting the body. PT is also a cost-effective approach as opposed to a costly surgery. We are confident we help reduce risk of future injury & surgical intervention by educating you during your time with us. Knowledge that you can take with you for years to come.
If our experienced physical therapists do not see progress with your injury, they will refer you to our trusted physicians and work with you pre and post op for the best outcome.

How our Whole Body Approach separates us from the rest
To us, physical therapy is not just about the patient’s 30-60 minutes with us per session. It goes far beyond that when it comes to long term health, and overall happiness. We have built a health and wellness clinic that includes Performance, Wellness & Rehab. Here’s how we help patients CHAMPION THEIR BODY!
Virtual Physical Therapy
Implementing virtual Physical Therapy (telehealth) into a patients plan of care teaches them to be autonomous, and learn how to care for their body in the comfort of their own home, on a business trip, or elsewhere. It is convenience and care combined into one.
Patients can go exclusively virtual or mix it in as an option when the schedule is busy and they can’t make it across town.
For the busy, traveling worker, virtual physical therapy has shown great benefit. Especially when the care is for an injury that is worsened when working – think sitting in a car for hours, and having pain while being seated, or standing up from seated. Having virtual physical therapy allows our team to be with our patients wherever they go to minimize pain and actually improve their situation even while away from home.
“It’s like having a PT in my living room – I love that I can get outstanding care for my body even when my schedule is busy and I can’t physically make it in.”
