If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) massage can help you find relief with greater ease and speed.  In Oregon you are covered by PIP(personal injury protection) for up to one year post accident.
Car accidents can be frightening experiences.  We can lock up physically and hold onto this impact for many years after our accident. We can develop chronic pain, decreased range of motion in joints, and pinched nerves leading to tingling, numbness and weakness particularly in limbs from such impacts.  Not to mention the toll this experience can take on our nervous system.  Many experience increase stress and anxiety after an accident.
The sooner you receive bodywork the sooner you can relax, heal, and return muscles to their correct lengths. The longer you wait to get care, the stiffer things can become, and the less time you have to use your PIP to cover therapeutic services.  Even if you are not feeling extreme pain it is prudent to seek care for preventative dysfunction that may not present until several months after your initial accident.  Be proactive. Get the care you deserve!  
How to get massage covered following a motor vehicle accident:
1) Open a claim.
2) Try to see a doctor within 24 hours of your accident to get a diagnosis and prescription for massage.
3) Contact a massage therapist to set up an appointment.
4)  Provide your Massage Therapist with your insurance information, claim information, and doctors prescription.  Make sure your prescription states how many massages you may receive per week and for how many weeks you should be treated.  Bring this to your first appointment. You cannot be treated without it. 

We look forward to being a part of your healing team!
