Massage After Auto Accident

Vehicle injuries result in more pain than typically realized, even in a low impact accident. Stress hormones act as a pain management mechanism. The hormones provide temporary relief to an affected area.  It can often to a full day or three to feel the impact that the stress has had on the body.  This is why it is so imperative that you see your chiropractor to check your overall condition prior to moving forward with the assumption that “it’s not that bad”.

Whiplash symptoms often worsen after 24 to 48 hours. At times the symptoms can increase over a 3 week period, making you think it really isn’t as serious as it is. Urgent assessment is necessary to provide you with proper at home management, in office care and possibly prevent a seemingly minor injury from becoming a chronic condition.  Massage therapy is a common, non-invasive treatment for an auto accident.

Clinic Closure Notice

In order to protect our patients, staff, and the general public, Elevation Chiropractic and Rehabilitation will be closed for several weeks.  Amid the Coronavirus pandemic this is the best way we can help “flatten the curve.”

At this point we cannot give a specific date on when we will re-open.  We are hoping for a mid-April re-opening date, but this will depend on multiple factors.

When we re-open we will do our best to let everyone know by posting to our website as well as other platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and our Google Business Profile.  Additionally we will reach out directly to those patients whose visits were cancelled when we are open again.

We will be not be checking voicemails during our closure, but we will intermittently be checking our other forms of communication, so we ask that you remain patient with us in regards to our response time.

Please stay safe and take care of yourself and those around you.  Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
