Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of acute injuries and chronic pain in Canada, with over 150,000 motor vehicle accidents being reported each year.
Even relatively minor accidents can create ongoing medical problems, such as whiplash, headaches, neck pain, back pain, concussions, sprains, and strains. Furthermore, these injuries may not become apparent until weeks or months after the initial accident. Therefore, many physicians recommend seeking specialized treatment after any motor vehicle accident to restore proper spine alignment, joint mobility, and muscle function. Pursuing physiotherapy, massage, and chiropractic treatment immediately after a motor vehicle accident greatly increases the likelihood of experiencing a full recovery.
