Massage Therapy For Auto Accident Injuries

Generation Chiropractic Offers Massage Therapy for patients involved in car accidents

Massage as a healing tool has been around for thousands of years in many cultures. Touching is a natural human reaction to pain and stress, and for conveying compassion and support. We now have scientific proof of the benefits of massage - benefits ranging from treating chronic diseases and injuries, to alleviating the growing tensions of our modern lifestyles. Having a massage in our office does more than just relax your body and mind - there are specific physiological and psychological changes which occur, even more so when massage is utilized as a preventative, frequent therapy and not simply mere luxury.

Here are some health benefits to Massage Therapy

  • Reduces inflammation and pain immediately after a car accident.

  • Increases circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs.

  • Stimulates the flow of lymph, the body's natural defense system, against toxic invaders. For example, in breast cancer patients, massage has been shown to increase the cells that fight cancer.

  • Relaxes and softens injured and overused muscles

  • Reduces recovery time, helps prepare for strenuous workouts and eliminates subsequent pains of the athlete at any level.

  • Improves range-of-motion and decreases discomfort for patients with low back pain.

  • Relieves pain for migraine sufferers and decreases the need for medication.

  • Assists with shorter labor for expectant mothers, as well as less need for medication, less depression and anxiety, and shorter hospital stays.
