Registered Massage Therapy

Who are they? RMT’s provide evidence-informed, natural, non-invasive intervention for pain and dysfunction in the body’s soft tissue. Massage therapy adds the perfect amount of therapeutic release to compliment and provide a greater opportunity to stretching and strengthening of muscles.

How can it help? After a motor vehicle accident it is beneficial to book in with your RMT as soon as possible. During this acute phase the intent is to help calm your muscles and prevent them from tightening up into a protective position.

How do I get started? Once you obtain a referral from your doctor we can submit it to ICBC and request RMT sessions for you. After your assessment your RMT will be able to better advise you on the frequency and duration to treatments recommended. Typically shorter durations but more frequently is recommended. As your pain decreases and function improves our goal is to decrease the frequency of passive treatments and increase the frequency of a more active approach.

Did you know? It is common, and at times preffered, to attend a combination of services for example, RMT and physiotherapy or RMT and active rehabilitation. This enables each practitioner to spend the treatment time most effectively and using each other’s strengths to support your recovery.

How can it help? With respect to motor vehicle accidents, physiotherapist help relieving pain by returning muscles to their optimal resting length. They help train your body to re-engaging muscles that have been disinhibited post injury and retrain muscle coordination and balance that may be impaired.

How do I get started? If physiotherapy is a service that may benefit you, you will need to talk to your doctor and obtain a referral for physiotherapy sessions. We can submit that referral to ICBC requesting physiotherapy sessions. ICBC typically approves 20 sessions of physiotherapy and if more sessions are required another referral from your doctor is typically requested.

Who are they? Chiropractors are musculoskeletal experts who adopt evidence informed treatments to help resolve and prevent biomechanical problems caused by muscular, skeletal, and nervous system dysfunction.

How can it help? The forces involved in a motor vehicle accident are often larger than what the body is capable of dealing with. As a result, accident sufferers go into 'survival mode'; tightening muscles, restricting joints, and limiting range of motion. Chiropractors help restore the body's movement through soft tissue therapy, and targeted adjustments of the joints.

How do I get started? ICBC provides all motor vehicle accident victims with Chiropractic services within the first 8 weeks of your injury. This does not mean that after the first 8 weeks you cannot receive chiropractic services, but rather pre approval will be needed prior to seeing a chiropractor and 100% of your treatment session may not be covered.

Did you know? Chiropractic services are often coupled with RMT, physiotherapy or active rehabilitation. Each service will support your recovery from a slightly different perspective. As your symptoms improve and you require less of a hands on approach it is common to transition into a active rehabilitation program while still receiving chiropractic services.
