If you were injured in a car accident, your auto insurance will pay for your massage therapy treatments. All auto insurance policies in the State of Oregon include Personal Injury Protection (PIP); this extension of your insurance will pay for complimentary alternative health care regardless of who was determined to be “at fault.” This coverage allows you to be treated for your auto accident related injuries with a simple referral from your chiropractor, naturopath, osteopath or medical doctor.
Our clinic has thousands of hours of experience providing medical massage therapy for auto accident injuries. It is often the body’s soft tissues (muscles, tendons and other connective tissues) that are injured in auto accidents. The therapists at Siskiyou Massage are highly skilled in treating auto accident injuries including whiplash, neck and back injuries, tendon damage, muscle spasms, myofascial pain, headaches, migraines, and insomnia.
Medical massage is a term that refers to special techniques used when massage is part of the overall treatment of medical problems stemming from trauma to the body. This form of massage is often, but not always, done under the instruction of a physician in the case of work-related injuries or auto injuries and focuses on addressing the affected area(s). Your therapist will conduct a thorough health intake during each massage session and develop a treatment plan to provide you with the most appropriate treatment for your injury. Therapists will document progress and work closely with other health care providers to provide you with the best care. At regular intervals, your therapist will send progress reports to your referring health care provider to keep them up to date with the treatments. Your massage may include advanced myofascial techniques, craniosacral therapy, deep tissue techniques, relax and contract techniques and post-isometric relaxation techniques on the affected muscles and joints.
