Auto Accident Massage Therapy: Part of Our Comprehensive Treatment
After a car crash, it’s imperative to seek treatment as soon as possible. Many times low-impact injuries can be conservatively treated by means of massage and chiropractic care. Specifically, auto accident massage therapy can help ease muscle tension and spasms caused by an auto collision injury.
Auto accident massage therapy treats common conditions related to car crashes like:
- Strains and sprains
- Back pain
How is auto accident massage different than a regular massage?
Although auto accident massage incorporates many of the same modalities as a regular massage, the difference between an auto accident massage and a regular massage is that our therapists work side-by-side with our doctors as part of comprehensive approach to injury treatment. Our doctors provide a thorough diagnosis with x-rays and exams to ensure our therapists incorporate the correct massage techniques to fit the specific injury. Ordinary massage clinics don’t have doctors on staff providing insight for the therapists to ensure the proper techniques are used to provide the best possible treatment for pain relief.
In addition, our physicians have been specifically trained and certified in auto accident injury treatment by the Spine Research Institute of San Diego’s ‘Whiplash and Brain Injury Traumatology’ program. This additional training sets us apart from most other clinics when it comes to successfully treating and managing pain induced from an auto injury.
Our goal is to ensure all of our patients we help get the best possible treatment with lasting results.
What to expect when you see us for auto accident massage therapy
When you come to see us after an auto accident, we’ll want to first meet with you and more than likely, perform an exam and x-ray to get an idea of the seriousness of your injury. In some cases we may need to require you get a CT scan or MRI for proper diagnosis. If you need assistance with this, we work with a network of doctors that that provide these services to help you so you don’t have to find one on your own.
We’re serious about providing our patients the the best possible treatment to their auto injuries and a complete thorough diagnosis is part of the process. We find that this approach provides our patients the best long-lasting results in pain relief and allows our doctors to understand what type of treatment plan is needed.
