Why are motorcycle accident injuries so severe?
A motorcycle accident is often more serious than car or truck accidents because the latter are designed to provide you specific safety measures during a road crash. Moreover, statistics show that nearly one out of every five motorcyclists has a head or a neck injury during an accident.
There is a significantly higher risk of fatality when an accident involves a cyclist. The biggest reason why these accidents are so severe is that your body hits the ground resulting in head injuries, muscle damage, road rash, arm or leg injury, spinal injury, broken bones, and facial scarring. Most motorcycle accidents are actually not the fault of the cyclist.
How to prevent a motorcycle accident?
If you are a regular motorcyclist, you are advised not to ride a motorcycle for extended hours because this will wear out your body. Riders must stay healthy by following physiotherapists-approved tips. Focus Physiotherapy recommends stretching before and after riding and to take breaks during a long trip. Motorcyclists should also consult physiotherapists to prevent injury in case of consistent pain that doesn’t go away. They must always wear a helmet and knee braces to prevent deadly injuries.

As a physiotherapist owned clinic we know many places that say they offer “physiotherapy.” Take a closer look. You will see many do not have registered physiotherapists on staff and if they do they only employ them part-time. These “clinics” are not equipped to deal with serious injuries. You should not trust them with your recovery needs.
