Car Accident Injury Treatment
What To Expect After a Car Accident:
- If you have been in a car crash one of the most common injuries is to the upper spine, and neck.
- Other common symptoms include joint pain, muscle pain, headaches, arm pain and leg pain.
- These symptoms occur when the vertebral joints and associated muscles and nerves are subjected to uncommon forces and movements associated with a car accident.
- Some people develop pain, stiffness and other symptoms 7-10 days after an accident. This is not unusual. Do not delay in seeking help and treatment.
- Effects of substantive crashes may recur over 6-18 months. For most people, the pain and other symptoms associated with spinal injury usually decreases with gradual return to normal activity.
- The amount of disruption to normal activities varies with the circumstances of the crash.
Our Goal is Your Maximum Possible Recovery
We want you to focus your energy on healing. If you have been in an accident, it is important to see a physiotherapist as soon as possible.

We diagnose the injuries you have sustained as a result of the motor vehicle accident and treat those injuries and their resulting disabilities. It is also our job to properly document your injuries, disabilities and treatment. Without proper documentation there is no legal proof or evidence of your injuries or disabilities. We will obtain and compile documentation that is valid and medically necessary regarding your injuries. Valid documentation includes diagnostic studies such as X-ray, MRI, and CT scans. Objective findings, including determination of any loss of movement of a joint or “palpating” muscle to feel for tightness, rigidity, or “spasm” are intricate parts of your exam. If any permanency is noted it will be well documented and a request for on-going treatment will be in order.
Call us today to schedule your initial consultation at one of our 5 locations – including our brand new physiotherapy clinic at Yonge & Sheppard.
