Whiplash

Whiplash injuries occur to people when their car is hit from behind. The head is suddenly snapped forward, backward or sideways causing ligament injury. Patients may experience; neck pain, neck stiffness, headaches, blurred vision or pins and needles into the shoulders, hands and fingers. Untreated, whiplash injuries may progress with ongoing degeneration. Whiplash injuries are serious and should not be ignored. Assessment and treatments are usually covered by your insurance.

We invite you to schedule an appointment with us to discuss if you and your family can benefit from our care at the Core Optimum Health Centre.

How do I proceed with my MVA rehabilitation claim?

 

Inform your car insurance provider of the accident and any injuries that you have sustained.

 

Regardless of who was at fault for the accident, your insurance provider is responsible for making health and rehabilitation services available to you.  Once you have a health claim initiated with your insurance provider we can take care of the rest.

 

 

Call us to book an initial assessment.

 

In this one hour session your Registered Physiotherapist/Chiropractor will examine your car accident related injuries, discuss with you a treatment plan, begin therapy, and collect all the necessary information to fill out and submit an MVA rehabilitation insurance claim on your behalf.  If you have extended health insurance coverage you are legally required to exhaust these benefits first, and then the remainder of your therapy will be covered by your auto insurance provider.

 

Come to our clinic for follow-up treatment sessions.

 

Follow-up appointments will be booked to fit your schedule.  These appointments will incorporate a wide range of therapeutic modalities as appropriate, and may include massage therapy with one of our Registered Massage Therapists. As with all our patients, our objective is to use all of our available resources to get you better as fast as possible.

 

 

Focus on getting better.

We will work on your behalf to manage all reporting and documentation required to continue your claim, and to ensure that you get the necessary treatment you need.
