Not only is a motor vehicle accident stressful and frightening, but it’s also a traumatizing experience that can lead to disabilities. Traffic collisions lead to whiplash, which can also lead to disabilities and in the worst cases, it can lead to death.
By the end of 2016, there were more than 7.2 million registered passenger vehicles in Canada.

What You Should Do After an Accident
The first thing you need to do after getting involved in a motor vehicle accident is to contact your health insurance company immediately. It doesn’t matter whether the accident is your fault or not. If you are injured, you need to seek medical help immediately so you can return to your normal routine and activities.
When you come to our clinic, you will need to fill a few forms regarding your healthcare insurance. This will help us make on-the-spot decisions and provide you with the best and most effective treatments.
You will need to undergo an assessment (AB-2 Assessment) in order for us to make a diagnosis. If the injuries are severe, you will need to enrol at a rehabilitation center.
Afterwards, you will be examined by our team who can help you with your spinal injuries and whiplash.
What You Should Expect from Us
First things first, we will need to conduct an x-ray to determine whether there are any problems or not. You will need to undergo a few examinations as well.
If you have whiplash, there’s a high chance that you’ll develop a Whiplash Associated Disorder (WAD). Common symptoms of whiplash include:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Lower back pain
- Muscle strain
- Inability to move
- Memory problems
Make sure to look out for all of these symptoms. Cooperating and being open about your injury with your chiropractor can help you get the best treatment. Getting early treatment can help reduce the risks of chronic pain and other problems.
Our treatments include exercises, massage, concussion management, braces, etc.
If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident contact us immediately so we can get the process started ASAP to avoid any delays in the treatment.
MAKING AN APPOINTMENT
Lower back pain was something that I never had to deal with. That’s until I started my new job, which required me to stay at my work station for a large part of the day. The constant pain made even daily tasks exhausting and started affecting my quality of life. I searched the internet for treatment options, and that’s when I came across shockwave therapy. I scheduled an appointment at Divergent Health, and their experts assured me that the procedure was completely safe. It’s now been two months since the treatment and I couldn’t happier with the results!
