When a person is involved in a motor vehicle accident it is always best to get examined by a physiotherapist as soon as possible. ICBC Accident Benefits help BC residents access the support they need, regardless of who is at fault for the accident.
There are a lot of steps to recovery, but consulting with a physiotherapist is a good start. Others such as RMTs and kinesiologists may also be part of a personal health care team.
Diagnose Your Injuries
Physiotherapists are trained primary care health care professionals who are skilled at diagnosing these types of injuries. After arriving at a diagnosis, they will create a recovery plan that may involve hands on manual treatment, exercise, education, and other modalities necessary to get back to pre-injury status.
Aquarius Physiotherapy’s Experience with ICBC
Aquarius Physiotherapy in Yaletown, Vancouver understands dealing with ICBC can be a frustrating and often overwhelming process. From their front desk staff to their therapists, they are experts at working with ICBC and can assist in getting the help that is needed. They will handle the complexities of an ICBC coverage claim while you can simply focus on your health and recovery.
Under ICBC’s new Enhanced Care Model, patients can access treatment within the first 12 weeks following the date of accident. It is recommended to consult a physiotherapist in Vancouver as soon as you can after an accident, since an early diagnosis and prompt treatment is the best way to avoid unnecessary physical aggravation. If the date of accident was more than 12 weeks ago, a person can still access ICBC treatment with a doctor’s note.
Aquarius Physiotherapy will work with you to choose a treatment plan, and their team will be in contact with an ICBC claims adjuster to make sure that a person can continue to receive covered treatment. After the initial 12 weeks, further treatment can be obtained from ICBC on a case-by-case basis, though most patients are able to obtain extended treatment. Aquarius Physiotherapy will consult with all patients and submit a treatment plan submission to ICBC on a client’s behalf, outlining the condition and the rehabilitation plan, and requesting more treatments as needed.
Aquarius Physiotherapy’s sessions are conducted on a one-on-one basis by a physiotherapist who is experienced with ICBC patients. Many of their ICBC patients also benefit from a session with a kinesiologist, which is also covered in the ICBC treatment plan. Depending on the patient’s condition, the physiotherapy session could include a following kinesiology session. Their team will work with all patients to help the body to gain strength, improve mobility, relieve discomfort and tension, increase knowledge of your injuries, and much more.
