Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor Vehicle Accidents

The aftermath of most motor vehicle accidents is often characterized by physical and psychological distress. If you find yourself in such unfortunate circumstances, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to navigate the healing journey by yourself. At Ottawa Health: Performance and Rehabilitation, we’re well-versed and experienced in providing personalized care and support for individuals who have undergone motor vehicle accidents.

According to Ontario’s Minor Injury Guideline, you may be entitled to special funding through your insurance company to access treatment and rehabilitation after a motor vehicle accident. 

Dr. Carlan Stants is our Director of Assessments and has extensive expertise across various specialties of care. He’s among the few chiropractic specialists in Ontario that provide detailed assessments for complex cases and litigation. Dr. Stants works together with other specialists including our chiropractors at Ottawa Health to help you acquire the funding you need to receive the care you deserve.

Whether minor or severe, motor vehicle accidents in Ottawa, ON, can leave quite an unfortunate mark. Some common injuries that result from motor vehicle accidents include concussions, whiplash, nerve damage, muscular and tendon tears, fractures and even disability.

Soon after a motor vehicle accident, it is recommended that you get assessed by a healthcare professional.
