• Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA)

Acupuncture for Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA) – ICBC Port Coquitlam | Maple Ridge | Pitt Meadows | Port Moody| Coquitlam | East Vancouver

Whiplash is a very common injury. It occurs frequently in motor vehicle accidents (MVA) when people are not prepared for sudden trauma.

With valid ICBC claims, ICBC covers the acupuncture treatment for up to 12 visits in the first 12 weeks of the date of injury. However, there are some car injuries where the symptoms may not appear for several hours or days after the accident. Whether you are suffering from soft tissue injuries or anxiety after a car accident, try acupuncture treatment in any one of our 5 locations, Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam or East Vancouver for your rapid recovery. The only way to know for sure is to visit the acupuncturist for your ICBC injury  as soon as possible after your accident.
