How Can Massage Help Me After A Car Accident?
Massage therapy can help after a car accident in many ways: Massage therapy can help relieve 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. We also recommend finding 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 (PIP) 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.
We do not bill Third Party insurance (the other driver’s insurance) so you will need to confirm that you have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) on your policy. If you do not have coverage under your own auto insurance, we can sometimes bill your private health insurance. Another option is to pay at the time of service and we will provide you with a superbill to get reimbursed when your claim settles. Some health insurance companies have limitations when it comes to covering treatment for injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents. Please contact your health insurance carrier to determine what services are covered by your plan.
