I HAVE HAD A CAR ACCIDENT AND BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH WHIPLASH, CAN YOU HELP? WILL MY INSURANCE COVER THE COSTS OF TREATMENTS
Whiplash is the name for the type of neck injury that often occurs when someone hits the back of our car. Tissues in our neck (muscles,tendons, ligaments) in a short space of time contracts, then they are overstreched and "crushed" again. That may lead stiffnes, aches and pains around neck, shoulders and might contribute to headaches even years after the accident. Techniques I use can help to speed up the process of healing within those tissues and prevent problems in the future.
You can claim expenses via your insurance company. I am registered with FHT - Federation of Holistic Therapists. Check with your insurer first if they cooperate with FHT.

DOMS - Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. Anyone who ever done any sports have experienced 1-3 days after workout these specific pains. If you feel aches in your muscles whenever you move, you feel heavy and slow, probably you did too much at the gym.

Also you can try a Sports Massage to speed up your recovery.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS I NEED BEFORE I WILL FEEL BETTER?
Usually after your first visit you should already feel the difference. Of course everyone is different and a lot depends on your actual state of health, lifestyle and how long you struggle with your problem. For example if you suffer with headaches or low back pain for the last 10 years it will take a bit longer t create a change in your body. If you are experiencing pain for the last 2 weeks, your progress will be much quicker.
