  2. ​File an injury accident report with the police.
  3. ​Complete an AB-1: Notice of Loss and Proof of Claim Form and retain a copy for your records and send the original signed form(s) to the insurance company, as soon as possible.

Am I Entitled To Accident Benefits If The Motor Vehicle Accident Was My Fault?

If you been injured in a motor vehicle accident in Alberta, you are entitled to accident benefits regardless of whether you were at fault for the accident. The benefits you receive depend on the type of injury you sustain. Once your primary health care provider determines your injuries, they will discuss your treatment coverages with you.

Can I Receive Shockwave Therapy While I Am Receiving Treatment Under The Diagnostic And Treatment Protocol Regulations?

Your healthcare provider will assess your injuries and it is up to your healthcare provider to determine if shockwave therapy would be an appropriate modality to use in your care plan.

I Have Completed My Treatments Within The Diagnostic And Treatment Protocol Regulations, But Am Not Back To Pre-Accident Level. What Are My Options?

Once you have exhausted the maximum treatments covered in the Diagnostic and Treatment Protocol Regulations, you are then entitled to Section B benefits up to two years following the accident, up to a maximum of $50 000. Please note that if you have healthcare benefits with your employer, you will have to exhaust those, prior to accessing Section B benefits. If you do not have additional healthcare coverage with your employer, you can generally immediately access Section B benefits, within your insurance company’s provisions.

I Have Multiple Injuries As A Result Of My Car Accident. Do I Get A Certain Number Of Treatments Per Body Part Under The Diagnostic And Treatment Protocol Regulations?

At Unpain Clinic, we recognize that providing care for multiple injuries during one session respects your time and individual needs and avoids inconveniencing you by requiring you to make multiple trips to the clinic. It will be up to you and your healthcare provider to determine what is in the best interests of your care plan with respects to multiple injuries. However, it should be noted that if you receive treatment on multiple body sites (for example neck and ankle) on the same day, your healthcare provider will bill your insurance company for TWO treatments. Therefore, you may ultimately attend the practice setting less than the number of treatments allocated in the Diagnostic and Treatment Protocol Regulations, due to the use of multiple treatment visits during a single attendance.

How Many Sessions Will I Have With Each Type Of Therapist - Chiropractor, Physiotherapist, And Massage Therapist - In My Care Plan?

When recovering from a motor vehicle accident, it’s essential to get the right treatment quickly. In cases of non-life-threatening injuries like sprains, strains, or whiplash, you can directly seek an initial assessment from a physiotherapist or chiropractor, who then becomes your primary care provider. This provider will collaborate with you to craft a tailored care plan, which might include treatments from multiple healthcare professionals.

Under the Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols Regulations, you’re entitled to a specific number of treatments, typically up to 21, within the first 90 days after your accident. The exact distribution of these sessions among physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy will be determined based on your individual needs.

At our clinic, we offer the convenience of having physiotherapists, chiropractors, and massage therapists under one roof. This not only simplifies appointment tracking and ensures cohesive care but also streamlines the billing process with your insurance company, making your recovery journey smoother and more coordinated.

Kat Halushka

Lacina Barsalou is the best chiropractor on earth! She is officially my go to and I drive from Spruce Grove just to see her. Lacina is not your typical chiro and goes so much deeper into what is the actual cause of the pain. After just one session, I experienced pain relief, understood exactly where it was coming from, AND had a full plan on what I can do on my own to decrease pain and discomfort in the future. Back pain...feet pain...just pain - don't wait, book in a session with Lacina! It's a no-brainer

Ev Waldie

Dr. Lacina Barsalou is friendly, kind, attentive and caring. She is very approachable and listened to my concerns. She was knowledgeable and thorough in her explanation of her diagnosis and tailored treatment recommendations for my shoulder and neck issues. Her chiropractic skills along with her ability to offer a variety of modalities and treatment methods aided in successfully alleviating both my neck and shoulder pain and helped me regain my range of motion. She is straight forward and sincerely cares about the well being of her patients

Jay H

The Unpain Clinic is great! My wife has had problems with a stiff and sore neck and back for over 15 years and nothing really seemed to help. After seeing Uran at the Unpain Clinic six times, she no longer has the pain or stiffness. It has been over a year since she saw him last and she is still good. Uran is incredibly knowledgeable and fascinating to listen to, not to mention he is literally one of the nicest guys I have ever met. I would also like to add that the women at the front are very friendly and personable


Our chiropractor and claims manager will guide you through the post-accident process, explain what to expect, how to maximize your benefits, and outline our treatment approach to restore your pre-accident health.
