Motor Vehicle Accident

What are MVA injuries?

Motor vehicle accident (MVA) injuries are common because of car accidents and similar incidents involving moving or stationary vehicles. If you get in a car accident, it’s important to get a medical evaluation soon, even if you don’t think you’re injured. 

The team at You. Center for Health and Wellness evaluates you for any musculoskeletal pain or injuries resulting from your accident. They can then put together an interdisciplinary treatment and rehabilitation plan to alleviate pain, help you heal, and prevent long-term complications resulting from your MVA injuries. 

What are some common MVA injuries?

Motor vehicle accidents can cause many musculoskeletal injuries due to the sudden impact. You may get jolted forward and backward or side to side during your car accident, which can strain your muscles and cause specific injuries. An MVA can also result in long-lasting symptoms or conditions that aren’t injuries per se but can still benefit from a wellness plan. 

Some common injuries and conditions resulting from an MVA are:

  • Whiplash injuries
  • Headaches
  • Fractures
  • Sprains and strains
  • Disc injuries
  • Joint injuries
  • Concussions and post-concussion disorders
  • Depression
  • Sleep disturbances

You might have more than one injury or condition affecting you after an accident. In many cases, a car accident is a life-altering event. The team at You. Center for Health and Wellness supports you as you go through treatment and rehabilitation to get back to normalcy.
