Auto Accident Massage

What is Auto Accident Massage?

Injuries sustained from car accidents are very common.  In many cases, these injuries surface slowly and very subtly, however, no matter the seriousness of the accident, it is important that you seek a medical evaluation from your physician or chiropractor as soon as possible. Doing so will get you started on a treatment plan necessary to put you back on track.  If injuries are not treated immediately, they can have long lasting and, very often, debilitating effects. These injuries can result in an inability to perform daily activities and cause a drop in productivity levels or missed days at work.

If you have been in a car accident, your primary care physician or chiropractor may prescribe massage therapy as part of your recovery plan. Massage can often address many of the soft tissue injuries, which are commonly associated with motor vehicle accidents such as whiplash, headaches, back pain, and overall general achiness. Additionally, massage is highly beneficial in reducing the stress and anxiety experienced after such traumatic events.
