Rehabilitation after a Car Accident in Denver

For injuries of the extremities, physical rehabilitation may include building muscular endurance, training in coordination and balance, cardiovascular reconditioning, strengthening exercises to improve muscle and joint function and pain management. Traumatic brain injuries can require even more rehabilitative interventions. Some of the many types of therapies and rehabilitation include:

  • Occupational therapy assists people in returning to everyday activities including writing, eating, holding, bathing, and driving.
  • Neurological rehabilitation assists those with spinal cord injuries, neck and back injuries and peripheral nerve disorders resulting from an automobile accident. Fine motor skills training, techniques for increased independents, gross motor skills training and sensory stimulation and retraining are all a part of neurological rehabilitation.
  • Orthopedic rehabilitation focuses on problems with muscles, bone, ligaments, and tendons. The goal of orthopedic rehabilitation is to restore the patient’s activity, motion and strength following an automobile accident. Orthopedic rehabilitation programs may include stretching and strengthening exercises and balance training.
  • Auto Injury rehabilitation focuses on relieving symptoms associated with whiplash, function, and mobility and decreasing back pain.
  • Aquatic therapy is often used as a means of rehabilitation for those who have been involved in an automobile accident. Aquatic therapy is low impact, therefore protects the soft tissues of the body. Back and knee problems in particular can benefit from aquatic therapy.
  • Physical therapy is usually continued as outpatient therapy following a car accident. Physical therapy identifies and targets specific deficits, and focuses on short-term, achievable goals. Disorders and injuries which affect the musculoskeletal system can benefit from physical therapy. Physical therapy concentrates on building muscular endurance and strengthening joints and muscles.
  • Surgery and post-op rehabilitation can be helpful for those who have undergone surgical procedures following a car accident.  Post-surgical protocols are adhered to, focusing on individualized treatments with a goal of returning the patient to their prior levels of strength, function and mobility.
  • Brain-trauma rehabilitation usually begins as soon as the patient has been medically stabilized. A rehabilitation team will assess the individual’s condition, then design interventions to promote healing. Confusion and fatigue are common among those with brain trauma, therefore those with brain trauma may see a neurologist, a psychiatrist, a clinical social worker, a psychologist, occupational and physical therapists and speech and language therapists.

Those who have suffered serious injury from an automobile accident may face months, years or even a lifetime of rehabilitation. This can be extremely expensive, therefore it can be beneficial to speak to a knowledgeable Denver auto accident attorney as soon as possible after your accident.
