If you’ve recently been injured in a car accident, you may consider yourself lucky to have walked away instead of being driven off in an ambulance. However, while the alternative may have been worse, you may not have walked away unscathed. Chances are you are suffering the effects of the crash, whether they are manifesting themselves as whiplash, back and neck pain or another muscle or joint injury. When you are in pain, the last thing you want to deal with is endless stacks of paperwork and approval forms. You want treatment and relief as quickly as possible, which is why it’s important to look for a chiropractor who can help you when you need it, without any additional headache.
In November 2011, the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) put a Minor Injury Guideline into effect for Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA). Basically, the guideline provides an FSCO-approved process for treating uncomplicated musculoskeletal injuries that are a result of a motor vehicle accident. This is beneficial to you because it speeds up the whole treatment process, allowing you to be seen and treated when you need it. Because the process is now pre-approved, if you have minor musculoskeletal injuries, you don’t have to go through lengthy approval requirements before seeing a chiropractor.

If you have been in a motor vehicle accident and need to be seen by a chiropractor, we will not only provide you with the service you deserve, but the process of billing your insurance company will also be a little less stressful.
