Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries

Motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) often result in significant soft tissue, bone, joint and neurological injuries. At Motion Plus Physiotherapy, we can assist you during your recovery. Our individualized approach that focuses on education, restoration of function and movement, promoting tissue healing and decreasing/controlling pain will help optimize your physical recovery.

If you require physiotherapy after a MVA, your auto insurance company will fund a portion of the costs provided the treatment is reasonable and necessary. Most soft tissue injuries fall within the Minor Injury Guideline (MIG), a 12 week pre-approved program that can be initiated by a number of regulated health professionals, including Physiotherapists. Up to $3500 is available for treatment of these injuries within the MIG. Additional funds are also available to clients with more severe injuries (e.g. fractures). Ontario law requires that all costs for treatments such as physiotherapy or massage be first submitted to your extended health benefits (EHB) carrier for reimbursement. Your auto insurance company will then fund the remainder, providing your request for treatment has been approved.

Please Note: Navigating the auto insurance system can be stressful! Our capable and knowledgeable staff is here to guide and assist you as needed.

The Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) is the regulatory agency of the Ministry of Finance that regulates the insurance industry. To learn more about Auto Insurance in Ontario go to
