Auto Accident Massage

auto_accidentThose aches and pains you are experiencing after your car accident, injury or fall are an indication that the area has suffered damage. The majority of auto accident and injury victims are unaware of hidden injuries because at times medications are masking the pain.  Pain-relief and anti-inflammatory medications provide excellent short-term pain-relief by blocking the production of pain-causing substances (prostaglandins). When an injury occurs, not only is tissue damaged, but also the injured area loses its integration with the rest of the body.

One of our 8 highly trained Medical Massage Practitioners will create a massage treatment plan to help you recover and regain your activities of daily living with decreased pain.
