Motor Vehicle Injuries
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, such as physiotherapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic care.
Injuries sustained from car accidents can cause a wide variety of conditions including sprain and strain injuries and 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, sleep issues, memory lapses, and mood changes.

We Use a Three-Pronged Approach
We believe in patient-centred 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 often respond well to soft tissue release, 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 are also trained in the Graston technique, an instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that uses stainless steel instruments to detect muscular lesions and connective tissue adhesions to allow more effective localization and treatment of these areas. In addition to treating a variety of injuries, massage therapy has been shown to reduce tension, stress, 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 during your physiotherapy and massage therapy appointments, chiropractic care is extremely effective in mitigating the damage caused by high-impact car accidents.
Our team of professionals are trained in all aspects of physical health. You do not need to suffer from persistent pain or reduced range of motion any longer. In addition to providing expert care to patients suffering from car accident injuries, we also treat patients suffering from chronic back and leg pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis and chronic digestive ailments.
