How Massage Therapy Can Help After Your Car Accident
A car accident can have devastating effects on your life, and the after affects are not just financially devastating. Physically, you will be an absolute mess if you don't get the proper care. This is why, after an accident, it is necessary to consult a Licensed Massage Therapist. The longer you delay treatment, the harder it is to get back to normal.
We work closely with Medical Doctors, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, etc. and can speak their language. And if you haven't found your medical provider yet, we know this arena well and would be glad to point you in the right direction. We believe that your health care should come from a team of qualified professionals. We would love to be a part of your team, too.
There are many types of injuries that can occur as the result of an accident and the type of treatment you receive can depend on the severity of the injuries and/or where that injury is located. We work with all types of injuries, including but not limited to whip lash, muscle sprain/strain, spasms, headaches, nerve compression, numbness, lower back subluxations, vertigo, and much more.
Massage therapy is not a mere relaxation tool. It can, in fact, help to restore the loss of function that you may be experiencing. Deep Tissue massage helps to lengthen the muscles that are in spasm due to the injury. It also helps to minimize or even reverse the effects of scar tissue. Massage also cleans up the lymphatic system to get rid of toxins that are stored in the body after a trauma. These stored toxins can wreak havoc, decreasing the ability to heal. Adept massage therapy opens up the blood circulation and allows the lymphatic system to release a clear fluid that cleans out the tissues of the body. All of these factors help relieve stress, alleviate pain, increase blood circulation and keep muscles functioning properly.
A car accident can leave you feeling as if you are lost in limbo. No matter what your personal injury is, a Massage Therapist can help you regain some semblance of the life you once lived. We take care of all your billing and handle the claim for you so you can focus your efforts on healing -- not trying to maneuver through the claim process. At Body Tech Massage & Alternative Therapy we take your healing seriously!
