Therapeutic Massage for Auto Accident Recovery
Our qualified massage therapists are familiar with the types of massage that can best help alleviate muscle pain you may be experiencing after your accident. Below you will find some of the most popular massage services we offer to our clients recovering from vehicle accidents:
Myofascial Release Therapy:
This type of therapy focuses on muscle pain relief by targeting the membranes that wrap around and support your muscles. During this type of therapy, various trigger points are targeted throughout the body. Then, manual pressure is applied to the trigger points to release muscle tension and tightness. The same trigger point may be targeted several times until the pressure is released and notable muscle relaxation has been achieved.
Static Compression Massage:
Static compression massage is also referred to as ischemic compression. This massage technique is used to increase the flow of oxygen to compressed or damaged muscles. Generally, this type of therapy is used to treat larger muscle groups. During this type of massage, a therapist will press and release different muscles to promote relaxation. This technique helps trigger the parasympathetic nervous system, ultimately leading to an increase in relaxation and one’s overall mood.
Deep Tissue Massage:
Deep tissue massages are designed to help realign the muscles and restore nerve function. For this type of massage, a therapist will apply deep strokes using sustained pressure to reduce muscle pain and tension. With a deep tissue massage, you can improve your range of motion, reduce spasms, and increase blood circulation. This type of massage is also great for stress-relief and setting your mind at ease post-accident.
Due to the speed at which they often occur, auto accidents “freeze” one’s nerves in a defensive state. Even the best-case scenarios can take weeks to recover from. It takes time for the muscles, spine, and nerves, to relax into their proper positions after an accident. With assistance from our auto accident chiropractors, you can speed up this process of recovery. Most sessions are conducted over the course of an hour, and repairing the damaged muscles and realigning the nerves can take multiple sessions. The combination of several different massage therapies helps optimize the body’s total recovery speed.
