Massage Therapy and Chiropractic: A Winning Formula
Whether performed for therapeutic benefits or pure relaxation, nothing beats a well-done massage. Massage therapy is also a prescribed treatment option for patients suffering everything from a sore back to digestive issues.
While massage is a beneficial stand-alone treatment, it provides even greater advantages when combined with chiropractic care. The two disciplines are distinctly different, but both focus on treating the source of the problem to create better health from within.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is an effective complement for other medical therapies. The treatment can help patients with the following conditions:
Headaches and myofascial pain
Soft tissue pain
Neck and back pain
Injuries from sports, work or car accidents
In addition to medical benefits, massage helps people disconnect from daily stress and focus on healing. The positive feelings can last long after the massage is over.
Options in Massage Therapy
Massage therapy offers a variety of techniques, including:
Trigger point massage
Deep tissue massage
Techniques vary from light stroking motions to intense pressure in key locations to release tension. An experienced, licensed massage therapist will be able to help you choose the right technique for you.
Massage Therapy and Chiropractic
Massage therapy and chiropractic make an excellent combination because each treats a different area to produce optimal wellness and relief from symptoms. While massage focuses on muscles and tendons, chiropractic targets the musculoskeletal system to create unhindered function of the nervous system. When used in tandem, each treatment adds to the benefit of the other.
