What treatments are used for injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents?
Many types of injuries can result from car accidents. One of our physiotherapists will discuss your accident and symptoms with you and conduct an assessment to diagnose any injuries. We will then work with you to develop an appropriate treatment program to help you rehabilitate quickly and properly.
One of the most common vehicle collision injuries is whiplash. Whiplash typically occurs when the driver or passengers are hit from behind, causing the neck to accelerate forward and backward. You may not experience symptoms of whiplash until a few days after the accident. We recommend getting assessed by a physiotherapist as soon as possible, even if no whiplash symptoms are present. An immediate assessment can identify whiplash and reduce the amount of pain or discomfort you experience.
What can I expect from treatments for motor vehicle accidents?
Your treatment depends on your presenting condition. Your physiotherapist will carefully assess your injuries and the circumstances of your accident to develop a holistic understanding of your condition. Regardless of the treatment you require, our goal is to provide excellent physiotherapy in a safe, collaborative environment.
