If you are in a motor vehicle accident (MVA), your doctor may prescribe massage as a part of your treatment plan. Massage can address the stress that goes with a traumatic event like a car accident. It can also help to speed up the recovery process of injuries common in a MVA.
After a motor vehicle accident, you may be covered for 10 or
21 pre-authorized treatments with permitted practitioners, depending on the
injuries. Massage therapy must be directed by your primary health care
practitioner, documented on the Treatment Plan Form (AB-2) and approved by your
insurance company. Your massage therapist will need a copy of the AB-2.
Prior to your first treatment your massage therapist will do a full assessment and will need detailed information of the accident and your injuries. Other information we will require prior to your first treatment:
- Name of insurance company
- Claim Number
- Date of injury
- Adjuster's name and contact information
The Benefits of Massage Therapy for MVA Injuries:

- Headache and migraine
- Neck pain

- Joint pain
