21 Mar Can A Massage Therapist Heal Old Car Accident Injuries?
Taking medications and icing your wounds can only do so much after a car accident, especially for older injuries that have been causing you pain for all these years. As much as you might want, injuries don’t just go away overnight. The pain might lessen, but underlying and undiagnosed health concerns remain.
Persistent back, neck, knee, and shoulder pain are common concerns patients often seek remedies for. At Premiere Chiropractic we offer a multi-specialty approach to recovery by combining a number of our chiropractic services.Massage therapy can significantly help your body heal, whether it has been months or years post-accident. It’s clinically proven to work and a widely popular treatment in the LA area!
It’s important to remember that your body goes through a lot after a car accident, regardless of how minor it was. The force of impact is likely to cause fractures, broken bones, bruises, and head injuries to name a few. When muscles and tissues are stretched farther than their normal range, it takes a skilled massage therapist to resolve long-term chronic pain.
Massages are safe, effective, and soothing ways to promote healing. At this point, you may have tried taking medications for temporary relief or exhausted home remedies to keep pain at bay. Unfortunately, that won’t have lasting results. When you entrust a skilled and certified masseuse, you can expect the following from our deep tissue, rehabilitative, and relaxing techniques:
- Reduced inflammation
- Relief from soreness and pain
- Improved range of motion and tight muscles
- Boost of blood flow to the injury or affected areas
- Promote your body’s natural healing process
- Manipulated and repaired older scar tissue
The number of benefits you experience depends on how long you’ve lived with the older car accident injury and its severity. This type of medical massage is more concentrated and focused on the injury itself instead of generally focusing on relaxation. If it has been several months to a year since the crash, it will require more time to heal.
