Physio after a Car Accident – It’s your choice

Have you just been in a car accident?  Feeling rattled, in pain and overwhelmed?  Once you are past the first day or two after a fender bender, you may realize that you are developing areas of pain and having trouble with your daily functioning.  Most folks recover well – physiotherapy can help you do so more quickly.   Your insurance company will provide coverage for physiotherapy assessment and treatment.

If you did not do so at the time of your accident, you will need to contact your insurance company to find out what steps you need to take.  They may suggest a specific physiotherapy provider, but in Ontario, consumers have the right to go to the provider of their choice.  So, if you have a physio that you have worked with in the past, with whom you have a good rapport, and who knows your medical history, they may be your best choice for care after an accident.

At Best Health Physio, not only are our physiotherapists and registered massage therapist experienced in working with individuals after a car accident, but our Office Manager, Terri Caughey, has many years of experience helping people navigate the accident claim process.

Completing the required paperwork and understanding the process can be confusing.  We can help you do that in the most efficient way.  Additionally, we are set up to bill directly to the Health Claims for Auto Insurance online system, so you are not out of pocket for your physiotherapy expenses.

Even if your car accident was some time in the past, but you are still experiencing pain and difficulty stemming from that, a physiotherapist can help.  A thorough evaluation and development of a treatment plan tailored to your needs will help you move forward with less pain and increased participation in life.
