Motor Vehicle Accident
The injuries caused by car accidents can have devastating effects on our bodies and our lives. Depending on the severity of the car accident, you may require a host of rehabilitative services including physiotherapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic care.
After 65 years of continuing service, the Ottawa area residents know Keenan as a name they can trust. Injuries sustained from car accidents can cause a wide variety of conditions including sprain and strain injuries and even fractures. Patients involved in car accidents report symptoms such as pain and stiffness in the neck, lower back pain, upper and lower extremity issues, jaw pain, chronic headaches and migraines, tingling sensations throughout affected body parts, and even sleep issues, memory lapses, and mood changes.
Our patients love our collaborative approach. Our highly experienced physiotherapists, massage therapists, and chiropractors work together as a team for you to devise a multi-pronged approach to handling your conditions, symptoms and pain. Our goal is to get you back to your pre-accident life as soon as possible. Keenan Health Centre is home to Eastern Ontario’s only chiropractic rehabilitation specialist, therefore individuals with complex conditions can obtain a prompt diagnosis and appropriate and timely treatment plans.
We Use a Three-Pronged Approach
We believe in patient-centered care. What that means for you is a treatment plan that you’re comfortable with. We never pressure you into trying anything you’re uncomfortable with. We incorporate three vital methodologies into your care.
- Physiotherapy: Our physiotherapists know which exercises work best for your injury. Patients with muscle and joint pain have responded well to soft tissue release (STR), which has helped our patients lessen their pain, increase circulation, and heal faster and better.
- Massage Therapy: Part of our treatment plan for you might include massage therapy. Our registered massage therapists (RMTs) know which muscles and tendons to target. We’re skilled at treating the soft tissues of the body essential to muscular health. Our RMTs use an instrument-assisted technique called the Graston Technique. One added benefit of exhaustive massage therapy is the effect it has been shown to have on depression and anxiety.
- Chiropractic Care: Often, patients who experience neck and back injuries during accidents require realignment. Our chiropractors are skilled at realigning the neuromusculoskeletal system. Spine injuries can wreak havoc on your daily life. Together with the stretching exercises performed in your physiotherapy and massage therapy appointments, chiropractic care is extremely effective in mitigating the damage caused by high-impact car accidents.
