What to Expect With MVA Physiotherapy
Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Physiotherapy all starts by contacting your insurance so you can receive a claim number and start treatment. The Westwood Physiotherapy team will then submit the appropriate paperwork to ensure you receive the proper coverage when booking an MVA physiotherapy appointment. Please make sure to let us know your claim number when scheduling your session.
At your initial visit, we encourage you to arrive 10-15 minutes early to complete the appropriate paperwork. At the time of your appointment, your physiotherapist begins your initial assessment, inquiring about your symptoms, injuries, accident, and medical history.
After this initial discussion, your physiotherapist performs a physical assessment, testing for weaknesses, pain, and other symptoms. This gives us a starting point and helps us create a custom treatment plan for your specific situation.
Your treatment plan may, then, include manual therapy, strengthening exercises, stretching exercises, hot and cold therapy, and more. Your exact treatment plan depends on your specific symptoms, pain, and injuries.
