motor vehicle accident recovery through acupuncture and massage

Motor vehicle accidents (MVA) are often quite traumatizing and painful. At Middleway, we help many people recover from the physical and emotional results of an accident and are well equipped to guide you through your insurance claims. In Oregon, all medical bills resulting from a MVA are paid by personal injury protection insurance(PIP). This insurance covers the services of acupuncture and massage 100%. By law, you and all passengers in your car have up to $15,000 each to cover any medical bills resulting from an accident. You are completely free to choose what type of care you wish to receive and who you receive it from. Our office is well trained and happy to help you with your insurance claim. No doctor referral is necessary, all we need is your claim # and adjuster’s name. After a automobile accident, the most common injury is whiplash (though back ache, general muscle pain, and stress/anxiety are commonly reported as well.) Symptoms of whiplash include:
  • Neck and Shoulder pain or stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Sleeplessness
  • Irritability
We have found that combining both acupuncture and massage offer the most effective healing results for a MVA. The acupuncture allows you to relax while your body releases pain blocking endorphins. The release of these endorphins helps to turn off the cascading inflammation response that results after trauma. Thus, the body starts to “let go” of tight muscles and the memory of the accident. We then follow the acupuncture treatment with massage. The massage further helps the body to relax, and also breaks up scar tissue and adhesions. This allows for the muscles to lengthen and stretch, gradually restoring the range of motion to the joints and decreasing pain.
