Massage Therapy After a Car Accident Can Help Return Your Health
During your visit to Valerie's Gig Harbor Massage Group, one of our massage therapy experts will go over all your whiplash symptoms and your treatment options with you. This way, you can feel confident in your treatment, as well as have all your questions answered. Here are a few of the ways that massage therapy can treat the symptoms associated with a car accident:
Improved range of motion – often after a car accident, patients exhibit a decrease in their range of motion. This symptom can manifest itself as difficulty fully turning to one side or being unable to look over your shoulder or low-back stiffness. Through massage therapy, your flexibility and movement are rebuilt.
Reduction of spasms due to injury – along with the other symptoms we’ve mentioned, you may also experience muscle spasms after a car accident. Partly due to the tearing of muscle fibers, this symptom can be painful and even chronic if left untreated. However, Deep Tissue Massage Therapy can be an effective way to break the cycle and mitigate symptoms.
Promotion of blood circulation to vital areas – another big benefit when getting massage therapy after a car accident is how your blood circulation is improved. Because injured areas need proper blood flow to aid in the recovery process, massage therapy provides a vital benefit toward healing.
Relaxation that prompts psychological healing – as mentioned above, massage therapy is outstanding for providing psychological benefits after a car accident. This is because, along with an alleviation of tightness or inflammation, you’re also being given a chance to de-stress and calm your mind at the same time. Since car accidents are typically traumatic events, massage therapy can play a huge role in setting your mind at ease after the event.
Restoring your health after a car accident is essential no matter how big or small the Accident is.
