MVA – Motor Vehicle Accident

Impacts during auto accidents can cause soft tissue injuries that can be slow to heal and misalignment of the spinal vertebrae that can cause ongoing discomfort.

Chiropractic Care can provide a variety of treatments for injuries to the muscles, ligaments, and tendons of the body, such as therapeutic exercise, massage therapy and lifestyle advice to prevent further injury as you complete the healing process.

Our team of chiropractors, physiotherapists, injury rehab specialists, massage therapists, and nutritionists provides a comprehensive care plan that is designed for your specific needs.
