Motor Vehicle Accident Rehab FAQ'S

What should I do after I've been in a motor vehicle accident?

You should see a physiotherapist immediately to make sure your injuries are diagnosed and a proper rehabilitation program is created for you. Your car insurance will cover the fees involved for the initial physio treatments. You should also see your family doctor to access your injuries and order further medical tests if needed. Your doctor can also prescribe inflammation and/or pain medication.

What are treatments for whiplash?

Since most whiplash injuries accompany acute pain, the first goal is to relieve and/or manage pain and increase the range of motion of the neck and back. Hot and/or cold therapy and soft tissue mobilization techniques help in reducing inflamation.

Proper treatment early on can increase range of motion and reduce inflamation. Physical therapy and gentle excercise therapy programs should start early on. Massage therapy, acupuncture can also be used to decrease pain.
