MVA – Motor Vehicle Accidents

Home / Wellness – SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness / MVA – Motor Vehicle Accidents


Although the injuries received in many motor vehicle accidents (MVA) leave no doubt that you need to see a doctor, it’s important to get a prompt exam even if you feel fine. Marcea Wiggins, ND, and the team at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness have extensive experience as primary care physicians. They also offer unique MVA therapy that promotes faster healing, relieves pain, and improves range of motion. To learn more about MVA therapy, call the office in Portland, Oregon, or book an appointment online.

What injuries commonly occur during a motor vehicle accident?

The symptoms of some injuries, even potentially serious problems like a concussion, may not appear right away, so a prompt exam can target potential problems and start treatment before you develop complications.

Injuries that often occur during a car accident include:

  • Whiplash
  • Concussion
  • Fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries of the spine
  • Crush injuries

For one in five people, widespread body pain that develops shortly after their accident becomes a chronic condition.

How can I obtain MVA therapy?

MVA therapy is intended to be an adjunctive treatment that you receive in addition to primary medical care for your underlying injury. The team at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness gladly accept referrals for MVA therapy from your physician, chiropractor, or physical therapist.

However, they also have a highly experienced team of general practice doctors at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness. Their doctors can evaluate your injury and provide referrals for MVA treatments.

When you’re recovering from a motor vehicle accident, your auto insurance usually covers the cost of MVA therapy, as long as you have a referral.

What MVA therapies might I receive?

MVA patients at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness receive customized care as part of their medical recovery treatment plan. You’ll have access to their hot and cold soaking pools, steam room, and heated UV light room, which effectively prepare your tissues for their primary MVA treatments:

Massage therapy

Massage helps you recover from MVA injuries by decreasing inflammation, reducing pain, improving your range of motion, and relaxing muscles. Massage stimulates healing of MVA injuries such as whiplash, neck and back injuries, headaches, and muscle spasms.

Massage also strengthens your immune system and relieves stress, anxiety, and other emotional symptoms that often arise following an accident.


Although we’ve offered acupuncture in the past, we currently do not have this service available. We hope to offer it again in the future.

MVA -Enhanced Hydrotherapy

Engage in a rejuvenating journey with our hydrotherapy offerings, a scientifically backed method to mitigate discomfort and amplify circulation in affected regions. Experience the benefits of reduced inflammation and alleviated pain in joints and soft tissues through strategic immersion in water at varying temperatures.

As a valued guest at SANTÉ, we invite you to elevate your visit for a nominal fee and indulge in our premier spa amenities, recently acclaimed among the top five in Portland by Axios, Yelp, and USA TODAY.
