Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you have been in an motor vehicle accident, you have access to physiotherapy through your car insurance policy. You do not need to see a physician first, unless you so choose. You may see one of our physiotherapists or chiropractors directly, and as soon as possible. We will assess you and if further investigation is required by a doctor, we will make the appropriate referral or send a letter to your own physician.
Research shows that even low impact accidents at speeds as low as 15 mph can cause bodily injury. If left untreated, these injuries could lead to future problems like headaches, tingling and numbness, muscle weakness, and even disc problems.
Visiting a Healthcare Professional is Essential Following a Motor Vehicle Accident
Don’t be fooled into thinking, “I went to the emergency room and they said I was okay. They even took x-rays and said I would be fine.” We often hear this from our patients and then a couple of weeks post-accident they show up in the office because of pain. Emergency Department doctors are trained to focus on emergency, life-threatening conditions. Most Md’s are not trained to deal with this type of musculoskeletal problem nor is the hospital emergency room equipped for this type of treatment. That is why a visit to Work-Fit Total Therapy Centre is essential following an motor vehicle accident.
Motor vehicle accident injuries are treated after a complete and thorough assessment is performed. This allows us to identify the exact extent of your injuries and design a treatment plan that is unique to your condition. This is usually followed by a series of physiotherapy, chiropractic or Massage therapy treatments and exercises. Treatment times vary greatly and are adjusted according to your individual progress.
Whiplash or other musculoskeletal injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident. If you have suffered a whiplash injury, physiotherapy or chiropractic care at one of Work-Fit Total Therapy locations is a good choice to reduce pain and return proper mechanics to the spine. Our goal is to optimize motion, reduce muscle spasm and improve muscular strength.
Whenever a patient enters Work-Fit Total Therapy Centre with the complaint of frequent headaches; I can’t begin to imagine how they function on a daily basis. A few treatments and we see almost immediate improvement for headaches that originate in the neck, and patients significantly had fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension type headaches than a commonly prescribed medication.
Low Back Pain
For the treatment of lower back pain, Physiotherapy or chiropractic care are the solution. Last year 1 in 4 adults experienced low back pain; and it is one of the most common reasons people come to our office.
