Motor vehicle accidents can lead to a range of injuries, some immediately noticeable and others that may become apparent over time. At Kin Lab, we specialize in helping individuals recover from these injuries through personalized rehabilitation programs through active rehab. In this post, we’ll delve into some common injuries from motor vehicle accidents and how rehabilitation can aid in your recovery.
Common Injuries from Motor Vehicle Accidents:
- Whiplash: Often occurring in rear-end collisions, whiplash is a neck injury caused by rapid back-and-forth movement. Symptoms can include neck pain, stiffness, and headaches.
