Massage therapy is the manual application of varying techniques and pressures applied to the soft tissues of the body. The goal of massage therapy is to promote relaxation, pain relief, increased circulation and overall wellbeing. Therapists apply these techniques using the hands, forearms and additional massage tools, as needed.
Massage therapy works to treat a range of conditions, including:
- Cancer related swelling and pain
- Depression, stress and anxiety
- High blood pressure
- Joint and muscle pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Range-of-motion restriction
- Sleep issues
- Sports injuries
- Pregnancy related stress
Massage supports Chiropractic. . .
You can benefit in a number of ways by adding massage therapy to your chiropractic care program.
Recovery is normally faster and more complete when you address multiple components of your pain.
Chiropractic treatment often proceeds more easily, with less discomfort, when soft tissue has been relaxed with massage.
You may be less anxious and more ready to receive your chiropractic adjustment after a relaxing massage.
Adjustments frequently last longer when muscle tension is released that might otherwise pull your joints out of alignment again.
. . . Chiropractic supports massage
If you are seeking massage therapy for pain but find your pain persists or recurs after your massage, chiropractic could help.
If your pain involves a spinal misalignment, chiropractic adjustments may give immediate relief.
You may find out that surrounding soft tissue heals quickly once it is no longer subjected to stress of misaligned joints.
The joint movement in chiropractic adjustments can sometimes relax deep layers of soft tissue that can be difficult to reach with massage.
A chiropractor can use x-rays and other diagnostic tests to find other possible causes for your pain.
