Have you suffered from a collision injury on a Calgary road? Even low-speed car accidents can cause significant damage to the soft tissues of your body. Although there may no broken bones, the muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints in your body can be significantly injured. Often people do not realize the extent of their injuries until one to two weeks after the accident. Northgate Physiotherapy, Chiropractic & Massage Therapy Centre is committed to helping you get back to living a pain-free life.
It is important to realize that there are often multiple injury sites. Injury sites include head, neck, back, jaw, arms and legs. Symptoms can include pain, stiffness, restricted range of motion, nausea, dizziness, ringing in the ears, headaches, and loss of sleep.
In Alberta, the driver, passenger or pedestrian of either vehicle is given treatment paid for by the car insurance company. The most common condition diagnosed is the Whiplash Associated Disorder Level Two (WAD-II) which allows you access to 21 treatments in the first ninety days following your accident (protocol period).
You have the right to go to any clinic you choose. Choose a clinic that has experienced practitioners and is focused on the outcome of your treatment.
If you are in a motor vehicle accident, contact us. We will assist you in completing necessary forms for your insurance company. Your health care practitioner will then access you and complete a treatment recommendation (AB-2 form) which you will sign and this will be forwarded to the insurance company.
If you still require treatment after the protocol period, your health care practitioner can apply for additional funding under Section B of the insurance act.
At the Northgate Clinic, we will help you navigate these forms and deal with your insurance company. If you have any questions or want to book an appointment for treatment, please give us a call.
