If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, it is important to start physiotherapy as soon as possible. Research has shown that immediate treatment after a car accident results in better recovery. The effects of an auto injury accident are often delayed or subtle. You may feel fine immediately after the accident, but in the days or weeks following the accident you may begin to suffer acutely and not be able to pinpoint why.
That is why we encourage you to seek our professional advice as quickly as possible to ensure that you are adequately treated and protected for the future. Combined with the other wellness services at Max Physiotherapy, we can get you back on your feet and in pre-accident condition.
Our physiotherapy team will closely monitor your progress and create a custom therapy program just for you, using different treatment modalities that are optimal for your unique situation.

Whiplash is a generalized term for a soft tissue injury to your neck following a sudden trauma to your neck. The most common whiplash injury is the result of a car accident. The symptoms of whiplash can be felt immediately after the motor vehicle accident or even 2 to 3 days after the accident.
Symptoms of whiplash can include pain in the neck, between the shoulder blades, and/or down the arm. Headaches and dizziness can also be experienced from a whiplash injury, as well as numbness or tingling in the arms or hands.
A car accident may also cause injury to the shoulder, lower back, or other parts of the body. These other injured areas may contribute to whiplash symptoms and delay recovery from whiplash.
It’s important to be seen by a healthcare provider as soon as possible after a motor vehicle accident. Max Physiotherapy is proud to offer Chiropractic and Physiotherapy care to patients who have been involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident.
