Defining Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is a series of methods and modalities used by practitioners to manually manipulate soft body tissues like tendons, ligaments, muscles, and connective tissues. Though there are several types of massage therapy, the two most commonly used during chiropractic treatments are sports massage and rehabilitative massage. Rehabilitative massage is also known as therapeutic, clinical, and deep tissue massage and it is also used in clinics, physician offices and hospitals.
The Effectiveness of Massage Therapy
The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health has conducted a series of studies on the effectiveness of massage therapy. They have even looked at its effectiveness towards the treatment of cancer-related fatigue and generalized anxiety disorder. It can be concluded through research and studies that massage therapy has few risks when it is performed by a practitioner that is trained in its modalities. Massage therapy has been proven to be an effective treatment for chronic lumbar back pain. It has also been found to be effective in the treatment of chronic cervical neck pain. Massage therapy has been used to effectively treat osteoarthritis of the knee and it has been used to provide comfort for laboring women. Other conditions massage therapy has been used to effectively treat include Cancer, fibromyalgia, headaches and children with autism spectrum disorders and autism.
Massage Therapy Benefits After a Car Accident Injury
If you have suffered a car accident injury, a deep tissue massage could be of great benefit to you. Deep tissue massages use slow, forceful strokes which target deep layers of connective tissue and muscle to help heal the damage caused to your muscles from your injury. People who have sustained injuries from automobile accidents also benefit greatly from trigger point massage. This type of massage concentrates on areas of tightened muscle fibers after an injury or overuse. Other benefits of massage following a car accident injury includes reducing muscle tension, reducing stress, aiding with digestive disorders, helping with insomnia, and helping relieve symptoms associated with myofascial pain syndrome.
