*If you were involved in an auto accident in the State of Oregon, your medical expenses are covered up to $15,000 and more. It’s called PIP insurance (personal injury protection) and is part of every insurance policy written in the State of Oregon. You are entitled to receive massage treatment, and it’s your legal right to choose the Oregon Licensed Massage Therapist you want to work with. The auto insurance will cover the costs of the massage treatment. It is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after an MVA. Prior to seeking massage, your primary care provider (MD, ND, DC, NP etc) must evaluate the extent of structural, nerve and internal/external injuries. Once you have ascertained you have no injuries that need to be treated by a medical doctor, you can discuss treatment options. Massage can be very beneficial to your injury recovery. Start as soon as possible to minimize the negative effects of your injuries.
