I have been providing treatment to clients who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents since 2005. Many of the injuries are complex, and require advanced knowledge and expertise to be treated effectively. The correct treatment approach can have a dramatic influence on pain, healing, and outcomes.

The cost of the physiotherapy treatment is covered by your auto insurance company and any extended health care insurance that you have. In cases where you don't have any extended health care benefits, your treatment is fully covered by your auto insurance company.

I routinely prescribe exercises to address rehabilitation issues (mobility, stability, and motor control limitations), as well as for injury prevention and performance enhancement. Soft tissue treatment techniques are used to improve muscle length by reducing muscle tone/tension, breaking adhesions/scar tissue, and stimulating the healing response.

As a result of some of the limitations of both clinical and diagnostic tests, it is important that clinicians focus more on what we can do to help with the problem, since we can’t always be accurate in identifying the problem. While there are many similarities among the core competencies learned while completing a physical therapy degree, the knowledge pursued by physiotherapists once they graduate is dramatically different.

In addition to helping with risk assessment, I use these tools to provide valuable information that can be used to design appropriate, individualized injury prevention and performance exercise programs. This includes sport specific coaches, fitness professionals, and medical professionals (including physicians, physiotherapists, athletic therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, etc).
