At TMC we provide treatment and rehabilitation services to people who have suffered injuries in motor vehicle accidents. Our skilled health professionals have in-depth training in treating injuries associated with motor vehicle accidents. We feel that it is of the utmost importance that an early return to usual activities takes place after a car accident and that prescribed rest should always be limited to a short duration. Most importantly, we tell our patienst with whiplash injury that usual activities may be temporarily painful but are not harmful.
Although whiplash is the most common injury seen after a motor vehicle accident, we also treat a variety of other injuries resulting from an accident, including fractures, sprains and strains of other body parts, and chest or knee contusions which result from impact with the steering wheel, dashboard or airbag.
TMC Rehabilitation Program - The initial program is usually twelve weeks in length and includes the following: A detailed initial assessment addressing the history of the accident, reported symptoms and complaints, observation by therapist of injured areas of client, palpation, tests of range of motion, muscle strength and ligament stability, completion of outcome measure tests, sensation testing and any other test required for each individual case.
