Massage therapy at Reed Chiropractic Clinic goes beyond the relaxation benefits. If you typically only consider a massage when you are experiencing stress, we want to show you the benefits of massage therapy after a car accident. Our massage therapists use manual pressure to stimulate muscle tissue. Some massage techniques include a firm pressure on the belly of the muscles to reduce scar tissue or tension that may occur following a car accident.
For instance, if you are suffering from whiplash, the muscles in your neck and upper back may have tensed up after the impact. Our massage therapists gently ease this muscle tension to reduce your pain and restore your head-moving ability. Other massage techniques apply pressure against the grain of the muscle fibers. This reduces scar tissue from past injuries that may have been aggravated during the car accident.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
Following a car accident, our chiropractors Dr. Reed and Dr. Grant may recommend chiropractic care and massage therapy. The reasons for this include massage therapy's ability to remove muscle tension and improve muscular balance. When you have been injured in a car accident, you may be experiencing neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain or chest pain. Our massage therapists reduce your discomfort through gentle manual pressure that eases muscle tension. While this feels good, massage therapy is also physically beneficial. When you begin massage services soon after an auto accident, you are less likely to suffer from future pain. Instead, massage therapy allows the muscles to heal in a lengthened and natural position to restore your flexibility and strength. Massage therapy also increases blood flow to your injured area. The enhanced circulation eliminates inflammation and removes toxins as your body receives healing nutrients from the cells. Your recovery time is shortened when you receive massage therapy after a car accident. Most of our clients experience an initial reduction in painful symptoms following their first massage. With weekly sessions, your pain disappears completely and your body is able to restore itself quickly.
