Motor Vehicle Injuries

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, we can help you. We regularly treat people with symptoms of whiplash, pain, soreness and injuries sustained in their accident. We can work with the Insurance Commission of WA, your GP and other health professionals to manage your injury and allow you to focus on getting better.

Referral Required

If you do need Physio treatment, then you will need to visit your general practitioner for a referral letter. The Insurance Commission of WA will only pay invoices for people if they have been referred to have Physio by a GP. We can still treat you without the referral letter and you can receive services as a private patient, then when you have your paperwork sorted out you can be reimbursed for any private treatments you have paid for.

Tailored Treatment Plans

Sometimes recovering from a motor vehicle injury can be a long process. We are able to help you at any stage, typically in the early stage after your accident we help with relieving your pain by gentle movement, massage and stretching. As soon as you are able we will help you move onto more active treatments designed to maximize your return to your pre-injury health.

We do this by designing a treatment plan for you and liaise with other members of your health care team and the insurance company on your behalf where appropriate. Treatment includes hands-on therapy and exercises designed to keep you moving and flexible. For any exercise components we will set up a program just for you and you have the choice of using our on-site gym or we can meet you at your gym. We also use Hydrotherapy, pool based exercises, for treatment and pain relief.

See your doctor for a referral and then call us at Kelmscott Physio on (08) 9390 5566 or Find A Time to come see us for an assessment and a treatment plan.
