What is Local Registered Massage Therapist

A local massage therapist is a health professional who is trained in treating soft tissues, which include the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue. By using a variety of techniques, a local massage therapist can help patients with a variety of conditions, including diabetes. Patients with diabetes may experience symptoms and conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, erectile dysfunction and hypothyroidism. If you’re a patient with type 1 (insulin-dependent) or type 2 diabetes, your local massage therapist may work with your local endocrinologist and local family physician to create the best health and wellness plan for your situation. 

Your Local Registered Massage Therapist may work closely with your local endocrinologist. Seeing a Local Registered Massage Therapist in conjunction with a physiotherapist is often a good idea to treat diabetes conditions requiring a Local Registered Massage Therapist. 

It can be any other direction but that’s the general idea. And it’s an acceleration, deacceleration injury when the neck structures have to respond to that force that comes into you. The types of symptoms that you might expect after a car accident and a whiplash injury would be anywhere from moderate to no symptoms at all. And the moderate symptoms generally consist of stiffness in the neck, some mild achiness, maybe some mild headache, and you might feel that you’re more sensitive to cold than you normally are.

The more severe symptoms that people might feel are ringing in the ears, dizziness, loss of memory and pain coming down their arms. With whiplash injuries, there are many factors that go into deciding how much pain you’re going to be in. 

Whiplash is an injury that you experience, that most people experience, from car accidents. You can also have it from a sports injury.

The technical term for whiplash in the medical literature is whiplash associated disorders, or WAD, and that’s what we’re going to refer to it as today. WAD happens when your head is thrown about, usually forward and sometimes backwards and side to side.

It can be any other direction but that’s the general idea. And it’s an acceleration, deacceleration injury when the neck structures have to respond to that force that comes into you.

The types of symptoms that you might expect after a car accident and a whiplash injury would be anywhere from moderate to no symptoms at all. And the moderate symptoms generally consist of stiffness in the neck, some mild achiness, maybe some mild headache, and you might feel that you’re more sensitive to cold than you normally are.

The more severe symptoms that people might feel are ringing in the ears, dizziness, loss of memory and pain coming down their arms. With whiplash injuries, there are many factors that go into deciding how much pain you’re going to be in.

The force of the impact is one, and in some cases – not all cases – people have what they call low velocity injuries, where it’s a slow-moving, low-impact, but the patient experiences a lot of pain afterwards.

And a lot of patients have really bad injuries and have no pain afterwards, and so what’s the difference? The difference is the intangible factors that come into deciding how much pain you have. One of them – or a couple of them – are social factors.

So, how your social life, your home life, your work life is going. If you’re experiencing any anxiety and depression at the time. Also, general health will affect how much pain you experience, so the better your health the less impact it’s going to have, the worse your health you’re going to experience more pain.

Women also tend to experience more pain after car accidents and whiplash injuries, and it’s generally thought it’s the ligament laxity or the joints are a little bit looser in women, they tend to be more flexible, so when impact comes they move more and tend to be injured more during car accidents.

If you have any further questions about whiplash injuries, you can go see your local rehabilitation therapist. Those therapists are either your massage therapist, your physiotherapist or your chiropractor. Presenter: Bodhi Haraldsson, Massage Therapist, Surrey, BC
