Auto & Bike Accident Treatment
At Portland Healing Space, our clinicians are experts at treating motor vehicle accident (MVA) injuries and our administrative staff are experts at filing the insurance paperwork. Let us lighten your load as you navigate the path to recovery.
If you have been in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) in Oregon either as a pedestrian, driver, passenger or bicyclist, you are legally entitled to receive medical care. In the state of Oregon, Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance pays medical bills resulting from an MVA. State law mandates at least $15,000 in PIP coverage for you and each of your vehicle passengers for a period of one year after a collision - no matter who was at fault. The law also allows you to seek care from the licensed health care practitioners of your choice.
How do I know whether I need help?
Toughing it out only leads to a lifetime of pain, limited range of motion or other issues that affect your quality of life. Learn to identify the common symptoms after an auto or bicycle accident and be sure to get help:
- Neck or shoulder pain and stiffness
- Low back pain
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Ringing in the ears or ear pain
- Blurred vision
- Poor sleep
- Difficulty with concentration or memory
- Pain or numbness in the arm and/or hand
- Sensations such as burning or pins and needles
- Pain or numbness in the arms or legs
Auto and bike accidents often have an emotional impact along with the physical injury. Integrated holistic medicine can support the nervous system as well as the physical body, allowing for healing of both physical and emotional stress from the accident.
After an accident, it's important to seek clinical attention as soon as possible. Injuries often worsen over time. In fact injuries can take days, weeks or months to fully manifest. Even seemingly minor accidents may cause damage to the body, damage that can result in lifelong difficulties if not corrected.
Let our skilled and compassionate practitioners at Portland Healing Space guide you through your process to full recovery. Personal Injury Protection insurance covers treatment by licensed acupuncturists, chiropractors, naturopaths and massage therapists.
