Massage Therapy after Accident

Personal injury as the result of an accident can have serious and unexpected consequences. Not only does the injured person suffer pain and potential permanent harm, injuries often mean a reduction in mobility, potentially disrupting personal life and forcing an absence from employment. Accidents can cause a severe burden which underscores the importance of a return to functional health and a normal lifestyle.

In order to achieve the safest, quickest and most effective treatment results, a comprehensive approach should be taken when considering post accident care. In recent years Massage Therapy has become a viable, safe, and effective method for treating injuries. As the benefits of Massage Therapy have become apparent, so have the number of people seeking it as a treatment option. A 2007 National Health Interview Survey reported that more than 18 million adult Americans had seen a Massage Therapist the previous year. In 2010 there were more than 150,000 Massage Therapists working in the United States.

While Massage Therapy is sometimes considered an alternative medicine, the National Institutes of Health advises that studies have shown Massage Therapy to be effective treatment for neck and back pain and suggests that it is commonly used to complement a comprehensive injury care plan. Additionally, Massage Therapy is appreciated as a safe treatment option when performed by a trained and certified Massage Therapist. Employer sponsored or private health care insurance often covers massage Therapy.

With an abundance of Massage Therapists to choose from when considering accident rehabilitation, it can become tricky to navigate the maze of massage styles and certifications.
