M.V.A. Care


What do I do after a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA)?

If you have recently been injured in a car accident, it is important to make an appointment for an assessment at Revive Health Centres.  We will assist you in contacting your auto insurance provider to file the report and get the claim started. 

What will happen on your first visit?

On your first visit, we will evaluate your function, pain, severity of injury, and prescribe the appropriate treatment program. We can help with all aspects of treatment, including filling out paper work, claim submission, imaging, and medical services as required.

What are the most common injuries in a Motor Vehicle Accident?

The majority of injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident include whiplash, and other muscular strains and/or ligament sprains involving regions such as the shoulder, lower back, mid back, elbow, hip and knee.  The full range of MVA injuries treated at Revive Health Centres include soft tissue, minor injury, fractures and catastrophic injuries.

How can these injuries be effectively and quickly treated?

Often patients who sustain multiple injuries in car accidents will not experience the full extent of their injuries until several days or even weeks following the accident.  At Revive Health Centres, we take a multi-disciplinary approach using physiotherapy, chiropractic, soft tissue therapy, acupuncture, electro-modalities, occupational and massage therapy, to  effectively address these multiple injuries.  Each patient receives an individualized assessment and treatment plan aimed at optimal recovery.

How do I pay for my treatments?

According to the Insurance laws that govern Ontario, the MVA patient must first use any Extended Health Benefits offered through their employer, school or self-directed plan to pay for treatment.  Once this coverage is exhausted, the auto insurer will then fully cover treatment for a minimum of 12 weeks.  Our staff will help assist you with the completion of all the necessary forms required to coordinate payments from your insurance providers.

What are the benefits of treatment at Revive Health Centres?

All patients who have been injured in an MVA are entitled to at least 12 weeks of rehabilitation as well as many other medical goods and services.  Our trained clinic staff will help restore you to your pre-accident state by coordinating a personalized multi-disciplinary treatment plan which may include:  

 

  • Chiropractic                 
  • Physiotherapy
  • Rehabilitation Gym Program
  • Spinal Decompression
  • Cold Laser Therapy
  • Registered Massage Therapy
  • Work Hardening/Strengthening Program
  • Chronic Pain Management
  • Chiropody/Podiatry and Orthotics

 

Revive Health Centres can also help you obtain the following additional services (if eligible):

 

  • Income replacement
  • Care giving assistance
  • Attendant care assistance
  • Housekeeping expenses
  • Assistive devices (lumbar support, orthopedic supplies)
  • Transportation costs associated with therapy

 

While many insurance benefits are subject to maximums, you may be eligible to receive these services as long as these expenses are deemed to be medically necessary and their costs are reasonable.
