Support You Need, When You Need It Most

If you have been in a motor vehicle accident, you may feel the effects for a long time. Pain associated with a collision is common, but does not have to be a permanent addition to your life.

After your accident, seeking treatment as soon as possible is imperative to minimizing lasting effects and chronic pain. Treating problems in their acute phases can help you find relief and prevent prolonging uncomfortable and debilitating symptoms.

When you visit Optimum Wellness Centres for a consultation, you will be met with friendly staff to check and make sure that all of your required information is on file. We will then have a no-obligation conversation about why you seek treatment and what you want to get out of it.

Whiplash and other vehicle accident-related injuries are assessed by one of our Chiropractors or Physiotherapist. They will ask you about the details of your accident and examine your pain source to gain the best understanding of your injury.

Whiplash associated disorders (WAD) are common occurrences as a result of a vehicle accident. WAD is often used interchangeably with whiplash, although whiplash technically refers to the injury itself rather than sustained symptoms.

When you visit us because of pain related to an accident, we work quickly and efficiently to determine your pain source. Once we have, we will discuss our prognosis with you and begin developing a treatment plan.

Treatment Options & Plans

If you have suffered an accident, it is our primary focus to get you feeling well again. Your treatment plan will vary depending on your accident and the severity of your injuries.

Our highly experienced and compassionate staff will work with you to develop a plan that works best for you and your lifestyle. They may recommend a variety of therapies, including chiropractic, physiotherapy, laser therapy, massage, and many other services at Optimum Wellness Centres.

FAQs

It depends on the accident and the injuries you sustained. Most patients recover from muscle strains and tears, especially with the added benefit of physical therapy.

Your treatment plan may involve several different types of therapy, but your therapist or doctor will discuss it with you during your consultation. The frequency required will depend on your injuries and treatment plan.

We want our services to be accessible to all, so you do not need a doctor’s referral to access treatment.

If you find you are having a hard time accepting your situation or dealing with the outcome of your accident, we have psychological support services that can help you adjust.

You can book either chiropractic or physiotherapy services for your WCB or motor vehicle accident injury depending on what you may need done. If you are not sure which service you need, we would be happy to assess you and make a recommendation based on our findings.
