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. If you need our motor vehicle accident treatment in NE Calgary, speak to us today.
Common Motor Vehicle Injuries
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).
