ICBC Physiotherapy in Victoria
The unfortunate event of a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) is a common reason to initiate treatment in Victoria at Shelbourne Physiotherapy. Our Physiotherapists have a great deal of experience treating common MVA related injuries as a result of whiplash, including neck, back and shoulder injuries. Physical Therapy, often in combination with Registered Massage Therapy and Kinesiology is an important part of your recovery after a motor vehicle accident. Our Victoria Physiotherapists also play a very active role in rehabilitation after traumatic MVA related issues that have required hospitalization and/or surgery.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident involving a vehicle registered and insured in BC you will have coverage for Physiotherapy treatment through ICBC. Your accident benefits cover everyone injured in a crash who are riding in the vehicle as well as any cyclist or pedestrian hit and injured.
Physiotherapy is considered a mandatory benefit that ICBC must pay if you are insured and the treatment is medically necessary. If you are a BC resident and your vehicle is registered in BC then you should be covered by these injury benefits after you have been injured in a car accident. The best way to ensure ICBC will pay for your physiotherapy is to get your doctor to confirm in writing the need for physiotherapy or massage treatment and the fact the need arises from your car accident injuries.
ICBC has an obligation to pay for your medical expenses, rehabilitation cost, and wage loss if you are injured in a car accident. Your accident benefits with ICBC include up to $150,000 for expenses related to medical and rehabilitation services which include Physiotherapy.
