Motor Vehicle Accident Rehabilitation 

Our health professionals have in-depth training in treating injuries associated with motor vehicle accidents. We feel that it is of the utmost importance that an early return to usual activities takes place after a car accident and that prescribed rest should always be limited to a short duration. Most importantly, the patient with whiplash needs to be informed that usual activities may be temporarily painful but are not harmful.

Although whiplash is the most common injury seen after a motor vehicle accident, we also treat a variety of other injuries resulting from an accident, including fractures, sprains and strains of other body parts, and chest or knee contusions which result from impact with the steering wheel, dashboard or airbag.

Components of the Rehabilitation Program - The program is very individual depending on the condition and injuries being treated. The sessions may include the following:

  • A detailed initial assessment addressing the history of the accident, reported symptoms and complaints, observation by therapist of injured areas of client, palpation, tests of range of motion, muscle strength and ligament stability, completion of outcome measure tests, sensation testing and any other test required for each individual case.
  • A detailed initial report (for your insurance company and physician)
  • Completion of a treatment plan (for your insurance company)
  • A combination of the following treatments:
    • Education
    • Progressive Exercises (including stretches, strengthening and conditioning)
    • Postural Alignment Training
    • Ultrasound
    • Heat/Ice
    • Massage Therapy
    • Joint Mobilization (hands-on treatment)
    • Manual & Mechanical Traction
    • Acupuncture
    • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
    • Home-Based Exercise Program
    • Taping

Effective Treatment Combinations for Whiplash

At Queen West Physiotherapy & Acupuncture, we have found over many years, that a combination of the following treatment modalities is very effective at helping the client return to their pre-accident function:

  • Passive joint mobilization. A therapist gently and repetitively moves the joints in the neck region to reduce pain and restore normal movement in the neck. This can be used if it reduces your symptoms.
  • Active Stretching, Strengthening and Conditioning Program. After an accident, people often are scared to move too much in case they hurt themselves further. This fear often can lead to greater harm if they do not move enough and end up getting very stiff. It is important to begin gentle active movements asap after an accident within pain tolerance. This should always be initiated the proper way with supervision of a physiotherapist. Strengthening and Conditioning then follow as they are two other components that help the injured client get back to their usual activities with less pain and increased energy.
  • Acupuncture. Fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body. Acupuncture can significantly reduce your symptoms.
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), Heat, Ice, Massage, Ultrasound, and Laser. These passive treatments/electrotherapies, if administered by trained professionals, are additional treatment options during specific time periods of the entire therapeutic program. They are used with manual therapy and exercise to help you return as soon as possible to your usual activity.
  • Education. It is very important to teach the client the many strategies available to ensure that the person can return to their previous level of activity as soon as possible. Issues addressed include: correct posture, lifting techniques, pacing, home and work place modifications, and usage of aids in helping every day function.
  • Anti-inflammatory medication. For more severe cases, anti-inflammatories can be prescribed by your doctor in the short term to reduce pain and swelling. Use of this form of medication should be limited as it may have side effects such as stomach pain and nausea.
