Motor Vehicle accidents are common. Unfortunately so are injuries from them, ranging from headaches, whiplash and tightness to more life threatening injuries. We get on top of your pain before it turns into something worse. Our highly skilled therapists can work, not only with injuries such as whiplash, but can also help rehabilitate you back into your normal life. With our private treatment rooms in Parramatta, we are equipped to take you from pain, to performing at your best again.
Common motor vehicle injuries:
Post surgery (Fractures)
What do I do when I have a motor vehicle injury?
It is always important to see your medical practitioner as soon as possible after an accident. Even if you do not feel sore, stiff or injured. It is common for pain and other symptoms to start after 24-48 hours of an accident. Don’t be surprised if your symptoms worsen within the first week. It’s how the body deals with sudden trauma to the body. Your doctor may also ask you to get scans done to rule out any serious injury.
Step 1: Exchange details with the driver of the other car
Step 2: Get home safely or get to a hospital if your injuries were more severe
Step 3: Call the Police help line and ask for an event number
Step 4: Go see your GP
Step 5: Get in touch with your CTP insurer and lodge a claim
Step 6: Make a booking with us!
If any of the above needs clarification, feel free to give us a call at any time and we will guide you through the process.
