Whiplash from car accident

Auto Injury & Medical Massage

$30 per unit 

Medical massage is the use of various soft tissue and manual therapy  techniques to help evaluate and treat injuries. This type of bodywork is billed to your insurance and is often (but not always) done under the direction of a physician. Medical massage provides relief from chronic pain, acute injuries, myofascial pain, whiplash, muscle sprains or strains, sciatic pain, headaches, muscle spasms, low back pain and more. The goal is to restore normal function to your muscles and decrease the discomfort associated with injuries.

We are currently accepting new clients and are able to bill private health insurance, auto insurance, and worker's compensation. We make it easy for you by billing your insurance directly. This allows you to focus on returning to health.

Massage Therapy for Car Accidents

Car accidents cause physical trauma, there is no question about that. But many people don't realize the emotional impact of a motor vehicle accident. Massage is extremely beneficial in helping you find relief for your body and your mind. 

It was just a fender bender and there is no damage to my car, do I still need to seek medical attention?

Many people believe that low impact car accidents do not affect your body. A motor vehicle accident doesn't need to be high speed to cause soft tissue damage. Physical symptoms from car accidents can sometimes take days, weeks, and even months to present themselves.  Not seeking medical attention from the beginning may result in lifelong pain. Get treated as soon as possible!

Oregon law requires motor vehicle insurance companies to provide Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage on all policies. This coverage pays for your related treatments for up to one year or until your PIP benefits are exhausted regardless of who was at fault. If you've been in a car accident, here's what to do:

  • Get a prescription for massage from your chiropractor or primary care physician. Make sure it includes the frequency and amount of sessions ordered, an expiration date, the diagnosis codes, and the referring provider's information. 
  • Email us at info@chandarabodyworks.com with  your claim number, claims adjuster's name and contact information, and date of the accident.
  • Schedule an appointment by booking online here.

Massage, acupuncture, and chiropractic work after an accident is ideal for a speedy recovery. Don't delay in getting treatment!
