Car Accident Care / Motor Vehicle Accident
Even minor fender benders can cause unexpected injuries that can worsen over time if left untreated. These injuries may lead to complications like arthritis, degeneration, and other forms of damage. The longer your spine remains out of alignment, the longer the recovery time will be. At Focused On Health, Midtown Family Chiropractic Centre, our team of trained professionals is dedicated to providing you with the best possible care following a car accident, ensuring that you receive the necessary treatment to get you on the road to recovery.
No Out-of-Pocket Expenses
At our clinic, we understand that the cost of healthcare can be a burden, especially after a car accident. That's why we offer a hassle-free approach to payment, with insurance companies paying us directly. All you need to do is provide us with the claim number, and once approved, all chiropractic fees will be covered under Ontario Auto Insurance. We can also refer you to other practitioners for complementary treatments, such as acupuncture, massage, or physiotherapy, to enhance your overall care. *Please note that patients with extended health benefits may need to exhaust their coverage before utilizing Ontario Auto Insurance benefits.
Delayed injuries from car accidents are not uncommon, and often, individuals who didn't seek immediate medical attention may experience internal damage to their muscles, ligaments, and discs years later. That's why our team of Toronto chiropractors conducts a thorough examination, which may include X-rays (if necessary and covered under OHIP), to assess the extent of damage to your body and spine. Once the assessment is complete, we can provide gentle adjustments to treat any musculoskeletal misalignments, helping to alleviate any discomfort or pain caused by the accident.
Untreated Injuries Cause Chronic Problems
Common Injuries Treated
Car collisions can lead to a variety of issues, but the good news is that many of these can be successfully treated. Whether you're experiencing pain, discomfort, stiffness, or other symptoms, our team of experts can provide effective solutions tailored to your specific needs.
Whiplash, caused by the sharp movement of a collision, can result in sprained ligaments, muscles, and tendons in the neck. Unfortunately, research indicates that 43% of patients with whiplash may experience long-term symptoms. However, the good news is that chiropractic treatment has been shown to be effective, with 93% of patients reporting improvement in their symptoms.
Dizziness can be caused by a variety of factors, including neck muscle spasms or conflicting signals sent from the eyes and neck to the brain compared to those transmitted by the inner ear. While dizziness may be a temporary issue, it can still have a significant impact on one's quality of life. Fortunately, chiropractic care has been shown to be an effective way to alleviate the symptoms of dizziness and improve overall well-being.
The soft tissues in your neck contain nerves, ligaments and muscles. These, along with the joints and discs of the upper spine, can be affected by an auto accident, and in many cases, with pain that spreads to the shoulders, shoulder blades and into the head.
When your body is twisted, compressed or stretched by the forces of a collision, back pain is a common result. The seat belt, which holds your lower back in place, and the upper back and neck that are whipped back and forth, are often the cause.
