What to expect from motor vehicle accident physical therapy in Kearneysville
Assessment and Diagnosis
Our physical therapists will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your injuries, including a thorough medical history review, physical examination, and imaging studies, such as x-rays or MRI scans. This allows us to accurately diagnose your condition and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
Pain management is a critical component of Motor vehicle accident physical therapy. Our physical therapists use a variety of techniques to manage pain, including manual therapy, modalities such as heat and cold therapy, and therapeutic exercises. We work with our patients to identify their pain triggers and develop strategies to reduce pain and improve function.
Range of Motion Exercises
Motor vehicle accidents can often result in decreased range of motion due to muscle stiffness and joint restrictions. Our physical therapists will use various techniques such as passive and active range of motion exercises to restore your normal range of motion.
Soft Tissue Mobilization
In addition to joint restrictions, Motor vehicle accident injuries can also result in soft tissue damage such as muscle strains, ligament sprains, and contusions. Our physical therapists use various soft tissue mobilization techniques, such as massage therapy and myofascial release, to promote healing and improve flexibility.
After a motor vehicle accident, the affected muscles may become weak due to disuse or injury. Our physical therapists use strengthening exercises to rebuild the muscles’ strength, which helps restore function and reduce the risk of future injury.
Balance and Coordination Training
Motor vehicle accidents can also cause balance and coordination issues, which can lead to falls and other accidents. Our physical therapists use balance and coordination training to improve the patient’s ability to move safely and confidently.
Functional training involves exercises that simulate real-life movements, such as lifting, pushing, pulling, and reaching. Our physical therapists use functional training to help patients regain the ability to perform their daily activities and tasks, such as driving, cooking, and cleaning.
Return to Work/Sport
Returning to work or sports after a Motor vehicle accident injury can be challenging. Our physical therapists work closely with patients to develop a plan that gradually reintroduces them to their work or sports activities. We provide education and support to help patients maintain their progress and prevent future injuries.

Doc Christa is amazing. I’m glad I decided to go to Limitless for physical therapy, even though my insurance doesn’t cover any places in WV. I didn’t want to make the drive (I already commute enough into VA for work), and I’m happy to support local small businesses when I can. So, the back of my shoulder starting hurting back in June when I started doing strength training for the first time. I was probably doing something improperly and inadvertently pulled something. Lifting anything laterally with my right arm would cause me to tear up. A few months later, I decided to look for Physical Therapy places close by, and found Limitless. I read about Doc Christa and some of the reviews, and thought I’d give her a try. She explained clearly the what her process is, and after doing an assessment, she said that I would not need more than 5 visits. By the 3rd visit, I was feeling 90% better. Doing the assigned exercises every day also helped (she’s got an app for that!). I only have 1 more visit, and I’m already feeling like the pain was all in my head. I highly recommend Doc Christa (and her partner-in-crime, Doc Al) — they are very knowledgeable, and have fun, fresh ideas on how to help you move better and get stronger!
Outstanding experience! Christa does the extra mile to get down to the root cause of your symptoms and helped me tremendously in such encouraging way, I actually even do the exercises at home. She’s contagiously excited about helping and looks at the entire body, not just the symptoms. She has a great balance in exercises but also working on me to relieve pain and mobility issues with what method works best for me! I love her overall attitude and seriousness about actually helping to solve the problem entirely! Highly recommend her over any PT in the entire area! As an active runner I very much appreciate her work to get me out on the trail and working with me on avoiding future injuries. She doesn’t sideline active people, which is terrific! Also, she lifts… so she knows 😉 hence I even liked her dry needling because it helped right away!
