Car Accident Massage Therapy Benefits, and Getting Insurance to Pay
Did you know if you are involved in an auto accident, and have PIP coverage through your auto insurance provider, you may very well be entitled to Massage Therapy, covered through your insurance provider? We can help at LaVida Massage of Federal Way, contact us to learn more about the process of Massage Therapy to treat auto accident injuries, and how to make your insurance pay for it. Here are some of the major benefits of massage therapy for auto injuries.
You are likely in pain, and are experiencing inflammation. Be it through impact, whiplash or aches and pains from the jarring motion of the accident, virtually no collision is free of physical discomfort. Massage Therapy, especially with the aid of CBD balms, can greatly reduce that pain in an accelerated time frame, and reduce inflammation from within.
Swelling is the result of an increased movement of fluid and white blood cells into an area of trauma. Massage will help move that excess fluid out for processing and promote continued blood flow to vital areas and improve the recovery process. Icing, CBD treatments and regulat massage therapy can all aid in speeding up the reduction of swelling.
If you suffered from whiplash or a similar condition during your car accident, a massage can help. Whiplash can result in pain, stiffness and decreased range-of-motion, which can lead to a number of physical and emotional symptoms. Massage therapy, however, can reduce these symptoms and alleviate things like depression and insomnia.
Increased Range of Motion
One of the biggest benefits we see massage offer our patients is relaxation. While this is critical for mental recovery, it can also go a long way toward relaxing tense areas in the body and neck and increasing a patient’s range of motion. By relieving tightness and inflammation, a good massage helps your body to start working the way it’s meant to once more and allows your body to begin the path to healing.
