Massage Therapy and the Chiropractic
Massage therapy provides many health benefits that go hand in hand with many chiropractic services to enhance healing and strengthen the body and mind. A chiropractor from our practice can include massage therapy in individualized treatment plans for many different illnesses and injuries. By manipulating the soft tissues, blood flow is restored to damaged areas, breaking up inflammation and providing much-needed oxygen that supports the healing process.
Massage Therapy Is Beneficial
Massage therapy is beneficial in many ways. While most people think of improved circulation and the breaking up of knotted areas of muscle fibers, massage therapy also works to improve flexibility and increase range of motion. As the muscles are loosened up, inflammation and tightness are also released, reducing overall pain and discomfort. Because massage therapy works the muscle fibers, it also stimulates the repair and new growth of fibers as well.
As Part of a Chiropractic Care Plan
As part of a chiropractic care plan, massage therapy can help promote healing on every level. Massage therapy is sometimes offered after a chiropractic adjustment to strengthen the muscles and help maintain the natural structure of the area. This enhances the adjustment, making it more effective and long-lasting. Massage therapy can also be used to help maintain balance in the body during healthy times as well.
Effective Pain Management
Massage therapy is also a good addition when included in an effective pain management plan. Pain management involves eliminating the cause of the pain. Massage therapy can loosen tight tissues, eliminating knots and dispersing inflammation. This flushes away fluid and toxins that can cause pain if they are allowed to build up after an injury. As the inflammation begins to disappear, so will much of the overall pain and discomfort.
