Medical Massage Therapy can be covered by Auto Insurance when you have been in an Auto Accident. It can also be covered by a settlement with the other party if you are not at fault.
Even a minor auto accident can have major effects on your health for years to come if you don’t seek out the correct care promptly.
It is not uncommon for even minor auto accidents to cause you muscular pain, headaches, even arthritis that can be very difficult to get rid of for years to come if not treated correctly.
The evaluations done by emergency room doctors are only meant to ensure you don’t suffer from any serious, immediate injuries like broken bones, abrasions, cuts, or concussions. They are not looking for muscle tissue injuries or misaligned bones.
Medical massage is an essential part of the healing process for injuries that result from car accidents.
Soft tissue injuries,invisible on x-rays and often overlooked, can cause severe debilitating pain after a car accident.
Worse yet, if a soft tissue injury is not directly addressed with soft tissue therapy such as medical massage, and left untreated and unresolved, the injured muscles and other soft tissues can end up causing chronic pain for months, years – even decades after the accident.
Unfortunately, the standard healthcare approach to these injuries often amounts to nothing more than suppressing the symptoms with pain-killers and potentially dangerous anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), leaving the injured muscles to hopefully heal on their own.
No two car accidents are the same, and everyone responds differently,so we always adapt treatments to your unique needs. Many factors (the severity of the accident, the extent and nature of your injuries, your daily activities,previous injuries, existing conditions, etc.) affect your recovery, and we account for these factors in your care.
At Body Fix Therapies we have over 17 years experience working with auto injury cases. We work with your claims adjuster or Personal Injury attorney to facilitate payment of your claim. We currently have treatment hours Monday thru Saturday with evening appointments available to allow your therapy program to work around your schedule.
At this time we do accept cases on a contingency basis working with Personal Injury attorneys, so there is little to no out of pocket expense to you.
If you do not have an attorney for your case, or do not understand the benefits of having an attorney working with you, even for a minor accident, we would be happy to refer you to an attorney for a consultation at no charge. Below are some links to attorneys we work with on a regular basis.
In addition, navigating the claim process and determining benefits can be extremely complicated. Our Patient Coordinator offers assistance with this at no charge. Feel free to call us for help!
