Most injuries that occur after car accidents are soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue injuries can include strains or sprains to muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, or connective tissue. One common type of soft tissue injury which can occur after a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash usually involves trauma to the neck as a result of the impact of a vehicle collision. Headaches or migraines can also be triggered by whiplash.
Other common types of injuries after car accidents are strains of the back and occasionally the upper and lower extremities. These can include sprains and strains to the shoulders, chest, knees, leg muscles, ankles, or feet, to name a few. These types of injuries and many others can be effectively treated with physical therapy at our Winnipeg physiotherapy clinic.

Your physiotherapist will also provide a home exercise and pain management program to help you through the different phases of injury healing. Our main goal is to get you back to the activities that you care about!
