What Are The Components Of A Rehabilitation Program?

The injuries that result from an Ontario car accident include fractures, sprains, chest or knee contusions caused by impacts with steering wheels, dashboard, or airbags as well as a wide variety of soft-tissue injuries.

The treatment prescribed by a physiatrist or other specialist  could include following,  in addition to more traditional rehab measures such as physiotherapy and pain prescriptions:

•Progressive exercises
•Education
•Massage therapy
•Joint mobilization
•Acupuncture
•Acupressure
•Postural alignment training.
There are 159 physiatrists in Ontario, with many of the top practitioners in the Ottawa-area. Ask for a referral from your family doctor if you think this might assist in your rehabilitation. Physiatry services are generally covered by OHIP.
