Massage helps relieve pain and discomfort from car accidents!
Most of us have been rear-ended at some point in our lives and many go on to experience pain and discomfort as a result of the accident. Strains, sprains and whiplash (a type of neck sprain/strain) are all common injuries from car accidents and are often treated with massage. In fact, it's a fantastic way to tackle so many of the issues you may be experiencing after a car accident.
- Ease pain and inflammation
- Reduce stiffness
- Improve sleep quality
- Decrease headaches
- Help reduce stress
Symptoms of an injury can appear within hours or weeks of an accident. Often, pain and discomfort won't be noticed for a couple of days. However long it takes for symptoms to appear, anyone experiencing pain, discomfort, or any other issues after a car accident should seek prompt medical attention.
During your visit with your doctor (or urgent care, chiropractor, etc.) you may be prescribed massage as treatment for your injuries. If you have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) as part as your auto insurance policy, prescribed massage is covered by your auto insurance. What's that mean to you? It means you don't have to pay anything or deal with bills. We'll work with your auto insurance provider directly so that you can focus on getting back into tip-top shape!
