Whiplash Injury Car Accident (ICBC)

Whiplash Injury Treatment in Abbotsford | Prestige Physiotherapy


Don’t let whiplash pain after a car accident take over your life – we’re here to help you get back on the road to recovery.

Suffering from whiplash can be incredibly debilitating, and often occurs after a car accident.

You may be experiencing a range of symptoms, from neck and shoulder pain to headaches and reduced range of motion.

These symptoms can prevent you from carrying out your day-to-day activities and negatively impact your quality of life.

At Prestige Physiotherapy, we understand how difficult it can be to deal with the aftermath of a car accident, and we’re here to provide effective, evidence-based treatment to help you recover.



Car accidents can be incredibly traumatic experiences, and the aftermath can be just as difficult to deal with.

One of the most common injuries sustained in car accidents is whiplash, which occurs when the head is suddenly jolted forward and then back, causing the neck to be forcefully whipped back and forth.

Whiplash can cause a range of symptoms, from neck pain and stiffness to headaches and dizziness, and can make it difficult to perform your usual daily activities.

At Prestige Physiotherapy, we understand the challenges of dealing with a whiplash injury.

Our team of experienced physiotherapists will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan to help you recover from your injury.

We use evidence-based treatment approaches, including manual therapy, exercise therapy, and education to help you achieve your goals and get back to your normal life.

Symptoms of Whiplash

Symptoms of whiplash may not present themselves immediately after the accident, and can take a few hours or days to appear. Some of the most common symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Headaches, especially at the base of the skull
  • Shoulder pain and stiffness
  • Reduced range of motion in the neck
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Fatigue
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms
  • If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms after a car accident, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible.

Treatment We Provide

At Prestige Physiotherapy, we offer a range of evidence-based treatments to help you recover from your whiplash injury. Our services include:

  • Manual therapy: Our physiotherapists use a range of techniques, including mobilization and manipulation, to help improve the mobility of the affected joints and tissues.
  • Exercise therapy: We’ll work with you to create a personalized exercise plan to help improve your range of motion, reduce pain, and improve your overall function.
  • Education: We’ll provide you with information and advice to help you better understand your injury, and teach you how to avoid aggravating your symptoms.

Don’t let whiplash pain after a car accident take over your life.
