Our specialized approach to treating car accident patients has proven to help heal many of those injured in Ottawa. Our carefully crafted treatment plan includes dealing with your acute pain through chiropractic treatments first, then graduating to physiotherapy sessions for ongoing pain management.

Common injuries associated with car accidents:
Back pain, whiplash, sprains and strains, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, TMJ dysfunction, rotator cuff injuries, dizziness and headaches, jaw pain, and neck pain.

Our systematic approach then suggests receiving multiple physiotherapy treatments after your acute pain has been cared for using chiropractic sessions.
