motor vehicle accidents

People involved in motor vehicle accidents may suffer numerous injuries including whiplash, back injuries, shoulder, wrist, elbow, knee, TMJ injuries and more. Symptoms of dizziness, headaches, nausea and facial pain may be related to neck and jaw injuries.  

All of these injuries should be assessed and reported within ten days of the accident to your insurance company, to ensure coverage of treatment costs by your insurer. 

Prompt attention to these injuries will speed the recovery and healing process and get your back to normal activities. Treatment may include use of physiotherapy modalities, manual therapy, exercise prescription, as well as education of what to expect and how to modify aggravating activities while you are healing.

After you have been in a motor vehicle accident, one of our experienced physiotherapists will spend dedicated one-one-one time with you to assess the injuries from the crash and determine a pain resolution plan.  All of the reports required will be done in a quick and clear manner.
