MOST COMMON MVA INJURY
We certainly deal with a lot of injuries when it comes to MVA, though the most common is whiplash. Neck related injuries associated with MVA are classified as whiplash-associated disorders (WAD), and graded on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the worst, requiring surgery (1). Grades 1 through 3 show they respond well to physical therapy.
However, whiplash can be one of the most difficult injuries to treat. Even though success rates are very high, some patients may not recover in a timely manner. This may stem from pre-existing neck injuries, overlooked symptoms, or the classification of their injury. Speaking to your therapist about your concerns will help reevaluate your injury. Therapists may suggest alternative disciplines to improve your recovery rate. This is a benefit of offering multiple disciplines at our facilities.
HOW TO INCREASE YOUR REHAB SUCCESS
The most important prerequisite of MVA rehabilitation success is a positive attitude. Patients who believe they will get better often make a impactful effort with their treatment plan. For example, keeping an active lifestyle. By setting realistic goals for your recovery, you and your therapist can discuss your progress and make necessary adjustments if need be. Taking advantage of multiple therapies will help fast track recovery. By speaking to your therapist, they can make professional suggestions based on your physical level. Your therapist will often provide an at-home exercise plan, by committing to it patients see daily improvement in their physical wellbeing.
