How Can Massage Help After a Car Accident?

Massage therapy can help after a car accident in many ways:  Massage therapy can help alleviate pain and other symptoms associated with a concussion, whiplash or spinal cord injuries. Massage can help with neck pain and knee injuries. It can also help relieve stress, anxiety, emotional trauma or PTSD associated with the accident.

After being in a car accident, it can feel overwhelming trying to figure out the best thing to do. From dealing with insurance companies, police reports and the sudden pain and confusion after the accident, it is important to find help from an expert who can advocate for you. Ascension Wellness highly recommends finding medical professionals who have experience working with motor vehicle accident patients as well as an attorney who can help you navigate the legal issues related to a car accident.

When you file your insurance claim, find out if you have personal injury coverage under your plan. If you do, personal injury protection will cover the cost of massage therapy treatment as long as you can prove medical necessity. This can be documented with a prescription from your medical doctor or chiropractor.
