Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries

A car accident can be a traumatic experience affecting both the body and mind. The Transportation Safety Board estimates there are about 112,000 car accidents in Canada each year. Many victims suffer muscle, nerve and spinal injuries -- making the journey to recovery a challenging one. Whether you’re involved in a minor fender-bender or a serious head-on collision, receiving a thorough clinical assessment and comprehensive care from experienced professionals is critical for ensuring a complete recovery and restoring your quality of life. If you’ve been involved in a car accident, our interdisciplinary team of experienced health professionals is here for you. 

Whiplash & Other Injuries

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident. This type of trauma happens when your head and neck jerk forward and then snap back very quickly. It happens often in car collisions due to the rapid force of acceleration and deceleration. In severe cases, whiplash can cause traumatic brain injury, which often goes unrecognized and untreated following an auto accident. 

Some other common injuries include:

  • muscle strains
  • joint sprains
  • fractures and lacerations

The key to recovery includes localizing pain, assessing the extent of the damage and any related impacts and establishing & implementing a comprehensive treatment place as quickly as possible. That’s why it’s crucial to seek care immediately.

How Physiomed Can Help

At Physiomed, our interdisciplinary team of dedicated healthcare professionals has the experience and expertise to address a wide variety of car accident injuries. Following a thorough assessment of your condition, we can develop a personalized treatment plan to provide initial relief and a lasting recovery. 

Here are just some of the ways we can enhance your recovery:

  • looking beyond the obvious trauma and factoring in tangential impacts, structural impacts and pre-existing conditions to ensure sustained relief and recovery
  • looking beyond physical trauma and addressing the emotional impact of an accident to help restore emotional and mental wellbeing
  • applying multiple therapies, treatments and modalities including physiotherapy, registered massage therapy and chiropractic care

At Physiomed, our team of physiotherapists, chiropractors, medical doctors, massage therapists and psychologists & psychotherapists work together to ensure you always receive the highest quality and most comprehensive care possible; and our services are also covered by your motor vehicle insurance.

Here's Physiomed North York honouring one of our favourite patients 💙

It's been 11 years since we first saw this lovely lady. Since then, she’s brought in her mother, kids, and co-workers for care. We've seen her retire, come out of retirement, then retire again. She followed us as we moved 3 times! We’ve been through so much together.

Thanks Eula for your support over these last 11 years. It’s because of patients like you we come to work everyday.

Here's to another 11 years! 🥂

We've been open for over a month. But are you still wondering what appointments look like during COVID-19?

Here's an example of how things look at Physiomed Maple!

The big change you’ll notice is at the beginning when you first walk in the door:

1️⃣ We'll greet you, as usual, but do ask that you walk to the front desk and wait.

2️⃣ We'll confirm we have received your COVID-19 screening questionnaire. If we haven't, we'll verbally go through it with you.

3️⃣ We'll also perform a temperature check.

4️⃣ Afterwards, we ask that you have a seat in the waiting room and your practitioner will take over from there.
