Massage is Not a Luxury.
It is a recognized effective treatment for many heath conditions. The word massage alone can help you relax. Massage therapists use a variety of techniques to address soft tissue problems. Gentle kneading and stretching lengthens contracted muscles and fascia. Techniques such as sustained pressure, ice massage and stretching can release trigger points. Sprains, strains and adhesion can be addressed directly with massage techniques that stimulate healthy separation and realignment of injured fibers.
Massage also increases circulation which helps fascia and muscles soften and lengthen. Good circulation reduces painful swelling and inflammation. This promotes healing by removing waste products and bringing nutrients to your tissues.
What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is the application of massage techniques to achieve specific therapeutic results, such as pain relief or improved range of motion. If you receive chiropractic care without addressing related soft tissue problems, you may still experience pain and reduced mobility. In addition, tight muscles and shortened fascia can reverse the good effects of your chiropractic adjustments. Both massage and chiropractic offer preventative care to support your ongoing good health. Combing massage therapy with a timely visit to the chiropractor can help to re-establish normal alignment before secondary soft tissue problems develop.
