Do You Need Therapy?

The decision to get therapy will usually depend on your treatment plan and your diagnosis. Your healthcare provider can help you determine whether different kinds of therapies may be able to help you as you recover from injuries.

In general, therapy is important if you need extra help returning to everyday activities after your injuries have started to heal. This form of treatment is a type of rehabilitation that can help you cope with your injuries or even improve your function so you can return to your life.

What Kinds of Therapy Do You Need?

Therapy is a broad term that covers both physical and mental health treatment. In general, car accident survivors in South Florida turn to different kinds of therapy, including:

  • Physiotherapy. This therapy aims to increase your flexibility and range of motion. A professional physiotherapist will assess your injuries to create a therapy plan that could include specific exercises, bracing or taping affected areas, manual therapy, and recommendations for adapting to long-term or permanent injury.
  • Mental health therapy. This type of therapy can involve behavioral therapy, exposure therapy, and other treatments to help you cope with the trauma of a car accident. It can help you deal with anxiety, trauma, and other challenges you may be facing after a serious accident.
  • Occupational therapy. The goal of this rehabilitation is to help you regain as much function as possible and to cope with any permanent injury or loss of function that may happen with your injury. You will develop a custom plan with an occupational therapist, and this plan may involve adaptive tools and technologies, adaptive techniques, coping strategies, and therapeutic supports.
  • Massage therapy. Massage therapy involves having a trained therapist manipulate and apply pressure to affected areas to relieve stress and to stimulate blood flow to injured muscles, which can improve the healing process. Usually combined with other therapies, massage therapy can improve range of motion and can help treat chronic pain.

What’s the Cost of Care?

Therapies can be extremely effective and even life-changing for anyone who has been injured in a car accident, but many people face a challenge with cost. Some therapies can cost $200+ per session and patients may need multiple therapies and many sessions over weeks or months. This can easily add up to thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars, and medical insurance does not always cover these costs.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
