Insurance

Auto Insurance

We can work with you and your claims adjuster to provide CranioSacral Therapy payable from the following types of policies:

  • Auto Insurance - Bodily Injury (At Fault Party)
  • Auto Insurance - Medical Payments Coverage
  • Auto Insurance - Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Coverage
  • Auto Insurance - Uninsured Driver Coverage
How It Works

In certain circumstances, we can bill your carrier directly if you need bodywork as a result of an automobile accident. PIP is an extension of car insurance available in some U.S. states including California that covers medical expenses and, in some cases, lost wages and other damages, no matter who is determined to be at fault. 

Even if you don't carry PIP, if the other party is found to be at fault for bodily injury, expenses can likely be paid by their insurer. 

Why Bodywork Is Essential After An Auto Accident

Auto accidents can cause these conditions among others:

  • WHIPLASH
  • NECK AND BACK INJURIES
  • TENDON DAMAGE
  • MUSCLE SPASMS
  • MYOFASCIAL PAIN
  • HEADACHES
  • MIGRAINES
  • SECONDARY MUSCLE GROUP PAIN ("GUARDING")
  • INSOMNIA (PAIN CAN INTERRUPT SLEEP)  
CranioSacral Therapy CAN ALLEVIATE AND EVEN HELP PREVENT THESE AND OTHER ACCIDENT-RELATED INJURIES.

If you have been involved in a motor-vehicle accident, the emergency room evaluations done immediately following it are only meant to ensure you don't have injuries such as concussion, broken bone or abrasion. They may not examine you for soft-tissue injury.

It is common to not notice any soft-tissue injury immediately following a vehicle accident, then wake up a week, two weeks or sometimes even months later, with severe neck pain, back spasm or headache. In fact, the symptoms of the soft-tissue injuries you may have sustained might not arise for up to six months after the initial collision.

Soft tissues include the muscles, tendons and ligaments in your body. Soft-tissue injuries cannot be detected on x-rays and are often overlooked, yet they can cause severe, debilitating pain.

Sprains and strains are referred to as soft-tissue injuries. For example, a whiplash injury to the neck, also known as cervical sprain/strain, is one of the most common injuries that result from an auto accident. This injury occurs when the head is abruptly jerked back and forth, as is often the case in an auto accident, and the muscles and ligaments are injured.

CranioSacral Therapy can be effective in treating soft-tissue injuries. It is important to begin bodywork treatment as soon as possible to begin the recovery process. Injuries left untreated can sometimes persist for months or even years.

Massage therapy can also aid recovery by restoring balance to your autonomic nervous system. Relaxation techniques can help alleviate the shock and trauma on your nervous system caused by an accident.

Bodywork promotes circulation of blood and lymph, which can reduce swelling as well as assist in flushing the injured area with fresh blood rich in nutrients that aid in faster tissue recovery.

What We Need From You To Proceed

Please gather the following before you contact us, and ask your claims adjuster whether massage therapy will be covered in your case. If the answer is yes, we will contact your claims representative to confirm. We will need:
  • a prescription from a physician or chiropractor
  • a claim number from your auto-insurance company
  • the name, telephone number and e-mail address of the claims representative from your auto-insurance company who is handling your claim.
Please provide this to us prior to scheduling an appointment, by calling us at 415-454-3400 or e-mailing relief@BreatheEasyBodywork.com
