Car Accident Injuries (MVC)

If you’ve recently had a car accident, you may discover difficulties with pain and daily functioning. There are numerous injuries that can result from auto vehicle accidents, with whiplash being one of the most common. The term Whiplash describes neck pain and injury after an accident but it is actually the spraining of your neck’s soft tissues (ligaments, tendons, muscles, discs, and small joints). Some injuries can be long-lasting.

Physiotherapy and Car Accidents

There are many reasons to go to physiotherapy after you’ve been in an auto accident. Physiotherapy supports the recovery process and can also prevent long-term damage from a car accident, including migraines and chronic pain.

It has been found that not all injury symptoms appear right after a car accident. Physiotherapy can help you manage pain symptoms, improve flexibility, increase strength, and recover faster.

Physiotherapists, Chiropractors and Massage Therapists are highly skilled at examining and treating car accident injuries. Our therapeutic exercises and modalities help bring oxygen and nutrients to the injury site and enhance healing. Every exercise and stretch prescribed by our therapists has a specific goal to assist in your recovery, overall function and mobility.

Our team can help you get on your feet and resume with your normal life regardless of your injuries. With their expertise and knowledge, they can effectively work with you to devise a treatment plan that is right for your needs.


Frequently Asked Questions

You do not require a doctor’s referral to attend physiotherapy, chiropractic or massage therapy. However, if you intend to use your health insurance to cover the cost you should confirm your insurers policy as some may ask you for a doctor’s referral.

The advantage of choosing a service provider that works in a collaborative practice environment like PROTx is that regardless of who you see initially, you will always be directed to the most appropriate therapist. This team environment gives you, the client, the best possible options.

Your therapist will perform an assessment. You will be asked a series of questions that will help better describe all of your symptoms in detail. This will be followed by an examination of the areas causing concern and associated areas. Following the assessment, the findings, your goals and available treatment options will be discussed.

The first appointment can take up to an hour. Subsequent treatments can be shorter or longer depending upon the condition and the treatment required.
