OUCH!! If you've injured your neck or back in a car accident, whether it's a head-on collision, a rear-end incident, or a side impact (T-bone), you might be dealing with some common symptoms. These could include neck pain, headaches, fatigue, muscle spasms, and even back, shoulder, or leg pain, depending on the specifics of the accident. It can even be painful to hold your head up. This kind of situation could be indicative of what we call Whiplash Associated Disorder (WAD).
WAD encompasses the previously mentioned physical issues as well as potential cognitive problems like nervousness, stress, restlessness, poor sleep, mood swings, reduced energy levels, and difficulties with memory and concentration.
"The Best Treatment for MVA Injuries"
At Advanced Healthcare, Dr. Pisarek and the team have been assisting accident victims in their recovery for more than 47 years. We provide comprehensive rehabilitation treatment programs to help you with most types of injuries sustained in accidents. The best part is, there is NO COST TO YOU for these services because we bill your extended health and automobile insurance directly. You can contact us directly to schedule an appointment, and YOU DON'T NEED A MEDIAL REFERRAL although we do often receive referrals from medical professionals for injured patients, both children and adults..
If you are at fault or not, you are eligible for MVA (Motor Vehicle Accident) rehabilitation services such as: physiotherapy; chiropractic treatment; stretching and strengthening exercises; cervical decompression traction; low-level laser therapy (LLLT); acupuncture; RMT (registered massage therapy); foot orthotics; x-rays; specialist assessments; personal injury compensation and other benefits from your automobile insurance company and extended health care plans.
We also arrange referrals for free professional and legal advice, including our assistance in completing, submitting and managing your accident benefits claim forms. We will gladly accept transfer of your rehabilitation case and treatment program to us if you are not satisfied with the facility that you are presently attending.
Do you know that if your automobile accident occurred outside of Ontario and you require legal representation, in most cases you may have to retain a lawyer in the jurisdiction where the accident occurred. If this is your situation, at Advanced Healthcare Dr. Pisarek can immediately provide the accident benefit rehabilitation services you require to treat and recover from your injuries at our facility. We can also help you find legal representation outside of Ontario to protect your interests through our network of legal advisers.
Our clinic is a modern 'state-of-the-art' fully equipped facility that has been providing successful rehabilitation injury recovery results from our clinically experienced and licenced healthcare professionals with over 50 years of combined practice experience.
Dr. Pisarek is trained in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of WAD as a result of automobile accidents. Treatment follows established evidence based scientific and clinical guidelines and protocols.
According to the Insurance Research Council, nearly 1/3 of all claimants injured in motor vehicle accidents (MVA's) seek treatment from doctors of chiropractic. This is an impressive number given that the National Safety Council (NSC) has determined there to be more than 12 million MVA's annually involving more than 20 million vehicles.
Many studies have also found individuals injured in car accidents prefer chiropractic care for the treatment of their injuries. One such study evaluated 190 whiplash injury victims and found those who received chiropractic care reported treatment satisfaction of 100%.
The reason individuals like yourself choose chiropractic care for treatment of personal injuries sustained in auto accidents is simple - chiropractic care is exceptional in the treatment of soft tissue injuries, especially of the spine. Since the most common injuries associated with MVA's are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments, it's only natural that chiropractic be the treatment of choice.
You may call Advanced Healthcare directly for an appointment - no medical referral is required, yet we often receive medical referrals of injured patients to our facility. Your auto insurance company will provide you with all of the necessary documents. In most cases, if you come in within 30 days of your accident, coverage is automatic according to the "Pre-Approved Framework" or "Minor Injury Guidelines (M.I.G.)" established by the Ontario Insurance Commission.
At Advanced Healthcare, Dr. Pisarek will perform all the Chiropractic and rehabilitation treatments, personally seeing his patients on every visit. Dr. Pisarek does not allow his assistants or non-licensed staff to treat patients. All the staff have extensive experience in treating car accident injuries.
Dr. Pisarek and his administrative staff will also help you with all the paperwork involved when having to be treated for injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident. They will also help you to apply for any benefits you may be entitled to due to your injuries (housekeeping, childcare, income replacement, attendant care, etc.). Dr. Pisarek and his administrative staff know that this paperwork can be hard to understand and overwhelming, especially when one is suffering from injuries.
