Can Physical Therapy Help with the Emotional Effects of My Injury?

Can Physical Therapy Help with the Emotional Effects of My Injury?

In many cases, the types of situations that leave people seriously injured also leave them with confusing emotional side effects.

For example, people who have been in car accidents and experience soft tissue injuries to the brain, such as a concussion, often begin to experience a reduced capacity for emotional self-regulation, along with intense mood swings, disproportionate reactions, personality changes, and more. People who have been disabled or become bed-ridden after an injury may become depressed or anxious as a result of their new limitations and resulting social isolation.

However, these emotional side effects do not have to go ignored. They are just as serious and detrimental to your health as the physical pain and discomfort you may experience before physical therapy. By pursuing treatment and actively working with a physical therapist to reduce the pain, you can also reduce the emotional toll your injury takes on your life.

The Role of Physical Therapy in Healing

Physical therapy does more than just heal muscles and tissues and get them back to full function. It is no secret that living with pain, discomfort, and reduced physical capabilities takes an emotional toll on affected persons. We believe that alleviating pain and restoring mobility paves the way for regaining emotional health in the aftermath of a serious accident.

To be clear, physical therapy does not replace mental health counseling. However, we do believe that alleviating pain and restoring mobility paves the way for regaining emotional health in the aftermath of a serious accident.
