In this blog post, I will talk about how the poor weather in Kelowna increases the risk of car accidents and what you can do if you are injured. 

I will also explain how no-fault insurance works in BC and how chiropractic care can help you recover from whiplash and other injuries. 

Finally, I will tell you how to book an appointment with us at Tutt Street Family Chiropractic, where we offer shockwave and laser therapy, direct billing to ICBC, and no doctor referral needed.


How Chiropractic Care Can Help You After a Car Accident in Kelowna

Car accidents are traumatic events that can cause severe injuries and pain. If you are involved in a car accident, you may suffer from whiplash, a neck injury caused by a sudden back-and-forth movement of the head. 

Whiplash can cause symptoms such as neck pain and stiffness, headaches, shoulder and back pain, numbness and tingling in the arms and hands, and difficulty sleeping and concentrating.

Whiplash can also lead to chronic problems and complications, such as reduced mobility, degenerative disc disease, and depression. Therefore, seeking treatment as soon as possible after the accident is important.

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to treat whiplash and other injuries from car accidents. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems using manual techniques such as spinal manipulation, mobilization, and soft tissue therapy.

Chiropractic care can help you with whiplash and other injuries by:

  • Reducing pain and inflammation
  • Restoring normal range of motion and alignment
  • Improving blood circulation and nerve function
  • Enhancing healing and recovery
  • Preventing chronic problems and complications

At Tutt Street Family Chiropractic, we offer a variety of chiropractic services to help you with your injuries, including:

  • Shockwave therapy uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate tissue repair and regeneration, breaking down scar tissue and calcifications.
  • Laser therapy uses low-level light to reduce pain and inflammation and accelerate healing and cell growth.
  • Custom orthotics are shoe inserts that correct your foot posture and alignment and improve your balance and stability.

If you are injured in a car accident, you don’t have to worry about the cost or the hassle of getting chiropractic care. We offer:

  • Direct billing to ICBC, so you don’t have to pay upfront or submit receipts. ICBC covers most of the cost of your chiropractic care, up to 25 visits within 12 weeks of the accident, or more if approved by your adjuster.
  • No doctor referral is needed, so you can start your treatment immediately without waiting for a referral from your family doctor or a walk-in clinic.
  • Same or next-day appointments are available at our clinic, so you can get the care you need as soon as possible without wasting time or risking further injury.
