Auto Accidents Can Throw Off Everything In Our Lives

All of a sudden we have phone calls, appointments, insurance headaches, and, of course, the pain that comes from being in an accident.

As Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows continue to grow, traffic becomes more congested as more cars are on the road. We can expect, accidents to become more common because of this.

Injuries from auto accidents are common and we want to make sure that people get the care they need.

A chiropractor can be one of the best guides to leading you back to health and stability. If you've been injured in an accident, please come in for a visit and we will get you on the path to recovery right away.

Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents

We work with a lot of auto accident victims in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. We'd like to help.

I was in a bad car accident and am now “feeling it” what should I do?

In terms of your health care Chiropractors are well trained to diagnose, treat and or refer you in this situation.  At our office we may take an on site digital Xray to assist us in properly making a diagnosis and deciding on course of action.  

I was in a minor fender bender and I seem to be in pain. Should I still come in?

Often what seem like minor car accidents with minimal damage can create some stress on the body that can cause pain. We see this often and are well equipped to help.

Why am I so sore?

Sometimes many regions are effected during an accident that can result in muscle strain, ligamentous strain and loss of optimal joint motion.  This damage can result in whiplash (neck problems) and also sciatica symptoms (lower back problems).  Our first goal is to calm this pain down and slowly restore motion and function.  

When will I start to feel better?

Eventually you will be able to do exercises and stretches with less pain as you recover.  If at any time during your care the chiropractor finds a problem that requires the assistance of your doctor you will be advised and referred immediately.  It is also common for chiropractors, physiotherapists and massage therapists to work together on patients injured in a car accident.

What about seeing my medical doctor?

In many cases we encourage our patients to also update their medical doctor about injuries resulting from a car accident.  

Do you help with insurance?

Also did you know our office accepts the ICBC flat fee program for chiropractic care.  Our office can forward your injury report to your ICBC claims adjustor for approval.  In most cases care is then accepted and paid for directly to the chiropractor by ICBC allowing you quick access to care with no financial barrier.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Jason Bucknell for quite some time.  I see him at least once a week and I can say without a doubt, that he sincerely cares for the well being of his patients. Jason is helping me maintain a healthy, mobile lifestyle.  I would highly recommend Jason to anyone wanting to experience chiropractic treatment.


The staff is always friendly and make me feel comfortable and at ease.  I am a person of many questions and Dr. Jason Bucknell always answers my questions very clearly.  He identified root cause issues others practitioners could not, and his professional progressive approach to long term health and well being is affordable and effective.  Jason has made a huge difference the quality of my families life.


Ever since I started going for regular chiropractic adjustments 2 years ago, I have felt nothing but improvements. My neck had been a source of discomfort for years. They took X-rays of my neck and spine, and were able to find and explain the reason for my discomfort. Now my neck pain is virtually gone. Dr. Jason Bucknell also noticed other small issues I never knew I had.
Now I feel great.


When I first went to the office it was for my lower back pain, which was quickly resolved in less than 2 months. Now I routinely go for my overall health. I have no need to see any other kind of doctor, they can answer all my questions! The staff are very nice and the office is clean and tidy.
