About Motor Vehicle Accidents
Did you know that motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) are frequently experienced traumatic events for both men and women? This is an event where a motor vehicle (such as a car or bike) has collided with another vehicle, stationary object, animal, or pedestrian. Depending upon the severity of the impact, the vehicle and driver may both come across physical damage. In Canada, the total number of motor vehicle fatalities was reported to be 1,762 in 2019; however, the same year, the number of serious injuries summed up to 8,917. Some common injuries suffered by motor vehicle accident survivors include:
- Spinal cord injuries, which may later translate into paralysis
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Burns, bruises, and laceration
- Amputation and limb loss
- Disfigurement from facial injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Fractures and crush injuries
- Whiplash (straining of soft tissues in the neck that causes pain)
- Shoulder injuries
- Soft tissue and other internal injuries

Benefit from Specialized Physiotherapy Services in Edmonton
- Faster Recovery
A motor vehicle accident can restrict a patient’s ability to return to their normal routine. Patients are often seen complaining regarding pain, stiffness, headaches, and an impaired range of movement years after their accident. Physiotherapy can help speed up the patient’s recovery by enhancing their flexibility and strength.
- Prevention of Long Term Damage
Opting for physiotherapy during the early phases of the accident can help patients avoid any further complications that may otherwise cause lingering damage.
- Pain Alleviation
Physiotherapy encourages physical activities as more oxygen-rich blood gets pumped to the injured area while conducting an exercise. This, in turn, lowers pain significantly.
