Massage Therapy can help you to heal from soft-tissue injuries directly resulting from a car accident. At The Massage Approach, we accept No-Fault insurance. If you experience any pain due to an automobile accident, you should seek immediate medical care. You do not need to go to the emergency room to receive treatment. Automobile accidents, regardless of speed, can significantly impact your body, including your muscles and connective tissue. Therapeutic Massage, can be especially beneficial in healing these injuries, reducing inflammation and alleviating pain. In the state of New York State, if you are involved in an automobile accident, regardless of who is at fault, you are entitled to receive medical care for your injuries.
