Motor Vehicle Accident Massage

Why get care?

Getting massage after a car accident can help prevent small injuries and pain from turning chronic. When healing from larger injuries due to a motor vehicle accident, massage can be a great tool in helping bring down inflammation, healing whiplash, support rehabilitation and easing pain. I love helping Portland recover. 

If you were in a car accident (or bike hit by a car) in the state of Oregon you can see a massage therapist with no out of pocket costs! Even if the accident was your fault! Under Personal Injury Protection, or PIP, you are entitled to up to 15,000$ worth of healthcare for up to two years after the crash for your injuries. 

Why choose me?

Experience has taught me that working with someone from acute pain to full recovery is a rewarding process. After a motor vehicle accident, you not only want pain relief, but will be holding the trauma of the accident. The techniques I specialize in can get deep to help your muscles and bring a lighter touch to help regulate your nervous system. Craniosacral, cupping, manual lymphatic drainage and deep tissue are some of the modalities I practice. 

I also work out of a queer and fat affirming health clinic. Feeling othered by a provider when you are dealing with the aftermath of an accident can be the difference between getting care and long term chronic pain because care was avoided. I strive to create a space where folks feel seen, understood and don't have to explain their bodies outside of where the pain is. 

What do to next?

1. You will need a prescription for massage. If you do not have one, contact your primary care doctor or chiropractor for a prescription for massage. I recommend asking for 12 one hour sessions and scheduling 1-2 a week. 

  • If you do not have a doctor or chiropractor, I recommend calling Asha Wellness at 503-719-5000 for an appointment with a Chiropractor. 

2. You will need:

  • The name of the auto insurance you are billing to

  • The incident claim number

  • The adjusters name and their phone number for me to bill.

  • You can get all of this when you call your insurance to report the accident.
