In which treatments can massage therapy play a role?
In many situations, the proper application of massage to an injury can increase the speed of patient recovery. For accident victims, this can include:
Benefits of massage therapy:
Although massage therapy may not be a treatment you’ve considered for your auto accident injuries, it has many benefits including:
Relaxing your muscles to increase range of motion
Improving your blood circulation
Increased endorphin levels, which can reduce pain
Reduces cramping and muscle spasms
May reduce injury recovery time
Massage therapy for back pain:
Studies have indicated that massage therapy is a promising treatment method for those suffering from lower back pain. Massage therapy can improve body function and reduce pain more rapidly than clinical methods. Typically, best results are obtained when a patient receives an hour of massage once a week for ten weeks.
Massage therapy for shoulder pain:
Massage can improve the pain and stiffness you may experience in one or both shoulders following an auto accident. Massage techniques affect the soft tissue of the trapezius muscle, which runs from the base of the neck to the arms.
Massage therapy for neck pain:
Neck pain, especially whiplash, is one common side effect of a car crash. Massage therapy can help relieve some of the effects of your injuries, and can prove especially helpful to those suffering from chronic whiplash.
