Why Add Massage to Your Care Plan?

Woman getting massageWhile chiropractic and massage therapy offer considerable benefits individually, they can be better used together. Both share a common goal of treating the whole body, helping you to achieve a state of well-being without drugs, needles, or surgery. They both focus on trying to resolve the underlying cause of your discomfort rather than treating isolated symptoms or masking them with medication.

Massage Therapy uses a variety of manual techniques to provide more mobility to the body’s soft tissues (muscles, tendons, fascia). These techniques help increase range of motion, blood flow and circulation while decreasing muscle stiffness or tension, pain, inflammation, and recovery time.

Therapeutic Massage with a chiropractic adjustment is often recommended because it relaxes the soft tissue tension that may be perpetuating the poor alignment and can make it easier for the joints to stay in place. As the Chiropractor corrects the structural problems that are causing pain or limiting your mobility, Massage can complement the healing process by increasing circulation, decreasing restrictions, and stretching and relaxing muscles that have been aggravated by these structural problems. The end result is that it easier for you to move without pain, and thus more quickly achieve a state of normal well-being.
