Yes as long as spinal injury has been ruled out by your doctor. Most car accidents involve jolting whiplash injuries to the spine. These injuries respond well to massage, heat, stretching, physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medicine. Injuries to the bones, ligaments, disks, spinal cord and nerves may require bracing or surgery. I would recommend going to the emergency room after a car accident.
