Chiropractic Treatment and ICBC
Motor vehicle accidents (MVA) can cause significant physical injuries, some of which do not appear until several days after your accident. Luckily, If you have automobile insurance in BC, you are entitled to accident benefits coverage regardless of whether you were at fault. As an approved ICBC Clinic, Dr. Taylor can provide a variety of treatments for people injured in a car accident, including joint mobilization or manipulation, soft tissue therapies, rehabilitation exercise and IFC. There is no out of pocket expense, as all costs are covered through ICBC.
It is important to seek treatment immediately following a car accident, as even minor injuries can cause significant long term problems if not dealt with quickly and properly. Provided your car accident is reported, you are covered for an initial assessment and treatment, and are most likely covered for the duration of your treatment program. Assessments can be performed by our chiropractors or physiotherapist, or by your medical doctor if your injuries are more internal in nature. Soft tissue injuries, however, are best assessed by a chiropractor or physiotherapist. To ensure patients receive the best and most appropriate care following their car accident, Dr. Taylor can communicate with your claims team directly to update them on your progress and our treatment recommendations.
The most common injury encountered following car accidents is whiplash, but many other sprains and strains can also occur. Symptoms to look out for with whiplash include stiffness, aches, headaches, difficulty turning your neck, or pain that travels into the arms. If you are having any of these symptoms, or want to get assessed before the symptoms begin, please call the clinic at 250-314-500 to book an appointment with Dr. Taylor.
