Beneath the Surface: The Benefits of Deep Therapeutic Massage

Muscle tightness and pain often accompany various conditions, such as those resulting from auto accidents. Our skilled massage therapists are experienced in the deep therapeutic massage that is of great benefit to those suffering from tightness and pain whether from an auto accident, work injury, or daily activities.
Our deep therapeutic massage offers a multitude of benefits that extend beyond mere relaxation. This specialized form of massage therapy involves using strong pressure and gentle, slow movements to target the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues.

Muscles and Joints: A Complex Interplay After Injury

After an injury involving the joints, such as those sustained during an auto accident or a joint sprain, the muscles will tighten to stabilize the joints and reduce force on the injured rope-like ligaments. This is in addition to the direct injury sustained by the muscles themselves. The muscles are not able to handle the sustained exertion required to stabilize a joint over the time it takes the ligaments to heal, causing tightness, achiness, soreness, and even pain. Held in a tight, contracted state for an extended period of time, the muscles and surrounding tissues can develop connective tissue adhesions or muscle knots that may be both painful and limit the ability of your muscles to relax and move into their fully lengthened state. This reduction in the function of your muscles effectively reduces the range of motion of your joints.

Whiplash Unveiled: Neck and Back Challenges After an Auto Accident

Joint injuries and resulting muscular pain and tightness are a particular problem in the case of whiplash from an auto accident, where joint injuries are widespread throughout the neck and back. Whiplash is a distinct neck and upper back injury commonly associated with auto accident. It occurs due to the abrupt acceleration-deceleration forces experienced during an auto accident. This injury is characterized by the rapid forward and backward motion of the head, leading to strain and damage to the neck's soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, and tendons.

Massage Therapy: Guiding Recovery and Beyond

Incorporating regular massage therapy as part of your treatment plan will help ensure good function and a better recovery. Massage therapy not only reduces the pain and fatigue of muscles tensing up, but helps retain muscular function by guiding the muscles through their normal range of motion and preventing the formation and build up of connective tissue adhesions.
Massage therapy has many other benefits to aid you on your journey towards recovery including improved circulation, stress reduction, postural improvement, acute & chronic pain management, toxin elimination, better sleep, headache reduction.
