  • Will my insurance cover the therapy
  • How many sessions will I need
  •  Will, there be a customized home treatment plan
  • Male or female physical therapist, which is right for you

Take Charge

Physical therapists are valuable healthcare professionals and members of the medical community.

Physical therapy can be challenging but don’t let that get you down, because they will help get you back to optimal health, along with building a stronger, healthier body.


 

El Paso, TX Whiplash Chiropractic Massage Therapy

 

 

Physical therapist Sandra Rubio describes how whiplash-associated disorders resulting from an automobile accident can cause symptoms of neck pain.

An injury to the cervical spine can damage the complex structures of the neck, including:

  • Vertebrae
  • Intervertebral discs
  • Soft tissues
  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles

Neck pain can come from various structures in the neck including vascular, nerve, airway, digestive, and musculature or it can originate from other areas of the human body.

Most cases can be treated with assistance or using self-help suggestions and techniques.

Physical therapy includes both active and passive treatments. Passive treatments help to unwind the body and the physique. As an individual does not need to actively participate, they’re known as passive. A physical treatment program may begin with treatments that are passive, but the goal is to get into treatments that are more active.
