Massage Therapy For Auto Injuries

Chiropractic Plymouth MA Auto Accident

Every time you step inside of a car you put yourself at risk for having an accident, even if you are the most conscientious driver. Even the most minor fender bender could result in an injury. Unfortunately, accidents are a part of life, and we see car accident patients on a daily basis at Koenig Chiropractic. Our chiropractic office in Plymouth offers treatment for car accident injuries through both chiropractic care as well as through therapeutic massage. Today, we would like to discuss the benefits that both treatments offer for car accident victims.

Chiropractic Care

If you've recently been in a car crash, you might have experienced stretches or micro-tears in both your muscles and ligaments, which leads to inflammation. Chiropractic care uses a variety of techniques to reduce inflammation, including spinal adjustments.

Your body also develops scar tissue in order to heal the injuries to your muscles and tendons, which results in a lack of mobility and some discomfort. Chiropractors can help to break up the scar tissue over time.

Not only could you experience inflammation following a car accident. You could also experience reduced mobility in your movement. When your spine suffers from severe inflammation, then it doesn't receive as many nutrients as other areas of the body. Chiropractic adjustments help to work the joints in your spine to increase the blood flow, which will also increase the amount of nutrients sent to this area. Over time, these adjustments help restore movement to the spine.

Massage Therapy

Therapeutic massage can perfectly compliment chiropractic care, which is why we have a massage therapist at our office. Massage helps to relax the muscles and increase the circulation in your body, which aids your body's healing process. In fact, massage therapy sessions are great before spinal adjustments because it releases muscle tension. This allows for chiropractic adjustments to last longer because tight muscles can pull the joints out of alignment. When the joints are correctly aligned, it allows for soft tissue to heal faster.

By increasing the circulation in your body, massage helps to heal the deep tissue in your back and neck. Boosting your circulation also aids your digestive system and your immune system, allowing your body to heal even faster.

Not only do accidents take a toll on the body, but they can take a toll on your mind as well. Massage helps to relieve stress, which is great for your overall health. Stress only aggravates inflammation, and is believed to be a major contributing factor to illness. Through massage, you are able to reduce your level of stress in a positive manner, reaping the health benefits.

Chiropractic care and massage therapy can work together beautifully to heal your body from car accident injuries. However, chiropractic treatment and therapeutic massage are not just limited to accident victims. If you experience chronic pain from past injuries or from your current lifestyle, contact our chiropractic office in Plymouth today to see how we can help. Koenig Chiropractic seeks to help our patients manage pain by using drug-free, noninvasive techniques that are science-based.
