David Bolwell Physiotherapy Services
Whiplash injuries are another common consequence of car accidents. Whiplash occurs when your head/neck are quickly thrown one way and then the other, and this can very easily happen when your vehicle is hit by another driver.

Safety belts are important because they prevent serious injuries, but your seatbelt may jar your shoulder during an impact.

The extent of the injuries you receive during a car accident will vary depending on the size, direction and speed of the impact. Capillaries, ligaments, muscles, joints and nerves can all be affected. This can result in:
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Stiffness with reduced movement
  • Neurological symptoms (e.g. numbness, ‘pins and needles’)

How can physiotherapy help?

Early physiotherapy intervention after a car accident can reduce pain, restore movement, and speed recovery, allowing you to return to your normal day-to-day activities as soon as possible.

When treating injuries sustained in road traffic accidents, our physiotherapists use the following techniques:
  • Massage
  • Stretches
  • Ultrasound
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Joint mobilisation to restore movement
In addition to the above, we may recommend acupuncture to help relax your muscles and reduce the sensation of pain.

Your treatment plan will be tailored to suit your specific condition/injuries. In most cases, we are able to liaise with your solicitors or rehabilitation company to provide reports and arrange payment, enabling you to focus on your recovery.

What our patients say

“I went to see David in December ’15 after being involved in a car accident. I had already been suffering with pain in my arm from a trapped nerve but after the accident it became much worse. I was taking strong painkillers, was unable to sleep and driving was becoming extremely painful.

David showed me some exercises I could do and then suggested a course of acupuncture. I was very sceptical at first but was willing to try anything to ease the pain in my arm as it was becoming almost unbearable.

The acupuncture itself didn’t hurt at all and after a few weeks of weekly ½ hour sessions I began to feel some improvement. As the treatment continued, the pain in my arm lessoned until I became completely pain free. I’ve gone from taking painkillers throughout the day and night to needing no pain relief at all. I don’t know how it works, just that it has and I’m so grateful that I’m no longer in constant pain.

David’s knowledge and expertise has worked wonders for me and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to anyone needing physiotherapy treatment.”
