Physiotherapy After a Car Accident / CTP Claims
Car accidents can happen any time and can cause a lot of headache and grief due to a whiplash injury. Physiotherapy treatment after your car accident may be covered under CTP insurance (compulsory third party insurance). Physiotherapy after having a car accident is crucial and can prevent long term pain and other complications.
Please note, prior approval from your insurance company is required. You will also need to visit a GP after your accident who will assess you and make recommendations.
Not all symptoms will appear immediately after the accident, some symptoms and pains can develop a few days after the accident has taken place. The body often goes into “protection mode” for safety to prevent further damage after an accident. Once the body starts to relax, the pain will will become more apparent.
