Boating Accident Physical Therapy


    Injuries from Water Sport and Boating

    Southern Florida is considered by many to be the best place for outdoor water activities. Regardless of how many precautions are taken, a day on the water can result in a boating injury. Here at Friends and Family Medical Centers, we offer a number of treatments that can be very effective as part of a comprehensive injury treatment plan for various types and severity levels of injuries that occurred on a boat or during a water sport activity.

    Some of the most common boating accidents we see result in injuries including but not limited to:

    • Capsizing
    • Falling from the boat
    • Collisions with other boats or vessels.
    • Being ejected from the boat
    • Collisions with fixed objects

    Our physical therapy team has seen and treated countless muscle strains, sprains and damage resulting from water activities.

    Boating injuries can commonly lead to whiplash, which is the same type of injury you get from a sudden jolt in any car accident. The sudden jolt causes the neck to extend in an unnatural position, resulting in strain or damage to ligaments and muscle structures that support the neck. Neck pain is one of the more common symptoms, however this type of injury can also result in headaches, stiffness, and back pain. Regardless if whiplash comes from a boat or car, Friends and Family Medical Centers can treat your injuries.
