Physical Therapist for Personal Injury Victims in Las Vegas

Physical Therapy for Personal Injury Victims

Being in a car crash, slipping and falling at the store, or getting hurt in a physical altercation can take an enormous toll on your body. Physical therapy services can help you get back on your feet and recover after an accident uproots your life. After a personal injury incident, a physical therapist can evaluate your condition and determine the best treatment regimen to get you back to feeling your best.
Lyons Physical Therapy specializes in providing proven methods to assist patients recover from a personal injury. Our Las Vegas outpatient physical therapy team uses the latest technologies and treatment protocols, such as HawkGrips, cryotherapy, traction, and manual therapy. Because we know there’s no such thing as a “typical” injury, we tailor each regimen to fit each patient’s medical history, lifestyle, and clinical presentations.

Causes of Personal Injury Accidents

Patients may need to see a physical therapist because they were hurt in an accident. Common causes of our patients’ conditions include auto wrecks, slips and falls, and physical assaults or batteries. Each of these situations requires the physical therapist to carefully assess the underlying reason for the patient’s limitations. From there, they can develop an appropriate plan of action.

Car Accidents

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 2022 report (published in 2024) estimates that 2.38 million people were injured in roadway incidents. Motor vehicle crashes can cause whiplash, sprains, cracked ribs, amputations, and broken legs.
Surgery can address urgent concerns—such as resetting bones so they heal properly, but casualties may still be unable to do what they could before the accident. They can turn to a physical therapist to help them overcome residual limitations. Attending physical therapy right after a car accident may also be beneficial to move the healing process in the right direction from the start.

Slip and Falls

Slips, trips, and falls account for many injuries each year. Fall victims may sustain broken wrists, torn rotator cuffs, sprained ankles, and torn ACLs. Each of these conditions can greatly impair the victim’s ability to function. Alongside aggressive surgery, a personalized physical therapy regimen can help the patient work the right parts of the body to support an effective recovery journey.

Assault and Battery

Patients may also get injured from an attack by another person or an animal. These assaults may leave the victim with broken or sprained fingers, arms, wrists, legs, or feet. Getting hurt in this way can create significant mental stress and impair the person’s ability to function physically. A physical therapist can evaluate the patient’s current condition and help them get to where they want to be through engaging in responsive treatments.

Affordable Payment Options for Physical Therapy

Working with a physical therapist can benefit your health, but you may have concerns about how you’ll be able to pay for these services. Physical therapy offices may provide a number of different ways to do this.
If you have it, insurance may cover some or all of the treatment. You may have to pay a copay or a certain amount before insurance kicks in.
The physical therapist’s office may have a sliding-scale billing service, which adjusts the cost based on the patient’s means. Additionally, you may be able to pay for your treatments in monthly installments. If you have concerns about affording treatment, talk to your physical therapist about their payment plans. They may be able to work with you to find an arrangement that allows you to access the care you need.

Our Process

Lyons Physical Therapy has a comprehensive and streamlined intake, evaluation, and treatment process. When you first meet with us, we gather information about your medical history, the reason for your visit, and your goals for physical therapy. We may get these details from you or your doctor.
During your appointment, we’ll perform a comprehensive evaluation so we can get a firsthand idea of your pain and functional levels. We’ll also review diagnostic test results—like X-rays and other scans—to understand what’s going on underneath the surface.
Using these pieces of information, we’ll work with you to develop a treatment plan that aligns with your goals and capabilities. During your treatment, we’ll perform reassessments along the way to check your progress and make sure you’re moving in the proper direction. If you’re having trouble keeping up with your in-office or at-home exercises, we’ll adjust our plan and equip you with strategies to get you back on track.

Can a Physical Therapist Evaluate an Injury?

Physical therapists have the tools and training to evaluate and treat many different types of injuries. In many cases, they work alongside surgeons and other members of a patient’s medical team to understand and appropriately treat the patient’s injuries.
Physical therapists may use science-driven, alternative approaches to help the body heal itself. For example, by working the muscles and tendons in certain ways, a patient may avoid a potentially costly and invasive procedure. Additionally, physical therapists work alongside the patient’s surgical and medical team to augment their recovery and improve outcomes.

What Does Physical Therapy Do for an Injury?

Physical therapy can encourage the body to heal itself and help the patient regain the strength, range of motion, and function they lost because of the injury. PT treatments can also help to manage pain levels by working the joints, muscles, and tendons to remove tension and inflammation.
