Care for Tendinitis and Whiplash

Massage therapy can be a key ingredient to helping you recover from a number of repetitive motion injuries. Tendinitis and whiplash are two of the most common injuries we see here at Everett Therapeutic Massage. See how we can help you recover from these injuries.


Tendinitis is the inflammation of a tendon and can be caused by several factors, including repetitive motions, poor bio-mechanics, poor circulation, and various degenerative conditions. These can cause micro tears in your tendons, causing pain, inflammation, and if left untreated can result in a complete rupture of your tendon.

Massage therapy can work wonders in the treatment of this condition. Your therapist can loosen the surrounding muscles, connective tissues, and cross-fiber friction tendons. Massage therapy from Everett Therapeutic Massage breaks up any remaining scar tissue and adhesions to help push out toxins and promote blood flow to kick-start the healing process.

To further help the healing process, practice regular self-care such as stretching, joint mobilization, pin and stretch techniques, icing, and vascular flushing. For more information about these techniques, read our self-care page, or visit us today.


Whiplash is a rapid acceleration and deceleration injury to your head and neck. Auto accidents account for the bulk of these injuries. A sudden jolting of the head and neck causes them to accelerate faster than your vehicle, which can result in injury to your muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, vertebrae, and other vital structures. The mouth and jaw are also typically involved in these injuries.

Symptoms of whiplash are usually mild neck pain and stiffness, which typically resolve in 4 weeks or less. However, symptoms such as lower back pain, headaches, dizziness, nausea, and numbness, burning, or tingling in the extremities can last much longer.

Massage therapy from Everett Therapeutic Massage can be very effective in the treatment of whiplash-related injuries. Massage works by targeting specific muscles, tendons, and other soft tissue structures in your head and neck. We also use trigger point therapy to help reduce headache pain and allow the muscles to relax.

Passive range-of-motion techniques, along with stretching, are also used to help maintain and increase the range of motion in your neck, while helping to keep you pain-free.

It's important that you keep working on these techniques to reduce the chances of further pain or a loss of movement. Your therapist will give you several self-care techniques you can use in the comfort of your home to keep you in great health during your recovery.

"I have been dealing with variety of issues as a disabled Veteran from the Special Programs US Navy. I have had multiple surgeries from the spine to my shoulder where conventional therapy and other massage therapists simply could not afford a therapeutic solution that would remedy my symptoms. After a year of treatment, I can say positively without a doubt Kerri's attention to detail to include patience in dealing with my routine visits and complaints has affected a positive change. Thank you again Kerri for your constant efforts and dedication in helping with my continued treatment and medical needs. Please continue helping us Veteran's with our disabilities through proactive and homeopathic treatment as it is more productive than the standard."

"Kerri is an amazing massage therapist. Versatile in many ways to heal the body I can't see a single person that would be able to come up with a complaint. After 6 years navy, 4 years armed transport and 7 years as a correctional officer I have received injuries all over my body and have searched ways to improve my life in to minimize my day to day pain. The quality of life she provides me is non replaceable."
