Motor Vehicle Accidents

The results of a motor vehicular accident vary greatly.  Our therapists have the skills and experience to work with you if you have been involved in an accident. 

Many different types of injuries occur because of motor vehicle accidents.  Common injuries include spinal, chest, rib and head injuries. Symptoms may involve but not limited to pain, decrease mobility, dizziness, vision problems, headaches, breathing difficulty and poor concentration.

How Physiotherapy Helps

Even if you don’t think you have been seriously injured in a car accident, it is advised to seek physiotherapy services.   At Motion Matters our team of Registered Physiotherapists can improve your recovery by:

  • Reduce acute and chronic pain – Therapeutic exercises for oxygen into the blood and tissues allowing nutrients to better gain any injury site and facilitate healing.  Exercises and stretches are goal-oriented to improve mobility. 
  • Function – Even though the accident may not be recent, you could have functional difficulties. Using rehabilitating techniques and strengthened training, mobility can be improved.  This means less reliance on pain medications through a non-invasive procedure.
  • Prevent movement dysfunction and impairment
  • Vertigo – Finding the dysfunction in the vestibular system can significantly improve vertigo.

Each treatment plan is custom designed for the individual.

Some of the treatment options can be:

  • Manual Therapy
  • Education
  • Manipulation
  • Electro Modalities
  • Acupuncture
  • Heat and cold therapy
  • Exercise prescription
