Getting you back to Total Function!
Trauma is usually unexpected and severe in nature. The car accident, a rolled vehicle accident, falling off your speeding bike or because you couldn’t get your toe clips out and tipped over, tripping over uneven pavement, falling down the stairs or off a ladder and landed in an awkward position or you jumped with your snow board and landed on a hill, against a tree or in loose snow.
The trauma can have the result of broken bones or ligament sprains or tears and these significant injuries need immobilization or surgery or if you are lucky and with rest the acute phase will settle down.
Recovering from traumatic injuries takes time, so don’t become discouraged. Our physical therapists are movement experts. They can break down movement into very small parts and bring it back to the big picture. For instance, when focusing on joint mobility in the knees, you may have to restructure the way you walk. In many cases a tramautic injury can cause emotional damage as well. While fear and anxiety are natural, you should notify a medical professional if you are feeling depressed.
