What is Medical Massage?
Medical massage is clinical massage based on a
physician's prescription, and performed with a specific
goal for functional outcome. It is generally prescribed as
a series of visits over a specified period of time - such as
twice a week for six weeks, with work only to the
diagnosed area. It is sometimes paid for by a third party,
such as an insurance company.
A good medical massage therapist is a good clinical
massage therapist who also knows how to speak the
languages of insurance companies, physicians, state and
federal law, attorneys, etc. If you have been injured in an
auto accident, this can be a HUGE benefit to you, letting
you concentrate on getting better instead of having to
deal with all of the billing issues that come with your
prescribed course of treatment.
