Physiotherapy can help you get better faster
At Guelph's West Side Physiotherapy, our therapists and support staff are dedicated to providing expert care. If you have been involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) and require treatment for your injuries, you will need to contact your Auto Insurer. Your Physiotherapist can assess and provide treatment for your injuries. A Doctor’s referral is not required and treatment may begin immediately.
As of September 1, 2010 a new treatment program called the Minor Injury Guideline (MIG) has taken effect influencing the treatment of the majority of individuals injured in an MVA. It is a pre-approved program meaning that if your injuries are such that you qualify for treatment within the program you are automatically covered by your auto insurance.
Your treatment will be covered for up to 12 weeks following your first visit. You will decide, with your Physiotherapist, how often to attend appointments and what treatment strategies are most appropriate for you. Whiplash (neck pain) is very common following motor vehicle accidents. Our Physiotherapists have extensive knowledge and skills in treating Whiplash and other MVA related injuries. We understand that being involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident can be a very traumatic and overwhelming event. Our therapy staff is compassionate and highly trained to assist you with your recovery. Our office staff can also help you with any questions you may have regarding making a claim and submitting information to your Auto Insurance.
