Combining Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy

Chiropractic treatment and massage therapy work very well together.
Chiropractors can work wonders on rebalancing the alignment of the
spine as well as relaxing muscles and restoring normal nerve function.
Sometimes the body can be so stiff that it tries to resist the Chiropractic
adjustments.

Having a professional massage will help to relax any muscle tightness
and spasm and help the chiropractor’s correction. Muscles move joints,
while ligaments and fascia support them. If an area of spinal stiffness
with a lot of tension in the surrounding muscles is adjusted without
addressing the soft tissue problem, the tight muscles and shortened
fascia can then pull on the spinal joints making them stiffen up again and
the pain may return. Massage is useful for treating people that are
under constant stress physically, as well as mentally.

You must be aware of the signs your body gives you for spinal stress, so
that you can see your chiropractor on time to get treatment. Spinal
stress as well as causing pain and stiffness can bring on Sciatica, arm
pain, a tingling sensation in the legs, shoulder, and arms and sometimes
numbness in the arms or legs. Therefore, it is important to address
spinal problems immediately.

Chiropractic and massage therapy work effectively to solve these
problems in many cases. They can not only correct the problem but also
restore your natural energy. A person can be healthy in every other
way, but have physical pain caused by tightness and stress. Through
massage and chiropractic techniques they can be helped.

The massage when used with chiropractic treatments is beneficial for
physical injuries such as those that happen in car accidents, injuries that
occur from sports, gardening or a variety of other activities. The immune
system is stimulated by massage and chiropractic treatments along with
blood circulation. By doing massage you are further augmenting the
body’s natural energy to heal.

Clients with a lot of muscle tension who combine chiropractic treatment
and massage therapy often see better, faster, and longer lasting results
because their pain is often due to both soft tissue tightness and spinal
dysfunction. Chiropractic care and massage therapy addresses both
important components of pain. Both offer natural hands-on, drug-free
techniques. They can be used as preventative as well as restorative
therapies. When used in combination, they help you maintain your
optimum health and enjoy life to the fullest!
