Motor Vehicle Accident

Motor vehicle accidents are an unfortunate part of life. Beyond the physical damage to your vehicle, one of the scariest parts of an accident is dealing with an injury.  Motor vehicle injuries are often ‘soft-tissue’ injuries, which cannot be seen on an x-ray or MRI. If a soft-tissue injury goes untreated, a patient risks long-term chronic pain which can last a number of years.

Fortunately, Summit offers physiotherapy for those who have been in a motor vehicle accident, to help you overcome your pain and get back to a normal life. Our trained and experienced physiotherapists will assess the severity of an MVA injury, and recommend a course of treatment that is best for you.

Did you know that even a low-speed car accident can cause severe whiplash? Whiplash is the most common injury from a car accident and results in neck pain and headaches. At Summit physiotherapy we have a great deal of experience and success treating clients with whiplash injuries.

Many other injuries can result from car accidents as well. These can include low, mid and upper back pain, shoulder pain, TMJ disorders, vertigo and dizziness.
